Four Ways to Celebrate Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year

Each year PANTONE chooses a new color that is an expression of how they view the upcoming year. This year they chose the color Greenery (Pantone 15-0343) and we couldn’t be happier! Greenery is a yellow-green that radiates freshness. For us, Greenery is loaded with excitement, refreshment and life. Because of the heavy symbolism behind the vibrant color, it is a great example of the freshness and hope that accompany marriage and starting a new life. If you are obsessed with PANTONE’s color of the year like we are, we have four different ways you can incorporate it into your wedding decor!

Greenery

 

 

Linen

Create pops of Greenery with bright linens! Green is an unexpected color for the reception fabrics, which will make your wedding decor unique and so fresh. It is an especially wonderful choice if your wedding is in the Spring or Summer. We love browsing through Chair Covers and Linen‘s inventory. Green is just one of the special hues that they have in stock. Glitter, matte, patterned, they have it all!

Lush Venue

Of course the easiest way to introduce PANTONE’s 2017 pick is to choose a venue with naturally lush foliage! We love all of our venues here in Colorado because we are so close to the raw wilderness of the mountains. Barn venues are great if you want your wedding photos in tall fields of grass or low swaying trees. Cottonwood Glen is one of our favorite lush venues. The glen is designed as a ceremony destination, with tall meadow grasses, and towering cottonwoods. The venue includes a grand fireplace and two amphitheaters. PERFECT for an outdoor wedding.

Even before your wedding day, you can use Greenery to symbolize the start of your new life! Invitations are becoming a unique form of art. PRESSED CO. is an incredibly talented Gold Calendar vendor who has an eye for color and style. Not only can PRESSED CO. create your custom wedding invitations, but they also have packages that include save the dates, table cards, menus, and every other stationary that you need on your wedding day!

Hanging Florals

Hanging florals will never go out of style. Vibrant, life-affirming Greenery is the perfect way to add some energy to your ceremony or reception decor! Wedding planners can recommend many talented florists who can make all of your floral dreams a reality. We love every wedding that LVL Events has planned.
