Fall Themed Wedding: All About Pumpkins!

Fall is here and it happens to be my favorite time of the year.  I often associate apple picking with fall because it is such a fun and seasonal activity.  However, I must admit that I am more of a pumpkin patch kind of girl.  I love hayrides to the patch, picking out my very own pumpkin, and using it for carving , baking, or weddings!  That’s right, pumpkins not only make for great decorations, but great cocktails and food for weddings.  Here are 12 of my favorite ways to incorporate pumpkins into the big day 🙂

When Life Gives you Lemons

When life give you lemons – use them as decor! I love the use of lemons or fruit in general in decor. It is such a fantastic way to bring bright pops of color and something interesting into your space. And they can be used in so many ways, as escort cards, in flower arrangements, in drinks of course, as centerpieces. The options are unlimited if you use your imagination!
