14 Reasons Why Peach Is Going to Dominate Weddings Next

While everyone was focusing on Pantone’s color of the year for their wedding decor, a new hue has snuck onto the scene… and it’s positively peachy. From colored glassware to tapered candles, the fruity shade is the sweetest color to take over your big day. It’s definitely got some saturation to it but isn’t too bold, making it the perfect base for what is an exceptional wedding color palette. Scroll on for 14 options that will leave you feeling peachy-keen (pun intended).

1. Tapered Candles: Other than peach having a moment, tapered candles are seriously trending too. So why not incorporate both into your wedding decor? Add vintage brass candlestick holders like these ones and you’ll have the makings of a chic tablescape. (via Andrea Patricia Photography / Elizabeth Anne Designs)

2. Peachy Roses: Flowers could be the perfect way to include your new favorite color. It’s a prominent place, though, so be sure you’re ready for peach to be a focal point of the day. (via D’amor Photography / Confetti Daydreams)

3. The Boutonnière: If you do opt to have peach in your flower arrangements, we think you should definitely carry it through to the boutonnières. Pair it with a khaki suit and get ready to #swoon over your soon-to-be spouse. (via Kristyn Hogan / Borrowed & Blue)

4. Peach Bellini: Everyone loves a good peach Bellini, so making it the signature cocktail at your reception just seems right. (via Amy Arrington Photography / Hey Wedding Lady)

5. Table Runner: If you decide to go with a more neutral palette for your flowers, but still want a place to bring out the peach, table decor is the way to go. This runner definitely brings this rustic vibe to life and acts as a much-needed splash of color! (via Allie Lindsey / Hey Wedding Lady)

6. Flower Hair Piece: The flower hair piece presents an incredible opportunity to add individual style and bring in some color. (via Grace & Blush / Flower Dress)

7. A PeachyCake: Whether the cake tastes like peach or just boasts the color, this is a beautiful option to help tie things together. If you’re a bride that hesitates with color, adding it to the cake is a safe bet. (via Belluxe Photography / Style Me Pretty)

8. Invitations: You can set the tone right away with your invitations. Pro tip: Stick to cooler colors throughout to complement the pink-ish hue. And don’t forget to include some totally on-point typography.(via Koman Photography / Style Me Pretty)

9. VW Microvan: It’s all in the details! You don’t necessarily have to track down something as big as a vehicle, but bringing your colors into the details (i.e., photo booths, favors, etc.) makes for a fun and consistent party theme.(via Jane Allen Photography / Style Me Pretty)

10. Colored Glassware: This setup is a dream! Use your linens and colored glassware to harmonize everything and create the ultimate tablescape while doing so. (via Edyta Szyszlo / 100 Layer Cake)

11. Fresh Peaches: Who says you just have to mimic the color peach?! Throwing in some real, juicy peaches as decor or as a snack for guests during cocktail hour will be a huge hit. (via Well, Hello Photography / Style Me Pretty)

12. A Peach Accented Bouquet: If you want peach as part of your ensemble, but don’t want it incorporated into your dress and accessories, your bouquet is a great option. Add some ranunculus, roses, and a little greenery, and you’ll be ready to walk down the aisle in style! (via Mi Belle Inc. / Grey Likes Weddings)

13. Centerpieces: One of the most obvious places to make a theme come to life is in your centerpieces! Keep them simple, true to your style, and *extra* peachy. (via Kristen Honeycutt Photo / Fab Your Bliss)

14. Unique Statement Piece: If you want to go outside the box and have a statement piece at your reception, this balloon arch setup is everything. (via Ashley Kelemen / Green Wedding Shoes)

I didn't watch Stranger Thingswhen it first premiered because I convinced myself I wouldn't like it. I have never been more wrong. The story — which revolves around a small town in Indiana, a group of outcasts, popular kids, and parents brought together by tragedy, and a monstrous alternate dimension — launched into the cultural zeitgeist in November of 2016. Television (and streaming services) have never been the same.

The characters within the show (Millie Bobby Brown's powerful Eleven, Joe Keery's goofy-yet-sincere Steve, David Harbour's protective Jim) are so complex and engaging that it makes Stranger Things one of the best TV shows of the 2010s and 2020s. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and after the cultural moment that was Stranger Things 4 (FYI, I'm still listening to Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill"), the hit series is coming to a close. Here's everything we know about Stranger Things 5.

What happens in Stranger Things 5?

