{Baby It's Cold Outside}: Shade of Purple, Gold + White

{Shades of Purple, Gold + White}

The holidays are such a magical time. And so what better time to get married? Not engaged? Why not throw a really swanky holiday party? Whatever the reason for celebrating, one thing is for sure ~ there truly are so many ways to make a holiday inspired party come to life. And although I absolutely love the traditional red and green - there is something so fun about using non-traditional colors. Don't you think? That's why I really love how shades of purple marry with antique gold.

So what do you think? Are you liking the way that shades of purple mix with gold? I think it's quite pretty. Oh, and festive too. I've always been smitten with the idea of having a hot cocoa bar set up for Winter weddings. I'm imagining all kinds of cocoa toppings. Like whipped cream and marshmallows. Sounds delicious does it not? So I must ask...what colors do you love most during the holidays? Have a holiday palette requests? See my request page here.

Playful evening dresses with back cut-outs provide not only an extravagant design, but give the wearer the opportunity either much or little skin show.
