It’s a brand new year and a brand new #CoffeeWithCalluna! We love sharing some tips and tricks of the industry. Because we love to share the love, each week we’ll answer questions from YOU
1.I love the blush and neutral color palate, but am afraid that it’s been done a lot. What’s a unique twist to the neutral palette that keeps it fresh and interesting?
We love this question! As much as we love the blush and neutral palate, (it’s oh-so-timeless), we are wanting to see some variety this year. One thing we are suggesting with our brides is to incorporate one or two pops of color into the neutrals. Perhaps a peach or coral, a green or blue. This year the Pantone Color of the Year is Greenery, so along with greenery a pop of color into a blush palate is a way to add a unique touch. It could be in your bridesmaid dresses, in your linens, paper goods, or in the florals themselves. However you do it just make sure the color stays true to your personality and goes with your venue!
2. What are some gift ideas for your bridesmaids other than jewelry?
We love gifting. Next to coffee and weddings, it’s our favorite! Jewelry is always a great idea but if you’re wanting to switch it up a little, we have a few alternative ideas.
- A getting ready robe is a great option for your bridal party. It also makes for some pretty adorable photos. One of our favorites – Plum Pretty Sugar. They just launched a gorgeous line of dresses and robes that are perfect!
- A spa day in a box. Let’s be real, a bridesmaid’s job can sometimes be tough! What better way to thank your best gals than a little relaxation for all of their hard work and support. A few favorites – this Pamper box from BoxFox, this Spa Day box from Teak & Twine, or this Make it a Spa Day box from Kismet Crafted.
- A bottle of bubbly and a personalized glass. We love ourselves a little brunch and love when brides opt for a sweet getting ready brunch. Gift your ‘maids with a custom brunch glass, a bottle of bubbly and an assortment of juices for all to enjoy.
