Whether it is in your home, in your closet, or at your wedding...mustard yellow is one of the most popular colors right now. Try pairing it with crisp white or dark neutrals like navy, aubergine or gray accents so the color really pops. Mustard yellow is a color that will always bring a little light into your life!
This week I´m traveling through Spain with my family and a small group of friends. This isn't my first time in Spain, but it is my first time in Spain with my eight year old son, and I am now seeing everything through his eyes. So far we have hiked to the top of a volcano, admired the beautiful beach, forest and desert landscapes of the south and eaten more than our fair share of jamon Iberico and grilled cuttlefish. We even spent a day in a hospital after my son gashed his knee on a jagged volcanic rock. Those of you who are parents know what it is like to talk a young child through stitches, and doing so in an unfamiliar private hospital without a translator present was not exactly what I bargained for on vacation. Fortunately all is fine now, and I have to admit a glass of mid afternoon sangria helped melt the stress away. A wonderful dinner at a winery awaits!
Sangria and Spanish style have made their way into previous Pineapple events and have always been well received. Below you´ll find a recipe for sangria that is sure to be a welcome summertime treat -- maybe even for your Fourth of July barbecue!
Also below are some pictures of event details that are inspired by Spanish style that we love!

This gorgeous and fun Key Largo wedding was created last spring from our inspiration of bright corals and beachy blues. Recently featured on Style Me Pretty, the bright splash of coral from this wedding has become one of the most stylish colors of the season! From fish bowls, blown glass, and sea urchin cups, this wedding truly captured our inspiration for the natural yet subtly exotic vibe of the Florida Keys.
The ceremony featured a very lush cherry blossom arch highlighting the spring season while coral rose petals carpeted the grass aisle, and staked torches pointed guests in the direction of the ceremony seating.
White peonies and phalaeonopsis orchids, mixed with coral mokara orchids and garden roses, were incorporated into the tablescapes.
