Using the Pantone Color of the Year in Your Next Event

Welcome to 2017!

After a 2016 that was filled with shocks, surprises, and memorable moments, lots of us were ready for you, 2017.

It’s a new year, ripe with possibilities, fresh for the taking, and bursting into new life…It’s no wonder that Pantone chose the color of the year to be greenery. We all needed a reminder of fresh possibilities, back to nature moments and the comfort of the outdoors.

Here are some ideas for incorporating the color Greenery into your next event:

  1. Bring the outdoors in, literally. From palm leaf placemats, to greenery napkin rings, to hedge walls, to large tropical plant rentals, you can make your event simply florabundant! (Florabundant definition: refers to the sumptuous beauty of rich floral hues). We predict more of this in all our events this year.
  2. In your event logos. Use Greenery as one of the logo colors to get started on the right foot. Then customize decor to coordinate!
  3. Use the color on custom bars, or painted adirondack chairs to really give things that fresh feel. Chrome Event Rentals as well as other vendors here locally can customize bars and chairs to your liking.
  4. Greenery Eggs & Ham, anyone? Okay, that might be a stretch, but you see where we’re going here right? Why not incorporate greener food items this year? We prefer fresh ingredients to the children’s food-color version, but hey, sometimes a little food coloring can really create a memorable moment!
  5. Event lighting that glows greenery. We love this year’s shade, and your attendees will too if you incorporate some uplights and moving gobos in the signature shade. We suggest adding some amber to accent it and add depth.
  6. Plan your next Pre-Function or Event to a neighborhood Botanical Garden for an exotic mixture of greenery, nature and serenity.
  7. Greener Thinking = Sustainability: Rethink, Reuse, Recycle for a smaller waste footprint, a healthier Ozone, Environment and Earth.
  8. Use fresh from the garden garnishes for your cocktails. Basil, oregano, rosemary, pineapple leaves, edible flowers and more add color and will enhance the aroma and flavor or your cocktail.
