Pantone Color Report Fall 2018
We get so giddy with the thought of Fall… Especially when us Floridians spend most of the year on the surface of the sun. Yes we’re being dramatic, but it’s also somewhat true. One of the things we love most about Fall are the color palettes, because at the base of every great design is a perfectly matched color scheme!
In this blog, we’re serving up some Fall color palette inspiration along with the intention behind each hue.
If you’ve been around the block, you know that each year Pantone releases their top picks for seasonal colors. This momentous occasion could definitely be considered the event industry’s NFL/NBA draft.
It’s so exciting to see what colors we may get to play with throughout the year, as they catch the eyes of our clients.
Institute Press characterized Pantone’s picks for Fall 2018 as: “Autumnal hues that evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colorful surprise.” Now that sounds like a romance novel- so color us ready for a stroll through the forest.
While this doesn’t look like a “traditional Fall color palette” we love its opportunity for unique looks. After all, self-expression is always in style!
Red Pear: Deliciously deep red, whose luscious depth entices.
Valiant Poppy: Brave and outgoing red shade effusive in its allure.
Nebulas Blue: Reminiscent of twilight, a thoughtful, starry-eyed blue.
Ceylon Yellow: Savory and spicy yellow adds an exotic touch.
Martini Olive: Smooth, sophisticated and urbane green adds depth to the Fall/Winter 2018 palette.
Russet Orange: This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.
Ultra Violet (Color of the year!): Inventive and imaginative Ultra Violet lights the way for what is yet to come.
Crocus Petal: A cultivated and refined hue adds a light and airy spring-like feeling demand.
Limelight: Animated and effervescent, a pungent yellow-green becomes the center of attention.
Quetzal Green (Our personal fav!): A deep elegant blue-green hue suggestive of rich plumage.
A Modern Bohemian [Rhapsody]
We’ve got modern bohemian vibes on the brain!
Recently, we took part in a modern bohemian wedding inspiration photoshoot at the gorgeous Art & History Museum- Maitland. This venue is jam-packed with old-world charm and Mayan Revival architecture from the 1940’s. Melanie Paige Events was inspired by the grounds, and transformed the Chapel and Courtyard space into a modern-boho dream!
Bohemian design meets acrylic details with this ceremony and reception set up. Our ghost chairs have a weightlessness to them, allowing the architecture to speak for itself, while creating a modern & cool effect. For the tablescape, our 8ft acrylic table kept things from appearing heavy as it was adorned with floral and geometric charger plates from Treasury Rentals. Our ghost chairs were transitioned from the ceremony space to the mock reception, keeping a consistent look.
To infinity and beyond!
We are absolutely in love with how our Infinity arch was transformed! While it’s beautiful on its own, we can’t help but be obsessed with the hanging pieces and statement floral.
And can we talk about the dress for a moment?! The fringe, wow. The crochet / lace detailing, WOW. Stunning!
Boho vibes aren’t all teepee’s and deserts. You can truly make this design style you’re own- especially being in Florida, where there are no deserts… obviously. We love the idea of mixing in modern details because it’s like you’re getting the best of both worlds! The key to a bohemian [rhapsody] is a care-free attitude and some fringe (which never hurt anyone!).

For this week’s Trendy Vendy, we have the pleasure of featuring Sheena of Dishie Rentals! An NYC native who found her “heart & home in the south,” Sheena joined Dishie in 2012 but truth be told Dishie Rentals is more than a business, it’s a passion! A passion for authentic celebrations, community, and creativity. Her mission is to “encourage celebrations of life through gathering at tables beautifully curated with pieces reflective of the unique heart and character of each party host.”
Since 2012, Dishie has worked with several local vendors and has been published in numerous publications! It’s not hard to see why! Her personal story is reflected in the pieces she offers to clients, so you know you’re getting a little piece of “heart & home” in your tablescape. Read more about Sheena & Dishie Rentals, below!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got your start!
