{Festive Fall}: Shades of Orange, Gold, Gray + Lavender

{Shades of Orange, Gold, Gray + Lavender}

Well hello there all you color lovers... and happy Wednesday! I don't know about you, but this week has been a busy one for me what with all the Thanksgiving preparations. So I'm going to keep this post short and sweet! I think it's safe to say that everyone knows that I love the color orange in weddings. And since gray is my favorite neutral, it makes sense to marry these colors. Blending elegance with fun is always on my agenda. So I thought to myself... 'how can I make this elegant palette a smidge more fun?'And then it came to me.. polka dots! Nothing says fun like polka dots. Am I right? {continued...}

I hope you all have a nice holiday. Safe travels, friends...
