Style Inspiration: True Blood's Fairies

Fashion, favors, and reception décor inspired by HBO's True Blood (the fairies, not the vampires).

We're appointing Claire Pettibone as the unofficial gown designer of the nouveau–fairy dress style. The designer's penchant for ethereal fabrics, soft colors, floral embroidery, and the occasional flicker of beading would be right up any pixie's alley.
