Sweet Treat Dessert & Candy Buffets {Purple and Grey Inspiration}

Plan to see some varying color combinations in 2011 weddings, showers, and other celebrations.   This year, the color range of 2010 will meet some new flavor creating a clean, chic design.  For example, the standard pink and mocha will be swapped out for purple and grey and the conventional sage and brown will be replaced with green and yellow.

If I was better with a camera, I could visually share some of my {Purple & Grey Inspiration} with you.  I never have it handy when it is most needed!  

My Inspiration:

First, a fall wedding I attended last October… 

It was the first time I saw someone play with purple hues and do it very well.  From the backdrop lighting to the colored rock candy and signature cocktail of the evening, the colors of eggplant and plum garnished the reception venue.   It was playful and fresh without being too loud and swanky.  With a touch of femininity, it accentuated the bride without overshadowing the groom.

Then, it was time to paint my own bedroom…

I splashed a daring grey-toned paint up on the walls with some hesitation.  The result: a clean, sharp appearance as it popped next to the thick, white molding. 

After this inspiration, what I ended up with was a visually-appealing color combination: purple and grey.
