PANTONE IS RINGING in the New Year with the announcement of Peach Fuzz as the shade of 2024. Officially called “Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz,” the pinkish-orange hue is “velvety,” “gentle” and “subtly sensual,” according to the design and color authority. Get peachy with this assortment of Houston eats, drinks and accessories to celebrate fashionably.

Grab a slice of this year’s color with specialty gourmet cakes from the go-to in Rice Village. Custom cakes are available in a variety of sizes and each is one-of-a-kind, like Badolina’s intricate Raspberry Rose cake. Individual desserts including the exquisite Pistachio and Guava Labneh Halva offer guests a way to indulge in a little peach-tinted decadence.
Balboa Surf Club
The menu at this still-new spot near The Galleria is peachy keen with many health-forward eats. Nosh on the Patagonian inside-out salmon sushi roll with green apple and ginger; a Baja seafood cocktail; and Jumbo Louie with Maryland crab, Gulf shrimp and Louie sauce.

Or lighten up the mantle with a soft peach elephant picture frame and add a pop of color to the dining room with metropolitan rose napkin rings.
Cluster ring at Zadok
