Trending Tuesdays {Pinterested?}

Hey y'all, and welcome to the first ever Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch Trending Tuesday!  

From now on, every Tuesday we will be bringing you a brand new trending topic related to wedding planning, florals, foods, drinks.. Heck, who knows what awesomeness we will be bestowing upon you!  This weeks topic kind of comes from somewhere a little selfish..


I have been so stinkin' ready for spring since about December.  What better way to celebrate the beautiful warm weather than a COLOR Trending Tuesday Blog Post?

These inspiration boards were put together with images from My Pinterest Board.. Interested in finding out more info about them?  Then head on over!  Oh, and dear Pinterest followers.. I am so sorry for blowing up your feed with my pin happy trending topics earlier today.

As some of you may know, Pantone is pretty much the authority on all things color related.  So, in this blog post we will be looking at the Pantone Spring 2014 Top Wedding Colors.  The 2014 colors are so fun, and there is a little something for everyone - from the neutral tones to the bold yellows and purples.  I am getting excited just thinking about all of the gorgeous Barn Weddings that will be hitting this blog very soon!   We kick off our 2014 Wedding Season on Saturday, March 22nd!

Pantone 2014 Wedding Colors

Placid Blue... Soft, subtle and matches well with the more neutral tones that you will see further down in the blog post.  Whether it be paired with sand, paloma or even glittery silver - this baby blue hue is very easy on the eyes.

Hemlock... This years version of last year's "mint".  It was a pretty big staple in the wedding world last year, and it doesn't seem to be dying out anytime soon.  You know what this would go perfect with?  Glittery gold... 

Violet Tulip... Although I keep typing "violent tulip" this sweet hue is a must for Spring 2014! Match it with a few different shades of purples and viola!  Color Scheme Heaven... 

Paloma... I've never been much of a gray girl [unless it's 50 Shades of Grey.. steamy!], but it really is the perfect accent for so many other colors.  Cayenne, freesia, pale pink, silver, black.. Really the list goes on and on.  

Sand... Taupe, gold, tan.. Whatever you want to call it, it is still versatile, classy and elegant. Sparkle it up for a little bit of fancy or tone it down for a soft neutral tone.  Either way, those SAND dresses are gorgeous!

Freesia... I'm not going to lie, this one caught me a little by surprise.  I've never been a yellow fan. I don't look good in it, I don't own anything yellow and I never really had the desire to either. However.. THIS is not yellow.. This, ladies and gents, is Freesia and it is gorgeous! Bold, attention grabbing and screaming springtime... 

And those tasty looking macaroons don't hurt the cause one bit... 

Cayenne... This is one of my favorite wedding colors.  My bridesmaids actually wore a similar color in our June wedding.  It looks good on pretty much everyone, you can always find gorgeous flowers in the color scheme and it's bright but still romantic.. It looks great paired here with the Dazzling Blue!

Celosia Orange... So fun!  Pair it with a little cayenne, a hint of green, maybe a little paloma?  The options are limitless with this bright hue.

Radiant Orchid... This color pairs with just about anything as well.  Silver, gold, deeper purples, magenta, black.. You name a deeper base color, Radiant Orchid compliments it. However, I think it looks best in a pallet of different shades of purple.. It is such a fun vibrant color, don't ya think? Maybe that's why it's the Pantone 2014 Color of the Year and my favorite on this list!

If I was a rock star, the radiant orchid ombre hair would sooo be mine... Think I could pull it off?

And last but not least.. Dazzling Blue...


This color pretty much speaks for itself.. It's classy, fun, clean but not overly feminine.  Hats off to all you gents that rock pink on your wedding day, but ladies, this Dazzling Blue ain't so bad.. 

Be sure to catch us next Tuesday when we talk about signature wedding drinks!  

Mmm... Cocktails.

Until next time...
