The casual earthy tones of this color palette is perfectly suited for an evening at the beach or a lakeside party. Actually, it’s ideal for any outdoor event. The grayed down purple, the use of taupe and other natural tones brings a level of sophistication to this easy-to-implement palette. The greens come from the vegetation and foliage and the neutrals from mostly natural materials that adorn the table.

Adding one accent color, in this case purple is what brings the excitement and sophistication. It can easily be changed out for a burnt orange, or dusty rose with the same effect.
