• The Ladies of A-1


Updated: Dec 26, 2018

We are swooning over the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year, Ultra Violet. The blue-tinged shade of purple is bold, mystical, luxurious and enigmatic. It is a color that reflects experimentation and desire for what is beyond. Prince found inspiration in Ultra Violet with his album and song, Purple Rain and Jimi Hendrix with his song, Purple Haze. From fashion to home decor, this powerful color can be found everywhere this year. We're excited to show you how it has inspired us.

"As individuals around the world become more fascinated with color and realize

its ability to convey deep messages and meanings, designers and brands

should feel empowered to use color to inspire and influence. The Color of the

Year is one moment in time that provides strategic direction for the world of

trend and design, reflecting the Pantone Color Institute’s year-round work

doing the same for designers and brands" - Pantone

Ultra Violet inspired the design for our booth at the 2018 Winter Wedding Show at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia, MO. For this event, we joined forces with Annabelle Events, SW Productions, Bleu Events, SC Events, Ink Cafe, Kent’s Floral, and Bur Oak Brewing Co. to create a collaborative booth. Ink Cafe designed table menus and laser cut wooden names that were used as place cards. We adore the scripted letting and elegant feel of these designs. Kent’s Floral created centerpieces filled with luscious florals in pink and purple hues. Bleu made some tasty purple foods for guests to sample like a purple cauliflower hummus and beet-stained deviled eggs.

To incorporate the Color of the Year, we used our rose velvet linen on each table, accented with our grape and wisteria matte satin napkins, and a purple matte satin runner on the head table. Each place setting held our Capri gold flatware, Duchess dinner and salad plates, glass gold rim chargers, bourdeaux wine glass and water goblet. The Elizabeth and Clover fruitwood chairs added to the elegance of the event. This event was a blast and we loved the inspiration we found in Ultra Violet!
