Color Inspirations – Autumn Gold

Add a touch of elegance to your seasonal embroidery designs with this Autumn Gold color scheme.

We’ve spent some time in past Color Inspirations showing you how you can turn a regular design into something spooky for the season with color, but what about the other way around? This week, take something ghoulish and make it glam with this Autumn Gold color scheme. Ditch the usual dark tones of the season and go subtle and chic with metallics and warm tones on a simple off-white background. It’s a classy way to make seasonal designs suit a more elegant theme, like an autumn wedding! See how it compares to the original.

Embroidered Sweets Banner, from Quick Pics - The best and brightest ideas from Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr and instagram and more.

When Julianne got married recently she used her mad crafty skills to make all kinds of things for her wedding. Her daughter wore a headband made with lace, she used the Mr & Mrs bunting for the top table, stitched lots of lace lanterns, and finally, made this super cute bunting  for the sweet table using the Cirque Alphabet. She said she accidentally bought the wrong size W, but I thought it was super cute and totally intentional. What a crafty wedding!
