Summer Whisperings of Pink and Baby Blue

Pink and Baby Blue are two of the softest colors available. Both of these colors give off a calming and peaceful energy. Baby Blue is a color that closely resembles the color of the sky, which gives it a light and airy feeling. When you gaze at something the color baby blue, you naturally begin to feel a little lighter and maybe even happier. It is one of those colors that naturally soothes, and has a way to make our troubles seem a thousand miles away. The color Pink has these same qualities. While it is not the color of the sky, unless it happens to show up in the sunset, it is still a light color that instantly makes our day a little brighter.
While it is traditional for baby showers to be decorated in pink or baby blue depending on the sex of the baby-to-be, they are also appropriate colors because they are both peaceful and relaxing colors that promote tranquility. This also makes them perfect colors for summer weddings – especially outdoor weddings! Just picture the bridesmaids and flower girl coming down the aisle in a baby blue or pink dress. The wind is blowing just enough to catch the fabric so the guests can see it gently “kissing” the dresses – almost as if it’s a whisper of the wind. Thus, creating a beautiful prelude to the main attraction – the bride!
