2018 Pantone Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

19 Feb

If you haven’t already heard, the Pantone color of the year is Ultra Violet.  “Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own,” according to Pantone.com.

We are inspired by this dynamic shade of purple and created a Ultra Violet inspiration board to explore all the possibilities of how to incorporate it into your life.  Enjoy!

Our picks:  Purple Thank You Banner Note Cards, Hot Water Bottle Cover, Woman in boots, Purple hair, Purple popsicles, Purple Peonies Photo Birth Announcements, Living room, Purple Surprise Party Confetti Dot Invitations, Lupita Nyong’o, Wedding dress, Design Your Own Personalized Amethyst Tervis Tumblers, Bumble Bee Self Inking Stamper, Birthday Confetti Hanging Gift Tags, Purple Woodcut Foldover Note Cards.  

 You can also view this inspo board (with even more Ultra Violet inspiration) on our Pinterest page.  Be sure to follow us on Pinterest for inspiration for all your events!
