Pretty in Pink and Green…Freshen up your Shavuos Wardrobe

Shavuos is upon us and flowers are on my mind. I think flowers are just one of the most fabulous gifts Hashem bestowed upon us. Not much else comes close to their natural colors and beauty,  and the endless ways they can be put together just multiplies their potential for gorgeousness. And what better Yom Tov is there than Shavuos to really focus on setting your table using the brightest most glorious flowers, fruit and other items in the most creative ways.

Recently, I was involved in the planning and design of our local Hatzolah Ladies Event and the colors pink and green were part of our concept from the beginning. (Thank you Adina Melcer for that fabulous vision!) Since then I have been dreaming about using them for my next creative project: my Shavuos table. And then I thought, how about using these stunning colors to freshen up a summer wardrobe too?

So here are some photos of the many ways flowers in these colorways can enhance your Yom Tov table, and afterward, a compilation of a fresh and wearable wardrobe in shades of pink and green.

Don’t believe you can wear the two colors combined?? Check it out and you will be inspired to try!

Don't be afraid to mix several shades of pink together, make it look like you mismatched on purpose. Accent with green accessories, as green is actually considered a neutral color and naturally compliments pink. White is also great with pink, and will especially cool down a more vibrant tone.
