The Girl Who Chased the Moon – Coral and French Blue Wedding

Can you think of any sweeter, southern inspiration than The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen? I think it would be pretty hard to find. You can find Garden Spells here and The Sugar Queen here but today is all about the charming, small-town enchantment of The Girl Who Chased the Moon. Like the other two books in this series, food and sweets play an enormous part in the story, so be prepared with a cupcake or two before you dive in! This story centers around purely southern fare: hummingbird cakes, apple stack cake, snickers cake – you name it! Characters have a ‘sweet sense’ that can lead them right to baking goodies, so a range of cakes in comfort food flavors would be the perfect fit, along with honey BBQ and sodas in old glass bottles.

The Girl Who Chased the Moon - Navy and Coral Preppy Southern Wedding

The story centers around the legacies and family traditions of two families in the BBQ town of Mullaby, each with their own secrets to hide. The lazy summer tone of the novel inspired a palette of vibrant coral and rich French blue, crisp linen suits, and flowers growing just a little bit wild. A crescent moon charm has a part to play, and I couldn’t help but fall in love with the moon backdrop, watching over the first dance! I’ll let you discover the other hints to the story itself – you’ll be glad you did! The Peach Keeper is up next week and then, at last, Lost Lake will be out on January 21st!
