Greenery: A New Neutral


Because of its ability to unite a myriad of colours, seasons, and mediums, Greenery is the 2017 Pantone Colour of the Year.  Greenery can be the focal point or a calming tie-in for your event.

Recalling freshness, energy, and lushness, there are many ways you can incorporate this colour to evoke different moods at your event.


You can punctuate greenery with colour accents.  Use it as a base linen and then go bold with rich hues and pops of bright florals.  We have a range of green linens that can work as a base for your bright ideas.

Greenery pairs beautifully with bright colours, deeper shades, jewel tones, and metallic pieces.  By bringing foliage to the forefront, you can add a dimensional luxury and invigorate your aesthetic.

Incorporating greenery in your backdrops is a way to add volume amidst a monochromatic scheme.  Its versatility means you can achieve whatever suits your mood: playful and vibrant; minimal and calming; or moody and romantic.

Especially with white and neutral shades, Greenery can add a burst of freshness and vibrancy without overpowering your scheme.  You can use large leaves as your place cards, tie garlands around balloons or cocktail tables, or drape greenery over chairs.  Take a look at our selection of chairs to kickstart your imagination…the possibilities are endless!

Whether you use Greenery as a base, centrepiece, backdrop, or accent, be prepared for a stunning visual.  This year’s Pantone colour also has a sunny aspect to it; creating warmth and hope.  By bringing in an element of nature and unity, you encourage your guests to not only connect with the environment; you are inviting them to connect with your event.
