Definition of Ombré: Colors or tones that blend into one another — for example, you'll often see this technique used in fabrics where dye colors fade in a graduated fashion from light to dark.
Here's a few of my favorite ways to incorporate ombré into your party styling.
- Ombré floral design » Create a gradient effect by blending florals together.
- Ombré wedding cake » Why not opt for an ombré cake? Each tier could be a different shade!
- Ombré bridesmaid dresses » Each dress could be a different shade within one color umbrella. For instance, blue, light blue, dusty teal, mint...
- Ombré stationery suite » A lot of watercolor styles offer a natural ombré effect!
