Complement these textures by decorating your tables with baskets of seasonal fruit — they’ll add a seasonal pop of color while doubling as a healthy nibble for your hungry guests!
Invitations for an August wedding will be sent out at the start of summer, so feel free to play up the summer vibes in your entire stationery suite.
