I love the color purple. It hasn't always been my favorite color, but purple has grown on me over the years. I feel a different vibe with each new shade - lavender calms me down, aubergine incites mystery & bright purple brings excitement. Sure, purple was the "it" color Fall/Winter 2008 but that hasn't stopped me from purchasing my new blackberry case in a deep shade or my cruise desert boots from Bottega Veneta in anemone.
Inspired by the color purple, we created beautiful low arrangements for a day wedding at Battery Gardens. The arrangements consisted of different shades of pink and purple flowers including peonies, anemones, garden roses, lisianthus, and spray roses.
The centerpieces were arranged very naturally and had a very garden, organic feel to them. Every bloom seemed to compliment the next, with each having a distinct shade and shape. Although the arrangements incorporated the same flowers, our designers styled each centerpiece uniquely. I'm always delighted when walking into a party and seeing each table being slightly different but cohesive as a whole - it adds much richness and texture to the elements involved. What do you think?
