{Party Palette}: Shades of Orange + Gray

So if you've been reading my blog for any time you might recall that I was an orange bride myself. So I think it's safe to say that I'm definitely a huge fan of the color! Back in 2009, gray was just emerging as the new ''it'' neutral for weddings. And although I didn't end up using gray in my palette, I definitely wish I could have a few more weddings (same guy of course) so that I could style my wedding in every color palette imaginable! I love the idea of pairing shades of orange with gray for many reasons. But mostly, I love how these colors seem to balance each other out so well.

Orange is fun and exciting and just bursting with energy, while gray takes a more somber approach with it's cool undertones. What I also love about this palette is that you can surely use it for any season. But I especially love it for Spring and Summer! So what do you think? Might you have a little love for this party palette?
