PURPLE REIGN

Today we wanted to showcase our passion for purple!

Some color experts will tell you that all colors have meaning and symbolism, which is mostly tied to psychology. Purple is a color that has royal qualities and also encourages creativity.  We think purple pairs well with golden metallics and wanted to share some party inspirations.



Decorate with Purple and Gold
Set the table with neutrals and purple accents. To create a festive look, decorative your party space with paper garland and tissue poms strategically hung in doorways or above food tables. 



Coordinate the Party Food
Cabbage, fingerling potatoes and blueberries are great to add a purple splash to the menu. We've gathered tasty menu options to keep your guests coming back for more.  



And don't forget to serve purple refreshments!

Purple Rain Martini 
- 2 1/2 oz pomegranate-infused sake
- 2 1/2 oz pineapple juice
- 1/2 oz Chambord
Combine the infused sake, pineapple juice, and Chambord in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. 
1 1/2 cups Over the Moon 1% Milk
3 tablespoons frozen grape juice concentrate (not diluted)
ice cubes
Blend until smooth. Serve and enjoy. For extra creaminess, replace the ice cubes with 1/2 cup fat free or lowfat vanilla frozen yogurt.
