Wedding Wednesday: Pink, Brown, Orange and Yellow Engagement Dinner

Welcome again to Wedding Wednesday where Rebecca of Tastefully Entertaining and I each select an invitation from our site, FineStationery.com, and create separate inspiration boards based on the item. Today's Wedding Wednesday features a cheerful Vera Wang party invitation. One thing I liked about this invitation is the motif options. The original image on the site shows a slice of cake, but I wanted to use the invitation for an engagement dinner and went with a ring motif. Rebecca opted for a different motif but you'll have to check her page to see what she went with!

I really loved the combination of pink, brown, yellow and orange in the liner and wanted to carry that theme through the engagement dinner. What I liked most about the color theme is that it is perfect for a summer or fall wedding. The pink really perks up the traditional autumnal colors of yellow, brown and orange.

Rebecca did a fabulous job as usual. Where I went for the colors, Rebecca chose to mirror the polka dot pattern in her engagement party theme. Be sure to check it out!
