Wedding Sugar Palette #0903 | Dream Green


Christmas tree lots are popping up all over town right now. There is something about that rich green color that makes me so happy, no matter what time of year it is. Because it is such a powerful color, I paired our green with a few subtle pastels that would add much needed splashes of lighthearted color throughout a wedding. I would love to see this palette in a December reception, with bold green taffeta or silk table linens, silver vases filled with lush white bouquets, the tables glowing with gorgeous Glassybaby votives in an icy aqua color they call Cashmere. Sweet wintery perfection...

Wedding Sugar Palette #0902 | Warm Plum


On my very long list of favorite colors, purples are near the top. These shades make for such a warm palette, perfect for Fall weddings where guests have just come in from the cold and damp weather.

Wedding Sugar Palette #0901 | The Premier

Lately, I've given a lot of thought as to what I can contribute to the wedding and events community through my blog, and have come up with a colorful solution! This morning, I'm very pleased to post the premier of "Sugar Palettes". Each week, I will post a fresh new palette, specific to the time of year, the season and constantly evolving inspirations.

"Fall-ternative."

We are well into Fall in Seattle. Although I'm happy to pull out my sweaters and warm slippers after a really hot summer, I usually can't wait to get through these cold seasons and back to Spring again. When we think of Fall, it is so typical to envision a plethora of pumpkin oranges and yellows, brown leaves and dark reds. This palette above is my take on a softer side of the season. Growing up near the water, one of the first things you see when Fall hits is how dark the water gets before a good storm. I chose that deep sea blue as my starting point for this palette. To keep things warm I added a pale gold. This could be bridesmaids shoes, table linens and glistening flickering candelabras. I added a cool ballet pink for contrast and a warm cloudy off-white to ground the colors with. This would make for a comforting and elegant fall wedding, out of the box, but definitely not out of style.
