Pantone Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Dec

Each year, we look forward to hearing from the color authorities at Pantone, their prediction for the Color of the Year. For 2014, we could’t be more thrilled with their selection, or excited for this color trend to take center stage at future events. Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, hits just the right note of a saturated color, but not so deeply jewel toned that it can’t easily adapt to spring and summer color pallet incorporations. Pantone describes their color choice as blooming…

“with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health” – Pantone

We at Solomon Event Planning wish you a radiant 2014, to extra joy, love and health in the coming year!

Coming of Age Summer Bat Mitzvah

Please enjoy these photos by Belathee Photography, who were on hand to capture the true coming of age ceremony for this young lady’s Bat Mitzvah. The event truly focused on family and those in the community that took part in shaping and guiding the young guest of honor. The festivities of the day carried the message of investing in community, with catering provided by Herban Feast, using Washington State local produce and ingredients. The floral arrangements, provided by Metropolitan Market, also featured locally available, vibrant flowers and greens. Guests enjoyed live music, an accessory abundant photo booth and a playful DIY sundae bar. The mixed use of indoor and outdoor space took advantage of the perfect August weather in Seattle!Aliya Blog 5Aliya Blog 9Aliya Blog 8Aliya Blog 6Aliya Blog 3Aliya Blog 2Aliya Blog 7Aliya Blog 1Aliya Blog 4

We are all for DIY and taking inspiration from your surroundings here at Solomon Event Planning.
