Love Birds Engagement Party Inspiration Board

Kermit mums, natural branches, and subtle bird accents make this inspiration board sweet and fun. The pops of lime green against ecru and ivory keep the theme from looking too serious and maintains the lightness that is so appropriate for an engagement party.
