Filled with creamy candles and surrounded by winter greens, lanterns add warmth and charm to winter wedding reception tables. Choose a lantern color that complements your table linens and other table decor.

Baby Shower Theme Idea: To The Moon & Back

The "To the Moon and Back" baby shower theme has all of the charm of a nursery rhyme. It's also gender-neutral so expectant mommies of baby girls and baby boys will enjoy it. A color palette of baby blue and cheery yellow with adorable moon and star shapes add a sweet touch to decorations and favors.

Pantone's Color of the Day: Muskmelon

Pantone's peach-y Muskmelon is an absolute dream incorporated into this hunter green-tinged wedding collection.  I generally associate peach tones with spring and summer weddings but the addition of hunter green makes it appropriate for fall weddings as well.
