Pantone Color of the Year Perfect For Valentines Day 2011

The official color of 2011 is honeysuckle pink, which is fantastic news for florists and flower lovers! The luscious reddish-pink is available in many varieties of flowers, and looks great paired with almost any style.

Pantone Color of the Year — Honeysuckle PinkPantone has been the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries for over 50 years. (If you’ve ever worked in print media, or other design occupations, you definitely know Pantone!) Their color of the year program started in 2000, but it seems only recently to have hit the masses. The official color of 2010, turquoise, was a spot-on choice. Only time will tell if honeysuckle pink will be as popular, but so far so good!

Since Valentines Day is coming up, think of how to incorporate honeysuckle pink into your Valentine’s Day flowers. You might choose to send a bouquet of pink roses, or a mixture of flowers featuring the popular pink. The best thing about the color is it’s ability to work with any style or color.

According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues. Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”

Sounds like exactly what we need to pull ourselves out of a long, cold winter! So, when you are trying to decide on what flowers to send your sweetie, why not use the color of the year as a little inspiration. Here are a few Valentines Day flower arrangements to get you started:
