fruit can take the place of flowers for your centerpieces

Compotes or bowls of fruit can be beautiful centerpieces. Forgo the costly floral arrangement and pick up a fruit that coincides with the color palette of your wedding or celebration. Clementines, oranges and kumquats (which symbolize good luck in Asia) are a perfect choice this time of year. Above clementines and kumquats are paired with succulents for a chic table setting. Mixing gold, silver and glass as neutral elements allow the orange to pop. Having a lot of guests for the holidays?

this week’s color palette: citrus- orange, lemon & lime…with gray

This week’s color palette was inspired by a story I styled for Martha Stewart Weddings about citrus. Photographer Sang An shot this beautiful image.

These Benjamin Moore paint color selections are very true to the vibrant citrus. I chose Gray Lake because it has a slight green tint to it and works within this color family. I’ll keep sharing the citrus story I styled this … Read more
