Tangerine Tango was Pantone's Color of the Year for 2012 and it is still hanging around as one of this years spring go to's. As spring is winding down tangerine is a great introduction to summer. It pairs nicely with soft pastels and blush tones that are so common at this time of year. We really like the idea of using the color in literal terms and adding pieces of fruit to arrangements or place settings. Tangerines or even kumquats, which are much smaller, would look incredible amongst lush florals. Carve out an opening for a tea light or slice the fruit open for more added interest and texture and you can also enjoy the fresh citrus aroma.
