Looking to go bold and bright with your event design this season? Bring Pantone’s Color of the Year, Viva Magenta, into the mix.
Loved for its fun and evocative properties, this electrifying color compliments parties, big and small, bringing a warm yet daring feel to designs. While this color is anything but understated, there are a variety of ways to strategically incorporate this punchy red hue into your special event, whether you choose to go all-out or in . We’ve rounded up some of our favorite magenta-forward rentals and design tips sure to inspire.
Lean into Viva Magenta Linens
Magenta exudes confidence. So why not make magenta the star of your décor by renting linens and chairs in this cool crimson shade? Table linens set the scene and invite guests to bask in the brightness and playfulness this color conjures. For a top-to-bottom table look, try Cotton Raspberry or Bengaline Cerise, or upgrade to a textured solid like our Shalimar Fuchsia linen, which features an iridescent, sparkling textured wave pattern. Another fun way to bring this bright reddish tone to your table? Patterned linens. Our Ziggy Plum or Ziggy Coral, and Zoey Coral linens bring an eye catching element with their multicolored prints, pairing perfectly with solid colored linens for a mix-and-match design. Want a subdued look that adds just a small pop of color to place settings? Rent napkins and runners instead of full table linens.
Dish Out Magenta with Glassware & China
In addition to table linens, glassware is a great way to incorporate Pantone’s color of the year into your event color palette by way of signature cocktails. Our Pink Debutante Goblet adds a fun and feminine feel to events with its etched floral pattern, pairing seamlessly with magenta color palettes.
Want to make your plates the star of your tabletop? Try our Antoinette Violet China, which exudes a charming, old world feel, yet adds a colorful pop to any tablescape. It’s the perfect accessory to a magenta-colored side dish, like the elevated yet scrumptious purple potato!
Draped in Magenta
If desiring a bold backdrop to enhance your ceremony or event space, try our pipe and drape and use uplighting to project magenta hues. In a similar vein, our selection of flooring offers an additional opportunity to incorporate magenta into your event space. One of our white or black dance floors, could serve as the backdrop for your company’s logo or your married name to be displayed on the dance floor in this year’s trending shade.
Make Magenta a Mood at Your Bar
It’s no secret the bar is the most frequented spot at any event, so why not make it part of your design. Our Versa and Morph bars offer the perfect opportunity to infuse magenta into your color scheme. Add a custom fabric panel to our Versa Bar or use a special monogram, logo or patterned vinyl or inlay on the front of our Morph Bar. Want to keep things more simple? Affix florals to the front of our Versa Bar with Hedge Insert for an understated feel that’s befitting a botanical, garden-style look.
Make Your Lounge Magenta
Give your guests another place to sit and relax away the dance floor with a styled lounge space featuring magenta décor like balloons, florals and more. While not magenta (but still in the family of pinks and reds) our Pink Pillow Package adds a layer of color and interest to lounges. For a bold punch of color, rent our Orchid Milo Daybed. These variations of pink and purple tie together a magenta color scheme or stand alone as the audacious pop of color every event needs in 2023.
Moments of Magenta
Beyond rental items, there are a variety of ways to sprinkle the magenta into your event, from florals to stationery and more. Elevate your table with a colorful floral chandelier or installation, walk down the aisle with a bouquet composed of purple and pink perennials, like peonies and dahlias, or add a menu card to each guest plate for added allure. For a more understated yet trendy look, cinch your bouquet with a magenta bow. Welcome your guests into the event space with a cascading floral arch of your favorite magenta blooms, or add candlesticks in magenta hues to your tablescape décor. The possibilities are endless!
