Kelly Strong Events: Pantone Color of the YearEach year Pantone declares a color for the year. This year, the color is Greenery and I think it’s perfect. Pantone describes the color as “A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.” Pantone goes on to explain, “Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another, and a larger purpose.” Who doesn’t love the idea of a rejuvenation? Especially right at the New Year. Regardless if you are the New Years resolution type, there is hope and optimism that comes with January 1st. Here we are almost in 2017..ready for a fresh start, ready for new challenges.

For events, I take the color quite literally and find inspiration in using greenery in decor. I love incorporating lush greens throughout events. Providing such a natural, effortless beauty; it is the perfect backdrop to highlight your accent colors. Greenery brings a little bit of the outdoors inside your event.

Here is a little inspiration for incorporating 2017’s Color of the Year into your event design…
