{Sweet Summer Love}: Plum and Cranberry

April 19, 2009
{Plum & Cranberry}

Plum & cranberry go together quite nicely don't you agree? What's not to love when these two colors come together? When Marilyn wrote to me recently and told me about her upcoming wedding... I was excited to take on the challenge of determining the perfect palette for her special day. Marilyn told me she was considering going with a burgundy color as her primary color and had thought about possibly an eggplant kind of color to compliment. {continued...}

Perfect I thought! And how incredibly easy to coordinate. These colors were born to be together. In my design for Marilyn, I chose to dress bridesmaids in lovely cranberry tea length dresses. Table settings stole the show with specialty plum colored linens and cranberry linen napkins. Centerpieces were kept low and simple in cranberry & plum blooms and bouquets were designed to compliment the look. To add an additional pop of color, centerpieces were designed with cranberry vases. Guests went home with lovely homemade sachets and a sweet note from the bride & groom.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Is there any chance you could do one with cranberry, plum, and gold? I love the idea for a fall wedding but haven't quite got my fiance hooked yet.
