Fall 2017 Color Trends For Meetings & Events

Autumn has arrived! As the air cools, we are always comforted to see vibrant fall hues adding warmth to fall events and meetings. And this year, we’re excited to see pretty pops of brightness and striking cool details amidst the warmer, darker hues of fall.

That’s because the Pantone Color Report for Fall 2017 highlights some gorgeous jewel tones to pair with traditional fall shades. Each season, the Pantone Color Institute highlights the top 10 trends seen at Fashion Week. This report is widely read, and event planners and designers everywhere take note.


We’re delighted with the entire palette that Pantone has announced for this fall. Enjoy below  a few ways that we look forward to incorporating these interesting hues into fall meetings and events:

This color happens to be hugely popular among millennials. A rosy shade, it’s beautiful for spring and summer social events (especially weddings). We expect to see it stand out alongside the more traditional colors selected by Pantone for fall, like Tawny Port and Butterum. It’s a color you’ll most definitely see incorporated into florals and centerpiece design, as well as in small delicate decor details like menu cards and invitations.

This color is an attention-grabber! We think you’ll see this fun little pop of color at events with a modern decor theme, set among muted hues like Golden Lime and Butterrum. It’s a great color to incorporate into the invitation or on other paper products like straws, menu cards and signage. We can’t wait to get creative with this one!

We’re swooning over this fiery, standout version of the traditional fall orange. It would be beautiful used for linens, especially at a rustic themed corporate reception. We also look forward to using this color to bring life to unique centerpieces.

A cool shade, Marina is perfect for adding brightness alongside Shaded Spruce and Navy Peony. For a dramatic setting, tall Marina colored candles could be set amidst a centerpiece of evergreen. It’s perfect for adding that modern cocktail event feel. We’d love to add Marina to an event to pop against bright white table linens.
