Happy New Year! I hope you all had an amazing holiday, and had a great time bringing in 2012. This past year was definitely a memorable one as it was about one year ago that my dream of opening Trove quite quickly became a reality. I am so thankful for all of the support I have received from family and friends, and am especially grateful for all of the brides and grooms, wedding coordinators, and other people of the industry that helped make this a very successful first year. I’m looking forward to continuing to grow this business, and meeting lots of new faces along the way. So far 2012 is shaping up to be a busy year, and there will be a few extra exciting things happening with Trove in the months to come.
One of my favorite things of the new year is when the Pantone color of the year is announced. It is the artist in me that gets excited over silly things like this. Although there are many color trends that are highlighted for the coming year, there’s always one that makes first place and for 2012 that color is Tangerine Tango.
I am especially happy over this choice as orange has always been one of my favorite colors. Even Frank Sinatra has been quoted to say that “Orange is the happiest color”. But of course this isn’t just any orange – it’s tangerine. A beautiful red-orange that is both fun and sophisticated. Matched with soft green hues it would make for a perfect spring time affair pallet, or pair it against a cobalt blue for a fun moroccan twist. Especially for a vintage wedding, this color would be perfect used in small doses for that extra pop against softer tones of white, cream and gray. Here are some great ways to add some tangerine dream to your event:
Wishing everyone a happy week as we all try to exit “holiday mode” and get back into the swing of things :)
