Marsala: Pantone Colour of 2015

Welcome back to the blog!  Its been a funny old week with my youngest being poorly off school for much of it, and poor Mabel has gone into season so she has been refused snuggles on the sofa – very tricky when she glares at you with those big brown eyes…


So, with only half a week at work all I could do is prioritise current orders, which involved some fun design work for a Bristol City FC layout, a vibrant festival style and a New York city personal photo plan.

As yet I can’t share these designs with you so I thought I’d brighten up this grey Sunday with a sneaky peak at the Pantone colour of 2015, MARSALA, from a wedding angle.  With so many gorgeous boards on Pinterest, like the one below made by KnotsVilla, you can instantly visualise this colour integrated into your wedding styling.

This earthy red shade is super versatile utilised as a very soft tone or alternatively punched up for a drammatic edge.  Its not too girly, its not too masculine and certainly a great shade to suit all skin tones.  The season you marry will affect which colours you would use to pair with Marsala – dusty peaches and soft greens in spring – or combine with rich golds for the most elegant of winter weddings.

At I can adapt most of our designs to colourings to suit you big day.  Below are some samples in Marsala tones – the colours easily modified in strength to perfectly compliment requirements, be it personal photo, classic damask, or contemporary typographic styling you opt for, our hand finishing in either silver or gold compliments the styling perfectly.


If there are any designs you would like to see in a Marsala tone on my website please email me at and I’ll be happy to alter the design to suit the tone required, and email you a visual.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. I am off to do some baking with my girls, a coffee and walnut cake – perfect Sunday comfort food.

Thank you for stopping by, Jane


Hello 2015 and the world of Blogging!

Its a cold wintery Sunday morning here in the UK, but perfect timing to kick start a new blog dedicated to following wedding trends and creative styling!

The idea of the blog is not only to inspire newly engaged couples with creative ideas and wedding trends but also to share my journey with life and the online business which I manage with a little help from my husband and his exhibition business, Love Displays Ltd.

So….who and what is

I am Jane and I am I set up the business after starting a family, keen to develop a creative business that would fit in with new family life. I had always been self employed working as a designer alongside my husband in the exhibition industry, and returning to work happened to be a time when our circle of friends were tying the knot.  I found myself designing and producing their wedding table plans. The designs were so well received that it seemed a natural move to create a simple website to sell my designs online…

That was 8 years ago, and the site has since seen significant development with new designs and table stationery added to the extensive portfolio as wedding trends shift.

The print and finish of my table plan designs is done ‘in house’ by my husbands production team, who take great care with each and every order ensuring we exceed customer expectations.  Its a great process as I liaise with the customers and complete the design from start to finish and oversee production and dispatch offering a very unique and personal service which I take great pride in delivering.

Aswell as sharing my office space with my husbands business I also have a special little four legged helper called Mabel who is always by my side, today keeping my feet toasty warm as I set up this blog. Mabel is my working cocker spaniel who certainly does work weekdays at our office hanging out with my colleagues spaniel, Leah. These two are gorgeous together. No doubt they will feature heavily on the blog too…
