Trending colours for the 2018/19 party season

03 Sep 18 By: Lene McGuinness

The party season is almost upon us and as the nights get longer its time to start planning the details of any festive parties you may be organising. Colour is always an important factor when designing your table layout and decorating a venue. Sometimes, a colour is the focus of the whole theme or it’s the vital supporting act. To help inspire you we’ve compiled a list of this season’s trending colours and how to make the most of them.  

Mustard yellow

Mustard yellow, a standout hue is huge  this season. This colour is perfect to use as an accent, whether it’s with a napkin, plate or glass. Set against a white background, mustard yellow is a colour that pops and gives a table a fresh clean look – perfect for photographs. Pair with crisp white linen, yellow winter flowers and for a festive feel add some spruce tree cuttings.

Rose gold

A colour that has been popular for some time, rose gold is the trend that will not go away. Popular on Instagram, this hue has a luxury feminine feel about it and is perfect for top tier events. This trend first stated in jewellery and its shimmering glossy look make it perfect for the upcoming Christmas season. Get the look with Allens with our Champagne shimmer linen, blush pink Kensington napkin and pink charger plate. To bring a sense of opulence to your event pair your rose gold table cloth with sliver benedict candle sticks.

Ultra violet 

Ultra violet has been declared Pantone’s Colour of the Year. This bold and provocative colour is a perfect choice for the party season.  Use napkins, Jars plates and violate champagne glasses against a white background to create that stand out look. Alternatively, drape your table in a Kensington tablecloth and use simple bright white china with levite cutlery for a contemporary luxurious look.


Gold is a classic colour for the festive season and it’s back for 2018. Not only is it synonymous with Christmas but it evokes a sense of celebration and luxury. If you are looking to add a touch of gold into your event opt for our beautiful gold banqueting chairs or hire our gold Kensington linen. For a touch of class serve your scrumptious cuisine in our Goldline china collection.
