How to spend a day at Village on the Parkway

Pretty Pantone trend for Mother’s Day Gifts

Thanks to Pantone, the latest color trend evokes tranquility which is perfect for Mother's Day gifts. The Pantone Color Institute's announcement of not one but two colors for their Pantone Color of the Year was unprecedented this year.

But here's a gallery below to get inspired and add a little zen and bliss in Mother's Day gifts!
