Color Fabulous: Blue +Purple

There are no richer tones than blue and purple.  There is just something extremely royal about these two colors when they are in their deep, jewel toned shades.  Also, in their softer tones, they are very ethereal and light– almost airy.

I love the softness of the florals, too– hydrangeas are beautiful flowers with full blooms that come in light blues and purples, which is perfect for this particular palette.  As you can see, when placed against white or ivory (even the shimmery gold linen as pictured), it is a heavenly mix!

This palette is just as striking with its blend of sapphire and amethyst. It adds a bit more formality to the event, but still carries it well on its own– even with a little whimsy, as seen with the feathers.  If you’re looking for impact– these are your colors.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Winter is coming!  Here is a modest moodboard that was part of a picture challenge over at iWED .  The challenge was to use the middle picture to inspire the rest of the board.  I liked the idea of two things for this winter board:  varying shades of blue and ice.  I chose the concept of going cool and warm for the cocktail  hour (you can see the signature drink and hors d’oeuvres by the cake…), by choosing a “not-so-hot chocolate”– cool mocha enhanced by Kahlua and warmed by cinnamon sugar garnish, and a pumpkin soup shooter.  At a glance, the cake looks rather simple, however, it’s frosting is an iridescent color and ornamented with snowflakes.  The crystal tree brings the reminiscence of walking through an icy forest with icicles falling from its branches.  To take the ice concept a bit further, the champagne chiller is exactly that: made of ice.  The centerpieces again, use crystals to mimic ice reflective of the theme.  I always love candlelight at winter weddings, but it plays so well with this theme because the light bounces of the crystals, subsequently doubling the effect.
