Palm Beach Chic!

Palm Beach Chic!

January 5, 2017 by Deb Skelton

As we turn the corner for a new year, it's timely to share the upcoming style trends in both Australia and Europe for weddings and events for 2017.

With the release late last year of the 2017 spring Pantone colour 'Greenery', it seems there's been a revival of the bold retro Palm Beach chic style. You will know it, you may have even lived through it, yep you got it - bamboo leaves, palm trees, umbrellas, greenery and rattan - the whole kit and kaboodle.

The other style that continues to shine and is on the up, is anything luxe - gold, glittery, sparkly with a touch of deco, similar to the Gatsby style. The vintage and delicate woodland look that's been so popular over the last few years is waning, although many brides continue to request cakes that reflect this style as it's pretty and goes back with soft, delicate fabrics and pastels. While brides, event managers and caterers are all pushing for new and interesting design it is not at all unusual for the industry to slip back into design that is grounded in style and simplicity. Sometimes it may just be a hint or a nod to these styles and that can be incorporated into a new decor. With today's technology these hints can be added to any presentation including more recently cakes for all occasions incorporating style ideas including swatches of fabric design and even shoe colour. Alternatively you may have other design ideas you would like to share maybe it's our very own Tuross Head chic. Deb Skelton owns Red Box Pantry
