Each year Pantone puts out the color of the year. Well this year the color is Marsala, and there couldn't be more confusion over what this shade of color actually is?  Many think of it as a dark red or brick, others go with more of a mauve, and yet more people say berry?  It's a tricky color for sure, but rich and lovely!

 

 

We do fantasy tables for Bridal Festivals, and this year we had to give our take on Marsala with a contemporary, sparkling design. Since it's such a tricky color, we decided to bring it in through the flowers and touches of it with the paper. Ivory sequin linens, gold beaded chargers and gold sequin brooches on the napkins made this a very elegant setting.

We leaned toward Marsala being more of a berry/deep red and it looks great with red....see what you think?  Disclaimer...again, this my camera phone we're working with here people....this is why we hire the pros :)
