Color Scheme Inspiration – Giant Thanksgiving Parade Balloons
In honor of Thanksgiving in the United States, we’ve put together a very special (questionably) inspired color scheme inspiration.
Our non-US readers might be wondering what giant balloons has to do with memorializing the pilgrims. For over 75 years, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade through New York City has been an annual Thanksgiving morning event. Even though it doesn’t have much to do with the founding of our country, we’ve come to love it anyway. Besides, this isn’t a history blog.
This round of color palettes was inspired by one of the parade’s favorites — the giant balloon characters. Over the years, there have been a number of interesting characters to float over the city streets. As you’ll see below, it often takes entire armies of people just to keep the balloons under control. Inspiration comes from weird places, and this is just another great example.
Photos are all found via Flickr (follow image links for author info). Color schemes are available to download through COLOURlovers.
Palettes from Giant Balloon Characters
That does it for this round of color inspiration. Once again, if you are inspired to make your own balloon centered pallette, we’d love to see you share it with our official Colourlovers group for Build Internet! readers. Go ahead and inspire us!
