Glorious Green
With more and more people choosing the eco option it's never been a better time to go green. Green, white and silver make such a clean, crisp statement for any party. Fresh is the name of the game when the palette is green; there are so many ways you can use this colour to great effect. Obviously flowers are a great place to start. By mixing foliage with your blooms you'll create an eco-inspired wonderland. Bridesmaids will always look dashing in green as will groomsmen with crisp white shirts and swish green ties.

Back in Issue 5 of Style Guide we ran with green to create the eco-friendly story Going Green. We incorporated green into every aspect of the story. Designers Guild 'Kashima' wallpaper was used as a table runner, which adds instant colour to any table. The pattern from the wallpaper was then transferred to the glorious Cake Stories cake with great effect. Wheat grass potts were used as placecard holders, while disposable bamboo crockery and cutlery was a super-duper eco-friendly option. The Going Green stationery featured in the story can be bought at our online store. Make your contribution to the future of our beautiful planet and go green!
