Board#146: Citron & Fromage

I haven't done a board in a few weeks so it's about time right? Yes ok the title is a little naff... but trust me Citron and Cheese sounded far worse!! I'm not entirely sure it this is citron or chartreuse but they're pretty close aren't they? Whilst I know this isn't a colour for everyone I've always been a big fan of it. I think the trick to using a colour like this in a wedding is to use it merely as an accent to the main event. Small details which make an impact. A sash around a pretty grey dress, in the stationery or linen on your table settings, as a cake topper... just touches here and there.
Today is a huge day for little ol' New Zealand with the opening of the much anticipated (if you're a rugby fan that is... only 90% of kiwis then!) Rugby World Cup. It's time for our city to shine on the world stage and it seems in the past week all of a sudden everything in the central city has had a makeover. At this stage I'm planning on venturing into the crowds for the opening ceremony... or maybe the outskirts of them -  just to soak up the atmosphere and will probably end up on a boat in the harbour to watch the festivities unfold and the huge fireworks display that's planned! Auckland will looks amazing!! Here's hoping we're still celebrating large in 6 weeks time!! Go the All Blacks!! (And no I'm not a die-hard fan but I'm in a family of them and I'll certainly be supporting them!!)
