{A Citrus Soiree}: Shades of Orange, Gray, Yellow + White

{Shades of Orange, Gray, Yellow + White}

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time you probably already realize that I have a serious soft spot for the citrus hues. Oranges, yellows... yep, those are my favorite sort of colors. Want to know why? Well, the answer is pretty simple. When I look at orange and yellow, my soul feels alive, my heart skips a beat and my creative wheels get to turning. Plus, if you ask me I think they are the kind of colors that just radiate happy thoughts and good vibes. So what better colors to use on the happiest day of your life than these?

Celebratory, lively and full of fun, these are the sort of colors that inspire me. Just look at how that gorgeous citrus inspired bouquet turned out? Simply lovely, if you ask me. Looking to wow your guests? Why not concoct a specialty drink like this one! I love how it effortlessly incorporates this color palette. Definitely a beautiful display! So tell me... what colors inspire you? And how do you feel about shades of orange, yellow and gray?
