What a lovely neutral colour this is. Use as your main colour to build your palette on, or as a background colour to make your other hues pop.

Combine with all shades of whites, creams and champagnes

–       With all shades of  browns from Milk Chocolate to rust to Dark Chocolate and cream to lighten

–       With darker berry shades and chocolate

–       With magnolia and touches of Tiffany or Ice Blue

–       With fresh green and shots of  Zesty Orange and red

–       With rust, chocolate, cream and a  sprinkle of Olive Green

–       With Cherry Red, and touches of Milk Chocolate

–       With Antique Rose, dusty pink and off white

–       With Olive Green, Spring Green and pops of Zesty Orange or Saffron Yellow

–       With Blush Pink, magnolia and touches of Milk Chocolate or Antique Rose

–       Latte Honeymoon roses, seed pods, pebbles, weathered wood draped with lichen, grape vines, or brightly coloured flowers such as poppies, Australian natives, or berries

–       Coffee bar  – make it special with single origin coffee, or free trade coffee – with sugar coated stirring sticks, liqueurs such as Frangelico, or a coffee liqueur such as Tia Maria or Kahlua, crushed peppermint flakes, chocolate flakes, caramel and chocolate syrups, cream – and a good coffee machine(with a barista if you’re really inclined). Try flavoured Australian coffee (order via the internet)

–       In summer try an iced coffee or milkshake bar – tall glasses with the above condiments, plenty of whipped cream, fun straws, coffee syrup, chocolate shavings, coffee and chocolate icecream to dollop on the top

–       A ‘help yourself’ table laden with vanilla, chocolate and coffee flavoured  biscuits, cakes and desserts, cream, syrups, chocolate shavings, and candied nuts, cream, flavoured ice creams – guests can make their own dessert with as much or as little piled on their plates as they desire

–       Favours of chocolate coated coffee beans, hessian sacks full of coffee beans, bags of coffee flavoured  lollies/sweets, tiny bottles of coffee flavoured liqueurs

–       Antique Rose coloured bridesmaids dresses accessorized with coffee coloured shoes, hair pieces, bride in a pale coffee coloured gown, men in  darker coffee coloured suits, brown shoes, latte coloured bouquets with dried vines and berries

–       Dark distressed wooden tables and chairs, stone ware pale latte dinner plates topped with darker coffee coloured dishes, table runners of coffee coloured  textured silk or hessian, succulents in rusted tubs, rust coloured napkins,  coffee, chocolate and  cream coloured groups of candles

–       Rainbow coloured chairs at zinc covered, or stone tables, poppies, daisies and spring greenery in glass jars or coffee coloured stoneware bottles,  coffee coloured crockery, bright colours in glassware, coffee and coloured streamers or bunting strung from the trees

–       An barn or stables with old wooden furniture and accessories, antique linen covering vintage side furniture, ornate mirrors, armfuls of Australian native blooms and leaves on coffee coloured cloths, coffee stoneware, bone handled cutlery, bark covered votives on every surface you can find to put them on, a roaring fire
