Notes from an Intern: Something Blue

From intern Brittany:

You all know how the saying goes, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” But where does it come from? This tradition comes from England with the original rhyme being, “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe.” The four objects spoken of, being carried by the bride on her walk down the aisle, brings good luck to both her and her marriage.

No need to stress too much about these tokens, they can be any little objects of love from mom, siblings, relatives, a friend or something that you give to yourself that makes you smile. Something old is said to represent continuity, something new being optimism for the future, something borrowed to symbolize borrowed happiness and something blue to stand for purity, love and fidelity.

Now, the something old, new and borrowed usually seem to be the easier things to find, but what about the something blue? If you are not in reach of anything in that hue, what do you do? Here are some cute, fun and creative ways to add that needed Blue pop to your set of “Something Four!”
