Just Announced: Color of the Year 2014

 

Pantone has just announced the color of the year for 2014. We have anxiously been awaiting this announcement.  Each year, it is so much fun to see what the color will be.  This year it is a hue of purple and we love it!!! (of course)

Did you know that purple is considered a neutral?  It has warm AND cool tones which make it a very compatible color partner.  The new color is soft, but yet powerful enough to stand alone.  What colors will you pair it with?  Make sure to let us know.

Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2014: PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid

“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.

“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

For more than a decade, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design. Past colors include:

Glow Stones are Gorgeous!

Want a WOW FACTOR for the entry of your next fabulous event?  Use glow stones.  These little stones are a tremendous way to add impact and wow to any entry or exit.  Set a tone for your event as guests arrive with this magical path.  These pebbles are non-toxic, photo-luminescent and waterproof. Just expose them to a light for 10 minutes, and they will illuminate for up to 12 hours. (No electricity required.) Mix them with pavement or gravel for a stunning surprise.

Wow, wow, wow!

We can’t wait to use them!

The Magic of Elegance: Owen Valley Junior Senior Prom 2011

Sweets Bar and Decor before the guests arrived.

They danced nonstop all night! We were thrilled!

We were fortunate to be asked to attend the prom this year!  It was thrilling to receive the invitation to coordinate and design the Owen Valley High School Junior Senior Prom 2011.  This would be the first year  ever that the prom would be held enitrely at the school.

To make it extra special, we went to work with fundraising events that gave the prom committee the extras they needed for a great prom.  Tons of news releases, special posters and the creation of the Extreme Pancake Breakfast plus  Little Prince and Princess Contest for a new event, the Grand March, paid off.

We had our work cut out for us and enjoyed every single second!  Transforming the gymnasium into an elegant ballroom was so much fun.  Special lighting and gobo from Evans Audio Visual www.evansav.com transformed the room as the DJ kept EVERYONE ON THE FLOOR the entire night!  We’ve never seen anything like it and were thrilled the attendees were having such a great time plus completely exhausted from dancing so much!  The sweets bar was a special treat along with the decorated tables and fabulous entry way.

The prom didn’t stop there.  Our coordination and partnership of the Post Prom had everyone taking their chances on fun and gifts.  A DJ, casino room, refreshments and prizes all kept the attendees there until the very last minute; just in time to take a ‘breakfast to go bag” with them.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Owen Valley Junior Class and parents.  We already have some great ideas for next year!
