Color of the Year
Pantone Living Coral Inspiration
Color lovers, rejoice! The Pantone Color Institute the 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral. “Just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life, vibrant yet mellow, Pantone 16-1546, Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment," says Pantone. The sentiment behind the color choice is a beautiful commentary on modern life, and the color itself is totally gorgeous.
Of course, here at For Your Party, we think the annual Pantone color of the year announcement is the perfect inspiration when party planning, and this year is no exception. In fact, Living Coral is said to have “humanizing and heartening qualities” that strike a “responsive chord” with consumers craving human interaction and social connection. That surely means different things for various people, but what we read between those lines is: Living Coral is the perfect color for your 2019 parties!
How to Style Your Party or Wedding with
Pantone Living Coral
For a fabulous Pantone Living Coral inspired party, layer the coral in as many ways as you can! Think cute coral cocktail napkins, custom printed frosted cups with a vibrant coral design, and even a tasty Living Coral inspired punch or cocktail. Really looking to infuse your day with this energetic and lighthearted color? Go all out and invite your guests to wear their very best Living Coral clothing inspired, nail polish or lipstick.
You can also take a cue from the deep sea origin of Living Coral and add some natural coral and seashells to your decor. Think outside the oceanic box too! We definitely think that Himalayan sea salt lamps cast a warm coral glow. Plus all the good vibes. Don’t forget how many flowers come in bright coral colors, too: roses, peonies, gerbera daisies and tulips, to name a few!
For food, try a coral colored ombre cake, melon like cantaloupe or watermelon, and coral colored macaroons. Another tasty and colorful option would be to keep in line with the ocean-inspiration of Living Coral and add smoked salmon to a delicious charcuterie board. Yum.
However you choose to include Pantone Living Coral in your event's color palette, embrace the “vibrant yet mellow” vibe that Living Coral brings—offering a sense of safe shelter in the midst of modern life. Your guests will love the welcoming environment you create as you celebrate with the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year: Living Coral. Cheers!
