Portland Wedding Florist | Pantone Color of the Year 2017

Wedding Florals + Pantone’s Color of the Year 2017

It’s official. “Greenery” is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2017.

No surprise here! Greenery (and greenery ;)) have been trending amongst our brides for the past couple of years. As a wedding florist, I love incorporating greens into  arrangements. It brings a natural, authentic, lush feel to a wedding.

Garlands as table runners during the reception has been popular the past few  years. However, there are many other ways to incorporate greenery. Below are some examples of greenery taking center stage and adding beautiful color and texture to some of our past weddings.

If you are a getting married in Portland or the surrounding areas (travel welcomed), contact us about being your wedding florist! Let’s see how we can incorporate “Greenery” into your wedding florals.
