Guest Blogger: {Oh Lovely Day}: Fall Inspiration

September 6, 2011
Hey y'all! Chandra from Oh Lovely Day here. I'm honored to be guest posting while Chrissy enjoys a much deserved vacation! Chrissy asked if I would share a favorite color palette of mine with all of you. Since autumn is quickly approaching I decided to share my favorite color palette for fall weddings.


{color palette} mason jar aqua, pumpkin, mustard, kraft paper brown, cream

{inspiration} the pumpkin and mustard are expected warm fall colors, but they are given a fresh spin and a bit of cheer with the aqua. plus it allows you to accent your decor with mason jars, and who doesn't love mason jars!? finish it off with kraft paper envelopes on your invites, kraft menus or programs, burlap table runners, and some cream accents in your florals or linens. So much better than your standard rust, orange, brown fall palette, no?

And if you are a mason jar lover like I am, come by Oh Lovely Day for a mason jar DIY to bring your fall palette to life! Thanks to all of you for having me and to Chrissy for asking me to post today.
