Monday’s Finding: Tablescape Inspiration

Today I thought I would post some of my favorite tablescapes I have pinned as of late. I’ve got just about every style of wedding represented: glam, classic, goth, shabby chic, vintage, modern, etc. We are talking some major inspiration for your own reception decor. For those of us (like myself) on a tight budget, you can use these ideas and pick one or two details to focus on, find ways to DIY, substitute more expensive materials with budget friendly ones, or borrow the color scheme and still come off with a gorgeous tablescape your guests will love. So without further ado…EYE CANDY!

Friday’s Favorites: Signs, Burnt Orange Deets, and Marie Antoinette inspiration from the Belle Memorie Tumblr

TGIF! I’m really looking forward to the weekend. Tomorrow is our cake tasting and Mr. Wondermous and me are bringing the kiddo with us. In addition to our wedding cake, we want to do special cupcakes for the kids with their very own flavor. So, the kiddo is coming along to pick the kid’s cake flavor and then we are going to get him fitted for his tux. It’s hard to believe our wedding is seven months away!

For today’s Friday’s Favorites, I have two Etsy treasuries based on this week’s posts: wedding signage and burnt orange details. Then, I’d like to introduce you to the Belle Memorie Tumblr’s posts on Marie Antoinette inspiration. Enjoy!

‘Burnt Orange Wedding Details’ by ravengrrl

Burnt orange is great for Fall weddings, but when paired with an equally saturated bright such as fuschia or purple, it becomes a great Summer color palette.

I’ve started a Tumblr for those ideas and whims I tend to get, that may or may not deal with weddings. It’s a step beyond the blog and my Pinterest boards. As of late, I’ve been drawn to Rococo and Marie Antoinette style, so today I’ll have a few Tumblr posts for inspiration. Here is the link to the main Belle Memorie Tumblr: http://bellememorie.tumblr.com/

Wedding Wednesday: Burnt Orange Color Palette Request

Today’s Wedding Wednesday boards come via a request from Carlaa who is having her wedding next July with burnt orange as the main color in her color palette. To keep a color such as burnt/dark orange from looking too “Fall,” the solution is to pair it with an equally saturated bright. So, here are three different color possibilities that I hope will help those of you who love orange and want to incorporate it in to your own Summer time wedding.

Monday’s Finding: Perfect Pumpkin Details

Hello Fall! It’s a gorgeous Fall day here in Denver with a high of 73. Such a nice break from the near hell temperatures that we had over the Summer.

Today’s finding is all about that cornerstone of Fall wedding decor, the pumpkin. There are so many great ways to incorporate pumpkins in to every Fall design style be it rustic or glam. Carve your monogram in to a pumpkin for a great escort table arrangement or cover pumpkins in lace for a vintage feel. Today I have lots of possibilities for incorporating pumpkins in to your Fall fete.

My personal fave? The amazing green cut out patterned pumpkins. Not only is the color out of the ordinary, but such amazing cut work that gives the pumpkins a lacy feeling.

Prayers for Aurora, CO and Friday’s Favorites

It’s been a very surreal overnight for us here in CO. The theater where the shooting took place is three miles from my house and we are all doing roll calls to be sure those we know were not directly affected. Please continue to pray for the loved ones of those who died in this tragedy, the injured, and those who are still trying to disarm a potential bomb/bombs at the suspect’s apartment. Words cannot express how sad I am at this moment. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.

While I am extremely saddened at shocked about this morning’s events, those who perpetrate these sort of insanely violent events will not cause me to hide in fear. With that said, here is today’s Friday’s Favorites:

Jump, jive, and wail at your 50s diner themed wedding. Think about collecting old diner mugs and dishes, a milk shake bar, pie instead of a wedding cake, renting and old juke box, and diner tickets for menus.