Hoarding beautiful tableware is in my blood! I always remember staring at (and wanting to play with) my mom’s pretty china. I built my own collection of vintage thrifted china as an adult, but our newlywed home was too small to fit all of our gifted wedding tableware, so I donated my collection to appease my new hubby. When a friend from college shared she was looking for a new owner for her company, Dishie Rentals, a dream bloomed in my heart. We met and it was the perfect fit! And I got my collection back ten-fold!
My husband and I are passionate about building an intimate community through consistently sharing meals with others, and I believe every good celebration starts at the table! Dishie is my outward expression of my deep gratitude for every day we are given. It’s my joy to create beautiful tablescapes to help others authentically celebrate all of life’s special moments.
What services do you offer?
Dishie Rentals has a large collection of curated boho, southern, and vintage tableware available to rent for any wedding or special event. Our collection includes large quantities of vintage glassware in every color, mismatched vintage china, tea cups & settings, chargers, and modern and vintage flatware collections.
We provide delivery and washing, and also offer complimentary tablescape design and set-up services for all of our rentals. This fall we are launching Dishie Shoppe, a curated collection of Dishie faves that you can purchase and have in your very own home! My clients always ask if my inventory can go home with them so creating the Shoppe seemed like a good fit. We’re excited!
What can we find at Dishie Rentals?
Tableware Heaven! We have a capacity to serve up to 500 people with our collection of mismatched vintage china & glassware – whether you are a boho bride or Southern belle we have something for your heart’s desire!
What inspired the pieces you selected for Dishie Rentals?
Heritage & Heart. My husband once made me a special dinner and set the table using my favorite tableware, decorated it with my favorite flowers, lit my favorite candle, and served me my favorite food. Everything was perfect, the table was so pretty, and I just felt so special – I want every one of our dinner guests to feel like that. I want them to feel like out of the hundreds of people these vintage plates have served, they are the most special one.
How do you keep up with the latest wedding trends?
Dishie is all about mixing and matching, and I love adding modern, trendy pieces like flatware or chargers to our vintage collection. Our luxe rose gold flatware has beautiful modern lines and looks gorgeous next to our china.
What sets you apart from others?
My team at Dishie believes that every celebration is really just a display of gratitude towards your attendees for the special place they hold in your life. We love engaging with brides and party hosts of all budgets to uniquely help them create tables reflective of their heart and character.
What advice would you give couples during the wedding design/planning process?
I love the quote, “The heart of hospitality is when people leave your home feeling better about themselves, not better about you.”
Remember that your wedding is really the first dinner party that you and your husband get to host together! Look at your budget and decide what the most important pieces will be to help you celebrate with your guests and thank them for sharing with you in such a special moment of your lives, and then spend your money and time on that.
What’s your favorite Dishie product?
Oh my stars, don’t ask me to choose! I LOVE our vintage champagne coupe collection. I just feel like a girl at one of Jay Gatsby’s parties when I drink out of one! I am also obsessed with our luxe flatware collection. It’s so sleek and the flatware is such a nice, heavy weight.
When you’re not helping clients, what can we find you doing?
Honestly, most likely tracking Hot Wheels tire marks into my sofa alongside my toddler, or dragging said toddler and my hubby throughout Disney! #boymom #disneyfanatic
Fun Facts About You:
I have a degree in Classical Humanities (Ancient Art, Culture & Philosophy) and Nonprofit Management. On the DL, I’m working to create a give back component to my business at Dishie and couldn’t be more excited about it.
I live in Winter Garden and am pretty obsessed. I just love my little town and I think everyone else should too!
I am also obsessed with our springer-cocker spaniel mix name Lady (yes, like the movie). She mostly chases bubbles and butterflies, sleeps in the sun, and snuggles with our family – she is my spirit animal.
I saw a quote on social media recently that said “Every pizza can be a personal pizza if you just believe in yourself” and I think I’m going to make it my new mantra for life.
