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.

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.”
