Champagne: A Color of Luxury

The color Champagne has been around since the early 1900s. This unique color can have tints of yellow, and sometimes orange, but is most commonly a close resemblance to the color Beige. As many know, Champagne is not just a color, but also a sparkling wine known for the bubbles found within it. This spirited drink was the inspiration for the color Champagne. As with the color, there are several different shades associated with the drink as well. To understand the importance of the color Champagne, you need to look at the history behind its namesake.

Champagne has been in existence since the 5th century and was given the name because it derived from the Champagne region of France. The producers of Champagne worked very hard to ensure that it would be a historic wine associated luxury and nobility. Due to their diligence, this is the reputation associated with Champagne. French kings and other European royalty used Champagne for important events which contributed to the wine’s fame. Champagne has been passed through many centuries as a drink reserved for the most noble and luxurious occasions.

The color Champagne was created in honor of the drink in 1915. For this reason, the color is worn for special occasions such as weddings, soirees and other notable events. Champagne is a beautiful color that easily adds a touch of luxury to its surrounding environment.

Everyone Loves a Dusty Rose

Dusty Rose is one of those colors that people find hard not to like. It is a muted shade of pink, and actually brings to mind a pink rose that was caught in an Oklahoma dirt storm. This is because while it is pink, it also has a tint of brown to it. While that combination may sound ugly, it is actually quite pleasing on the eyes. The actual color pink has a very calming and soothing energy about it. Now, hot pink has the tendency to make us want to be more active, which actually promotes boosting our energy levels. However, hot pink is still soothing because it brings us happy and positive thoughts. The color Dusty Rose does not boost our energy levels like hot pink, but instead the neutral brown tones found within it cause us to feel very relaxed and calm.

The calm and relaxed feelings that Dusty Rose brings, are often times very welcomed in a world as busy and stressful as ours. The color is perfect for redecorating a room in your home or even for weddings. When guests see a ring bearer and flower girl sporting the color Dusty Rose, they immediately settle into a tranquil state of mind – the perfect mindset for a wedding. Everyone loves to take time and relax therefore, everyone loves Dusty Rose!

Ways to Enjoy Fall and Winter with Your Kids

Fall has finally arrived, and for many of people on the East Coast, it appears Winter may be coming a little early. While many of us enjoy all of the festivities that go on during the Fall and Winter months, we often get so wrapped up in getting everything done that we miss out on the important opportunities we have to spend time with our kids. 

Unlike other seasons, Fall and Winter often drive families indoors as it is just too cold to be outside playing. As many of you know, all of this time indoors together can cause tensions to rise and tempers to flare. However, when you take the time to plan a little bit ahead and have some fun activities that you and your children can do together, this can be a time of fun, laughter and bonding for your family. Below are a few ways that you can enjoy Fall and Winter with your kids.

  • Have Family Movie Nights – This is the perfect time of year to start planning family movie nights on a weekly basis. Make these events fun by taking turns picking out a movie and making some yummy treats to be enjoyed during the movie.
  • Cook Together – The majority of children enjoy to cook, especially when it’s learning how to make something yummy. So, take advantage of all the time you have indoors with your children and allow them to help you cook. You can help them make a special meal for the family or can just get together on a Saturday morning and begin baking pies and other holiday treats together. 
  • Play Games Together – One of the best pastimes for families to do together is to play games. There is nothing wrong with the “old” board games, and many children actually get into these games once they are started. However, there’s also nothing wrong with having a family video game night either.
