We’re madly in love with Fall at Stan Mansion! From the gorgeous textured gowns to the rich colors of the season, not to mention cozying up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate (or hot toddy) on a chilly night.
Here in Chicago, magical things happen during the fall. Things start to cool down and move a little slower. The sun goes down earlier, creating orangey-pink sunsets that cast beautiful spotlights on the fall leaves. Those yellows, reds and deep purples on the trees are awe inspiring. This makes getting married or holding a special event, in the fall just, magnificent.
Earlier this year, Pantone released the perfect colors for any fall event. A lovely burnt red-orange, a vivacious pink, deep brick red, wispy airy blue and rich emerald green, amongst other savory hues. Paired together, these colors can create dynamic event décor duos.
Here are a few of our favorites:
Riverside & Dusty Cedar, Bodacious Pink & Warm Taupe, Sharksin & Spicy Mustard
These cozy days of fall bring out the comfort creatures in all of us. And, we love the trend of comfort food as late night wedding snack. From tomato soup shooters with a miniature grilled cheese to kobe beef burger sliders, this addition to the traditional wedding dinner is a crowd pleaser. Especially after an open bar!
And, it doesn’t have to stop there! Fall screams bon fires here in the Midwest, and what goes better with that than s’mores? We love the idea of a s’mores bar for any event. It’s a perfect way to keep kids, and adults, entertained!
High-end or low key, desert bars are always a hit. More fall treats we suggest include: hot cocoa, apple cider donuts, taffy apples, hot apple cider, red velvet cupcakes for a splash of color, mini apple pies or pecan pies. Of course, feel free to add your favorite treat too!
From cozy nights to colorful days, fall is, in our opinion, the best season in Chicagoland. From the amazing colors to the delicious comfort foods, there is no wonder why many people want to celebrate their big events during this time.
Stay tuned for more of our favorite fall 2016 wedding and special event trends! And, as always, get inspired!
