I volunteered myself to help with the decorations and to provide a sweet treat or two for the occassion. Deciding on a theme is tricky; do we pay homage to Fall with bold jewel tones and warm hues or keep it sugary sweet with confectionary pink? How about a little bit of both?
I'm inspired by this image below from Elle Decor that was posted on Apartment Therapy's website last week. Here the design embraces Fall browns, pinks, and oranges with plenty mirror and crystal accents (check out the ultra-femme chandelier). The chocolate brown could easily be incorporated through the tablecloths and placements or maybe even the base for handmade napkin rings. The pink and orange would come into play with the decorations for the candleholders and a really cool paper craft I saw in the Winter 2010 Do It Yourself magazine. The touches of crystal and mirror accents can be brought into the design with the numerous votive cups, vases, and candlesticks I have on hand.
I'll leave you with a few more images I snagged from the internet for inspiration.
