Blue? Green? Lavender and pink? “What are your colors?” is a question asked early and often. Color palette is the backbone of event design and that decision is one of the first you’ll make when designing your wedding. Paintings are an excellent starting point and the daring yet whimsical style of Matisse is a wonderful place to begin.
Henri Matisse is fittingly known as a master of color, breaking the established rules by utilizing a bold and striking palette to create his instantly-recognizable works of art. One of the best-known artists of the 20th century, Matisse upheld the classical traditions of the French beaux-arts while embracing styles ranging from Impressionism to Abstract Expressionism, all the while incorporating sensual colors that explode off the canvas. His goal of creating everlasting beauty can provide the basis for turning the blank canvas of a modest venue into your own masterpiece.No comments
Sorrel tea is the yin to mulled wines yang. Mulled wine evokes images of warm festive sipping by the cozy fireplace in snow-covered cabins. Sorrel tea, on the other hand, is served cold and glows with deep ruby red clarity that sparkles in the Caribbean sun. It is brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar - lots of sugar. The culminating taste is more complex than a sun tea and slightly sweeter than traditional lemonade. It is often served with rum (10 Cane anyone?) which can be added at the last minute making it a versatile unique signature cocktail that graciously accommodates the non-alcohol drinking guests. If a theme of sorrel tea drinks appeals, consider an alcoholic or non-alcoholic sorrel tea served alongside lemonade. The strikingly different hues nicely complement one another.No comments
