How to Plan an Ultra Violet Themed Party

5 Mar

The 2018 Pantone Color of the Year is in and, once again, we're loving it with major heart eyes.  Pantone Ultra Violet is a vibrant hue as deep as it is timely, and we can't wait to see all of your ultra violet inspired wedding themes! 

A word from the color experts on this gem of a purple: "Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of [ultra violet] symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets."  - Pantone Color Institute

Read: Make a statement about yourself through the very choice of this provoking color. 💜 

So how do you plan the perfect ultra violet inspired party? Think beyond the color swatch and incorporate different shades of purple for a tastefully tinted theme. Our recommendation is to start with creating some fantastic and uniquely 'you' custom party supplies.
