Nectarine and Thyme Jam Cocktail

I tend to think of myself as more of a summer cocktail gal, opting for light and fresh flavours whenever possible, and tending towards creations that aren’t too sweet and ideally include a note of floral or a hint of the bubbly. But when the temperatures drop, my palate shifts along with my craving for cozy fall sweaters, and I find myself drawn to new flavour combinations that mimic the changing fall colours and my desire for something a little on the spicier side.

So when I found myself in Kitten and the Bear a couple weeks ago with an array of delicious looking fall flavours in front of me, I decided that there was only one thing to do — challenge myself to craft a seasonal cocktail that would not only feel seasonally appropriate, but to tie in with our recent fall tablescape as our final detail, thus concluding this styling series.

Styling a Tablescape with Pink and Gold Details

It started with a folder of inspiration images on my desktop and a gravitation towards a fall-toned colour palette filled with dusty pink and golden details, and after taking it through my creative process and dissecting it a little bit, it started to take form as a tablescape design.

Exploring the Creative Process with a Fall Color Palette

Back in September, when I started to settle back into my normal routine a little, I found myself starting to collect inspiration images that felt distinctly fall-like — though with a Studio Bicyclette angle, of course. It didn’t take long before I found myself with a desktop folder full of saved images and a board dedicated to this new direction, and I started to notice some patterns in what I had found myself attracted to — rich textures, warm hues with a prevalence of brassy golds, deep yellows and dusty pinks, a hint of darkness, and some shadow play that resulted in a moodiness that felt appropriate with the seasonal shift.

With no real outcome in mind for this collection of inspiration images (usually I put together moodboards with a specific project or client in mind), I realized that I had the opportunity here to turn this into something “just for fun” — which brings us here.

Think Pink

All it takes is one quick scroll through my Instagram feed to realize that my love for the colour pink runs pretty deep. The truth is, it hasn't always been this way. I had the obligatory childhood obsession with the rosy hue, sure, but then there were many years where I doubt I owned a stitch of pink, opting instead for anything that supported my wannabe surfer girl status (#bluecrushforever).
