Here is a bit of color inspiration for you. I started with lots of shades of greens, dropped in some golds and an aqua, along with pops of purple and black & white accents.

Color Inspiration -- green, gold, aqua, purple

Notice how I varied the values (darkness/lightness) and the saturation (dullness/brightness) of the greens, in particular. I think this helps those pops of purple not look too wild.
