A Passion for Purple | Halfpint Design - Purple parties are my favorite. Come check out how to create some of these fantastic looks!

A Passion for Purple

Did you know that purple was designated as a royal color for centuries? If you were caught wearing purple in Ancient Rome and weren’t royalty, the punishment was death. {Yikes!} Since purple is my favorite color I would have been in big trouble back in the day. Or…maybe not. Purple was also one of the MOST expensive dyes and therefore out of reach for most people anyway. Gratefully we can now get just about anything in any color we imagine; including royal purple. We’ve got some beautifully designed purple parties today by created others who share my passion for purple. Take a peak and start planning your next purple party…without the threat of execution!

Purple First Birthday Party:

A Passion for Purple | Halfpint Design - I love simple cakes and this lovely naked cake is complemented by a fully frosted rosette cake below. All sporting cut butterflies in purple.

I love the simplicity of naked cakes, which is complemented by a fully frosted rosette smashcake ornamented with a few lovely butterflies.

This party stayed true to a lavender color scheme, with only slight variations in value. {Lightness or darkness} When you stay with the same color all the way through it’s important to change up the texture like they did here with the board board, rosette cake, petal tablecloth, and sequin runner.
