We assume that’s why brides often choose to get married in autumn—sparkling blue skies, cool crisp air, the breathtaking spectrum of Mother Nature’s palette as leaves change from green to gorgeous shades of gold, red, yellow, orange, burgundy and rich browns.
Any of these colors can create a wedding palette that pops—particularly for bridesmaids’ dresses and wedding reception décor! Let’s chatter about the latter, because we’ve got some super ideas for coordinating reception table centerpieces with unique fall wedding favors, but only if you want your guests to be completely blown away by your artistic eye and supreme sense of style. Let’s start with a favor and take it from there…
The “Lustrous Leaf” Copper-Finish Bottle Stopper is a fall favorite, and you can easily see why! It’s not just the stunning bottle stopper but the gift packaging, too, that makes it a fabulous find at every guest’s seat. Notice how the four centerpiece ideas complement the coppery look of the favor. Hmmm. Copper and chocolate brown—what a knock-out combination for a fall wedding!
Do you prefer brighter colors? How about a bit of red? The apple-red “Autumn Elegance” Favor Box with a laser-cut maple leaf holds candy or mints, not to mention your guests’ attention. Place one on each plate or next to the place setting, and create a centerpiece that captures the ruby luster of a Red Delicious apple. Check out these four to get your creative juices flowing!
As long as we’re talking about distinctly fall fruit, let’s move on to “The Perfect Pair” Ceramic Pear Salt & Pepper Shaker. The top of the pear shakes out salt, and the bottom dispenses pepper. This is a cute, practical favor you can just see on a kitchen table dressed up for fall with a beautiful centerpiece. The four centerpieces here would look exquisitely autumnal on any table!
From fruit to photos we go, featuring the picture-perfect “Fall Impressions” Glass Photo Coasters in deep burgundy with white leaves—another smashing color combo! Photo coasters just may be the most practical and versatile fall wedding favors out there. You get two in a set, and at the reception, you can use them as-is with the “For You” insert, or you can slide in a place cards or a favorite photo of, well, you know! Put them around a color-complementary centerpiece, and be ready with a camera to capture all those admiring looks!
Have an Amazing Autumn, and Happy Planning!
