Passion For Purple

Whether you call it purple, plum, violet, grape, or eggplant, it is THE color this year in event decor! I gathered together some beautiful photos for your own celebration inspiration.
Particularly noteworthy is the mixing of hues. I think the combination of lighter tones with darker ones adds depth and interest to the color scheme.

  1. I agree! I think Pantone got it wrong calling Turquoise the color of 2010. Purple is popping up everywhere and looks fab!
