My Color My Idea

By Partycraftsecrets @partycraftsecrt
My Color My IdeaIt's no secret that everyone has a color; squint into your wardrobe and you'll find your costume-color.  Squint at your lounge room and you'll find your easy-living color.  Now squint at your kids and get a laugh.  
Whether you're aware of it or not, you're forever picking colors to add to your personal color palette; the color of you new shoes, the last car you bought, the cereal box you instinctively reach for, and even the next shade of hair color you chose to brave.
At Partycraft Secrets we love color.  Color co-ordinating things is a quick and certain way of pulling a party together, making all your purchasing and crafting decisions easier, and it ensures that your party-photos will be a knock-out.
If you've followed our How To Host a Themed Party craft EBook, and the How-To Pick a Theme guide, then you've probably already established what the color scheme for your next party will be.  If you haven't, then pull out the inspirational images you've collected and do the squint-test; half close your eyes and stare at the pictures you've collected (or even the invitation you have selected).  What color(s) do you see most?  
Congratulations – you now have your COLOUR-SCHEME! 
Don’t be distressed if it’s not a “conventional” color scheme – remember, a unique party comes from original party theme ideas.  Whether it’s pretty pastels or bright bolds, color coordinate everything - right down to the candles you put on the cake. 
Still looking for inspiration?  Read our How-To Pick Colors guide or visit Pantone Color for all things color:
  • There's an article on the 2011 color of the year (Honeysuckle)
  • Tick the box in a survey  to see if you've picked the most popular Spring 2011 color for NY fashion week.
  • Or read through other people's inspirational-color selections on the MyColourMyIdea page: I chose a sky blue color for finding peace.

Color is everywhere, why not find out more about your favorite color and use it to shape your craft ideas for kids, activities for toddlers or card craft... go on... pick you color and use it everywhere... or limit the number of pencils and crayons you put on the kids' craft table and get them to make the next pictures to color all in your favorite hues for something you-nique!
