{Table Top Tuesday} Dark Blue, Burgundy, & Purple Wedding

Good afternoon readers and welcome back for the first Table Top Tuesday of December!
This week we will be looking at a colour palette of Dark Blue with different shades of purple like burgundy, magenta, and maroon. This colour palette is subtly romantic and is a beautiful palette for the winter months. Let's take a look at some inspirations!


{Decorations & Table Settings}
As we all know, deciding to use blue flowers really puts limitations on your flowers. So, I would recommend using the shade of dark blue for your main linens and even for your girls' dresses. This way you can use the various shades of purple for accents like flowers, favors, and stationary. Of course it is your vision and any of these colours would make beautiful linens.




{Stationary}

All of these colours would make beautiful stationary and the more colours that you use, the more pretty they will become. Because of the romantic nature of the colour palette, using script fonts would be an excellent choice.



{Desserts}

Oh my gosh, you all know how much I love this part! For your cakes or cupcakes you can really use any and all of the colours in the this palette. However, if you're looking for something to give them that extra something special, why not try a red velvet cake? This type of cake is not only delicious, but it gives your cake a nice purply-red colour, perfect for this palette!


Don't forget to cast your vote for next week's colour scheme and I hope to receive your nominations for the New Year's Top 5 Wedding Movie Countdown ... you never know, your favourite just might be #1!

Your ideas are lovely, i am workign on somethign rather unique and wonderful for our wedding, we chose puzzles and dark purple as our theme.I can accross your website by googling purple. and i really love the chalaces witht the bunched flowers. have you got any other ideas of how to bring our theme into play? already we have cunstomised rubix cubes as favours and cut out puzzle invitations, how can we bring in more puzzle ideas without going jigsaw...

Wow! I love that idea! The rubix cubes are going to be such a big hit. For inspiration, try checking out a local board game/mind game store like this one http://www.mindgamesexpress.com/storefrontprofiles/default.aspx?sfid=189133. They will be sure to have lots of different mind puzzles or games that will unique things that you can pull from. If you're creative enough, you could even try adding little tongue twisters or riddles to your place cards, menus, and programs. I've also seen a few weddings incorporate Scrabble pieces into the decor!
I like this theme so much, I'm going to do some more looking into it!
