Event trends: Fall colors

Pantone’s color palette for the coming fall season is a mix of bright colors with simple neutrals. Pairings include warm prints with cool metals and a mix of old and new influences, creating an intriguing balance between colors, according to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Bamboo, a surprising fall hue, brings a warm, exotic flavor to the season. Radiant Emberglow, a traditional autumnal tone, emanates the warmth of a glowing fire. Offering a sense of continuity from Spring, playful Honeysuckle adds a bold punctuation point. Phlox, a deep purple with a hint of mystery, makes an outstanding statement and can stand on its own. Evoking the freshness of a cool mist in a deep forest, Cedar is a versatile mid-tone neutral green. Pair it with Deep Teal, a strong, blue-toned green.

Whether you are planning a wedding or corporate event, gave fun mixing the dramatic colors with neutrals such as Nougat, Orchid Hush and practical Quarry.
