Theme Thursday: Peaches and Cream Regency Era Inspiration

Today’s Theme Thursday is a bit on the subtle side of things, but I just love this peaches and cream Regency Era (Jane Austen’s time period) inspiration board. I’m particularly fond of the wedding topper lollipops (yes, those are lollipops!) from Andie’s Specialty Sweets (an Etsy Virtual Bridal Show team member).

If you are searching for a Jane Austen Regency inspired bridal gown, designer, Claire Pettibone has several dresses, which would certainly fit within the theme without being strictly period. The dress featured in the board is from her continuing collection and is appropriately named, Emma. Here are a few others:

The Regency era aesthetic is all about: cap sleeves, empire waists, pointed shoes…

gorgeous updo’s

English garden style florals, lace, cameos…

cut away jackets and cravats for the men (Really, I was just looking for an excuse to post a Colin Firth “Pride and Prejudice” pic.)

and for those who could afford it: tea, lots of tea. Here is a Regency era tea caddy. Note the keyhole. Tea was extremely valuable and kept under lock and key.

Here is today’s inspiration board. I hope you love it as much as I do. Have a great day!
