See More Green in 2017

It's that time of year again!!  The release of Pantone's color of the year.  This year I'm uber excited because it just so happens to be a shade of my favorite color.....GREEN!!!!!

Introducing GREENERY....the color of 2017!

"Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment.  Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose"

- Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

It reminds me of life, trees, plants, veges, avocados (also one of my favs), grass, nature and olives (another one of my favs....especially in a martini).  This color also goes along with the continuing trend of more foliage and less florals within wedding decor for 2017.  As for color schemes, greenery is one of the ultimate neutral colors that you can pair with just about anything.... deep shades, pastels, bright colors, or even other neutrals.
