Four Trends We Love for Winter Events

As the air gets chilly and the leaves begin to fall, you know winter is coming.

Although we may not love the weather, we can get excited about some beautiful trends we are seeing come to life for autumn and winter events.

1. Warm metallics – coppers, mercury glass, warm golds, and toasted bronzes are perfect cozy colours for this cold season. Not that these are anything new but they are perfect to soften and warm up an event space during the chilly months. Pair them with white flowers for a winter wedding, or with bold rich tones for a gala dinner.

2. Marsala – after being announced as the colour of the year by the Pantone Colour Institute, this rich earthy colour is popping up everywhere. Pair it with pastels and gold for a daytime ladies lunch, or rich greens and browns for an earthy tablescape.

3. Velvet – although a versatile fabric that can be used year round, we love this plush snuggley fabric for winter. In dark tones such as navy blue velvet looks regal even in the most rustic settings. Pair with marsala and copper and you have a dream lounge setting.

4. Foliage – living walls, hanging foliage installations, or even foliage centrepieces are very on trend for the winter months. It can be chic and modern, or rustic and organic depending on how you style the rest of the space.
