choosing a color palette for an event is often the first thing that needs be decided since so many other details will be chosen based on the color combination. if you aren't sure where to start or need to choose an accent color i love kuler. you can play around with endless color schemes and find tons of color inspiration! another great tool for choosing colors is the paint store...i often pick up paint chips to help inspire my next project. you can also check out sherwin williams color visualizer and see tons of color schemes...there are infinite possibilities...maybe that's the problem.
