What Inspires Me: Throw Pillows

I absolutely love pillows. We (that is I) had planned to soften our venue with handmade plush throw pillows in neutral colors (black, grey, and ivory). (If you’re so inspired to make your own pillows instead of buy them, check out Apartment Therapy’s Easiest Throw Pillow tutorial.) When it became time was something we didn't have enough of (and our budget prohibited the purchase of), we jettisoned the pillows.

Are you using pillows in your decor?
What are you planning on doing with them afterwards?

Pillows can add a splash of color to an otherwise monochromatic venue. (I think turquoise, Pantone’s color of the year for 2010, was a tad overused in weddings last year.)

They can create a seating area where there was none.

They can tie seating areas together by spelling out words or the couple's initials.
