SOOO Ready for Spring

This winter weather is really getting old. I’m ready for warm weather and pretty blooms! It was 7 degrees the other night in Kansas City…I’m over it!

Speaking of “pretty”, I’ve been obsessed lately thinking about the color yellow. I’m not entirely sure why…I don’t own anything yellow and its not a color that is requested often by my customers. But when I look at images using yellow as the primary color, I smile. I can’t help it.

There are so many ways to use the color yellow and each conveys a different mood. A soft subtle butter yellow with a sage green evokes the feel of a serene garden while a bright yellow paired with an emerald green gives off a vibe of tropical flair (think lemons & limes!). A deep golden yellow paired with a rusty orange and a hint of magenta provides a palette suitable for a Middle Eastern affair. Add a touch of gray and black and you have created a very mod palette. Give it some punches of chartreuse, plum, watermelon or baby blue. Its definitely more versatile than most give it credit for.

So in my preparation for spring, enjoy this sunny inspiration and be prepared for some stunning invite designs in the next couple of weeks using these colors!
