More Acorns & Some Autumn Wedding Ideas

From what I've heard over the past few days, a lot of people like acorns. Remember when I mentioned that nine years ago my wedding favors were acorn shaped chocolates? Well, I pulled out the ole wedding photos so I could show you.

The entire week before the wedding my husband and I worked our butts off on these every night after work. I'm not sure I would ever want to do it again, but they were well worth it. They were milk chocolate with a peanut butter cap. My mother still has one of these little tins with the original chocolates in it. They look as good today as they did nine years ago... Gross.

While I've got the wedding photos out, I might as well show you a couple of other autumn-ish wedding items. These are the place cards I made. I just printed out the names/table numbers, cut them out, and used a glue gun to attach them to mini grapevine wreaths. It was really simple, but they turned out really nice.

This is our cake. A friend of the family made it. I gave her a few pictures of what I liked, and she just went with it. I really had no idea how it would look until the day of the wedding, and I really liked it.

I got married in June, by the way. Not even close to fall, but autumn is my favorite season, so I went with it. Plus, I got married in Vermont, famous for its fall foliage. Actually, my wedding day felt like fall. It was so cold that we got married in front of a burning fireplace. I certainly didn't see that coming when I was planning a June wedding.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you haven't already, don't forget to enter my appreciation giveaway. The giveaway ends this Saturday, September 4, 2010 at 11:59 PM (EST).

Now I want a Reeses :-) So cute! Our wedding was in October and I wish I had thought of cute stuff like these. I'll chalk it up to being 20 and not having a clue :-P

I love all your fall touches, fall is also my favorite season but I had to get married in August because of being out of state and the school calendar. I should've been like you and gotten my fall thing on anyway. I love that cake and how you carried the theme out so well throughout the celebration.
