I know you have been waiting for it and maybe the weather isn’t showing it yet, but tomorrow is the official start of spring! It’s been a long cold winter for much of the US so I bet many of you are ready for springtime (and spring flowers) to hit!
With the coming of spring, I always like to look to Pantone’s pick of spring colors for inspiration. This year it’s a soft palette of cooler hues with just a few warm tones to balance things out. The en plein air theme is so fitting for a season that is associated with rebirth and regrowth in nature.
Of course Pantone’s color of the year, Marsala, is included in the mix and it pairs beautifully with the other colors in this spring palette. Using this for inspiration, we’ve put together a selection of flowers and greens inspired by these beautiful Pantone colors.

It’s amazing that there are even flowers and greens that are naturally similar to some of the Pantone colors like Classic Blue, Toasted Almond and Glacier Gray. Nature really does provide us with a bounty of colors! I hope this inspires you to come up with your own mix of favorite flowers and colors – whether you’re planning a wedding or event or just want to treat yourself to some blooms for your home.
