Hi friends! With the year (already!) coming to an end, it’s time to start thinking about new beginnings. Which brings me to Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery! I love this year’s pick, which Pantone describes as a “fresh and zesty yellow-green shade.”
Of course, my thoughts immediately turn to weddings and how lovely Greenery would be in all those spring and summer weddings coming up. The shade is pretty bold, so would need to be used carefully, but is perfect for to add a bright pop of color to some of your décor details. Here are a few ideas:
- Attire – No, I’m not calling for bright green tuxes or bridesmaids dresses! Incorporating Greenery into small attire details – like your groomsmen’s socks and pocket squares or the bride’s shoes – is a fun way to add an unexpected splash of color.
- Stationery – A touch of Greenery would be lovely on your invitations, menus, place cards and more to give off a fresh, energetic vibe. (Image courtesy of Wedding Paper Divas)
- Tableware – Again, less is more here. Try adding a water goblet or a charger in the Greenery shade while keeping the rest of your flatware, glassware and china a little more neutral. It makes things interesting!
- Florals & Greens – The shade is called “Greenery” after all! Play up the foliage in your centerpieces and floral arrangements to pay tribute to the shade. Or make the stems of your favorite flowers a focal point in some of your pieces. (Photo by Amy & Stuart Photography)
Apart from weddings, I think Greenery is going to be huge in fashion, home décor and more. Can’t wait!
