Gold, Cream, and Pumpkins | The Newport Bride

Gold, Cream, and Pumpkins

We’re all about fall. Sweater weather, PSL in hand, and of course, pumpkins everywhere. While the bright foliage of fall is gorgeous to look at, it might not be your choice when it comes to wedding colors. But neutrals go with everything so turn that bright pumpkin down a few shades and you’re good to go! We love when couples take their seasonal favorites and change the color, especially when they make them gold! In honor of fall, here’s a few of our favorite ways to use gold and cream in your pumpkin wedding decor.

Love how this centerpiece combined the pumpkins and antler candle sticks. Gives a real earth natural feel!

These pumpkins are festive and bridal!  Love the Mr. and Mrs.

Gold, Cream, and Pumpkins | The Newport Bride

 LOVE how this painted pumpkin is used as the vase for this centerpiece. It’s fancy and still natural feeling!


This gold painted pumpkin place card is perfect! Try it in cream or silver for a similar impact.

These white pumpkins even have a bit of sparkle! Plus, coupled with the gold leaves and pinecones, it makes a beautiful textured centerpiece.


This centerpiece has just a bit of gold and gourd. Enough to make it fall, but little enough that it’s still mostly floral. Perfectly in the middle.

Sometimes the best centerpieces aren’t on the tables at all, they’re hanging from the ceiling and they’re gold! These gold leaves are dramatic and stunning!!! Plus, they would make a great backdrop for pictures.

Gold, Cream, and Pumpkins | The Newport Bride

These gold and cream pumpkins make a beautiful set up. They’re ready to sit on the escort card table, decorate the bar, or maybe the present table.


This centerpiece reminds us of the first image, but has the addition of one of our favorite florals, hydrangea! The perfect white on white fall meets New England centerpiece.

This pumpkin is both a centerpiece and a table number!
