Well hello! I took a few days off while on a trip with my husband, but I'm back with some friends for a fun challenge today!
As you probably know, Pantone has chosen "Radiant Orchid" as the color of the year. Honestly, before I started reading home blogs, I never knew there WAS a color of the year. Last year I got lucky, as it was Emerald Green.
That one was easy for me! This year, not so much. Radiant Orchid is somewhere between hot pink and purple. Pretty on it's own, but not super easy to work into decor.
So, the ever-so-talented Cassie at Primitive and Proper challenged a few friends to come up with a project using this year's Color of the Year. I let my creative juices flow and came up with...
Brilliant, right?!? I know, not super original but I DO think it's a fun color for Spring. I'm sure we all agree it's time for a burst of color after such a dreary winter!
Not being able to let the Radiant Orchid stand alone, I just had to add some black and white in with it.
With some ribbon from Hobby Lobby and hot glue, I was finished in about 5 minutes.
With the tapered shape of the pot, it really worked better to have the stripes running vertically rather than horizontally. A bit of pom pom fringe added some whimsy to one of the pots.
If you want to try your own Radiant Orchid project, Lowe's has readily available sample pots for around $4.
