Incorporating Blossoms with Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral

Pantone has announced “Living Coral” as 2019’s color of the year. Coral is a vibrant shade that will warm up any design plan. For a sophisticated look, pair coral with cool blues or dusty grays. For something fun and flirty, bright oranges and deep pinks will further the overall warmth. Adding in blush or pale pinks, will soften coral’s glow for a more understated look. To help you incorporate “Living Coral” in your next event or wedding we created a list of inspiration blossoms that come in a range of coral shades.

More than Flowers - Incorporating Fruits & Vegetables into a Design Plan

Who says your decor just has to be flowers?! Incorporating other elements into your event, party, or wedding flowers can add an element of novelty or even elegance to the overall design.

Elements like fruits and vegetables can tie your design plan together. They might hint towards a particular location. For example, lemons for a Mediterranean inspired event can add a fresh, bright pop of color and texture or Grapes for an event at a vineyard would pull in the surrounding landscape.

These additions may also ground the floral design in a particular theme. Mushrooms mixed with mosses, grasses, or twigs would create the feeling of a forest floor on the table for a rustic, outdoor themed wedding. Touches like berries or garden vegetables would be perfect for a sweet & refined garden party.

In other ways, the addition of fruits and vegetables to a floral design may simply be sentimental or aesthetic. Your first date was at a wine-tasting? Grapes of course! You simply love the natural texture of an artichoke, go for it!

Whatever your desire or inspiration the addition of fruits and vegetables may be an excellent and (delicious!) choice to incorporate into your overall design plan. Below, we have just a few of the many options to inspire you!
