Living Coral is Pantone 2019 Color of the Year and it’s a beautiful color choice for weddings, bridal showers, parties, and even home decor! The decorating possibilities are endless with such a warm and inviting color but you may be asking yourself, how do I actually use it? If you find yourself loving the coral trend, here are a few color combinations you can try for your decorations.
Navy Blue + Coral
These two colors are very striking and it can be a bold color choice so think about adding bits of blush or warmer tones like peach, ivory or sand as a secondary accent. Use navy blue runners or tablecloths on your event tables with coral napkins. For chair decor, satin navy blue chair sashes with chair cushions will help you complete the look. For bouquets, pair coral with blush pink flowers and accent with a wide navy blue ribbon. If navy blue is not your favorite, you can try serenity blue for a softer combination along with a gray accent color.

Lavender + Coral
One of the more unique pairings, coral and lavender with a pink or ivory accent color will look absolutely gorgeous if you’re looking for a romantic pastel color combination. The secondary color can also be eggplant purple, if you want a more vibrant look or peach, if you want to bring out the warm tones of the coral. Accent your table with lavender table runners or overlays and create a gorgeous centerpiece with lavender flowers or select a custom coral corsage for your wedding party. For outdoor events, don't forget the favor fans so your guest can stay cool. You can also use amethyst instead for a unique look that’s perfect for any event!
