Alright, you guys! I just can’t get over the dark moody florals I’m seeing this season. Our last round up was all about white pumpkins and was so nice and bright, but I have been itching to get back to the dark side. I’ve rounded up some beautiful bouquets that are either completely dark and moody or have some serious pumps of dark that bring such character to lighter bouquets. Ready to swoon with me?
LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:
ONE: Is anyone here a SYTYCD or Dancing with the Stars fan? This is Whitney’s wedding bouquet… and it’s a STUNNER. That trailing foliage. *sigh*
I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’re diving into fall and loving every minute of it. Today we’re bringing a super simple 2 minute DIY to dress up your autumnal table. Yep, these gold lettered autumn leaves place cards. And oh, they’re even more shiny and stunning in real life.
There’s only one thing you need to make these. It’s our dear friend, Liquid Gold. Grab it at Michaels along with a round tip paint brush and get painting. We totally love how simply this transforms a matte fall leaf to a shiny textured gem of a place card.
We painted directly on the leaves BUT if you are planning to make these for a wedding and want to prepare ahead of time, the leaves won’t last too long. There is a trick to make them keep longer though! Clear sealer. Our friend Colleen shares all about how she uses it to keep leaves fresh right here.
What do you think? Would you try this out? It’s such a simple way to up your fall tablescape game. They’re perfect for wedding place cards (you know that was our first thought!) but they’d also be lovely for a Thanksgiving table.
If you try out this DIY we would LOVE to see it in action! Tag us @bespokedecor on social.
Another fall post? It’s that time, friends! Today we’re talking pumpkins at weddings. How very autumnal, right? But not just any pumpkins- white pumpkins. Because they’re the cutest and we really do LOVE them at weddings.
TWO: This wedding ceremony site is totally stunning. We love that they embraced the season and scattered pumpkins down the aisle. How lovely!
(if you know where this image is originally from, please let us know! From what we can tell it was uploaded directly to Pinterest)
THREE: This sprawling centrepiece with florals, pumpkins, antlers and candles is a monochromatic dream! It’s rustic thanks to the antlers, but not in the burlap, we’ve seen you 100 times way. It’s just SO good.
FOUR: Well aren’t they the cutest! We had to add that pumpkins make the sweetest photo props at fall time. Especially with some lovely lettering.
FIVE: Mini boo pumpkins (thats what grocery stores call the white ones, cute huh!) make the perfect seating chart for guests and they can double as favors if you like!
SIX: Last but not least… the pumpkin vase! They can be done so well, you guys! This one is so lovely with the grayed out pumpkin, tulips, and seeded eucalyptus. But seeded eucalyptus is one of my favourite greens, so perhaps that’s why I’m crushing on it so hard?
Tell me… what’s your fave out of these? I’m dying over that centrepiece, so I’ll have to say that one. Like it needs to be on my table come thanksgiving.
When you think of autumn weddings, do you think of bold orange and red hues? I do too, but lately I’ve been spying a new trend- autumn neutrals. And can I just tell you that I’m loving it!? It’s sophisticated, a bit boho, and crazy elegant. Ready to see what I’m talking about?
LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:
ONE: Just looking at this photo makes me want to be there. Isn’t it stunning? Fall weddings and moody weather go hand in hand and they make for dynamite photo opps.
TWO: This bouquet started my mission and sucked me into Pinterest. I can’t get enough of the foraged fall fillers in this bouquet and how wild it looks!
THREE: This is perhaps my favourite of them all… but I might be slightly biased. These mini pies were the perfect dessert for our fall fete last year.
FOUR: We’re on board the naked cake train and this one oozes fall glam. If you love boho nordic style, you should really check out that whole shoot, it’s stunning.
FIVE: These place cards aren’t from a fall wedding, but they look like they should be! Gilded florals and pinecones paired with calligraphy? Heck yes.
SIX: This table couldn’t be more perfectly elegant. We are in love with the florals they’ve paired and you should probably click over just to check out the gorgeous setting. Anyone have a manor house like this we can use for a wedding? Please?
SEVEN: One of the things we spotted over and over again in our searches around this theme is floral crowns full of deeper hued greenery and wild blooms. Isn’t this stunning?
I really can’t get enough of this palette. It’s like a cozy blanket but ridiculously beautiful. Which inspiration image is your favourite? I’m just so taken with that last image, the wind in her hair and that floral crown. I’d love to hear yours!
