September 22, 2023 Jessica Stewart

'Tis the fall season, and with it comes an event planner's fall roster of events to curate. And you'll have to get creative with event designs and decor that fit the season. There are just some color palettes that make you think of pumpkin pie, cozy sweaters, and hot cider. And those color combinations are brilliant for event planners who have social events to curate during the fall. Here are just a few of those fall favorite color combos for inspiration as you plan your upcoming fall festivals, celebrations, and New York events.

1. Tie in the Colors of Fall Foliage

One of the more prominent color wheels with all the fall vibes is one that captures the essence of fall foliage. When planning your social events, including anniversary parties, retirement parties, and milestone birthday parties, consider infusing them with all the fall colors. These deep golden yellows, rich orange hues, and rusty reds are just like the Hudson tree line. Bring the outdoor fall vibes indoors with the same colors to accent your engagement. 

2. Earthy and Muted Tones

Fall celebrations can often include event designs that tie in earthy and muted tones throughout the space. Other event elements will stand out brilliantly against a backdrop of calming creams, soft browns, and magical mustard hues. Bring natural vibes to your social events with au naturale color combos that inspire warmth, welcoming, and festive emotions.

3. Bright and Vibrant Fall Colors

The great aspect of event designs for fall is the flexibility to go bright and vibrant or more naturally subdued. And bright colors can transform an event venue in a big way. Use brightly colored mums to accent your spaces, along with brilliantly painted pumpkins. Bright reds and fun oranges are also in season.

4. Event Designs and Food Colors

Another way to find inspiration for your fall color palettes and event decor is by infusing your favorite fall food-related colors into your designs. Bring an array of gourd and squash colors, including the ever-iconic oranges associated with pumpkins. Or lean into the fall fruits, including vibrant apple color variations of greens, reds, and golden delicious.
