A “universal favourite,” Classic Blue, or Pantone 19-4052 is the colour of the year for 2020. Described by Pantone as “a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection,” which is everything you’d want at a wedding! Classic Blue is not too bright or too pale, which means it is perfect to mix with both warm and cool tones.
Warm Tone: Blue & Gold
This is a timeless and luxurious combination. Classic blue serves as a versatile base colour that allows the vibrancy of the gold to pop!
This colour combination can be both modern or traditional, depending on your decor and settings. Use Classic Blue as an accent to give your space a punch of colour. You can also use Classic Blue as your base and trim with white, grey, silver, and platinum for a modern finish.
If Classic Blue isn’t for you, a softer Wedgewood Blue can be incorporated to tone down your look. We carry our Wedgewood Blue linen in most of our linen sizes that can be used as a full linen or a table runner. We also carry chair sashes and napkins that pair well with neutral shades (i.e. cafe, ivory, white) or use blue on blue for a gorgeous, monochrome look. Our vineyard chairs match perfectly with Wedgewood Blue linens and accents!
Whatever your event, there are countless ways to incorporate Pantone’s 2020 colour of the year. Need more inspiration? Come by our office or call in to speak with our sales staff!
Because of its ability to unite a myriad of colours, seasons, and mediums, Greenery is the 2017 Pantone Colour of the Year. Greenery can be the focal point or a calming tie-in for your event.
Recalling freshness, energy, and lushness, there are many ways you can incorporate this colour to evoke different moods at your event.
You can punctuate greenery with colour accents. Use it as a base linen and then go bold with rich hues and pops of bright florals. We have a range of green linens that can work as a base for your bright ideas.
Greenery pairs beautifully with bright colours, deeper shades, jewel tones, and metallic pieces. By bringing foliage to the forefront, you can add a dimensional luxury and invigorate your aesthetic.
Incorporating greenery in your backdrops is a way to add volume amidst a monochromatic scheme. Its versatility means you can achieve whatever suits your mood: playful and vibrant; minimal and calming; or moody and romantic.
Especially with white and neutral shades, Greenery can add a burst of freshness and vibrancy without overpowering your scheme. You can use large leaves as your place cards, tie garlands around balloons or cocktail tables, or drape greenery over chairs. Take a look at our selection of chairs to kickstart your imagination…the possibilities are endless!
Whether you use Greenery as a base, centrepiece, backdrop, or accent, be prepared for a stunning visual. This year’s Pantone colour also has a sunny aspect to it; creating warmth and hope. By bringing in an element of nature and unity, you encourage your guests to not only connect with the environment; you are inviting them to connect with your event.
I have a confession: I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day. I’m all for celebrating love and togetherness but I hate the pressure of making everything perfect on this one day. I have a lot of respect for anyone willing to brave the crowds to put a smile on their loved one’s face. This year, to take the some of the pressure off, we have three easy options that you can set up anywhere!
Surprise your partner with a romantic dinner for two. Here, one of our A&B drivers transformed a warehouse space into a dining area by using silver sequin and white banjo drape to surprise his girlfriend with a home-cooked meal. Lush linens, silver cutlery, and sparkling glassware combined with lots of candlelight and rose petals completed the look that brought tears to her eyes.
For those that love glitz, glamour, and sparkle, this setting is sure to wow! This table, designed by Debut Event Design and photographed by Union Photographers, makes a statement with blush sequins and gold cutlery and china. It has an old Hollywood feel that is fit for the leading lady (or gentleman) in your life.
Sometimes a party with friends is the best route to take. Get your girlfriends (or guy friends) together for a Galentine’s Day party to celebrate the day, regardless of your relationship status.

The important thing is to make sure your plans are full of details that mean something to you and whomever you are spending the day with. They’ll love whatever you came up with regardless of what look you pick as long as it comes from the heart.
