Autumn Inspiration Board Challenge

As I walked outside this morning I noticed something different... there was something in the air. No, it wasn't love... it was Autumn. Here in sunny Florida, you do not hear the word Autumn very much. As a matter of fact, only the northerners (such as myself) tend to say Autumn.

I personally miss Autumn. I miss the crisp, clean, chilled air. I miss Mother Nature's painted canvas of leaves changing colors. Oh the beauty of Autumn. Well stepping out into the Autumn air this morning, a monogram design instantly came to me.

I don't want the beauty of Autumn to stop there... so I am challenging YOU to design an Autumn inspired inspiration board (try saying that 3 times fast).

Leave a comment below with a link to your inspiration board & I will post it to my blog for all to see your awesome Autumn artwork.

Brenda's Wedding Blog created this beautiful Autumn board that brings the beautiful burnt orange & brown from the Autumn season.

The boutonniere is my personal favorite from this collection. Although Brenda did not know this when creating this board, I used the same photo as an inspiration for my own board I put together. Smart minds think alike.

Events by Heather Ham put this amazing board together. She highlighted all of the wonderful colors associated with Autumn... including my favorite color, PURPLE.

The candy apple is a fun idea to use as a favor for Autumn weddings & the lanterns really help to set the mood.

CNI Designs, created two great Autumn inspiration boards. The first highlights crimson & mustard colors which are classics to the Autumn season. This one makes a perfect match for the monogram I designed above.

The second designed by CNI Designs pulls out more of the orange from the season's colors. I just love the monogramed pumkin & tree stump candle holders.


  1. What perfect timing, I actually posted an autumn inspiration board today that would go perfectly with the monogram you've showcased above. Here's the link: http://www.brendasweddingblog.com/blogs/2009/10/1/burnt-orange-brown-autumn-wedding-inspiration-board.html
