2017 Color of the year

Hello!

It's 2017 and January has flew by. I hope you enjoyed the holidays with friends and family. My daughter was sick for Christmas :( It seemed to be something that was going around in her school and it finally hit her on that day. But we made the best of it. 

Today I wanted to discuss the color of the year which is...... "Greenery". I think it's amazing for the floral world. We use greenery with everything and it seems to be a trend using all different types of greenery. I remember growing up the only greenery I knew and the flower shops used were leather leaves but now the sky is the limit for greenery. I love how Pantone's choice is bright. I've been hearing mixed reviews but let's see what Brides to be of 2017 are choosing so far. I haven't seen one yet.

The use of the Pantone's color "Greenery" if you take a closer look is in alot of things especially in flowers. The majority of stems and leaves are literally this color. Let's a look at a couple of examples.

The color of the year wasn't only used in the florals but in the wineglasses, napkins and candles. I think the lime on each plate setting is so cute and unique. I think it doesn't have to look like a forest to achieve this color scheme.  Look at the next example from Strictlyweddings.com.
