Find Me Friday : 4 Fall to Holiday Designs

The turkey’s been eaten (hopefully, there’s still enough for leftovers! . . . ; ), thanks have been expressed, and holiday time is officially in full swing!

This Black Find Me Friday, we’ve got some gorgeous blog finds from all over the web. The transition from Fall colors to greens and whites is certainly enough to get us all in the mood for some beautiful holiday styling!

 
Find #1:  StyleMePretty – Napa Valley Wedding
This beautiful wedding brings in the deep, rich tones of Fall during ceremony + cocktail hour, while moving into cooler platinum and white colors for the reception. . . a perfect décor example of Autumn transitioning to Winter. The Dupionique Iridescence Silver linen creates a sophisticated, sharp look for the reception and pairs exceptionally well with the white and green table dressings.

Find #2:  Style Me Pretty – Vintage Photo Shoot
This absolutely gorgeous photo shoot by Elizabeth Messina (photography), Lisa Vorce (design + coordination), and Mindy Rice (florals + design) is a holiday inspiration with soft tones of green and strong pewters. The Topaz Silver linen brings a chic, high-fashion look to the scene and, if we may say so ourselves, really completes the luxurious feel of the décor.

Find #3:  Hostess With the Mostess – All White
Pure white can be so elegant during Winter. This wedding stands alone in its snow-like beauty while the Windsor White linen adds a sophisticated, modern touch.

Find #4:  Green Wedding Shoes – Green & White Eventscape
Red and green is always a tradition for holiday décor, but if you want some freshness, substitute red for white. The Emma Apple overlay and Dupionique Apple underlay tie in with the color theme and also create a sense of festive cheer!

We hope your Black Find Me Friday isn’t too chaotic and includes some nice time to wind down with leftover turkey + gravy! Happy weekend!

Wed Me Wednesday : Holiday Décor Inspiration

It’s the Wed Me Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and this beautiful real-life wedding at Sunstone Villa is the ideal stepping stone into the fresh, crisp décor of the holiday season.

The photography by KT Merry Photography, is absolutely brilliant and the images capture palpable nuances that amount to epic moments in time. They speak for themselves, but even more so to the viewer, communicating so much in every facet!

The effortlessly striking flowers by Camellia Floral Designs, combined with the deliberate stylings by Joy Proctor, create a motif that is at once romantic and also refreshingly minimalistic. We love the way space is used in the design so that everything is perfectly placed, full, and yet not at all overcrowded.

Even though this wedding is from a nice Summer day, we love how the décor is so versatile — the freshness and neutral tones turn out to be a great foundation for design during the holiday season.

The subdued tones of the linen synch perfectly with the clean limestone of the venue and also allow the other décor elements, such as the greens, flowers, and table settings, to stand out beautifully.

 

Top 5 Things We Love:

5. How the neutral color scheme allows the olive leaves and florals to pop [linen, limestone walls, place settings]

4. Fittingly placed candles [fireplace, tables, staircase]

3. Fresh, light colors of décor [umbrellas, linens, bouquet ribbon]

2. Old-world, yet modern, feel of Sunstone Villa [walls, reception area, wood beams]

1. Minimalistic design with careful attention to each element in the eventscape [napkin+menu+olive branch, cocktail glasses, boutonniere]

Wed Me Wednesday : Contemporary Glam + Sweet Southern Charm

Happy Wed Me Wednesday! This week’s lovely feature was just too filled with rich, gorgeous details and loving thoughtfulness to pass up! Although it may not be a wedding, per se, it’s certainly Wed Me worthy and is a beautiful part of nuptial festivities.

This bridesmaid luncheon, courtesy of GreyLikesWeddings, is overflowing with wow-factor and is totally brought to life through every single detail. First off, the stunning invitations and place cards are filed with fine-tuned craftsmanship, setting the tone for a meticulously designed and planned event. We LOVE the glam aspect of the affair mixed with a sweet, yet sophisticated, liveliness through each and every component from the work-of-art cupcakes to the delightful place settings. Take a peek and see for yourself. . . this event is so incredibly delectable you won’t be able to stop craving its scrumptious style.

*To create a linen look like this, try: New York Copper [Dolce Collection] & New York Brass [Dolce Collection]

What we adore about this event is that it’s not only beautiful, but the careful attention to every facet of design exudes such vibrancy and love. It exemplifies just how friendship with bridesmaids should be: full of fun, sweetness, glamor, and joy. What a way to celebrate with the ladies!

 

Top 5 Things We Love:

5. Glam motif mixed with sweet, feminine elements  [table linen, cake, flowers].

4. That cake (well, all three of them, actually)! [#cakes].

3. Color palette of pinks and golds [flowers, drink table tassels, place settings].

2. Contemporary+traditional feel [linen + flower vessels + flatware].

1. Vivacity and effortless intention in every little detail. . . the specificity just makes the whole room come to life and fills the event with warmth and joy [cupcakes, streamers coming off of layer cakes, composition of tablescape].
