Modern Thanksgiving Marriage Proposal Inspiration

Our love affair with velvet isn't ending anytime soon and neither is our obsession for the beginning of happily ever afters! In this second part from our recent DIY tutorial for a gorgeous velvet marriage proposal banner made in partnership with our pals at Cricut, we have envisioned a Thanksgiving-inspired surprise proposal dinner complete with best friends and smiles for days!

With velvet hexagon chargers, sparkly copper candlesticks, jewel-toned velvet table runners, and geometric table decor, this creative team made a modern love story a reality in the palette of emerald green, navy blue, blush pink, and burgundy red. Captured by Dani White Photography, textured florals of coxcomb, roses, dahlias, and eucalyptus by Palette of Petals anchor an intimate tablescape for four while geometric place settings styled by Mad Hatter Vintage play off of unique party plateware that you'd never guess were paper! A yummy contemporary Thanksgiving menu consisted of cranberry champagne cocktails, pumpkin soup topped with crème fraîche and pomegranate seeds, copper-dusted fruit tarts, and other fall-inspired culinary delights from Chef by Design and Kadi Bakes.

In shades of blush and blue, our sweeties-to-be and besties dressed for the occasion in chic style with velvet matte burgundy lip color and braided hair details by Markia Nicole Hair and Makeup Artistry. We basically can't get enough of this inspiration! Someone go propose ASAP!
