Color Coordination Inspiration: Three Ways to Dress Up Purple

Springtime is almost upon us‚ thankfully! While we’re excited for warmer temperatures, we’re glad that there’s still time to use gorgeous, wintery shades for event décor. To help bring you through the last stretches of the season, we’re showcasing color coordination with three amazing purple palettes today that can make any event look truly royal.

In this look, we see the round tables dressed with tall, dramatic centerpieces that include all of the colors from the palette. This look features Purple Smoke Shantung Table Linen with Steel Classic Napkins, with metallic silver candle holders setting off the rich linen.

To offer a gorgeous contrast, the longer tables at this event featured Silver Birch Table Linen, a beautifully textured metallic.

Beautiful greenery provides an element of contrast and shimmering Silver Alkaline Napkins bring the whole tablescape together.

Featured in this look is the Mauve Sonnet Table Linen, and it’s set off by the Purple Smoke Shantung Napkin. We love the way the translucent purple stemware complements each table setting, and the lush bouquets match perfectly.

This tablescape also features stacked charger plates and dishes for a layered, gorgeous look. At the base of the stack is the Luxe Mulberry Charger, which matches beautifully with the other table décor.
