Honeysuckle Pink Flowers for your Wedding

I made a guest-blog-appearance yesterday on Under The Moon, the official blog of Lasso’d Moon Designs, with a nod to Pantone’s Color of the Year, honeysuckle.  Honeysuckle is a medium-pink with undertones of red–some might choose to call it a reddish pink, but I’m on the true, medium-pink page with it myself.
