A couple weeks ago PANTONE released their 2013 Fall Color Predictions and we’ve already seen them incorporated in this season’s events! Here are some beautiful color combinations that are making their way into events across the country as the weather turns colder.

Although green is a popular color choice for spring and summer events, three different shades are on the palette for fall. From Linden Green to Deep Lichen Green to the 2013 Color of the Year, Emerald, you can expect to see these options in your color palettes for events through October.

Mykonos Blue carries inspiration from across the world in the Greek isles where the island of Mykonos boasts signature painted blue doors and domes. The color is bold and adds brightness to traditional blue palettes.
