SCARLET, PLUM, and ROSE
Combine lush, painterly flowers, a palette of richly muted plums, roses, deep red accents, and gorgeous calligraphy that nods to old love letters and you’ll have the most romance-inspired celebration. This timeless palette is perfect for a winter event filled with glowing candles and sparkling details. I love the silver dress worn by Bergren Rameson, above right, and the glimmering jewelry, bottom row!
