Warmer weather is a reason to celebrate! As you begin to plan events for spring, incorporating new fabric trends can help make your event feel fresh, bright and exciting. Consider fabrics that are simple and elegant, personal and tactile, or refreshingly colorful and creative. Whatever inspiration you take, CORT Party Rental can help you create an event that is memorable and timeless.
Simple and Elegant
It doesn’t have to be complicated or over-the-top to be beautiful. Take your event concept back to basics to create a refined and welcoming feel. For spring, botanical themes continue to be elegant and popular. This year, natural textures and greenery create a bright, fresh atmosphere. For weddings, Bohemian vibes with burlap and lace are out, and more formal affairs with clean, simple lines and eye-catching details are on-trend.
Personal and Tactile
You’ll want your event to sparkle, but for the right reasons and in the right way. There are so many amazing textiles available that can add dimension to your event. Leave the sequins behind and opt for more luxurious metal accent pieces that can add shine. Use velvet to create inviting spaces for guests, no matter the occasion. Drawing from trends in home décor, styles reminiscent of the 1970s are hot right now in event design, which means gold, brass and rose gold are here to stay. Metallic themes with strong geometric lines and marble accents are very on-trend, and create visual interest that breaks up sight lines as you move from one side of an event space to another.
Colorful and Creative
White everything is out! Color is having a moment this spring, and there are many surprising and delightful color palettes that are popular in events and weddings for 2018. Soft shades of gray are everywhere. Black adds interest and depth to hints of blush, as well as the classic black, white and gold color schemes.
Other sultry color pairings include gold, burgundy and navy, dusty blue and deep red, as well as navy blue and mink. Blush and rose gold or dusty rose and green make for a light-hearted and romantic feel, as do mauve and navy blue. Champagne and bordeaux shades create a wine-colored palette that feels refined. 2018 Pantone Color of the Year, ultra violet, is accentuated by its close cousins lavender and lilac. For events that need more punchy color combinations, pair Caribbean hues like turquoise and lemon, or turquoise and coral.
Keep these trends in mind while planning events for spring to stay on trend and create inspired and welcoming spaces that make your party or wedding the event of the season!
