With pink being the signature color for the month of October for a cause near and dear to my heart – I couldn’t let the month end without posting something about a color that can take on so many personalities!
I can’t tell you how many times I ask what color scheme someone has in mind and they say “not sure, but just not all pink”. You don’t need to be a “pink person” to incorporate the color into an event. Here are 5 suggestions on how to blend the color in without feeling overwhelmed by it.
1. GO SUBTLE: A very light blush pink can be a gorgeous accent to an otherwise neutral color palette.
2. INSERT IT SOMEWHERE UNEXPECTED: Like a cocktail! You don’t need to pick pink dresses, flowers or table linens to add the pop of color. Didn’t you know?… color can taste good too!
3. PARTNER WITH A PATTERN: A pattern by nature can be bold and eye-catching. If you want it to be it can be a distraction from pink hues you would like to make secondary and compliment those beautiful designs.
4. PAIR WITH A BOLD SOLID: Colors like Black, Navy or Pewter can offer a more masculine balance to feminine pink. A bright fuchsia hue pops very differently off of these bold backgrounds than it would off of white or a pastel. The beautiful brides make for a pretty great compliment as well!
6: HIDE IT: Really can’t come to terms with putting pink right out there? You can still add it somewhere that will be with you every step of the day!
