Colour Combinations – The Perfect Purple

We hosted a lovely Baptism a few weeks ago and didn’t we love their theming!!  The purple was beautiful and perfect for the little princess celebrating her baptism.  Checking out the colour wheel – what does purple mean? “Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition.”

A brief history of purple:

  • Associated with royalty, regality and mystery
  • Roman emperors once wore purple robes as a symbol of regal blood
  • Purple was once an expensive dye to make hence only those with higher status could afford it
  • Perfect colour for events hosted in every season
  • The first recorded use of the word ‘purple’ was in 975AD
  • And of course – the perfect colour for celebrations!

Our event team loves coordinating colours, menus, flowers, chair covers, bonbonniere and anything that you can think of for your special event!

Incredible food with an incredible view.

Nothing like a beautiful sunset to create an enchanting feel for a light lunch, a regal high tea or an early dinner.
Of course a meal isn’t finished without dessert so to quench your appetite a fruity passionfruit creme brûlée or perhaps a warm sticky date pudding, one bite is never enough! Our rich chocolate mousse is one to savour a melt in your mouth flavour topped with whipped cream, another creamy delicacy is our tiramisu, a fresh coffee dessert which leaves a delectable melt in your mouth flavour.
For something more savoury, our mixed cheese plate will keep you going as long as it takes to enjoy a dessert wine, sherry or port.
If your after a sweet and simple little something, our gelato is fresh and cold, match this simple, enjoyable dessert with an enticing hot chocolate, a captivating fresh coffee or a steaming pot of tea and you will be warming yourself nose to toes.
