{Twist & Shout}: Shades of Orange, Black + White

{Burnt Orange, Orange, Peach, Black & White}

Although I'm typically drawn to creating designs that lean towards a more vintage feel, sometimes it's really fun to create a palette with a modern look in mind. You may think of orange and black as being a palette reserved for Halloween, but I think if done right, you can pull this palette off during any season of the year. The trick with this palette is that you want to keep black to a bare minimum. Only using it for the guy's tuxes for example. While the rest of the palette is kept light and airy with fun punches of color splashed throughout. Some of the ideas I'm loving for this wedding include the modern & sophisticated design created for the reception space. I mean who is not loving those fun lanterns? {continued...}

Party Lanterns & Newlyweds in Love
Notice how the table design is kept very minimalistic? Some other fun ideas are sprinkled throughout including a button escort card display which creates a playful visual as well as those fun flags that the newlyweds are holding. I've never seen that idea before! Throw in some fun prints including the incorporation of newspaper clippings plus those great orange and white stripes, and you have the makings of a playful yet sophisticated modern soiree. So what do you think? Are you loving this palette?
