"Inspiring Weekend Getaway"

New Bern is a small and quaint town in Eastern North Carolina. 



It is situated at the convergence of two beautiful rivers, Trent River and Neuse River.  Best known as the birthplace of Pepsi in the late 1700s...



.....and the former NC colonial government and state capital, it has spectacular gardens....



(Thought I stumbled upon the Gardens of Versailles)

 lots of  historic homes...



Tryon Palace- NC Colonial Governor's Palace

....quaint shops and cozy restaurants framing it's downtown streets.   It was settled by the Swiss in 1710 and the bear (which translates to bern in Swiss) became the unofficial town mascot.  They were everywhere!




With so much to take in, it was easy to get inspired.  The beautiful gardens made me want to come back and host a garden party...

 or at least add a topiary or two to the front porch...

The scenery also inspired beautiful color palettes....

And the town mascot, well not sure that inspired me at all.

New Bern is a great destination for a short getaway if you just want to chill and maybe even find a little creative inspiration. 



Next up, coastal style.  Until then....
