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.”

Floral Design: What Fun!!!

Spring should be here soon.

With Spring sunshine there will be flowers blooming again!  Some of our favorites are the hydrangea, knock out roses, day lilies, zinnias and flox.

It really is fun to grow them, cut the blooms and take them to the office or decorate with.  If you aren’t that ambitious, go to the local floral store and buy a bouquet of your favorites.

Everyone we know loves beautiful flowers. Before you begin cutting, take a little lesson in the art of floral design with Kate Spade’s floral designer, Ashley.

Here are some tips:

Mr. and Mrs. Anthony and Kimberly “Conley” Denning

Our Bride and Groom, Kimberly and Anthony Denning could not have chosen a better
day to express their love; Their October wedding day was a perfect Autumn  day with just
the lots of sun and bursts of blue skies. ……At last!

They both had a distinct vision of what they
wanted and we provided it!    Anthony and Kimberly chose a “Fall Sunset” theme with beautiful jewel tones of magenta, amber, coral and plums.

The former military couple met at their sons ballgames. Soon, Anthony became a “winner” with Kimberly.  Next,  they became engaged and the wedding planning began! After months of planning each detail, their big day finally arrived. What a wonderful group of people to work with! As family and friends gathered together to witness Kimberly and Anthony exchange their vows at University United Methodist Church we were fortunate enough to meet them all and enjoy their many talents.  Anthony’s brother, Josh Denning, tours the world as a vocalist and gave an amazing rendition of . Julliard trained keyboardist Dr. Virginia Jefferson  and her daughter, NYC entertainment attorney, Ms. Virginia Jefferson offered the ceremony music.

We will NEVER forget Kimberly coming down the aisle to “At Last”.  All eyes were on the bride as she walked through the thousands of rose petals, making her way to the altar.

After the ceremony, guests travelled to the Embassy Suites for the reception.  The  ballroom at the Embassy Suites North was filled with hundreds of different shaped colored vases in the Bride’s palette of  magenta, amber, plum, and gold.  Kimberly ventured all over Indy to collect the unique and colorful vases that  accented the tables. Each of the vases was unique in size and shape- allowing for her vision of a spectacular  sunset look.  We loved the accents of custom eggplant linens, gold chargers and colored votives glowing throughout the evening.

The dance floor was never empty and once Kimberly changed into her lighter, ’dance ready’ dress, she was in step doing the Electric Slide
with her minister.  Dr. Moore’s smooth moves  captured everyone on the dance floor, as they followed him step by step- Electric Sliding.

Kimberly, a former US Army Police Officer and her husband,Anthony a former US Air Force Dental Hygienist share a love for good food , and travel.  Their goal is to explore the globe together. They are looking forward to travelling all around the world in the upcoming years.

Kimberly and Anthony were married- “At Last”
