It is the time of year when colours are most vibrant: orange pumpkins, red and yellow leaves with hints of dark brown. If you look carefully, however, you can also see some more muted tones of pumpkin blush and rose gold. Those are the colours that we are using for October’s Color Challenge – Pumpkin Blush!
We were very lucky to celebrate a wedding this week (it was ours, but that is a long story!) When I thought about decorations for this time of year, I really didn’t want the bright vibrant orange,but rather went with white and gold pumpkins, rose gold balloons and jute or burlap fabric. I think it all turned out just beautifully! My girlfriends created a spectacular balloon wall that really was the statement piece of the decorations!
Here is my page to start off the challenge! Hope you’ll feel inspired to jump in with these soft and warm fall colours!
