Party Palette | Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid

What's romantic and radiant and all sorts of gorgeous? Say hello to this year's Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. Named by our friends over at Pantone, Radiant Orchid really is a pretty amazing color. Am I right? And with all sorts of pretty ways to bring this color palette to life, I can't help but get lost as I dream of all the possibilities. 

Want to know what color works best with Radiant Orchid? I'd suggest pairing similar shades like a more traditional shade of purple, a touch of lavender, and even a pop of bright fuchsia like I'm showing here. It really does make for a very romantic palette. Oh, and if you're looking for a way to up the glam factor. Just include a little sparkle. Because seriously, what's not to love about sequins and sparkle especially in colors as pretty as these?

Loved the whole theme of Pantone radiant orchid. These ribbons, cards, glasses etc are absolutely awesome. I have also planned a lot of things for my weddings which is on 22nd February. And I have also bought such beautiful things. Thanks to who has helped a lot in buying those things i ever dreamt of. I just want to have a perfect wedding and I am doing the best possible thing to make it happen. Hopefully all is good.
