My incredibly talented friend Morgan made these gorgeous menu and place cards for a tablescape I worked on recently. Bringing nature indoors is a great way to entertain in the Fall. A little moss and some acorn hats embellish a standard menu card and place card. Gorgeous! Thanks, Morgan!

I am always looking for non-floral decor alternatives for weddings and other events. My husband and I went on a hike today in Great Falls and everywhere I turned I found inspiration for Fall decor! My mind is now spinning with ideas for incorporating natural elements — like pinecones, greenery, branches, and acorns — into designs.
In fact, I worked on an event recently where a team of us collaborated on nature-inspired centerpieces — we filled clear vessels with pears and apples and used acorns and pinecones as filler. I can’t take credit for the design, but it looked great!
Below are a few images that are inspiring me to go out and collect all of the pinecones I can find — then I’ll be prepared for Fall decorating next year, too!
I adore these chairs spotted on the SCOOP from a nature-inspired wedding. They are perfect for an outdoor wedding and are such a departure from the typical wood folding chairs we see so often. Gorgeous!
When I first met with Missy and Brian and learned of their vision for their wedding, I was instantly hooked. Featuring elegant tones of warm browns, natural greens, and ivory — all very earth-inspired tones — and set in the beautiful grounds of Woodend Sanctuary, the design ultimately reflected a classical, formal elegance without being “stuffy.”
The wedding began with a beautiful ceremony under a birch chuppah, the perfect complement to the tree-lined Grove in which the ceremony took place.
Guests moved from the Grove to the Lawn to enjoy cocktail hour. Passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails were served by Occasions Caterers‘ impeccable staff.
Dinner took place on the tented terrace, from which guests could admire the nearby woodlands. Gorgeous flowers for the wedding were provided by Growing Wild and were in keeping with the nature-inspired color scheme.
The wedding cake was adorned with brown satin ribbon, a white sugar flower, and a whimsical topper providing a nod to the wedding venue: The Audubon Naturalist Society.
Music and dancing were important elements to Missy and Brian. They chose a 1940s-style band with a very vintage look. Talented and versatile, Raggs and the All-Stars played a variety of music throughout the evening.
Congratulations, Missy and Brian!
