Back to School: Pastels Plus Red Color Inspiration

Posted by

It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, not time to trim the tree or deck the halls....it's back to school! Really, is there anything more glorious than the smell of autumn leaves and freshly sharpened Ticonderoga #2 pencils? Bring out your inner child with this playful palette of soft pastels (blue, yellow, and green) packed with a punch of apple red.

Stacked books add interest to your reception decor, as do vintage crayon tins turned into flower vases. Apples adorned with table numbers make a fun and tasty alternative to a traditional seating chart, while chalkboard signs direct your guests to the action. For an A+ ensemble, mix a crisp button down shirt with an A-line skirt and heels—but remember to bring your saddle shoes for late night dancing!

For more ideas, see how this couple turned their California wedding into a school-themed soiree!
