This year, I lot of my work has been inspired by Hawaii. The tropical flowers, the colors and the culture are all things that intrigue me about these unique islands. Part of the reason that Hawaii has become an inspiration is that I am getting married in Maui in April! I am super excited and will be bringing you loads of fun DIY posts and ideas for your own wedding or party. However, today, I wanted to talk about Hawaiian shirts. Hawaiian or Aloha shirts are an iconic fashion statement as well as a representation of island culture. There are a variety of styles and most have a bold graphic quality to them which I have grown to appreciate and look to for inspiration. 

So, I wanted to share with you a couple of my favorites finds in the world of Aloha shirts.

Custom Cake Topper

I love having new ideas of my own as well as my clients giving me ideas as well. Collaboration is critical to good design. On that note, see a custom cake topper I created for a client. Their request was to do something Hawaiian theme and with coral colors. This is what we came up with, and it's a beauty!

The saying is "Ku'u Lei Mau Loa" which means My beloved forever.
