Pantone's Color of the Year!
Happy New Year friends! I know we're all so ready to start a new year after the dumpster fire we all went through in 2020, am I right?!! Let's get started then. For me, looking ahead to the New Year means seeking the trends and new inspiration for upcoming weddings, events and designs! Following leaders in design, fashion, weddings and events is a great place to start. For Color Theory, Pantone is where it is at. They help set the trends in color in fashion, art and floral design. If you follow Pantone, you know the Pantone Colors of the Year are Illuminating and Classic Grey.
Pantone states the choice is
"A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting."

I am excited about the possibilities of these colors, and I really feel like I understand the choice. Yellow is a color rarely chosen for wedding flowers, but I think they can be an elegant and classic choice. It is all about the flower choice and design style. My favorite yellow flowers include: garden roses, ranunculus, and billy balls. Grey is a very popular accent color for weddings, and I love to use grey floral accents like dusty miller and brunia berries. If you know me you know I love some added texture!
I was excited to design a bouquet for Paige of Paige Lorin Photography for a desert sunset engagement photo shoot. The results were SO swoon worthy. One of my favorite bouquets to date! Paige is so incredibly talented, she captured it beautifully. Below are a few of my favorite photos from this gallery, and if your dying to see more, check out her website here.
I also designed a few birthday and anniversary arrangements for delivery and these yellow heavy designs are so cheerful and I really do love them all.
I would love to hear what your feeling are about these new colors of the year, and the color trends you see!
