Green Echeverias for Greenery

Green Echeverias offer lots of “Greenery” options for 2017.

At the end of 2015, I predicted to Casey and many of our floral design students that Pantone would choose a shade of green for 2016’s color of the year, however, the world color authority surprised us with dual colors in light blue and light pink.

While we enjoyed a year of light pastels throughout 2016 in the form of blush pink bouquets and baby blue linens, we also created a large number of custom weddings and events which featured lots of greenery. From 40-foot table garlands to large tropical greenery arrangements atop tall vases, we’ve designed a variety of “all-green” florals in 2016.

Casey and I are delighted to feature more greenery designs for 2017 with Pantone’s choice suitably named “Greenery!”

Here are some flowers and featured designs that showcase the 2017 Color of the Year.

Green Cymbidiums with red tongues show a great color combination idea for the 2017 Color of the Year. Greenery looks great with dark red.

From Pantone’s press release and website:

“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”
