Purple Makes For An Enchanted EveningSep 18, 2013
When it comes to weddings, purple is the bee's knees. Purple is one of those colors that can make an affair look truly sublime. And, it's a tried and true color theme, not some temporary trend that will be going out of style in ten years. It will hold up to the test of time. Why? Because purple is a festive delight. It's the color of royalty. It has the richness of a Napa grape mixed with the hues of an evening sky. Purple is splendidly feminine without being too girly to scare off that groom of yours. All of this adds up to one fabulous color choice for any wedding celebration. A darker plum is heaven for a winter affair while a pale lavender is absolutely dreamy for a summer event. Better still, a purple palette of light and dark shades is a killer combo so don't be afraid to mix it up. As you can see, I am a true purple die-hard. In fact, purple is one of my top two all time colors (blue being the other one, and, with both solidly in my color wheel, I am one lucky girl). And, I am far from the only purple fanatic. I see purple lovers expressing their devotion in weddings everywhere. So, it was a no-brainer when I decided to include Enchanted Evening as one of the colors in the Simply Stunning Collection. Enchanted Evening is a rich, deep purple cake stand that will add a pop of color to your wedding cake display. Now, let's celebrate with an ode to purple. Here are some my favorite purple confections to spark your imagination and make you fall in love with purple all over again. By the way, cake stands are not just for cakes. Cupcakes, macarons, candies, pies, and any sweet treat you can think of deserves its own display. Here are some yummy suggestions that will make for a perfect pairing with an Enchanted Evening Cake Stand. Which one is your favorite? They all look delicious, don't you think? It's a toughie!
