Tipsy Tuesday - What Color Is Your Palette?

When working tonight on an upcoming event design I always start with color and texture to set the tone.  Finding just the right hue for your celebration is key.  While Hawaii lends itself to the lovely tropical vibe which incorporates citrus colors and grounding earth colors, it also reflects the hues of the sparkling blue pacific against a breathtaking sunset.  Take these elements into account but let your mind be open to the use of mixing both texture and fabrics when it comes to your linen selections and decor.
