Thanksgiving Tablescapes

It’s officially one week until Thanksgiving, and if you aren’t yet sure how you want to decorate your dinner table, we have you covered! These tablescapes would be perfect for fall weddings, as well, and a few of them are from some gorgeous fall weddings at The Barn. The best part: many of these items are probably things you already have, or they're things you could snag on a quick trip to Hobby Lobby! None of these would take very much time or effort to put together, so even though you've only got a few days left before the big day, you've still got plenty of time to pull them off! Here are some Thanksgiving tablescapes that are (almost) as yummy as your Turkey Day dinner!

Wedding Inspiration: Wedding in the Woods

Forest weddings aren't a new trend, but can they please stay around forever?! You can turn your own wedding into an enchanted forest with a neutral color palette (shades of green, ivory, browns, gold), lush greenery, pale colored florals (the messier, the better!), and natural details, like wood and moss. Weddings in the woods (or ones that bring the woods to the wedding!) are always the dreamiest, especially when they include magical lighting and major fairy tale vibes! Here are just a few forest-inspired weddings that I ADORE.

Wedding Inspiration: Halloween!

Happy (almost) Halloween! I know, I know, the thought of a Halloween themed wedding conjures up all kinds of fright! It's just straight up scary! But a few Halloween inspired details can be totally chic... Think elegant dark-colored details (a black bridal gown would be perfect for a Halloween wedding!), pumpkins filled with flowers, low lighting with tons of lit candles, and maybe a Halloween themed favor, cocktail or candy buffet! Here are a few wedding details (and one fun Halloween themed playlist) that are subtly spooky... No ghosts, goblins, or vampires, I promise! Y'all have a great Halloween... I hope you get lots of candy, whatever your plans are!

Wedding Inspiration: Book Themed Weddings

Every storybook romance needs… a wedding with book themed details?! We say yes! There are few things we love more than when a couple’s wedding details tell a part of their story… And it’s even better when those details are gorgeous and work flawlessly into their wedding decor! For our bookworm brides and grooms, using old books throughout your decor is the perfect way to give a nod to your love of reading (or to your fairy tale, storybook love story, of course). They add a vintage, romantic vibe and there are few things prettier than a stack of old books topped with flowers or greenery. Your options for incorporating books into your wedding decor are just about limitless… you can use stacks of books, book pages, or open books throughout your altar, reception tables, guestbook table, backdrops and pretty much anywhere else! We also love book-inspired favors, like cute personalized bookmarks. Here are our very favorite ways to use books in your wedding!

Wedding Inspiration: Fall Florals

Our fall season is officially underway, and I can't wait to begin sharing our magical fall weddings with you! Before I get to start sharing our fall 2018 weddings with you, let’s take a look back at some of my favorite fall florals  

Fall florals are kind of the best. They're full of the most delicious, rich colors (marsala and burnt orange and bright yellow and navy and purple and gold!). Rich colors sure look pretty paired with pastels, like blush, so if pale colors are a must-have for you, don't be afraid of mixing them in! The best fall bouquets also have lots of gorgeous texture. Scabiosa pods, fall leaves, curly willow, eucalyptus, thistle, wheat... All those look great with fall flowers! You can also add a bit of texture in the form of a great bouquet wrap (think vintage lace, twine, chambray or burlap). Fall bouquets look great when they're rustic and a little messy and undone looking. Here are some gorgeous fall florals from past Barn Weddings! I cannot even wait to share with you what our team creates for the fall 2018 season! <3
