a wedding color palette of reds and neutrals (and a perfect palette for the upcoming holidays too)

This week’s color palette of reds and neutrals is beautiful for a wedding. There are  so many red flowers to choose from and foliage and berries to weave into bouquets and centerpieces. We pulled inspiration for you to get you started. And don’t forget wedding magazines and books are sometimes the best place to start to get ideas for your fall parties or holiday celebration decor. We love the books by Tara Guerard, Michael George, Matthew Robbins and Martha Stewart.

Seating cards on a wood stack- this could also be a creative Christmas Advent Calendar by pinning tiny felt pockets or stockings with the date.

coffee and donuts.001

If you plan to dance late into the evening, offering your guests coffee and a sweet treat is a nice thought. You can personalize coffee “sleeves”. Wouldn’t this be fun for Christmas Morning or for late night New Years Eve parties- you could offer coffee or hot chocolate and donut holes with your family’s name or the year on the sleeve.
