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.”

Mason Jars Fun Decor for Your Wedding or Event

Different uses for Mason Jars at your wedding

Vintage styling is very popular today among clothing and accessories, but it is especially characterized for country inspired weddings. There are many ways you can decorate your venue and reception with unique items, such as Mason Jars, barn wood, old iron works, fencing and containers.  The Mason jar is so popular and has a lot of uses.  Did you know that Mason jars were invented by John Mason to improve the process for preserving and canning food?  Your grandmother’s food, as a child, was probably prepared in a Mason jar.

Today, they are used as decoration, and make for very unique, cute décor for many brides. Whether you use 10 or 100, they add a nice DIY (do it yourself) look that fits perfectly into a vintage/ rustic theme wedding.  Here are some great ways to use them:
