Decorating for a wedding close to the holidays can be difficult. You can’t ignore that everyone is in the full holiday spirit but you also don’t want your wedding to feel like just another holiday party. How do you decorate in that middle ground? This year West Elm stores are decked out in the perfect holiday décor so take some notes.
classy with a touch of holiday spirit
Steer clear of the obvious red, white, green and blue holiday color palettes and choose something neutral. Decorate in shades of cream, metallic and glitter. Try mixing paper flowers made from newsprint or book pages with silver plates and a shimmery table runner.
And these glittery XOs play perfectly into a loving wedding theme. Simply cover some wooden letters in glue and glitter than hang from ribbons for the perfect reception decoration.
Happy Thanksgiving! Today seems like the last chance to celebrate an autumn wedding theme since it is the first official day of the winter holiday season and we’ll soon be swept up into the glitter and wrappings that come with it. So take a moment to remember the rich, warm colors and delicious treats from the fall.
Fall is also a great season for simple, do-it-yourself wedding projects. Wrap votive holders with fake autumn leaves with a rustic tie to quickly dress up your reception tables. Build a tower of cupcakes sprinkled with fall color and/or bake miniature pies with leaf print tops for a laid-back dessert. Pull together your fall wedding with other autumnal color touches such as brown bridesmaids’ dresses, pumpkin centerpieces and foliage inspired escort cards.
It has been cold and rainy on the east coast but this orange wedding has been a bright spot this week. The vibrant colors yet classic settings make this wedding fun and modern while still keeping it a formal affair. It was the best color palette for my last summery wedding plan. Hopefully this weekend have a bit more sunshine!
Those orange escort cards deserve the perfect reception setting and I think I’ve found just the one. This orange and white tent is fun yet refined – the perfect balance. Plus you know I love a good paper lantern, especially in bright color and especially in clusters of the same hue. These tables include the actual fruits and extend that pattern in the paper lanterns, also both orange and circular.
I also like the family-style reception tables. They give your wedding a more laidback, comfortable style. All around perfect for this week’s orange wedding.
