Board #425 | Autumn Olive Green

With temperatures here in Austin still in the 90s, it’s definitely tough for me to get my brain in autumn mode, but I know there are some fall brides out there seeking inspiration! Plus, it’s September – time for some rich color palettes and rustic elements. Make an oft-used palette like green and brown, new. Instead of green apple and chocolate, use shades of olive and deep caramel. Pull in unusual elements like dramatic pheasant and guinea feathers to create a beautiful twist on a classic look. And of course, don’t forget miniature apples and pears to round out the autumn event.

Mood: rustic early fall
Palette: olive green, warm cream, deep caramel brown

    Beautiful! This is almost my theme, exactly – I used the table setting from Country Home, too!

  • KarenB says:

    So, very beautiful. The last photo in your collage is from Country Living originally I believe. I pulled out old Fall issues and saw that last night, actually. I think anyway. It's such a beautiful setting. I LOVE the Emmerson made flowers. Thanks for showing us all the pretty links.

    Seriously, this could have been the inspiration board for my wedding that's happening this October. I'm using olive green, creamy ivory lace & black details. Fantastic pairings!

    Kathryn, I LOVE it! These are my colors and go well with my woodsy theme only I have added sky blue to them as a pop of color for an accent. Beautiful.
