Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! To end on a green note, I thought I’d share some beautiful green inspiration from around the web. Cheers!

Today’s Well Sent comes from a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired wedding photoshoot by Rebecca Hansen. This beautiful event was designed around a green, white and gold color palette and 60’s vintage elements.

While I normally would only highlight the paper details in this column, the elements around this shoot are utterly stunning and too good not to share! Enjoy all the lovely details on the Ruffled blog and be sure to check out the full gallery as well.

Just Plain Lucky!

Another adorable St. Patrick’s Day project to add to the list! Created by Alexandria Hedin, these Just Plain Lucky Tees are perfect for the whole family! Simple and super adorable and just the right amount of charm! Get the instructions and template from Alexandria’s blog.

Fun little story, Alexandria and I went to high school together here in Seattle and ended up working together at Starbucks in the creative department. We both went on to separate jobs and lost touch but have since reconnected through the blog world. I love the web connections and friends I’ve made over the years and I’m so fortunate to be surrounded but such talented people!

St. Patrick’s Day is only a few days away but there are still plenty of fun and creative projects to do in time. I personally like ones that involve at least a little sugar and this one definitely delivers!

I can hardly think of anything better than seven lucky layers of yummy cake! Amanda, of I Am Baker, put this beautiful shamrock cake together by gradually adding food coloring to each layer before cooking.

Wether for St. Patrick’s Day or not, I love the look of a gradated cake and hope to make one of my own some day. Truly stunning!

Today’s Well Branded comes from Fbdi in Buenos Aires. Created for a local speakeasy named Frank’s, it just screams prohibition to me. I really like the roughness of the design, from the cropped logo to the blind embossed “FRANK’S”, every element is on message. While usually hard to pull off, I also think the distressed serif  is a nice touch.
