There’s nothing more quintessentially Fall than a pumpkin, but how exactly do you add pumpkins to your big day in a classy and stylish way? Introducing the pumpkin flower arrangement! Simply cut a pumpkin in half, scoop out the yucky insides and replace with an abundance of Fall flora.

We recommend keeping these flowery fiascos to your tables only. Walking down the aisle with a pumpkin may just look a little too corpse bride!

 

Burgundy and Gold Table Layouts

If you’re wedding is situated in the gray zone between Winter and Fall, it’s essential to bring in elements of both seasons when it comes to your decorations.  Combining burgundy, a typical Fall color and gold, a typical festive color, is a stunning way to do this!

We suggest beginning with a shimmery, gold table cloth and then topping with a burgundy table runner. If glitter is a bit too ‘Little Saint Nick’ for you, opt for a matte tablecloth , such as our hand embroidered rectangular table cloth. The subtle leaf embroideries on this piece make it a total winner for an Autumnal theme too!

Carry on this Fall-appropriate theme with our damask style table runner. This piece is sure to add an on-trend retro vibe to your wedding tables too!

If you really want to make an Autumnal impact, present your ‘guest plaque’ on a burnished orange table runner, such as our hand painted deluxe floral table runner.

The Perfect Fall Bouquet

Your bridal bouquet is meant to be three things: feminine, beautiful and complimentary to your wedding theme. Flowers themselves have the first two points covered, but how exactly do you give a bouquet a Fall edge? Simply add some darker pink or red flowers for a seasonal appropriate look. If you really want to be unique, twigs of berries can look beautiful in a bouquet too!

An Aisle of Leaves

With a Fall wedding on the mind, it’s safe to assume that you and your partner are lovers of the outdoors. Bring the beauty of Fall nature directly to your wedding ceremony by adding lines of leaves either side of the isle. How beautiful! Best of all, it won’t cost you a cent!

Your Perfect Valentine’s Day Dinner

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, staying in is the new going out. Restaurants on Valentines night are overbooked and let’s be honest, noisy! I don’t mean to sound like your Gran here, but nothing says romance like good-old-fashioned conversation.

So this weekend, turn your dining room into a date-night haven with my tips. Whether you’re planning a first date, something special or an anti-valentines with the girls, we’ve got you covered!

For The First Date-rs

Whether you’re inviting over that hottie from the office or that hunk/honey you simply swiped left on, the general rule with first dates is to keep that cringe factor low. So if you had heart shaped balloons and giant teddies in mind, give them a miss! Nothing screams ‘I am clingy; LOVE ME and have my babies’ like a fluffy, pink bear. And it’s waay too late to swipe right now…

Gifts

Giving that this date could potentially be the pre-lude to either a love story or a horror novel, I really wouldn’t be going all-out with the gifts. Flowers (NOT roses) or a nice bottle of wine will suffice.

The Table Layout

Simple is the key! Make a classy and sophisticated first impression by choosing neutral tones and timeless patterns. Highlight the center of your table with the chic jacquard table runner in beige. Top with burnished silver candles for a timeless touch with a hint of romance.

Beige

To stick with this classic, neutral theme, opt for the sophisticated two tone place mats.

As for embellishments, keep your serve wear clean and white. Flowers, cut-out hearts and balloons are a HUGE no! But feel free to turn up the romantic heat with a couple of candles.

The Soundtrack

Your ipod in shuffle mode.

Given that you probably don’t know your dates musical preferences, it’s best to play it safe and provide variety. Make sure to include some older tracks in there too, there’s no better conversation starter than childhood tunes!

 

For The Long Term-ers

You and your other half are happily living together and, chances are, you eat dinner together every single night. The trick here is to create a fun and romantic atmosphere to make it special, so get out those flowers, candles and cut-out hearts pronto!

Gifts

Set yourselves a budget before hand if you’re worried he/she will go all out! For men, a bottle of cologne is always a yes! If you’re wanting to treat your lady, why not get here a nice piece of jewellery? Even if you have agreed on no gifts, a single red rose for her is always a must.

The Table Layout

You know each others sense of humor down to a tee, so embrace this with a cheesy, yet suitably romantic, table layout.

Get this cute cottagey vibe of this dog-tooth print with the modern squares rectangular tablecloth. Next, print in cupids color with the saree border table runner.

Dot your table runner with elegant tall candles and sprinkle heart shaped confetti to your…erm…hearts content! These heart-shaped place-mats can easily be made with a heart shaped stencil and felt. However, if your are not quite Martha Steward, you could opt for some solid red ones. The floral embroidered place mats have a suitably romantic floral decal.

Most importantly, add a unique touch with a hand-made note to your other half. Even if it looks like something a five year old could have created with their eyes closed, they will still appreciate it!

You could even up the cheese factor by adding photographs of you throughout the years along your table runner. Altogether now: ‘Memoriessss’.

The Soundtrack

’50 Shades Of Grey’. Although the movie itself may be a red card in your eyes, rest assured that its soundtrack is suitably romantic, with that little edge of spice.

Gifts

If you’re shopping for your girl, get her something cute. A little teddy, heart shaped chocolates or a heart-shaped necklace are all sure to make her cheeks blush. As for him, how about a cute photo frame with your favorite shot of you. Also, never underestimate the power of a card!

Table Layout
