AUTUMNAL NEUTRALS

The BBQ weather may be gone (sob!), but there’s still plenty of fun to be had entertaining this month. The cool September days call for lovely, long Sunday lunches and weekend dinner parties, so I’ve put together a little something to inspire your Autumnal get-togethers.

While it’s ‘just’ a dinner party, there’s no reason why you can’t go a little mad with the decor!  If relaxed and elegant is your style, then you’ll adore this sophisticated neutral palette.  Perfect for this season, shades of taupe, apricot and mint hint at the richer colours still to come but keep it light and fresh with touches of brass and gold to keep the whole look luxe & lovely.

Pale linens and white crockery always look crisp, while elegant glassware adds a touch of glamour with a gold rim.  Have fun with handwritten place cards, and send your guests home with a homely baked treat as a thanks for coming!

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
