With a new year comes new trends. The realm of party decorations is not immune to this as well! If you have an upcoming event, you might be thinking of how you can one-up your venue decorations from last year to make it look more appropriate for 2020.
We’re here to tell you exactly that! Drawing inspiration from the current hot topics and trends in the new year, these will be a perfect launching pad for you in your décor planning.
1. Color of the year
Since late 2019, design aficionados around the world had held their breaths for this one big announcement – the Colour of the Year for 2020. Appointed and announced by Pantone, the leading voice of colour standards, the colour was finally unveiled to the world to much great excitement.
And the colour?
The traditional favourite is a harmonious colour with just the right amount of assurance and boldness. This year, you’re going to see a lot of product launched in this colour – and what better way to hop on the bandwagon than to match your event décor to it? You can keep it classy with some gold or silver embellishments, or go all-out whimsy with splashes of other primary colours like red and yellow.
Sustainable living has been a hot topic for years now, and 2019 really upped the ante with global movements to go free from plastic straws, more people opting for reusable cutlery and shopping bags, and more emphasis on sustainable fashion.
It may be difficult to go green on party decorations. Still, some ways you can do so is by making sure whatever decorations you do have make an impact without going overboard on being wasteful. Some eco-friendlier alternatives are plant-based decorations like actual plants or wooden signs.
3. Gender neutrality
Gone are the days where blue is for boys and pink is for girls. At baby showers or birthday parties, you will find a ton of other colours instead of these clichéd colours. So, don’t be afraid to explore other colour combinations instead of sticking to the traditional defaults.
It also helps that party decorations today come in all sorts of different shades. You won’t be hard-pressed to find helium birthday balloons in Singapore coming in unique shades like gold or silver, and there are even those with elegant marbled designs. The sky’s the limit – go crazy with the colours!
4. Space-themed everything
This may be the year you see more galactic designs popping up. Not just owing to the still-strong popularity of the Star Wars franchise, the love for all things galaxy is also due to the pure aesthetic nature of this style. Think of the spectacular colours of the cosmos, and you will get what we mean.
For the galaxy fans, you can easily incorporate space-themed decorations with a black, blue, and purple colour scheme. Balloons are a great way to add to this style, with metallic shades or confetti balloons. Complete this with some star motifs or a spaceship or two, and you are good to go!
5. The ’90s
You might have heard that trends come and go in cycles. So, it is no wonder that the ’90s are back in style! Anything ’90s related will be sure to stir up some healthy nostalgia and hype up your party with a sense of simpler times.
One way to do this is by implementing a dress code for ’90s style fashion. The decoration can also revolve around favourite memories of the ’90s, like posters of your favourite pop bands of the era, strewing ’90s toys and memorabilia around a feature table, and everyone’s favourite childhood snacks.
Of course, we’re still early in 2020, and new trends may come up as the year goes along. So, keep your eyes peeled for the latest advancements, and meanwhile, you can consider some of these as inspiration for your next party décor scheme. We’re confident you will impress your guests with the thoughtful and beautiful decorations!
