A crispness fills the air, there’s a brisk breeze, and colors are bursting at every turn – there’s something about Autumn that is so warm and welcoming. Whether it is the bold color palette that nature takes on, or it is the subtle rustic theme that comes through in decor and design in the fall months, we love Autumn and are always striving to bring out the best in our seasonal designs.
As the cool nights draw closer and Autumn gears up, we are excited to share how to have a tasteful Autumn event. Inspired by one of our favorite creative collaborations, our Wolf Creek shoot, we will share how to encapsulate fall through complimentary colors and textures that might not be so obvious.
Whether you’re planning an outdoor occasion surrounded by Autumnal beauty, or you’re wanting to incorporate touches of fall to your indoor affair, keep reading to find creative ways to pull off a tasteful Autumn event.
Complimentary colors: When we think of decorating for Autumn, our minds often go to the standard color scheme: rusty red, burnt orange, or bright yellow. But to make your event truly pop, consider going beyond the basics to compliment and contrast the colors of the season. In the Wolf Creek Styled Shoot, we explored charcoal grays, crisp whites, and beautiful beige themes to coincide with the wooded yellow venue. Traces of elegance were added in through subtle copper details that were sprinkled throughout the ceremony.
Unique textures We have all seen the burlap and rustic barn doors make an appearance at an Autumn event. And the twine and the tweed shows up without fail. But Vivince likes to explore unique textures that guests may not be expecting.
For example, the feather-covered wall photographed below added a quiet elegance and earthy beauty that contrasted with the foliage behind it.
Fall-themed food and drinks: Whether you’re taking an elegant twist on Apple cider, or you’re weaving cinnamon spiced goodness into the hors d’oeuvres, fall-themed treats can be a surefire way to incorporate seasonal snacks with a classy take. In this particular event, we chose pie for the warm colors and comforting flavors it brought to the table. How comforting are these stunning pies that dot the photos with color?
Fresh floral: Deep and dramatic or fresh and crisp, either way you lean, your fall-themed floral decor will add something special and sweet. We chose to take a unique twist on florals with bright whites and earthy greens that would contribute to the natural landscape and copper tones that surrounded us.
