6 Ways to Incorporate the
Pantone Color-of-the-Year
Into Event Decor

Pantone announced Greenery as its Color-of-the-Year 2017 recently. It’s safe to say the refreshing, revitalizing shade is the new black for event decor as planners think up creative ways to incorporate Greenery into their room setups. Take these six designs by event production pros as living proof.


This year’s Allie Awards in Atlanta incorporated turf-covered love seats, ottomans and rugs from AFR Event Furnishings’ Grass Collection.

green2 Revelry Event Designers, along with design studio Mark’s Garden, embellished a bar with moss panels, natural lattice, succulents, orchids and a backdrop of hedges for an event at Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.


Rafanelli Events used grassy centerpieces as a natural complement to the unfinished wood tabletops at Goodwill’s The Good Party in Boston.


Forget chandeliers. Karla Events sourced tropical foliage to create an overhang above each table at a Miami event.


A hedge wall with a lot to say made for an eye-catching display at Central Park Conservancy’s Taste of Summer event by Rafanelli Events in New York City.


Event planner Marcy Blum put a witty spin on farm-to-table with hors d’oeuvres served on grass-filled trays. Small bites were cleverly styled to look like “pigs in two blankets.”

Table Decor

Consider using non-floral table decorations such as pine cones, magnolia leaves, berries, fruit or nuts (a lot of which could be free) — especially items typical of your area.
