Designing Your Event Around A Unique and Bold Color: Tiffany Blue

Every woman smiles at the sight of Tiffany Blue. I am sure any woman would get excited to attend or even plan a Tiffany Blue themed event. But let me tell you, it sure is a hard color to find, and even harder to match.

Tiffany Blue is just one of a few unique colors that are hard to match exactly. Sometimes you fall in love with a color, whether its from a paint swatch, bottle of nail polish or Pinterest that you just have to use! Maybe it’s that perfect shade of emerald green, or that mix between pink and raspberry that you can’t just seem to find all your decor items to match.

Don’t let that burst your bubble. You can still have the perfect color themed event, without the stress of hunting for the exact color. 

Here are a few ways to put together the perfect event with that perfectly unique color, whatever it may be.

Invest in Key Pieces 

Tiffany Blue Cake

When you decide to design your event around a unique and specific color such as Tiffany Blue, you don’t need to go overboard. Before you Google Renting Tiffany Blue linens, take a step back and think about different ways to bring the color in. Instead of Tiffany Blue linens, make the impact with white or black linens and pop it Tiffany Blue napkins, chair covers or chair sashes.

The key is to not overwhelm your guests with the color theme. You don’t have to purchase everything you can find in the color. Be selective and pick out the pieces that will bring the most impact. Impactful pieces include the cake, favor packaging, flowers, signature cocktails and additional decor. (Photo: Continue reading
