Nouveau (Pastels): Understated and Easy

I don't know. I like pink. It's one of those colors that just catch my attention, especially in edible things like cupcakes or candy. But for the life of me I couldn't picture anyone turning pastels into something chic for a big event. I always thought they were corny colors, a little on the tacky side. Well I came up with a board that had doses of that palette in it, but so subtly done and in off the radar shades like pale peony, grey blue and buttercream. It's a really doable look without compromising the fact that it's a celebration for people above the toddler years.
