inspiration board #27: autumn leaves
Good Morning! How was your weekend? Any wedding related loveliness going on?
I’m feeling back to my old self after being quite poorly last week, and I spent yesterday afternoon in the company of some amazing TWIPS friends who amaze me with their passion and energy, and make me feel so inspired!
Isn’t it lovely to see the sun shining again this morning? There’s still that telltale chill in the air that tells me it’s most definitely Autumn now. The kids are back at school, the leaves are falling from the trees and there’s even conkers on the ground, so it’s time to embrace the change in seasons! What I love most about Autumn is the richness of colour, those deep oranges, golds and browns that give such a feeling of warmth. Today’s inspiration board captures that warmth in one neat little package, inspired by this beautiful cake creation of Janet Mohapi-Banks, with fiery autumn leaves tumbling leaves tumbling down its sides. Autumn for me is all about harvest, an abundance of food and colour, and a wedding at this time of year should capture that essence with beautiful jewel tones, and the introduction of berries, leaves and seed pods into the bouquets and arrangements to give that sense of richness. Gold accents add a touch of opulence and elegance.
