Pantone creates buzz every new year with their Color of the Year announcement. We’re excited to see this year’s color, Radiant Orchid, adorn tablescapes, embellish invitations and walk down wedding aisles, but the trend we think will be most radiant at this year’s weddings is sequins! We love a party that’s sparkly and sophisticated and there are endless options for adding shimmer with sequins. A sequined tablecloth makes for a dramatic head table; bridesmaids dazzle in sequined dresses; sequined table runners add just a little bit of sparkle to guest tables; and a sequined backdrop gives guests a fun place to pose for pictures. The little sparkly discs are even being reinterpreted in fabric patterns, paper garlands and wedding cake designs.
Sequins have often been reserved for evening affairs but now we’re letting them shine in the daylight. This spring and summer, they’ll add glamour to garden parties and outdoor ceremonies. Thanks to Pantone’s Color of the Year we’ll be dreaming in shades of purple and now we’d like to declare sequins as the Embellishment of the Year! 2014 is going to sparkle and we can’t wait for all the glitz and glitter to come.
