Party Decorating Trends For Spring and Summer 2012

Trend Spotting For Spring and Summer 2012: Rainbow Multi and Mixing Pastels With Neon and Metallics

We're excited to present a trendspotting post from Alana and Sara, designers behind the chic Australian party goods and stationery company Poppies For Grace.

Rainbow Multi

Poppies For Grace creates rainbow button envelopes and confetti bags, and tissue balls. We see this trend in fashion event decorations, stationery, upholstery, and almost everywhere we turn. We started producing the multi colored envelope packs around the same time as Japanese washi tape was becoming hugely popular in Australia.

We think this is the perfect time in color history for us, as we love to wear brights. That means there is an abundance of choices, which is something we haven’t seen before.

Our color choices take inspiration from floristry art. The perfect bright bouquets get us very excited! Nature has always been the key inspiration in our designs as we look forward to Spring each year, and keep the Spring feel alive in our studio year round with bright colors.

Having children has also heightened our love of color. We want their children to be surrounded by color, which symbolically represents celebration, glee, merriment, joy, and extravagance.

Pastels, Neon, Metallic

These combinations are the pairing of great friends. Two are loud and totally extraverted, while the other is quieter and softer. While they are different, all are full of beauty and bring different elements to decoration.

Confetti System got this party started with their beautiful garlands. Poppies For Grace is about to release a print entitled 'Hope" in gold. The print features sweet wooden animals, which are sparkly and rich.

Thanks ladies! We're wondering, what are our readers seeing as Spring and Summer trends?
