We love plaid because it comes in so many colors and sizes and if done right can be oh so chic! Another one of our favorite fall patterns is houndstooth. Although it is classic and has been around for quite some time, it seems to be making a big comeback this fall. It is everywhere - and for good reason! It is simple yet bold, classic yet modern and equally appropriate on both men and women. These two prints are the perfect addition to your holiday entertaining designs. You can incorporate them in a big way or subtly - whatever suits your fancy. Below are a few of our favorite ways to use plaid and houndstooth in both decor and at events.
We love these place settings. The top setting's houndstooth napkin is the perfect touch and looks fantastic agains the tribal linen. The lower setting's plaid placemat is holiday festive but in an understated elegant way. We love it!
We love the simplicity of the blue plaid napkin tied with an orange bow on the place setting. Blue gingham is featured in the photo on the right. Gingham is plaids adorable cousin. Although typically more appropriate during spring and summer months. We do however, feel the blue gingham paired with the orange cocktail makes for a very "fall" appropriate combination.
Oh houndstooth. Isn't it lovely?! The bow tie shown below is perfection and the favor bags couldn't be cuter.
These invitations are so striking and unexpected. Whether used for a wedding, holiday party or any other celebration, we'd love to get something like this in the mail!
