Autumn Inspiration

Now that we are into October (and finally experiencing some cooler temperatures!), its getting easier to justify those Pumpkin Spice lattes and fabulous boots we’ve all been dying to pull out of our closets! Here at As you wish…, we love all of the deep, rich colors that this season has to offer and wait all year for just the right time to use them!

To keep YOU excited about everything cool and crisp, we put together this Inspiration Board based on an antique orange, peach, and muted red color palette, and peppered it with pops of deep fig. While we can appreciate the traditional reds and oranges of the changing leaves, we wanted to create something a little less expected and a little more elegant!

Whether you’re envisioning your own fall-inspired wedding, or just love this time of year, this combination is sure to make you feel warm and cozy!


Once you have the perfect overall vision for your day, it’s time to think about adding in some fun elements that offer a high level of sophistication, all while keeping in line with the fall-time feeling you’re aiming for!

For your escort card display, consider using branches and leaves spray-painted entirely gold for an added glam factor.


To sweeten up your cocktail hour, request mini candied apples as one of your passed hors d’oeuvres–your guests will be “ooing” and “ahhing” over how adorable these little bite-sized beauties are!


And finally, end the evening with one final homage to the season by handing out tiny pie favors–think pumpkin, apple, and even pecan pies all wrapped up in sweet little boxes.


Happy Fall!
