Peachy Orange

There are many mixed feelings about the colour of the year, I love it, that’s what matters for this blog. Colour experts Pantone have given us a peachy orange shade named Living Coral, or Pantone 16-1546, HEX/HTML: FA7268and RGB: 250 114 104 – as the colour of the year for 2019.

Described by Pantone as “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”.

Its time to celebrate, its what makes life fun, its what keeps us interested, its what keeps us going forward so when planning your 2019 wedding here’s the 7 things I would recommend you consider if you choose the colour of the year.

Tired Wedding Cake decorated with coral coloured flowers


Wedding Cake

Cake, I love cake I think everyone loves cake why not carry the Living Coral colour into the traditional tiered Wedding cake.

Make each tier a different colour and flavour.

Hey! Go all out or keep it simple ask your cake designer to decorate the cake with hues of Living Coral and create tiers flavoured with Prosecco, Luxury Belgium chocolate or Coconut & Lime.

Following the cake cutting ceremony, everybody can then have a little piece of this tier and a little bit of that; the guests will all be beaming from ear to ear over the flawless flavour sensations.



Bubbles & Dessert Table

What to serve, the Living Coral colour will also transcend itself into our food & drinks, so, when thinking about your dessert table consider Living Coral coloured food items such as: delicately flavoured orange blossom macaroons, red velvet cake pops stamped with orange popping candy, orange vanilla glazed doughnut rings or orange & champagne flavoured cheesecake.

Compliment your desserts by serving drinks beaming in the colour like: Gin with Pink Grapefruit or Prosecco and Rose flavoured Shaved Ice served in a gold rim glass.

Bouquets & Buttonholes

I love fresh flowers, you can have a simple elegant design or larger more dramatic arrangements as your table centrepiece.

For a beautiful summer feel consider using Living Coral coloured roses, peonies and coral tinted  hydrangea’s.

A Living Coral Rose buttonhole will look striking on any mens coloured morning or bespoke tailored suit.

Finishing Touches

Let the Wedding Breakfast begin!

Sparkle is so important, create an amazing table setting, by theming your napkin with your tablecloth in FF6F61; Living Coral to you and me.

Consider accessorising your tables with statement pieces such as gold or silver charger plates,  gold or silver cutlery and sparkly rimmed glassware or on the other hand keep the colour rustic with ivory and green tones.
