When planning an event like a wedding or birthday party take a walk through the farmer’s market or local specialty confections store and you’ll find lots of inspiration. Whether it’s for an already existing color palette that you’ve selected or you are really stumped on what colors to use, you’ll most likely find something that inspires you here. Our color palette this week is a lavender/mauve shade with a honey hue. Figs might not come to mind right away when you say that color palette aloud, but look at their beautiful colors. A fig cake could be just the thing for your party. Of course figs are also wonderful in salads or just with cheese and honey as a starter. Or what about these wonderful lavender macaroons? They come in so many colors and these would make a beautiful favor or sweet dessert. So when you start your planning get out and look around, it will stir your senses and get your wheels turning! Some of our favorite market places in New York for inspiration are Grand Central Station, Dean and Deluca, Sant Ambroeus, ABC Carpet & Home, the food court at the Plaza Hotel, Chelsea Market and Eataly.
