Autumn is right around the corner!  I know what you are thinking, it’s just the middle of the summer, but soon enough, the kids will be trading shorts and t-shirts for school uniforms and sidewalk chalk for pencils and notebook paper.  But I love autumn, it’s my favorite time of year.  I love crisp days, with all the different colored leaves on the trees, and potted mums everywhere.  I enjoy high school football games, apple and pumpkin picking, and other events of the season. 

Autumn is when I think Mother Nature does her best work, with such a rich pallet of colors to choose from:  red, burgundy, gold, apricot, orange, hunter green, and chocolate brown.  Some of the most visually striking events can also be created with these colors.  Weddings, rehearsal dinners, harvest celebrations, and of course, bridal and baby showers.  A good friend of mine is expecting later this year, so we are planning her shower for the middle of the fall, using a theme of Rustic Elegance.  We ideally want to hold the shower in an old barn, with lots of textural details: pumpkins, apples, candles, cozy fabrics, rich foods, and lots of fragrant flowers and leaves.  I hope this serves as inspiration for your own celebration.  Enjoy!!

“Everything old is new again”, “vintage”, “retro”, or even “what goes around comes around”.  These are phrases you may hear or think of when it comes to planning a vintage or victorian inspired wedding.  With a simple, yet striking and sophisticated, black and white or ivory color scheme, it goes to show that basic is not boring, and neutrals are never out of style.  In this inspiration board, I have used several accessories, such as the feather fascinator, and the detailed ring pillow, to demonstrate that the smallest details can make a stylish impact.  You could add a pop of bright color to break up the black and white, such as lime green, taxicab yellow, or fushia.  Or you could soften this pallete with the palest shades of pink, blue, or lavender.  The results will be visually arresting, and highly memorable.  Enjoy!!
