Outside of nature, I’m not such a fan of pale purples. I think they can look pretty tacky, actually. Aubergine, though, (sounds so much better than eggplant, doesn’t it?) is just gorgeous. It is one of the deepest, richest colors I can think of, and paired with deep browns and a hint of green, it’s perfect for a lush fall event.

Mood: lavish elegance
Palette: aubergine, chocolate, white

    I LOVE this one! You rarely see purple in weddings, but you make it look classic. And so glad you find a way to work macarons into so many of these boards :)
