Drum Roll Please.....

It is official, Patone Color Institute has selected TURQUOISE as the color for 2010.

"Turquoise is universally appealing. It puts everyone in the same state of mind — on vacation," says Jane Schoenborn, design director at Lily Pulitzer. "Turquoise for us is a really big color. A lot of times it's transporting, whether you're actually going to a resort destination or not."

Editors Note" Gather LLC has no official comment on the suitability of Lily Pulitzer for your 2010 party wear. We just liked the quote and agree that turquoise is a great color for 2010.

When reading the various articles on this subject, the word VACATION got me pretty excited. "People crave escapism and freshness after a tough year." Does this mean destination weddings are in our future...I sure do hope so! My white legs are in need of the hot tropical sun!

Weather you are planning a destination wedding or an event in your home, you will be seeing turquoise everywhere you turn!

This precious save the date will even get a veegan excited about attending the reception at an Old Dairy Farm!!

Now, this is a save the date is one that will stay on refrigerators for years. It is simply beautiful!

I am not sure where you will find a turquoise get-away car, but oh how fun it would be!
