{Orange Crush}: A Palette of Orange, Yellow, Shades of Gray + White

August 11, 2011

{Orange, Yellow, Slate Gray, Gray + White}

I don't know about you, but I'm in love with this palette of orange, yellow and shades of gray. To me, there is just something so very fun and uplifting about these colors. When it comes to finding the perfect palette for your late Summer or Fall wedding I highly recommend considering colors like these. An unexpected palette like this one will definitely wow your guests. Plus, it's palettes like this one that allow you to easily incorporate fun patterns and ideas. What could be better than that?

Sweet Flower Girl Dress + Crossword Puzzle Table Setting

I personally haven't been to a wedding with this color palette. But I can imagine how fun it would look! Personally, I cannot get over how lovely that table runner is. See what a difference a fun pattern can make? Patterns have an easy way of creating great visual interest. Plus, a table runner is a quick and easy way to add a big pop of color to your tables. And crossword puzzles incorporated into table settings? Such a unique idea if you ask me. Oh, and who isn't loving the looks of this sweet flower girl? Her dress is truly adorable.

It is very sunshine and spring isn't it? I wonder if anyone has done it in the dead of winter? I think it would work wonderfully - especially with the slate tones.
