Burlap Monogram Runner.  Burlap has been popping up everywhere lately, and we are loving it.  We’re feeling an upcoming post about all things burlap.  But until then, check out this awesome ceremony runner, combining two of our favorite things, burlap and monograms!  The color and texture of the burlap keeps the runner from feeling too fussy, while the trim allows for the right amount of customization.  This would be great for either an indoor and outdoor ceremony, and we think fall is the perfect season for this runner’s debut!

Bright Florals + Pumpkin. Fall is finally here, which means we are on the lookout for great ways to incorporate fall’s most festive decoration…pumpkins!  And while pumpkins are beautiful in their natural orange color, we love the mix of this white painted pumpkin with the bright florals.  If you want to incorporate seasonal favorites without feeling too pinned down to a color scheme, consider paint as a great way to transform a seasonal favorite!

Crate Cakestand.  So if you can’t tell already, we’re thrilled that fall is here.  And this crate cakestand is another example of just how magical fall is; it somehow manages to make everything old and withered extra special!  These crates take the cake to a whole new level, making it a true focal point.  We could imagine a similar set up with bales of hay or vintage suitcases, all great ways to make a cake sing.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, this week we’re sharing our favorite “green” pins!

Succulent Centerpiece.  We’re used to seeing centerpieces bursting with color from various floral elements, but we love the approach below which features a centerpiece composed of different succulents.  Mix in various varieties, shapes, and sizes, and you’ve got yourself a fabulously green focal point.  Succulents are fairly easy to care for, so if you’re going the DIY approach, you’ve got plenty of time to collect them ahead of time.  And for that extra bang for your buck, give succulents to guests as favors as they leave!

Minty Green Cake Stand
.  We love all shades of green, but if bright isn’t your thing, go minty!  We love the shade of this cake stand and how it makes the pale pink cake shine a little bit brighter.  Mint green is the perfect compliment to so many shades of pink, yellow, blue, and cream, and there are so many ways to infuse the minty color into your big day!

Let Guests Take Away Green.  Don’t let your love for green end after the reception; keep the green theme going by giving your guests green favors!  We love these matchbook seed favors, because they embrace the green theme in color and in environmental love.  What better way to honor the color green than to give guests a way to beautify the planet?
