    Everything in this slideshow

    • Embellish a Setting

      Adorn a large gate with bands of roses to create a beautiful backdrop for the bride and groom. Add more color with an orange silk runner and copper troughs filled with miniature and standard cymbidium orchids.

    • Use Fruit as an Accessory

      Add lemons, limes, and oranges to clear vases for an extra pop of color to an arrangement. Cut the fruit in slices or wedges, or leave it whole. Top off this cheerful arrangement with a mix of roses, gerbera daisies, chrysanthemums, and tulips.

    • Dress Up Your Bouquet

      Add a rhinestone butterfly to a golden yellow and peach rose bouquet. Bold bouquet jewels, like this butterfly, or subtle accents, like petite pearls, are simple ways to dress up an arrangement.

    • Boost a Boutonniere

      Amplify the color of the boutonniere with a wrap in a rich color. Use a wrap of orange ribbon and copper wire to highlight the orange tones in the flowers. Combine an orchid -- a classic boutonniere flower -- with a rose to make a colorful statement.

    • Make a Poppy Arrangement

      Gather orange, yellow, and red poppy stems tightly in a tall slender vase, allowing the blooms to burst above. While poppies cannot handle the rigors of a bridal bouquet, they will make a stunning arrangement at your reception.

    • Spice Up Your Place Settings

      Add a personal touch to your place settings by slipping a menu card into an orange napkin. Menu cards aren't necessary but are a simple way to add more color to the place settings.

    • Inspired Autumn Bouquet

      Generous blossoms of orange and yellow dahlias and fresh green gladiolus make a bouquet cheerfully bright. The grouping is balanced with the deeper tones in orange montbretia, cockscomb, clover, and copper echinacea. Top off this seasonal bouquet with a plaid ribbon in your color scheme.

    • Drink Up a Signature Cocktail

      Incorporate your color scheme into your cocktail hour with a signature drink. Sugar-coat the glass rims to complement the taste of pomegranate martinis, or try versions flavored with orange and apple juice.

    • Do-It-Yourself Accessory

      Japanese lanterns are a great way to add color without much cost. Buy plain lanterns in bulk and then paint them according to your color scheme.
