Classic Blue: Pantone 2020

Dec, 10, 2019

Classic Blue Pantone


The Pantone Color Institute introduces Classic Blue 19- 4052 as the 2020 Color of the Year. Classic Blue has been described by the Pantone Color Institute as a “timeless and enduring blue hue elegant in its simplicity” and “the reassuring qualities of the thought-provoking Classic Blue highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era”. Quite fitting for a new decade to come. 

Pantone Color of the Year 2020

The Pantone Color Institute searches for color influences across the globe considering things like art, fashion, pop culture, film, along with social and economic factors. The annual Pantone color has been known to have major impact on design, planning and purchasing products that companies look to for influence for the upcoming year. In the Special Event Industry, we see this influence in table linens and other design elements. At Party Reflections, Inc. we have several options that can be utilized to create the perfect Classic Blue concept at your next event.

Pantone is known to pick the color of the year as a representation of an influential event or social cause in the world. In past years, they’ve chosen colors such as Rose Quartz & Serenity to bring awareness to gender equality. Greenery in 2017 was to show recognition to the environment and climate change, while last year’s color, Living Coral was spotlighted to educate on the endangered living coral reefs throughout the world. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color institute, mentioned during the Pantone Color of the Year webinar that the Classic Blue hue is a color that is not an aggressive color and has a connection or inclusivity that links everyone together.” This is shown throughout design where it’s encouraged to mix and match blue hues. This propels us to look beyond and expand our own thoughts.

"Thank you and the Party Reflections staff for all the hard work and preparation for the Wedding reception. The Dubose Home was a spectacular venue and the tent was gorgeous. You took care of so many details, especially the last minute ones as the weather deteriorated. When I think back on the evening, I remember the elegance and beauty of the scene and I think the gentle rain made it only cozier. Our family and friends were all so complimentary of the setting and the bride and groom were thrilled. The photographer got a great picture of the bride's mouth wide open with awe as they had their first look inside the tent! "
