As if the name of the Blog wasn’t a dead giveaway, we’re a bit obsessed with featuring all the details that come together to create an incredible wedding day. It’s what we love to showcase and how we shape the content we bring you every DIY Wedding Wednesday, in hopes it inspires you, our lovely readers, to create your own personalized unique events. But we appreciate the big picture is just as important. And actually seeing how the details come together is critical to deciding on whether a look is right for you. So in the spirit of curating content, today we’re combining the Fall focused DIYs from the past four weeks, putting them where they belong, into a fabulous Fall wedding tablescape. And if you love what you see, learning how to get the look is just a click of a link away!
Because the Fall season calls for some serious comfort food, today’s DIY Wedding Wednesday post is serving up an array of yummies. We’re pulling together tried, tested and true Fall treats, by way of the perfect Fall favors. With options that span both the sweet and savory spectrum, your biggest problem will be deciding which one of these five goodies to select for your event. My recommendation, include them all! But not before confirming for yourself that they’re all palette pleasing. Bon appetite!
Fall Favor Idea #1 – Homemade Salsa Goodness
Encourage the release of the inner chef inside each one of your guests by giving them a reason to cook up a storm. Jar your favorite homemade salsa recipe for both a taste of inspiration and a pop of Fall color.
Nothing says Fall like getting bundled up in a warm blanket with a good book and a great cup of tea. Give your guests the key aromatic ingredient by bagging some pumpkin spice loose leaf tea in a lovely organza baggie.
If I had to pick one word to describe the Fall season it would be ‘comfort’. With its vibrant landscape coupled with cool crisp air, by its sheer nature Fall offers up the invitation to cozy up with a blanket and enjoy the view. It’s warm in its essence, and naturally beautiful. It encourages us to slow down and enjoy our surroundings, take the time to appreciate all the little things. With carefree summer days a thing of the past, Fall grounds us in the most soothing and gentle kind of way. It inspires endless heartwarming creative possibilities and it makes me think there may be no lovelier way to think of love than in the context of Fall. So grab a blanket, your beloved, and enjoy the latest installment in the Inspired by Color series, “Warm My Heart”.
When we received Erin + Mike’s wedding, not only were we blown away by the photos (all of which are incredible!), but we were also impacted by the story of their big day. Originally the pair had planned an amazing outdoor ceremony at their favorite New Jersey lake, but with their wedding date in October of this past year, Hurricane Sandy had other plans! With evacuation looming overhead and Mother Nature’s special brand of havoc swirling ever closer, it would be enough to dishearten any couple! But Erin + Mike’s love conquered it all. From their first look and beyond, it’s clear that love is the only thing on both of their minds. And, I’m sure it’s going to be the only thing on your mind too when you see their beautiful autumn wedding with pops of colors, delicate fall leaves and a pair of some of the most amazing wedding shoes ever! Enjoy and congratulations to Erin + Mike – we are so happy to be able to share your inspiring day!
