Pretty up the party hue of the summer - rich purple - with splashes of baby pink and Parma Violets lilac. Add warmth to the scheme with swathes of soft cream and ivory. Bring the full palette to your flowers and balance the drama with décor and details in mix'n'match tones. Flicks of gold will finish the rustic-luxe look.
