April showers bring May flowers, as the saying goes.
I used to think that referred to the weather. But now that I’m in my 30s and everybody I know is making a big life decision, I’m thinking that it’s actually a shout out to the millions of baby/wedding/engagement showers that happen in April and result in some sort of May floral arrangement.
Personally, my biggest life decision is deciding what color trend to follow, and Pantone’s Spring 2015 palette does not disappoint. If you are honored (read: stuck) throwing the new momma or future Mrs. a celebratory shower, take the Pantone color trends as a cue and make your space as beautiful as possible. For this post, I’ve selected the 5 most edible Pantone colors to provide some inspiration for what will surely be the chicest party on the shower circuit.
