Alright, you guys! I just can’t get over the dark moody florals I’m seeing this season. Our last round up was all about white pumpkins and was so nice and bright, but I have been itching to get back to the dark side. I’ve rounded up some beautiful bouquets that are either completely dark and moody or have some serious pumps of dark that bring such character to lighter bouquets. Ready to swoon with me?
LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:
ONE: Is anyone here a SYTYCD or Dancing with the Stars fan? This is Whitney’s wedding bouquet… and it’s a STUNNER. That trailing foliage. *sigh*
TWO: Purples are one of those colours that play SO well with the dark and moody theme. This one’s wild and wandering shape is near perfection.
THREE: This bouquet is actually a light and neutral bouquet without the darker foliage. The deep hued leaves are such a simple way to play into the darks!
FOUR: I’m such a sucker for black centred anemones and this bouquet plays off the dark centres with some larger dark blooms. Also… those dark lips!
FIVE: This is the darkest I’ve found that doesn’t look a single bit tacky. It’s lovely in fact! So now you know you can go *almost* black in every sense of the word and still be lovely.
SIX: Did you know that succulents could be dark and moody? Oh, they totally can! And this beautifully organic bouquet is amazing. Period.
Do you have a favourite? I’m still swooning over Whitney’s. But those anemones are a close second.
I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’re diving into fall and loving every minute of it. Today we’re bringing a super simple 2 minute DIY to dress up your autumnal table. Yep, these gold lettered autumn leaves place cards. And oh, they’re even more shiny and stunning in real life.
There’s only one thing you need to make these. It’s our dear friend, Liquid Gold. Grab it at Michaels along with a round tip paint brush and get painting. We totally love how simply this transforms a matte fall leaf to a shiny textured gem of a place card.
We painted directly on the leaves BUT if you are planning to make these for a wedding and want to prepare ahead of time, the leaves won’t last too long. There is a trick to make them keep longer though! Clear sealer. Our friend Colleen shares all about how she uses it to keep leaves fresh right here.
What do you think? Would you try this out? It’s such a simple way to up your fall tablescape game. They’re perfect for wedding place cards (you know that was our first thought!) but they’d also be lovely for a Thanksgiving table.
If you try out this DIY we would LOVE to see it in action! Tag us @bespokedecor on social.
Another fall post? It’s that time, friends! Today we’re talking pumpkins at weddings. How very autumnal, right? But not just any pumpkins- white pumpkins. Because they’re the cutest and we really do LOVE them at weddings.
LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:
ONE: Not only do we love white pumpkins (especially when they’re mini!) but we love them mixed with beautiful golden ones too!
TWO: This wedding ceremony site is totally stunning. We love that they embraced the season and scattered pumpkins down the aisle. How lovely!

THREE: This sprawling centrepiece with florals, pumpkins, antlers and candles is a monochromatic dream! It’s rustic thanks to the antlers, but not in the burlap, we’ve seen you 100 times way. It’s just SO good.
FOUR: Well aren’t they the cutest! We had to add that pumpkins make the sweetest photo props at fall time. Especially with some lovely lettering.
FIVE: Mini boo pumpkins (thats what grocery stores call the white ones, cute huh!) make the perfect seating chart for guests and they can double as favors if you like!
SIX: Last but not least… the pumpkin vase! They can be done so well, you guys! This one is so lovely with the grayed out pumpkin, tulips, and seeded eucalyptus. But seeded eucalyptus is one of my favourite greens, so perhaps that’s why I’m crushing on it so hard?
Tell me… what’s your fave out of these? I’m dying over that centrepiece, so I’ll have to say that one. Like it needs to be on my table come thanksgiving.
