2018 Spring Trends: So Fresh and So Clean

 

So Fresh and So Clean

 

Create a clean and fresh environment for your event by embracing lots of natural light, greenery, open spaces, and clean lines. If a wedding is in the works, the traditional white dress alongside a black tuxedo will contrast perfectly with lush palms, cute succulents, and overflowing floral décor. Outdoor venues or spaces with large windows will create the perfect ambiance for photographs, and invoke modern vibes for your special day. A contemporary color scheme of white and green, fun textures, and rough wood elements work to create a space perfect for a flourishing marriage or memorable event.

2018 Spring Trends: Monet Garden

 

Monet’s Garden

 

The inspired works of Claude Monet’s water lily ponds and sweeping Parisian boulevards don’t have to be exclusive to the halls of Chicago’s Art Institute. Create an event that incorporates pastels, pressed flowers, botanical bars, and hanging greenery. Lush floral décor and French influenced accents work to conceive a relaxed yet refined atmosphere at your event. Simulating a experience within a garden pairs well with Pantone’s Color of the Year, Ultra Violet, and helps to establish sophistication among delicate ornamentation. Flowery fonts, gold tones, and colored glass provide the finishing touches for an event straight from an acclaimed work of art.

2018 Spring Trends: Royal Wedding

 

 

A Royal Wedding for the Modern Traditional

 

Although we all can’t be part of the royal family, your event this year can still be fit for a king. Incorporating textured glass, intricate lace, and ornamental accents allow for a traditional affair, while a clean creamy color scheme and flowing greenery provide touches of modernity. Venue choice can decide whether your event is for the pauper or the prince, so be sure to have lots of ornate architectural elements present, such as stained glass, crystal chandeliers, or marble flooring.

Make Your Event POP!

For many of us, the first thing we think of when hearing “wedding décor” is all the florals involved. From large bouquets to extravagant table centerpieces, the flowers can often steal the show at a wedding. Décor doesn’t have to be all about flowers though, and many events are incorporating balloons as the central aspect of their decorating scheme.
