Even though we’re in the middle of summer, I know there are some autumn brides out there looking for inspiration. And since it’s one of the most beautiful times of year, I didn’t think the rest of you would mind this autumn wedding board, with it’s horseshoe motif and caramel apple details.

Mood: autumn on the farm

Mood: simple summer backyard charm
Palette: strawberry punch, lawn

Have I already mentioned how much I love plaid right now (along with stripes and gingham)? It’s charming and kitschy, and there’s nothing fussy or stuffy about it – and it makes for a great motif. Use it on ribbons, envelope liners, shirts, socks, napkins. Use solid white – and a green lawn – as a backdrop to keep the plaid from looking too busy. I also like this as a take on a pink and green palette, where the pink is punchy and instead of pale.

I love all fruit decorations, but lemons are probably at the top of that list. This delightful centerpiece from Rebecca Thuss‘ own wedding served as the inspiration for today’s wedding board – sugar-dusted lemons in a simple compote dish. White garden roses are a simple and romantic choice for bouquets.

Mood: simple, tart and sweet
Palette: lemon and sugar

If you’re looking for a sweet, personalized gift for your bridesmaids (or your mother, or your sweetheart, or yourself!), you have to check out this custom hand-stamped jewelry by Lisa Leonard Designs. Lisa offers a variety of pieces, from necklaces to key chains to spoons (yes, spoons!), stamped with the monogram or words of your choice in sterling silver. Here are a few of my favorite necklaces…

Lisa originally started her business as a way to spend more time with her two sons, and is inspired by the beauty of the everyday. You can see more about Lisa and her work on her blog, and of course check out all of her pieces over at the Lisa Leonard Designs website.
