Spring is all about celebrating nature’s awakening, so why not embrace it with bows in bold yellows, bright oranges, and very saturated purples? These bright shades will instantly catch the eye and bring a cheerful and energetic vibe to your creations. This coming year we are foreseeing many bright and vibrant colors on trend for every season and holiday, even Halloween and Christmas.
If you prefer a more earthy and natural feel, opt for bows in earthy tones. Think of light browns, soft creams, and even mossy greens to create a sense of grounding and tranquility. These colors can be paired with floral prints or bright hues for a unique and sophisticated combination. Burlap and jute are always a great natural go to when you are struggling to find a simplistic ribbon.

To add depth and texture to your bows
Try mixing different textured ribbons. Combine a smooth satin ribbon with a grosgrain or velvet ribbon to create a visually interesting and tactile bow. The contrast between the different textures will make your bow stand out and add a luxurious touch to any project. Our favorite velvets for using year round, even spring, are Farrisilk ribbons. You can find Farrisilk wired ribbons in the Greenery market shop. Have you ever tried making a monochromatic bow, all the same colors, but different textured choices?

For those who dare to be bold, mixing patterns AND textures can create a unique and eye-catching bow. Pair a striped velvet ribbon, a polka dot satin, a chunky glittered solid, and a gingham canvas ribbon for an over the top, higher end, playful and whimsical look. The key is to choose patterns that have complementary colors or similar design elements. This way, the patterns will harmonize and create a cohesive and visually pleasing bow.

To add a another touch of glamour and sophistication to your bows, don’t forget to incorporate metallic touches.
