Peacock Theme

Theme Thursday, yay! Currently, I'm working with a couple who's theme is Peacock/1920's which is part of the inspiration for today's post. The other part was during my search for a headpiece for my own wedding. I ran across this beautiful headdress.
Now that's a bit audacious for a wedding (or maybe not, depending on the type of wedding), but you can certainly have something similar.
One can go crazy with peacock feathers with how available they are in many different shapes and sizes. In your bouquet, as boutonnieres, in your cake topper, on the cake itself, in your place cards, centerpieces, shoes, invites, and even on toasting glasses! All of this and more you can find on my peacock pinterest board, but for the purposes of this post, I'll gather just a couple of ideas.

First, you want to choose a couple of colors you'd like to focus on. Today I choose teal and gold.
Here's a great invitation to set the tone for the rest of the wedding.
I envision mostly teal with lots of splashes of golf for elegance. Teal table cloth with gold chargers to start and gold chair bows or gold chairs and teal bows.
For the centerpieces, I am a fan of using as few flowers as possible, so a few vases with colored water beads and/or LED lights to color the beads with a few feathers coming out of the top would be lovely. Add some gold and/or teal votive candle holders around the table.
Here's a gorgeous cake that could be transferred to a wedding cake.
Add this sash except exchange the teal for gold, leaving the teal flower and peacock feathers...

And we're done! Let me know what themes you'd like to see me post about in the comments below.
