The freshest color of the season is Pantone’s color of 2019: Living Coral. This tropical shade works best with outdoor weddings and especially if you’re going for a beach-inspired theme. While you’ll be rocking Living Coral in your flowers and bridesmaid dresses, you might be stumped for what to do about your decor. Avoid the impulse to cover every surface in your main color. Instead, pick wedding decor that complements your living coral wedding and gives some seriously tropical vibes. If you’re having trouble picturing it, we’ve compiled some of our favorite items that will look chic and elegant on your reception tables.
1. Coral Place Card Holders
Why not embrace the coral theme in more than just color? Greet guests with these authentic-looking coral place card holders. They’re made of resin and come in a variety of fun coral shapes. Let guests know they can take them home after the wedding and use them as beachy photo holders.
2. Gold Lanterns
Skip the boring plain glass candle holders and pick reception table lighting that works well for a beach, tropical, or nautical theme. Fill these gold lanterns with tea lights for romantic lighting while guests eat their dinners or toast to the happy couple. After the wedding, you can reuse them around your house or outdoor patio.
3. Vintage Blue Glass Vase
Complementary colors play off your main shade and add dimension to your wedding theme. Break up the Living Coral with these blue glass tealight holders. They provide a delicate vintage look for those who love retro glam. Use them to prop up coral-colored roses or pop a votive candle in there for more romantic lighting options.
4. Pineapple Bottle Openers
The beachy theme even extends to the party favors. Hand out these pineapple bottle openers to guests so they have a useful item to commemorate the big event. The handle is shaped like a chic gold pineapple. Cute! Tie them to each napkin or beer bottle to go above and beyond.
5. Geometric Planters
Speaking of chic, these white geometric planters are the epitome of elegance. If you’re skipping flowers for centerpieces and want to use succulents instead, these are the perfect planters. Place a handful on every table and let guests pick their favorite one for another fun party favor.
6. Stemless Champagne Glasses
Of course, guests will need champagne flutes to raise high when it’s time for toasts. Hand out these stemless champagne glasses. Personalize them with the couple’s names and the date of the wedding in the color turquoise for a lovely take-home gift that also compliments your wedding color scheme.
7. Knife and Cake Server Set
