Green with Envy

Make your friends envious of your amazing event and use the not so common color, green. Green is rarely incorporated into themes of weddings but this color represents more than greed and envy. Green actually symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and peace which are all important characteristics for a good marriage. At Stephanie and Mikes wedding at Tribecca Rooftop, green was the accent chosen to bring the outdoors in. We also include crisp white to balance the vibrant green.

This fabulous color scheme of this wedding stayed consistent allowing from everything from the save the dates to thank you cards to include this unique, green detail. The invitations were a special touch because they were actually done by one of the bridesmaids, Talia. The gorgeous flower arrangements at this wedding were done by Rountree Flowers.

For weddings with a lot of out of town guests it is great to incorporate this exciting city into your wedding. Plus your guests will definitely appreciate the thoughtful gesture. This grand center piece for the escort card table was the perfect way to bring nature into the this industrial space. Our biggest tip is don't be afraid to go bold on your big day! Taking risks can pay off big in the end.

Red Light, Green Light, 1, 2, 3!

Pink Monkey also loves red! After all, the monkey does love color. Red can be used for any occasion for both genders at any age. Whether it is a 1st, 2nd, 3rd  birthday or other life cycle event, red can work perfectly. We do love red for children’s birthdays as seen in the photos below. For this party we included simple white tying in the colorful candy and gingham pattern. We love to bring the outdoors in so we included grass in the baskets holding up the yummy lollipop favors. This grass matched the bright green daisy stems exposed in the clear vases holding the flower arrangements. This fun theme delighted children and adults alike. Everyone loves candy no matter the age. Getting candy in some cool candy favors are always a success! Vibrant colors such as red and tasty treats can make any party fun for both the children and the adult guests.
