PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue

Putting Pantone into Your Wedding Décor.

Pantone’s own website describes their 2020 colour of the year as: ‘A timeless and enduring blue hue, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity’. As they say, the colour is suggestive of the sky at dusk. 

 They also describe blue as something imprinted in our psyche as a restful colour. A claim supported by this website all about the psychology of colour. The site describes blue as the colour of the mind and one that soothes. Blue affects us mentally whereas red brings about a more physical response. They claim that research often shows blue as a favoured colour across the world.

We’re in turbulent times at the moment, thus Pantone suggests that their classic blue ‘brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit, offering refuge.’

Create a Travel Themed Venue Decor

In this blog we show you how to create a travel themed venue decor in your wedding or party venue. This is a fun theme to create if you’re a globe-trotting loving couple. What’s more, it’s one that can be done equally well if you’re on a budget or if you’ve got cash to splash.

Create a travel themed venue dressing on a budget

As with creating any venue décor, hiring decorative elements can save you a whole heap of money. Here at Fabulous Functions UK we’ve got some great stuff for you to hire.

We offer you a cost-effective way to travel the world at your wedding in our accessory hire shop and treasure trove online cave: 

  • Items to style your travel themed tablescape | The Fab Gift Gift Boutique |Swindon | UK
    Vintage suitcases: stacked in a corner these battered suitcases will evoke a sense of journeys undertaken. And the one you’re about to undertake as man and wife. You can put them to good use as a repository for your cards and small gifts or simply have them as decoration.
  • Vintage style globe: or any globe for that matter. Ours spins on its wooden base so you and your guest can travel the world without leaving the venue.

Things you can beg, borrow and cadge to add to your travel theme

Scour charity shops and car boot sales, ask friends and neighbours if they have any of the following:

  1. Vintage cameras.
  2. Guide books and phrase books
  3. Maps and atlases
  4. Travel posters and bunting
  5. Travel writing books
  6. Vanity cases
  7. Sunglasses
  8. Old passports
  9. Old tickets and boarding passes
  10. Bunting and flags of the world
  11. Compasses, telescopes and binoculars

Any or all of the above will be pretty cheap to get hold of and even cheaper if you can borrow them.

Round it all off with a cake in the form of suitcases! This one is from the Cake Store in London. And this Pinterest page has loads of suitcase cake suggestions. Or take flight with a cake in aeroplane form.

How to Create a travel themed venue decor with more cash to splash

We’ve travelled the World Wide Web with the Fab Gift Boutique mouse and keyboard and sourced you some brilliant ideas to travel themed venue decor for your wedding or party.

Buzzfeed has 27 travel-inspired wedding ideas – so here’s our top picks from that article. If you’re clever at crafts you may well be able to reproduce some of them yourself.

  1. Have the bridesmaid carry vanity cases instead of bouquets. So much the better if you can get hold of vintage ones. But any vanity cases will be fine. They don’t need to match. Go for an eclectic look.
  2. Instead of confetti make paper punches from maps. These would be great sprinkled on the tables at the reception too.
  3. Make a bouquet out of maps.
  4. If your wedding is a destination wedding make a signpost of the places where guests have travelled from.
  5. Use airmail stickers and Par Avion stationery for your invitations.
  6. Use luggage tags/labels as place settings.
