Check It Out: Pantone Inspired Table Linen

July is upon us, and you know what that means‚ 2014 is already halfway over! The year may be in its second half and winding down, but one thing is here to stay: Pantone’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid. If you check this blog regularly, you know I’ve been all over this purple shade for rental table linen, and I’m not done singing its praises! I think the color will continue to work for events throughout the summer, and even into the fall and winter months.

Using Radiant Orchid for Your Table Linen

Radiant Orchid is a bold choice for table linens, runners etcYou love the look of Radiant Orchid as much as I do, but where should you use it in your table design? The quick answer: wherever you want! Radiant Orchid linen may be bold, but it’s still versatile. You can use Radiant Orchid in rental table linen of all kinds: napkins, tablecloths, runners, overlays and so much more.

Adding to Your Color Palette

OK, so you know you want to use Radiant Orchid in your event design, but what colors complement it best? You actually have more options than you think! Radiant Orchid pairs well with shades of all kinds, including those of the same color family‚ think blush pink and lavender‚ as well as those that are completely opposite, like freesia or aqua. Radiant Orchid sparkles with neutral colors like light gray or gold as well.
