Finding the Perfect Purple
Recently my good friend, Cealleigh, married the love of her life in a beautiful ceremony that took place in a gazebo overlooking a pristine California beach. I was honored to act as her Matron of Honor, and possibly even more excited when she asked me to create the favors for her reception! Cealleigh loves orchids and took cues from their colors for every facet of her wedding decor. She had the idea for some purple soap embedded in opaque soap for the favors, and I embarked on the journey to find the perfect hue for her soaps!

I brought all of these samples, scented with a range of my favorite florals, to her bachelorette party and Cealleigh chose the color created with equal parts Red Blue and Sparkle Violet for her special soaps. The result was (if I do say so myself) quite stunning.
The boxes were created by Cealleigh’s mother-in-law and I think the box and the soap really compliment each other. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness, Ceal and Greg!
