Grape Red

The inspiration for my dinner party was a colour. A deep grapey red (almost purple) - like the frills on a red oak lettuce, the glossy dark red of a cherry or the skin of an aubergine, the leaves of radicchio and treviso, red onions, radishes, red pears, raspberries...the list goes on. These orchids were exactly the colour I was after as was this begonia leaf .
