Gold Is In! | Trendy Tuesday


We here at Culinary Crafts are gearing up for this upcoming wedding season and let me tell you, GOLD IS IN!  We are seeing many of our brides move away from stainless steel, platinum, and silver and moving to gold - but not necessarily bright polished golds that may instantly come to mind.  Burnished golds, aged golds, and rose golds are definitely the stars of this trend. I love the versatility and warmth of this metal!  From elegant rustic, bright modern styles, romantic vintage, and high fashion drama - gold can enhance it all!  Take a look! Love this rustic, elegant board mixing the pops of burnished gold with natural touches of ivory and wood.  It adds an air of glamour to even the most rustic decor and is visually captivating admist the neutral palette - it elevates the table from pretty to show-stopper for sure! Gold is a fun an unexpected element in these bold color palettes!  I love the added whimsy and polish it lends to even the most adventurous details!  (The gold horse as a plate ornament is simply amazing, I must say!) This vintage, romantic style brings in gold tones through florals and sets them off with chandeliers, the ribbon sash on a wedding dress, and the STUNNING yellow sapphire.  This adds warmth and depth to the sometimes subdued vintage palettes. Finally, this dramatic board takes the gold to a rich and gorgeous level.  Setting off the jewel toned palettes and amping up the drama of such deep colors is not for the faint of heart!  The result, however, is a sumptuous and breathtaking opulence that really sets the tone for a one-of-a-kind event! I love this trend and the many ways to incorporate it into any event!  Gold is a metal that simply stands out and cannot be ignored - which is definitely a good thing!  I hope this inspires you to think of the many possibilities gold could lend to your wedding day - whether it be a ring unlike any other or a show-stopping decor!  Happy planning everyone!
