I always credit Charlotte Voisey and Jocelyn Etherington. Both of whom inspire me every year at Tales and beyond. this combines there efforts with their sparkling personalities and gives us that combination in a cocktail that becomes the Royal Purple hue that is known to the beautiful city of NOLA.
