Incorporating the Pantone Color of the Year into Your Event

| by EventWorks

Each year we look forward to hearing the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year, as it helps inspire and shape event colors. We absolutely loved the Color of the Year for 2017 – Greenery – but we were thrilled to learn Ultra Violet was the color selected for 2018! While we will always incorporate neutrals and Earth tones into our designs, we’re loving that Ultra Violet signifies that bold uses of color in event space designs are back.

Defined as “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” Ultra Violet “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

EventWorks has several options for how to use our rentals to showcase Violet at your event this year!

Purple Pintuck Linen


We have five styles of linens available to rent, all with different shades, sheens and textures. From lighter lilacs to deep eggplants, we have a plethora of purples to select from. One of our favorites is the Krinkle Violet – with a textured, reflective look and feel, this linen is perfect for an elegant affair.

Vintage Violet China


One of our favorite patterns of China that we carry is the Vintage line. It comes in four beautiful, different colors, one of which being Violet! Ideal for a spring or fall event – our Vintage Violet plates are subtle in color, but make a table pop once set. We have the Vintage Violet available in a B&B plate, Salad plate, Dinner plate and Charger.

A few other fun ways to add a hit of Violet to your event:

  • Sash your cocktail tables with a shade of Violet to add a pop of color
  • Preset a Violet napkin at place settings
  • Use Violet gels with our Can Up Lights at your event to add color reflections on the wall
