Board #540 | Gingerbread & Pear

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I find myself thinking of family and feasts, which I think would be an excellent theme for a wedding. For today’s inspiration board, using seasonal colors (flavors) of gingerbread and pear, I imagined an intimate wedding dinner at a favorite restaurant. Since my own reception was held at a restaurant, I’ve seen what a wonderful choice it can be for a wedding celebration, especially if it’s a chance to share one of your favorite places with your closest family and friends. Decorations would be simple here, just candles and fresh pears. And menus would be perfectly designed (Cynthia Warren comes to mind), with each guest’s name at the top of the menu at his or her seat.

Mood: rich, intimate
Palette: molasses and chocolate browns, pear and olive leaf greens, gold
