Blush and Gold Challenge, phase 2

Continuing on with my color challenge obsession with blush and gold, I did some web trolling to find some inspiration and products that would turn these colors into a beautifully styled event. My goal is to use these colors in a more modern and edgy way, combining textures and graphic shapes to give it a less frilly persona but still hold on to it's very beautiful and feminine nature.

Here is what I found: I absolutely love this Vintage German Gold Dresden paper trim from Gathering Splendor and already purchased it, and the autumn mums in this arrangement from It's Pretty Light were what I had in mind for a floral arrangement. I was also thinking that berries would be a nice graphic element, or richly colored burgundy leaves still on branches. I also love the idea of the wheat stacks to add some architecture to the table and I would bring a touch of the pink in the stack with that pink and gold braided trim on the bottom right corner from Onlyee. Of course coffee flavored caramels from Fusion Sweets bring in a touch of golden brown, gold cupcake liners from Cupcake Social with blush pink frosting on the cupcakes, the cameo ring from Tamar and the fabric from Fabric Worm show the delicacy of the colorscheme and include graphic element I was hoping for. The table runner from Dining Out is a good idea too. I thought that even some butcher paper on a table with loose gold swashes painted on it would be fun and very inexpensive. The wheels are turning for the invitation and paper accessories that would complete the look. More on that later...

If you didn't catch it, here is where the obsession started when I did a color palette for this beautiful photograph last week:
