Color block trending in wedding decor

Multiple jewel tones in one piece of clothing, accessory or footwear seen on fashion runways in recent weeks is a strong predictor of a red hot trend for fall and spring. A perfect example is a pair of stunning suede B Brian Atwood pumps pictured here, available from You can’t take your eyes off the fuchsia, royal blue, aqua and yellow suede that make these shoes so special.

You can easily incorporate the color block trend into your wedding and many brides have already done so. Bridesmaids dressed in jewel tones or a combination of vivid solid colors in a single dress have started showing up in the finer bridal salons and in the wedding party iteself. Imagine those new dresses paired with the color block pumps. The look would be spot on.

Now take that concept and apply it to your wedding reception with jewel tone linens in bold color blocks. A favorite is the Plum Mosaic overlay available from BBJ Linen, represented locally in Houston by Linen Queen Design Works. Paired with full tablecloths in rich shantung of wisteria, cornflower and terracotta the mosaic overlays effortlessly create the color block look. Incorporate the look into the guest chairs with the plum mosaic chair tie. Be sure to clue in your florist so the centerpieces stay true to your color scheme.
