Pantone Color Trends Spring 2015
Color is everywhere, and no one knows color better than the color experts at Pantone. Hot off the heels of Fashion Week, Pantone announced the top colors for Spring 2015. We saw a collection of overall soft hues – a mix of cool and warm, but all subtle. The top 10 color collection is meant to be minimalistic, going by the name “En Plein Air,” a French expression translating to “in the open air.” The entire palate confirms the notion that color is a lifestyle, and isn’t merely just for fashion or home decor, but every aspect of a person’s life…including weddings and events!
Two shades we’re particularly loving are Aquamarine and Toasted Almond.
Aquamarine channels the icy blues of winter as well as the robin’s egg blue of spring, making it a perfect color for any event. The shade pairs well with white and natural accents. You can also mix in a pop of color, such as the pink seen above, for an eye-catching effect.
Toasted Almond is a neutral beige hue that transitions well from season to season. The color pairs well with other neutral tones, pops of metallic, or bold complements. Flattering on bridesmaid dresses and easy to accommodate on trendy dessert bars, Toasted Almond is a great color to consider for your next event.
Popular Themes for 2015 & 2016
In addition to colors, Pantone predicts the following themes to gain influence in the coming years.
Symbolizing transformation and new beginnings, butterflies are a perfect theme to reflect the new life and responsibilities of becoming a Bat Mitzvah! Whimsical and feminine with countless vibrant color options, butterflies can be the main focus of your next event or a complement to one of Pantone’s beautiful spring colors.

Another popular theme to look out for will be art-influenced details and decor. Prints and colors are being translated from the art world into everyday application. Paint splatter, artist palettes, bold abstract prints and pop art are just some examples of how art can make an appearance at your next event.