In an interview with Happy Sad Confused's Josh Horowitz, David Harbour says that the Duffers always outdo themselves. “I’m excited to go back. I’m excited to wrap it up in a bold, amazing way," he continues. "I’m excited to really swing with this character, because you know they’re going to pay off these OG characters: Eleven, Hopper, Joyce, Will, Mike; they’re going to pay them off in big ways because they’ve lived with you for the past eight years.”

Even though David keeps his lips sealed when it comes to plot details, he does promise that the series' end is "very, very moving."

Other members of the ST team have also offered a glimpse at what we can expect. “Will really takes center stage again in [Stranger Things 5],” Ross Duffer tells Variety. The first season, which kicked off with Will (Noah Schnapp) being abducted, will wrap up where it started. Especially since the first Stranger Things 5 leak seems to show the season will take place during the holidays. Just like season one!

After years of speculation from fans, Noah confirmed that Will is gay in July of 2022 — a decision that impacted his own life as he publicly came out on TikTok in January 2023.

"I think the way I act in Season 5, honestly, might be a little different," Noah says in the same Variety interview. "I will be fully aware of who I am. Knowing all of that about myself and being able to invest that in my character, I’m honestly just excited.”

“This emotional arc for him is what we feel is going to hopefully tie the whole series together," Ross continues. "Will is used to being the young one, the introverted one, the one that’s being protected. So part of his journey, it’s not just sexuality — it’s Will coming into his own as a young man.”

When will Stranger Things 5 film?

At the BoxLunch Gala on November 9, which honored Feeding America and where David Harbour was named the Giving Ambassador, David offered some insight into the plan for Stranger Things 5 now that the strike is over: "We got to film that last season of Stranger Things, don’t we? I got to be down there, like, in a couple of days. We gotta get going — we’re late!”

In addition to hyping up how eager everyone is to get back to filming, David also mentioned how much Hopper has inspired him over the course of working on the show and hopes that he can take the character's "strength, his courage, his dedication, his powerful love for his family, and for right and wrong, [and] his ideas of justice" with him after the series wraps.

Is there a Stranger Things season 5?

STRANGER THINGS. (L to R) Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, David Harbour as Jim Hopper, Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, and Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven in STRANGER THINGS. Image via Netflix.

Yes, there will be a Stranger Things 5! In February 2022, brothers, writers, and creators Matt and Ross announced both the date of season four, and that season five would be the last installment.

"Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things," they say in the statement. "We hope that you stay with us as we finish this tale of a powerful girl named Eleven and her brave friends, of a broken police chief and a ferocious mom, of a small town called Hawkins and an alternate dimension known only as the Upside Down."

When is Stranger Things 5 coming out?

Production was supposed to begin this summer, but because of the writers' strike (and the subsequent SAG-AFTRA actors' strike), Stranger Things 5 was delayed. Now, we're hoping to see it in late 2024 or early 2025.

"Duffers here. Writing does not stop when filming begins," @strangerwriters tweeted in May. "While we’re excited to start production with our amazing cast and crew, it is not possible during this strike. We hope a fair deal is reached soon so we can all get back to work. Until then -- over and out. #wgastrong."

But on September 27, after the writers' strike came to an official end, we got another exciting announcement when @strangerwriters tweeted, "we're back." The SAG-AFTRA strike will have to end before they can begin production on Stranger Things 5 with the actors, but for now, the team is writing again. Hooray!

Who is the new character in Stranger Things 5?

STRANGER THINGS. (L to R) Finn Wolfhard as Mike, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan, Sadie Sink as Max, Natalia Dyer as Nancy, Noah Schnapp as Will, and Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven. Image via Netflix.

Linda Hamilton (The Terminator, Children of the Corn) is joining the final season. We don't know what kind of role she'll be playing, but we do know she loves Stranger Things as much as we do.

“I don’t know how to be a fangirl and an actress at the same time,” she said in a video announcement at Netflix's Tudum event. “I’m gonna work on that.”

We're also expecting to see Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Noah Schnapp as Will, Finn Wolfhard as Mike, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas, Sadie Sink as Max, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin, Priah Ferguson as Erica, Natalia Dyer as Nancy, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan, Maya Hawke as Robin, Joe Keery as Steve, David Harbour as Jim Hopper, and Winona Ryder as Joyce. Whew.

Is Millie Bobby Brown done with Stranger Things?

STRANGER THINGS. (L to R) Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven in STRANGER THINGS. Image via Netflix.

Millie Bobby Brown is returning as Eleven, but she said in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily that she's looking forward to the next chapter of life. Now 19, she started the series when she was 11 years old. “It’s been such a huge factor in part of my life, but it’s like graduating high school, it’s like senior year,” she says. “You’re ready to go and blossom and flourish and you’re grateful for the time you’ve had, but it’s time to create your own message and live your own life.”

