Olive Green Wedding or Party Inspiration

Olive green is said to be a popular wedding color for 2012. I am a big fan of almost all shades of green, but I think olive green can be the most sophisticated and elegant (and timeless) or all green shades.

I hope these olive green items inspire you for your wedding or party.

Tree Inspiration, Etsy Artists: for weddings or parties

I have always been attracted to trees as a source of inspiration in my art.  Trees can be a great theme for your wedding or party.  They represent life:  sheltering us from the sun, producing oxygen, create homes, paper products, etc.  And of course they are beautiful to look at.  There are an estimated 100,000 species of trees, and the oldest tree is approximately 4,844 years old (the Great Basin Bristlecone Pine).
