2018 Pantone Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

19 Feb

If you haven’t already heard, the Pantone color of the year is Ultra Violet.  “Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own,” according to Pantone.com.

We are inspired by this dynamic shade of purple and created a Ultra Violet inspiration board to explore all the possibilities of how to incorporate it into your life.  Enjoy!

Our picks:  Purple Thank You Banner Note Cards, Hot Water Bottle Cover, Woman in boots, Purple hair, Purple popsicles, Purple Peonies Photo Birth Announcements, Living room, Purple Surprise Party Confetti Dot Invitations, Lupita Nyong’o, Wedding dress, Design Your Own Personalized Amethyst Tervis Tumblers, Bumble Bee Self Inking Stamper, Birthday Confetti Hanging Gift Tags, Purple Woodcut Foldover Note Cards.  

 You can also view this inspo board (with even more Ultra Violet inspiration) on our Pinterest page.  Be sure to follow us on Pinterest for inspiration for all your events!

3 Fabulous Summer Salads You Need to Try

11 Jun

Warm weather is finally here.  With it comes an opportunity to lighten up with our food (and mood!).  I love making salads for dinner and parties.  I happen to grow a few varieties of lettuce and spinach in my garden, so any opportunity to use them in a salad is a bonus.  Here are 3 summer salad recipes I can’t wait to try this summer.

I found this Southwestern Chopped Salad with Cilantro Dressing on Pinterest.  I think this would be the perfect salad for a warm night with a glass of white wine.  Or the perfect salad to make for a backyard BBQ.   The recipe is in the link.

This salad is a meal in itself!  For those who like to kick up the heat, this Sriracha Lime Chicken Chopped Salad looks delicious.  So many flavors in one bowl.  Recipe in link.

Now this salad happens to be a staple in my home.  My friend Michele has made this for years and it’s a knock-off from a popular restaurant in Chicago called Portillo’s.  I make this salad all the time for parties and people ask me over and over to make it again (and for the recipe, too!).  Portillo’s Chopped Salad makes a fantastic side dish at a party … or you can add some diced chicken to make it a meal on it’s own.  Recipe in link.

What salads do you make that just scream summer?  Or do you have a favorite recipe that you’re known for?   Share with us in the comments below.
