3 Unique and Beautiful Ways to Decorate with Pantone’s Colors of the Year

When Pantone announced its color of the year for 2016 as not one but two colors‚ Serenity and Rose Quartz–we were so excited. Pantone’s colors of the year always sets the stage for great ways to decorate, and with two colors to choose from this time around, the sky is the limit when it comes to planning color palettes for events!

Sure enough, event planners have already started using the calm pale blue, Serenity, and we have three examples of how to use this shade in different ways.

An Inviting Winter Collage


Serenity, arctic ice, gold, and aqua green make a gorgeous palette for winter or spring events, and its versatility shined at this event. With calming blue tones, this look is well-suited for a variety of gatherings.

The textured table linen paired beautifully with ornate glassware, and unique décor elements like photo place cards and candy-filled jars add a playful and inviting look.


No matter what type of event you’re planning, these colors are great for creating a sophisticated feel. This palette forms a cohesive look that centers around Serenity.

Intricately patterned Marseille table linen is an opulent background for bouquets of different shades of white, ivory, lime, and grass green. Aquamarine and opaque white glassware show that every detail was attended to, and the whole event was kept light and enchanting with lush centerpieces and accent candles.

Balanced and Bright


Using a pop of bright red makes this palette extremely unique. Serenity, buttercup, bright pastel azure, and fiesta red create an interesting, eye-catching scene that’s great for a wedding or baby shower, anniversary party, or other celebratory event.
