Pantone Color Of 2020 – Classic Blue


For over 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions across multiple industries. This year, Pantone’s color experts have announced that the 2020 Color of the Year is Classic Blue, a shade reminiscent of the sky at dusk.

As described by Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation.”

Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, Classic Blue is a timeless hue, conveying an aura of sophisticated simplicity. It highlights our need for stability as we embark on the new decade. We are crossing the threshold into a new era wondering “Where is the world heading to?”. The sense of reassurance that this enduring color provides is exactly what we search for in an uncertain global milieu.

We love the meaning behind this year’s Pantone color and are more than thrilled to plan our 2020 events, using this chic color that aims to bring people together! Whether you’re planning a marriage proposal or wedding in Greece, a baptism or a social soiree, Classic Blue is an exceptional color, especially if your event takes place on a Greek island as blue is always the color that dominates!

From earth tones and bright hues to shiny metallics and floral patterns, these are some of the trends we’ll be seeing in 2020; velvet, geometric patterns, and fringes are quite popular as well. Picture this – an accented tablescape with classic blue cloth napkins beneath white dinner plates, thin taper candles and a table-length floral arrangement will absolutely wow your guests; or classic blue wedding chair sashes with custom silver bride and groom embroideries to add an elegant touch to a wedding reception.

With so many colors to complement it, Classic Blue can be used for any type of event, formal or intimate. For a bold look, you can punch it up with orange accents or tone it down with soft pastels, like pale pink and off-white. Bright white is also a natural complement to Classic Blue, creating a unique combination reminiscent of the Greek islands, ideal if your event draws inspiration from Greece’s island style. For a burst of positivity, try accenting Classic Blue with yellow and gold or add in a leafy green for the perfect natural look!


“A boundless blue evocative of the vast infinity sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”


Thought-provoking and fostering resilience, Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit. There are so many chic ways to include it at your event in Greece and we’d love to help you incorporate this color into your next event!
