Even though the warm summer air is making its exit and the cool harvest breeze is coming, that doesn’t mean that we have to put away all the fun bright colors that we love! (We need to make it through Winter SOMEHOW!) The experts over at Pantone, reinforced by designers in New York and all over the world, have established the colors for Fall and we are so excited to be seeing such bright and vivid colors to perfectly compliment a modern fall palette.
Pantone has set the Color of the Year as the cosmic “Ultra Violet”. Alone, it is already a staunch color to add to any setting representing intrigue and mystery and is a far cry from the playful “Greenery” or soothing “Rose Quartz and Serenity” of years past. However, even greater interest can be attained by pulling in complimentary colors from the fall 2018 color palette.
One of the simplest and most economical ways to bring a pop of seasonal color to an event setting is with linens such as tablecloths or napkins. Imagine dressing all your guest tables in a classic Autumn hue like Pantone’s “Red Pear” and then accenting with napkins in warm and vibrant “Valiant Poppy” to really draw the eye to the setting. Accent with steel grey flatware and cool blue glassware to ground the table and allow the pops of color to really shine!
Floral is another great way to incorporate new and interesting colors into the coming season. Take those same deep hued linens and add drama with a lush and styled floral centerpiece. Use a reflective gold vessel to hold luscious greens with pops of “Russet Orange” roses. Introduce coordinating shades of dahlias, zinnias, and other seasonal floral, add a few tea light candles around it and voila! You have a beautiful table that mimics the warm hues of an Autumn sunset!
