{Plum Perfect!} Shades of Purple, Brown & White

May 2, 2011

{Plum, Lavender, Chocolate Brown, Camel & White}

Happy Monday! If you're anything like me, then you're still reflecting on the royal wedding and all of it's beauty. It was regal, it was royal and it was simply majestic. Kate looked gorgeous, her dress was nothing short of Wow! And well, it was simply over the top! Purple, I think, is the most regal color there is! When I think of the color purple, I can only imagine all of the endless possibilities when it comes to styling your wedding. But I think the idea of shades of purple is especially sweet. When plum and lavender come together it's instantly pretty. Combine those colors with shades of brown and we've got ourselves a pretty palette perfect for any Spring or Summer bride. For this bride I imagined all kinds of ideas {continued...}

I absolutely love the idea of dressing your bridesmaids in this deep plum color. There's something special about having your friends wear the same color, yet have their very own necklines. Adds a little unexpected fun, wouldn't you agree? Oh, and aren't you loving this wall of beautiful white china and those gorgeous spring blooms? I can imagine this display looking so sweet at the front of your venue. Perhaps you could set up an area like this where you can have your guestbook sitting. Or perhaps your escort cards even?

Every time I got thrift shopping I have plates on my mind so I can create a wall of plates. Yet some other fabulous find always distracts me from the goal! Love this palette and those plates!
