Summer wedding colors: SEA FOAM GREEN!

Ever wondered about the origins of those fascinating bits of colored "stones" known as sea glass? Well, they start out as broken shards of old bottles and other glass items washed out to sea. These are then weathered by the elements into those beautifully decorative nuggets in colors ranging from clear to pale blue to sea green to amber to the very rare reds and oranges.

The particular hue of sea glass that I'm in love with for a summer wedding is what is called "sea foam green" or sometimes "tea green." Whatever the name, it's a lovely, romantic, and fresh hue that you can use throughout your weddingfrom the tablescape to favors to sweet treats and even sea glass jewelry for the bridal party!
