Aqua & Red Holiday Party

Words just cannot describe how in love I am with this aqua + red holiday tablescape submitted by Marla Hudnall of Fujuko’s Flowers. The pops of red, the fanned napkins, and the refreshing aqua make this one of my new favorite features for unique holiday color combinations.

Happy Harvest Table from Piggy Bank Parties!

“The air is crisp. The autumn breeze is blowing. The ever changing leaves are slowly floating to the ground. The harvest season has arrived and my favorite time of year inspired the Happy Harvest Table. I designed the “Happy Harvest” and “Autumn” banners for our church last year and they turned out so well that I wanted to expand on the theme.” – Do, Piggy Bank Parties
