From Kesh Designs in Chicago comes this incredible design. Orchids in shades of purple cascaded onto the tabletop to meet our Preston Bailey Collection Champagne Heather Napkin Bands wrapped around our Stone Metallic Faux Dupioni napkins. With our Champagne Metallic Forest linen, it tied together beautifully for a golden look.

And one of our favorite looks, really bringing all the nuances of Purple to the party, was this Purple Rain inspired event at Engage!16 at The Breakers in Palm Beach. Our Purple Sequin Taffeta danced the night away at this after party with the Prince vibes all around! We can’t think of a better way to celebrate with this magical color!
