Hi! I'm Tara Wilson, designer for Tara Wilson Events. Today we're going to be talking about color combinations for every season. When I design an event, I try and think about the colors that are natural to the time of year that the event will take place. So for instance if we're talking about summer, you really want to think about bright, vibrant colors that you might find out in nature. Some of the things that I really like to look at are primary colors for the summertime. If we were talking about fall, you would think more of muted colors. Perhaps dark chocolate and oranges, tans, maybe even deep burgundy colors. You want to think about what you would normally find during that season. For wintertime, think of crisp tones that you might find during the winter. Perhaps grays, silvers, whites, bright reds, maybe even some majestic blues. And then when you're thinking of springtime, I happen to think a pastel colors. Pinks, baby blues, light lilacs, things of that nature. So think about what you would find during that season as you're crafting your color pallet for your event. Another way to get great inspiration for picking out colors is maybe go visit your local floral wholesaler. Look at the flowers that they have and what colors are in season then. Look at how those combinations play together. Such as when you see bright, vibrant yellow sunflowers, they're often coupled with something really green and lush. Think about those kinds of color combinations as well. Another way to figure out some great color combinations is to go to your local paint store and look at all of their paint chips. It's really a great way to get an idea of the sense of colors that are available to you. Even if you don't have to paint anything, it's really just a great launching point for your creativity. Some of the other things that I like to do is visit with other designers and look at the fabrics that they offer. Find out what table cloth colors are available to you for your event. Maybe that's a great way to start building your color palette. These are just some wonderful examples of ways that you can build a color palette, colors for every season.
