2017 Event Decor Trends

Posted by jloriginaldesigns on June 21, 2017 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Every year new trends appear for the event industry.  These trends can be party themes, new decor products, design or a color. This year is no exception.  Take a look what is super popluar right here is the Greater Philadelphia area!

 1. Pantone's color of the Year is Greenry!

A color trend that is creating a design trend of using greens to decorate all kinds of events.  Green is not just an accent color this year.  We are seeing this color trend in fashion, and decor.  Brides are choosing greens to be their focus for decor and as a bounus they are staying on budget or saving them money to use elsewhere!  Greens are easy on the budget and Brides are catching on.  Greens can fit into any style event, from rustic to elegant. 


2. Copper wire lights:

Love this trend, gives extra twinkle any where you place these lights.  They can be wrapped around ordinary items, placed in bouquets, added to garland and so much more.  These lights are in high demand. They come in handful of colors lights, gold, silver, copper and even clear wires, as well as submersible!!  



Rustic theme is still hanging in there with the use of lanters.  Lanterns are being used for the ceremony by lining the aisle, at the reception for , centerpieces, enterances, and decor through out the room.  Lanterns can be filled with the wire light as shown above, candles and flowers.  They come in various sizes and finishes.

Emily and Bill May Wedding

Emily and Bill Carey
Wedding Date: May 13, 2017
Service: Floral Design, Venue Design
GreenBriar Oceanair Golf and Country Club in New Jersey

Emily and Bill, a great couple who were referred to us by Emily's Brother and Sister-in-law who we had the pleasure of creating their wedding floral designs. We wish them many years of happiness!

Emily contacted us right away and we could not wait to start her wedding! Emily was on trend for 2017 using plenty of "Greens", copper wired lights and lanterns. Her vision was simple, bring the garden inside with a spalsh of gold.

One of our favorite last minute requests came when Emily came up with a super fun guest book idea.  She has each guests' name print out  and clothes pinned to twine we wrap around an amazing arch drapped in greens and "cream" and "faith" roses. Through out the night the guests were to make their way over to the arch to take a polaroid of themselves. Then replace their printed name on the clothes pin with their polaroid.  At the end of the night the Bride and Groom will have a book filled with polaroids of their family and friends that they will cherish for a lifetime.  

Below is a couple more pictures from their wedding day:
