Color Crush:: Shades of Green

This weeks Color Crush is all about Shades of Green.  I was just at an event and their corporate colors are shades of green so thought I would put a different spin on this weeks crush.  The spin?  How to incorporate your corporate colors into your events to enhance the experience of the attendees and weave that branding throughout.

I present to you…fresh and crisp shades of green.

With this color palette, you can do so much.  Here are some ideas.

  1. Bring in pillows and mix and match them with the venues pillows that are currently there.
  2. Ask the venue what color linens they have.  Most of the time, they have a variety of colors that you can choose from so you don’t need to rent linen.  Renting can be a little costly. 
  3. Vases…you can never have enough vases.  They can go on your registration table and even incorporate them into your buffets.
  4. Talk to the chef.  They always love to talk to clients and want to get more creative with their food.  Tell them the colors that you are wanting to incorporate into the entree or dessert.  The impact a dessert has is huge – so take advantage of this easy branding opportunity.
  5. Don’t forget the bathrooms.  They can always use a little love and it’s easy to add a little something something there.  I personally like to bring in my own soap.  Method comes in an array of colors and they smell really good.  Also, add some florals to the bathroom and throw in some of the oil diffusers to make things smell great. 
  6. Wondering what to do with centerpieces? I understand that not everyone had the budget to create amazing floral arrangements so why not mix it up.  There aren’t any rules that say that each table must look the same.  Intermix florals, small plants and votives that incorporate the colors that you are wanting.  This makes the space more interesting and not as uniform.
  7. Candy…I know candy?  Yes.  Purchase color specific wrapped candy from your local Target or drug store.  This is an easy way to bring color into your meeting space and your guest will enjoy it.

Make sure you talk with the venue.  If they don’t know what you are going for, they won’t be able to lend their creative expertise.  Also, keep in mind that you can do this same thing with a particular theme.  Happy Planning!
