Pantone for St. Patty’s Day

As most of you know, Pantone has chosen Emerald as the color to represent the year of 2013. A vibrant hue with elegant air that reminds me of nature and the upcoming arrival of Spring. Oh how I love that this shade transforms so easily into soft mint, one of the color trends seen in fashions, weddings and parties the past several months. Hello warmer weather, longer days and blooming flowers. Are you as excited for Spring as I am? Well in the meantime feel free to go gaga for green and channel your happy as St. Patrick’s Day approaches. Not only will you be on trend, but perhaps you can avoid being pinched too…(wondering if people really do that anymore?!)

Here’s how you can celebrate green in all it’s glory for your St. Patty’s Day bash.

Emerald & Mint

Think emerald. Think mint. Choose chevron patterns. Modern garland & poms. Shamrock touches. Mason jar centerpieces. Serve San Pel. and festive cake. Give Andes mints (my all time favorite.)

1 Chevron cake 2 Garland 3 Shamrock paper punch 4 Tissue poms 5 San pellegrino 6 Andes Mints 7 Tinted Mason Jars

posh little tip: san pellegrino bottles easily transform into fabulously chic vases for single stem floral arrangements.

Fun tidbit about me: I happen to have a personal connection to the lovely color of green. Both my girls have birthstones in this hue (Peridot and Emerald,) so my appreciation for the color extends far beyond the trend.

Although Spring is near, they days in the Pacific NW are still quite chilly. Stay tuned for my next St. Patty’s post featuring a simple recipe that will keep you nice and cozy until the weather warms up!
