Pantone color of the year: living coral

In case you haven’t heard… Pantone came out with this year’s color of the year and marked “living coral” as the “it” color of 2019. We love coral. We especially love how you can pair it with just about any color scheme and within any season.

We love the living coral color so much, we decided to put together four different looks for you to show you just how you can incorporate this color into your winter, spring, summer OR fall wedding or event.

Special thanks to our UH-mazing vendor squad: Jerry Hayes Photography, The Flower Studio and Westwood Country Club. We couldn’t have pulled off such beautiful looks without each of you!

Check out the pictures below!


Winter: For our winter table, we decided to use our Midnight Haiku linen as the base. We love how this linen almost has a “bare tree” look to it and felt this design added to the wintry look of the table. We paired the linen with our Da Vinci chairs to give it that deep, warm winter look.

For our table top, we used our charcoal heirloom buffet plate with our Venice dinner plate. We paired the black chargers with our black Ariana goblet, black midnight martini glass and brushed black lucca faceted flatware. Using these dark details added to the overall deep and moody winter feel. We finished the look with a saffron brushed satin napkin wrapped in our ivory cottonique napkin.

The napkin and the centerpiece added the perfect touch of the living coral color to this winter table, don’t you think?



Spring: We decided on the ever popular “gen z yellow” for our Spring centerpiece. We love this color for any season, but we especially love how it paired with our Pantone Spring decor.

We wanted to bring the outside in with this table, so we used a standard round table with a glass topper. Underneath the glass, The Flower Studio placed moss and floral touches to give the table that “outdoor” look. Wouldn’t you feel like you’re eating in a forest at this table?!

We used a saffron brushed satin linen paired with white chiavari chairs. The white chiavari chairs played off of the centerpiece perfectly and the saffron linen gave us that living coral look!

For the tabletop, we used our cabernet wine glass, excalibur iced tea glass and brushed gold capri flatware. We used our clear glass charger with a gold band to bring in the gold from the flatware and continued that with our gold line dinner plate. The hunter green velvet napkins gave the table more texture and played off of the moss tones underneath perfectly.



Summer: For our summer table, we wanted to do something light and bright. Our new contemporary mirror table was the perfect table for this design (standby,  it will be on the website soon)! We paired the contemporary table with our ghost chairs with arms.

For the table top, we opted for a modern marble coupe dinner and salad plate, brushed gold capri flatware, our blue lido goblet and our green Ariana goblet. We decided to use two different napkins for this look- our peapod hemstitch napkin underneath the dinner plate and our saffron brushed satin napkin underneath the salad plate.

For the centerpiece, The Flower Studio used vases in different heights with floating candles and small floral touches down the center. This gave the table such a romantic feel with the candles reflecting in the mirrored top of the table.



Fall: We went for a classic look for our Fall table with touches of living coral in the floral design and the chargers.

We used our champagne bently linen with our gray dust louis chairs. For our table top, we decided on our blush beaded glass charger, which helped pick up those Pantone living coral tones, our linen heirloom dinner and salad plates and our brushed black capri flatware. To give the table that classic, vintage look, we paired each place settings with our portico crystal iced tea glass and our melodia crystal wine glass. To finish this look, we used two napkins held together by a wooden napkin ring: our sand brushed satin napkin and our blush matte satin napkin.

For the centerpiece, The Flower Studio used roses in living coral and pampas grass details. The height of the centerpiece really gives this table a grand feeling that we just love! What do you think?


As you can see, there are many ways to incorporate Pantone’s living coral color of the year into your next event or wedding. We hope these examples got those design juices flowing!

We’d love to help put your next look together whenever you’re ready. Just stop by one of our showrooms and we’ll get to designing together!
