An Unexpected Autumn Wedding with Burnt Orange Orchids

Happy almost-Thanksgiving!

Around this time last year I shared a bunch of fall inspired dinner party ideas, (check them out here) but THIS year I seem to be covering all sorts of new ground. Last week a tropical orchid heavy fall wedding. This week…..an unexpected autumn wedding idea board awaits you.

I loved the use of orange orchids last week, so I thought why not do more with them? This week I’ve looked for more burnt orange orchids, to really hone in on this seasonal wedding idea I have. This is more of a traditional fall wedding, but still keeps that lovely orchid beauty that is so light but impactful.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Purple and Orange Orchid Wedding Ideas

Is it winter yet?

Honestly, the weather we have been having here in Florida makes me second guess what my calendar has been telling me. It’s hot, humid, and generally pretty sunny out. It’s hard to imagine some of the fall idea boards I’ve been sharing the last few weeks in a tropical climate like this.

Naturally, I had to wonder what would be a tropical friendly fall wedding look like? Here’s what I had in mind:

As you can tell, lots of orange orchids with purple accents are what I went with.

Romantic Botanical Fall Wedding Ideas

A little over a year ago I shared with you an “Outdoor Fall Wedding Ideas” inspiration board post. I loved that inspiration board, as I love each board that I make, but I especially loved the polished perfection that inspiration board included. Very neat lines and shapes with perfectly coordinated colors made for beautiful inspiration.

This week I wanted to do something the along the same fall-lines, but different, with a more natural-beauty-but-still-refined, styled wedding. Still perfect for a fall wedding, this week’s wedding inspiration board has a whole other type of relaxed and cozy feel to it that I am enjoying immensely at the moment.

A Rustic Foodie’s Dessert Party – Fall Edition {with salted caramel and lace}

On most days, I would not consider my style anywhere along the descriptive terms: chic, country, or rustic.

But this week I make an exception for that. This week I am sharing with you my idea of a rustic, foodie’s dessert party. A party that is farm-to-table fresh, cooked and prepared with love, and boasts great company and delicious wine. I love the emphasis of salted caramel desserts lining a lace and burlap table, allowing guests to graze on delicious treats as they mingle with other attendees. The only thing that’s missing would be a handful of accent candle lights, in mason jars, of course, scattered around.

Keep in mind as you are enjoying this party idea board, that this set of inspirational images could easily translate to a birthday party theme, or even a wedding.
