I think it will be beautiful. Is there any way that you could get frames that are two sided so the pictures could be viewed by everyone at the table without having to pick up and move the frame?

I love it all! I especially love your choice of the color chocolate in your theme, it will be so rich and lovely with your other colors! Our colors are aubergine and orange/gold. Gold pavilion room, aubergine table cloths and ivory napkins.

I can imagine your centerpieces and think they will be so elegant and warm! Perhaps you could spray paint the cake stands themselves a color(s) of your wedding? Or do you want to keep them as-is for that rustic flair?

Thanks for the coffee bean tip — my Fiance was a trained coffee master and I think that would be a nice touch for our wedding, come to think of it.

For our centerpieces, we are carving synthetic pumpkins, poking holes in them in pretty patterns that also spell out the table name, and tucking fake tealight candles inside. In the center of each pumpkin will be a small vase of flowers. There will be tall candelabras, too to give some height and touch upon our Renaissance theme, and real pumpkins of various sizes and shapes mixed in between.

We are honoring couples in the family similarly. Such a sweet thing to do.

For our favors, we’re giving jars of local orange blossom honey (since our engagement, we have an orange blossom theme going.)

Have a great time planning the rest!

Pumpkins can make pretty vases for flowers too. Might be nice to have a small one on the top tier with fall flowers in your colors and dried fall leaves still on branches. Using oasis floral foam insdie to hold the stem and provide moisture works well.

That sounds gorgeous. I plan on using a lot of pumpkins and other fall items in my decor as well. Some of my ideas are: jack-b-little pumpkins as table numbers – I’ll simply cut a slit in the stem and put a piece of purple cardstock in with the table number on it (my colors are dark purple and orange), a larger pumpkin carved with our monogram to decorate the gift or cake table, a wish tree instead of a guestbook with maple leaf shaped tags, pumpkins lining our ceremony aisle, and pumpkins and curly willow branches for our centerpieces. This is my mock-up (needs a little tweaking):
