Shades of yellow evoke pure cheer, while green can create a variety of moods. Both shades can stand on their own, but together they’re a winning combo for warm-weather affairs – especially outdoor parties and casual celebrations.
How To Use It: Start with the most natural elements: flowers and greenery. Vines, amaranthus, and succulents will give your bouquet and centerpieces a verdant look. Canary garden roses, freesia, snapdragons, and ranunculus will create a soft and feminine feel. If you’re keeping things low-key or entertaining guests outdoors, play up the yellow in your palette. Place vibrant lounge furniture adjacent to your dance floor, serve a spiked thyme lemonade or create a photo booth backdrop of hanging ribbons in this happy hue. Looking for something more regal? Mix in a third color, like soft ivory. Use the neutral as your foundation and highlight the other hues in detail like your stationery (cool vintage stamps or envelopes count), sugar flowers on your cake, patterned napkins or the design of your custom guest book.
