Fab fridays: Decor ideas: Purple and Chartreuse

It is all about Lush purple with Chartreuse accents..Asian style merges with a woodland air. A palette of purple, brown, and chartreuse looks sumptuous when darker colors reign and lighter ones are accents. Linens are varying shades of purple, and wooden elements -- from chairs to chargers -- help set the tone.

Faux bois vases hold sweet peas, mini calla lilies, lady's-slipper orchids, ranunculuses, dahlias, and chocolate cosmos in colors from lavender to plum to espresso; the foliage is equally colorful: Thai basil, lady's mantle, coleus, begonia leaves, hypericum berries, lavender peppers, and fiddlehead ferns.
Whimsical Chartreuse with Purple Accents

The purple, green, and brown palette is lighthearted when bright colors dominate. In this setting, inspired by European pastry shops, colorful ceramic latte cups hold green carnations, mauve roses, and dark-purple scabiosa. A tiered candy stand holds dragees in shades of lavender. Favor boxes double as place cards; their calligraphed bands are tied with thin eggplant ribbons.

Other decor ideas: 

Succulent Centerpiece

In a table setting that evokes an English garden, roses and flowering oregano in mauve tones contrast with succulents (brown-tinged echeverias and trailing crassula) and curly fiddleheads. 

Flower-Topped Fantasy

Use a pretty monogrammed cake as the pedestal for a cluster of anemones, tulips, lilacs, sweet peas, stephanotis, and allium tied with luxurious taffeta ribbon. Before the first slice is cut, the bride can retrieve the bouquet for the ceremonial toss. By Wendy Kromer.

Etched Flowerpot Favor

A glass can be a perfect present for bridesmaids even before the wedding. Each set of tumblers with the bridesmaids' names and a decorative motif, such as a ring of leaves. Also can work as gift favors too.


Sequined Bouquet

Cool silver makes bold fuschia shine even brighter! This bouquet combines sweet peas, roses, and feathery astilbe with helichrysum and beaded leaves. To give it a magical shimmer, pink sequins affixed to wire stems are interspersed among the blooms

Leafy Boutonnieres

Decorate the wedding party (groomsmen, wedding commitees) lapels with fresh and fabric boutonnieres. The leaves are made of handsome textiles, the patterns mimicking the veins of real leaves. To play on your theme, match the contrasting green sprigs to the bridal bouquet.
