Ultra Violet – Pantone 2018 Color of the Year


Pantone has released their new color of the year, and we at Outdoor Events are so excited for all the creative possibilities! From sweet and whimsical to mysterious and sophisticated, Ultra Violet color #18-3838 is a versatile addition to your party and event planning.


While purple can sometimes seem like a bold choice of color, Ultra Violet has the ability to be used alone or work as a pop-of-color in table décor, flower arrangements, and design elements. Choose a tablecloth in the rich color to make your dinner and flatware stand out. If you prefer a subdued approach, use it as a backdrop to silver and gold accents that will shimmer against it as if it were the evening sky.

If you are planning a wedding fit for royalty, Ultra Violet is as luxurious and regal a color as they come. Vary shades of the color around your reception room for a feel of a fantasy wedding come to life. Dim the lights, add flickering candles and tall candelabras to make it an evening even Cinderella would envy.

Ultra Violet is a beautiful addition to any garden party or outdoor wedding. The color stands out beautifully against a backdrop of green fronds and white forget-me-nots. You can also use Ultra Violet ribbons to wrap around bouquets or as a table runner against crisp white tablecloths.

Any season, indoor or out, Pantone’s new color of the year is sure to be eye catching and party pleasing. Let us at Outdoor Events help you pick out the perfect items to make your event one to remember!
