Pantone 2021 Color of the Year Pairings

The Pantone Color Institute’s yearly announcement of the “Color of the Year” has been an inspiration for many home decorations, party trends and wedding looks. For this year, the union of gray and yellow is said to be the perfect symbol of strength and hope. Something that we definitely need for the year 2021! As we plan for upcoming parties or weddings, this color combination is believed to be enduring and uplifting. To make everything brighter, we put together tons of decorating ideas using the Pantone Color of the Year. Keep on reading and find out which of these match your theme!

Party Decorations 

Any party will be a whole lot of fun with adorable gray and yellow party decorations. If you are celebrating your birthday, make sure to set up a cheerful “Happy Birthday” banner with yellow with gray letters. For your dessert station or dining tables, cute and playful strands of curly taffeta table skirts will make an enticing setting. Top it with yellow balloons or paper pom-poms for a charming tablescape.

Don't forget essentials like tableware and charger plates! Gold trimmed chargers with gray or silver plates will be perfect for your table setting while paper cups and striped paper straws will be a great addition to your drink station. Add a pop of color to your party decor with eye-catching wall backdrops. Decorate with yellow wall paper fans, silk flower garlands or more party balloons for a truly festive atmosphere.

Lastly, don’t forget your cake! Grey and yellow just look awesome together. Having a cake with both colors will be an unexpected delight for your guests!

Pantone Color of the Year Inspired Weddings 

Planning a wedding involves a lot of decision-making. You start thinking of the perfect date, venue, guest lists, theme and more. You will also begin to spend on things you will need for the big day such as the dresses, flowers and wedding decorations. Every couple wants their big day to be beautiful! To make it happen, we think that it's important that you find the perfect wedding colors for your special day. A lot of trending colors will be out there. Some brides may consider the most popular ones or whatever color will fit the season. Going for the Pantone color of the year color pairing may be the perfect choice!

Start with creating a positive atmosphere for your wedding ceremony. Can you already imagine walking down the aisle with bright yellow flowers around and you wearing a white dress while holding on a gorgeous yellow bouquet? It will be a walk to remember! Yellow bouquets will look more promising when accented with gray ribbons. Picture your bridal party wearing gray dresses and your partner wearing a soft gray suit with a yellow bow tie and small flower corsage. Yellow silk flowers such as mini roses, sunflowers, tulips, lilies, daisies, or chrysanthemums are a great way to carry out your theme. A perfect way to brighten things up!

For your reception, gray tablecloths with yellow monogram letters will look great together. They are also a perfect match for your yellow napkins on top of white plates and metallic cutlery. Or to make it more illuminating, you can also use your gray napkins accented with metallic gold napkin rings. If you have a designated table for your desserts or favors, you can decorate it with elegant centerpieces. Why not try a silver light gray Eiffel tower to make it more unique and romantic? And for your small favors, you can put them in simple yet elegant gray favor boxes.

Add Colors to Your Home 

Since these two colors are beautifully balanced, they will also be a great addition to home decorations. Color trends keep on updating so the best way to incorporate Pantone colors is with accessories that are inexpensive and can be easily swapped out.

What we mean is that you don't actually need to paint your wall just to have that color of strength and positivity in your home. You can use yellow curtains, flowers and silver or light gray LED tealight candles for an inviting ambiance in your living room. Use yellow bed sheets for a warm cozy feel in your bedroom. The kitchen table can be covered with yellow linens topped with grayish placemats. Gray cushions or seat covers can be added to your dining chairs to add comfort and complete the look.

These hues will just simply create an outstanding personality for your home, living room or kitchen!