Other members of the cast have also expressed their thoughts on the show's end.

“It’s interesting to constantly just be reminded how much people have resonated with it," Gaten Matarrazzo said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "It’s something that’s so important to all of us and has just been essential to the growth that I’ve had over all of my teenage years into my 20s. It’s the defining aspect of the past 10 years of my life.”

Even if Finn Wolfhard, isn't quite ready for the show to end, he knows it's time. "If Stranger Things went on any longer than five, I would say it would be ridiculous,” Wolfhard told Uproxx. “I think the Duffer brothers figured out, I would imagine, a perfect ending in five. We didn’t even know if we’d do two. So we’re happy that people still are around and want to watch it.”

Is there a Stranger Things spinoff coming?

STRANGER THINGS. (L to R) Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin, and Finn Wolfhard as Mike in STRANGER THINGS. Image via Netflix.

"There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things," the Duffers say in their statement announcing the end of the series. "New mysteries, new adventures new unexpected heroes."

In addition to the Stranger Things: The First Shadowstage play in London, we're also getting a live-action spinoff via Netflix. No one knows what the spinoff is about — except for Finn Wolfhard, who happened to guess it!

I will forever and always be a Steve stan, but let us know who you're most excited to see in Stranger Things 5, in the comments and on Facebook. And check out our TikTok for more fun celeb and pop culture content — like seeing Millie Bobby Brown at the Brooklyn Nets game!

Caramel fans, make some noise! I've got the ultimate copycat recipe for one of Starbucks' tastiest seasonal drinks, the Caramel Brûlée Latte. Each time I order it, it's the perfect dose of sweetness, but of course, it impacts my wallet a lot more than I'd like it to.

In the vein of saving some cash this season, I'm making a whole lineup of Starbucks drinks at home. This Starbucks Caramel Brûlée Latte recipe only calls for six ingredients, ones I foresee myself using again and again throughout the year. Gotta love a yummy drink that's *also* affordable. Here's how to make it!

Craving more? Check out the recipes for the Peppermint Mocha, the Eggnog Latte, and cold foam.

Is the Caramel Brûlée Latte seasonal?

Yes, the Starbucks Caramel Brûlée Latte is seasonal. It returned to the winter menu this year, alongside other fan-fave drinks like the Peppermint Mocha, the Sugar Cookie Latte, and the Chestnut Praline Latte.

What is the difference between a Caramel Latte and a Caramel Brûlée Latte?

The difference between a Caramel Latte and a Caramel Brûlée Latte at Starbucks is the syrups used to make each drink. While the Caramel Latte uses a simple caramel syrup, the Caramel Brûlée Latte actually incorporates a signature Caramel Brûlée sauce to build the beverage. Additionally, the Caramel Brûlée Latte is made with whipped cream and a sprinkled topping, whereas the Caramel Latte is just espresso, milk, and caramel syrup.

Ingredients For Making The Starbucks Caramel Brûlée Latte At Home

The ingredients for the Caramel Brûlée Latte were super easy to find, either online or at the store. This list reflects everything that goes into the chain's original recipe, all except the syrup. Since Starbucks uses their very own (and very sweet) Caramel Brûlée sauce, I used a combo of caramel and vanilla syrups instead, in hopes to emulate the taste.
More than anything, this recipe is flexible and customizable – use your favorite milk instead of 2% (I used cashew milk 😋), omit or change certain toppings, or try out different amounts of sweetness. It's your drink, after all!
  • 1-2 shots espresso (If you don't have a way to brew espresso at home, you could either order a few shots from your closest cafe or simply use regular, very strong coffee.)
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp caramel syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla syrup
  • 1 tbsp brûlée bits, for topping (I used Spice House's Coffee Cake Sugar to save time, but if you want to make the bits yourself, Mom Makes Dinnerhas an excellent recipe!)
  • Whipped cream, for topping

Directions For This Tasty Starbucks Caramel Brûlée Latte

  1. Brew your espresso (or strong coffee) like you normally would. While you wait for it to brew, grab a cute mug.
  2. Add the caramel and vanilla syrups to the mug.
  3. Use a separate mug to microwave the milk for 2 minutes, or until steaming. To make it thicker and frothier, you can use an electric frother after heating to create a thin layer of latte foam.
  4. Once your espresso (or strong coffee) is done brewing, pour it over the syrups, stirring to combine.
  5. Pour the heated, frothed milk over the espresso mixture.
  6. Top off your drink using the whipped cream and brûlée bits.
