Pantone's Color(s) of the Year, 2016

Every year, those of us who work in the events industry--specifically in the parts that have to do with design--wait with bated breath for Pantone to release their top color prediction for the following year.  But this year, it was a bit different.  Not only did we receive word that Pantone was crazy about ONE color, but it seems they couldn't decide between TWO!  

So for 2016, the hottest colors in the wedding industry will be (drum roll, please!) Rose Quartz and Serenity!  I have to admit, I was a tad bit shocked that they chose two very soft, muted, pastel-y shades--after years of bold choices like emerald, radiant orchid and marsala.  But I guess the brides have spoken and and are opting to "speak softly and carry a big stick."  (Sorry, history-geek reference there.)

At Classical Tents, we love to spot upcoming trends and add to our inventory accordingly.  This year, we've added SO many new things...most of which will pair beautifully with these soft shades of pink and blue.  Be sure to check out our "New Items" page, and don't hesitate to set up a showroom visit to view everything in person!

And in the meantime, we've assembled quite a selection of inspiration images--from Pinterest, of course!--to help you find the perfect ways to incorporate a little Serenity and Rose Quartz into your 2016 event.  Enjoy!  And happy planning!
