Wedding Design & Decor Moss and grass accents in varying shades of green are a natural ombre compliment to Emerald.  Brides can incorporate crisp white linens and wooden farm tables to create a fresh and earthy table design with Emerald design accents.  Silver and wrought iron centerpieces and furniture add a modern vibe to Emerald table designs as well.
Another great option to incorporate Emerald into your wedding is to pull from the natural complimentary colors in a peacock feather.  The beautiful green, blue and purple jewel tones make for a stunning and sophisticated color palette.
