5. Bright and Neon Colors

Bright colors are back in a big way in 2023, bringing a fun and playful vibe to any event. Neon colors can be used as accents or as the primary color palette for your event, depending on your personal style and preferences. Plus, they're sure to make your event stand out and leave a lasting impression.

The event design and color trends are all about sustainability, boldness, and creativity.
