If you feel like being bold and want to brighten up your palette, there’s an ultra cool new green you can try – Pantone’s Ultramarine Green. It’s a great color to accent featured pieces. A chevron pattern in green on a cake can really bring some pop to the reception. Pair it with some of Kate Aspen’s favors like the “Love Songs” Stainless-Steel Measuring Spoons or even the “Blossom” Ceramic Salt & Pepper set to bring just a hint of a minty undertone to the decor.
This amazing green is even being used in some wedding invitaions and as you can see, it really makes a statement. Accent your wardrobe by wearing it in jewelry, or even use the color as a prop in photography. Try it in your make-up or let your bridesmaids have fun with the color. Ultramarine green is the perfect blend of mint and jade and is one of the most wearable colors this season.

As the hot days of August give way to the cool nights of fall, we think that Honey Gold from the Fashion Color report for Fall 2012 would be a great color to use for all kinds of weddings, whether you want to go sophisticated and classy, or rustic and whimsical. A great favor for a sophisticated look would be the “Golden Renaissance” Glass Tealight Holders. These would pair well with a beautiful bouquet of yellow flowers and look beautiful with the rest of your table décor.
For a more rustic feel, accent your Honey Gold wedding with our lovely bee themed favors! Whether you choose the “Meant to Bee” Honey-Scented Beehive Candle or some “Meant to Bee” Personalized Clover Honey, you can guarantee that these favors will “bee” a hit with your guests! We love the rustic touch you can create using burlap, which pairs perfectly with Honey Gold!
Rose Smoke is one of Pantone’s shades from the Fashion Color report for Fall 2012. Being the softest shade of this report, Rose Smoke is a sweet and feminine pink that would be a great tone to use for a vintage or shabby chic wedding. Rose smoke would be a beautiful color to use for invitations, wedding dresses, flowers, bridesmaid dresses, and reception decor. We think the “Lovebirds in the Window” Ceramic Salt & Pepper Shakers would be a fabulous favor to coordinate with this hue.
This dusty shade pairs well with almost every color and it’s not overly girly, nor is it too dull. We like the idea of pairing this antique pink with a gold or silver hue. Dress it up or dress it down, this color might be the one you are looking for. Kate Aspen’s “LOVE” Chrome Bottle Stopper is an elegant, light pink favor that your guests will adore!
