holiday color to think about as you gather your supplies this weekend. • Orange, purple, and pink. These vibrant colors look beautiful together when natural elements are combined. Here in northern California we still have some rusty fall leaves to choose from. Pair them with a silvery-purple succulent for a centerpiece, like this one from Flora Grubb Gardens (designed by yours truly). • Citrus yellow, creamy white, and forest green. Citrus colors are perfectly appropriate this time of year, and they're a beautiful contrast with deep evergreen branches. This gorgeous arrangement comes from Saipua. • Turquoise and lily-white. Simple paperwhites look beautiful with bright blue on this gorgeous table by Chelsea, featured on Project Wedding. • Navy blue and cream. Dark blue linen has a nice natural look when paired with plain dishes. Love the little dried fern as an organic element too. From Canadian House and Home. • Soft silver and textured black. Another one from Canadian House and Home... this combination has the potential to be garish, but using rough-hewn black ceramic dishes and soft silvery foliage makes for a lovely and harmonious table. Mercury glass is a great way to get silver without an overly flashy effect. What will your color palette be this year for your holiday dinners?
