Here we go again: Inspiration

You’ve just had the most amazing wedding and reception.  Every detail fell into place beautifully.  You’re basking in the glow of newlywed-ness and then you realize that you have a second party to plan.  CRAP!

Mr P and I quickly realized that we weren’t going to re-purpose our  brightly colored summer wedding style for our November party in Indiana.  We did however want to re-purpose some of the elements.  The first place we could start is with our colors.   Pink,  green, and aqua blue didn’t scream fall to us.  But we could certainly work with orange. A quick search gave me lots of rustic orange wedding inspiration.




This whetted my appetite for rustic fall party. I consulted one of my favorite color websites, to look for a color scheme.


Using the accented analogic feature I set the the primary color to orange and *BAM* we had a color scheme. Not too shabby, we are able to reuse 2 of our 5 wedding colors!  I guess technically Kraft was our “other wedding color” so its more like 3 of our 5 colors are recycled

Mr P loves the color scheme and I’m excited too.  We’re not stopping with reusing wedding colors, much of our decor are second (or third) use items.  We have milkglass vases that already made appearances at our wedding and at Mrs Hot Dog’s wedding, Canning jars from our rehearsal dinner,  Burlap runners purchased from Mrs Bear Cub, and wood slices purchased right off of the Weddingbee Classifieds.  I think it is safe to say our vision is starting to come together.
