red poppies

With today being Veteran’s Day and with so many weddings during this time of year and especially over a long weekend, including red poppies in your decor as a form of remembrance for fallen family members is a thoughtful way to pay tribute to them.

Red Poppy Wedding Inspiration |

This red poppy wedding inspiration board has a sense of romance with its gorgeous autumnal details while incorporating patriotic colors. The teal napkins on the place settings are a nice option for a blue and the crisp white table runner is the perfect backdrop for such a colorful wedding palette.
