Bring on warmth and elegance with a rose gold party theme for the holidays!

Rose gold is best described as the romantic pink tint of yellow gold and copper. It’s subtle blush tones stole the spotlight this year in home decorating, jewelry and clothing. Why not let it bring sparkle and pizzaz to your Christmas and New Year’s parties?

Rose gold history

The charm of rose gold infatuated Russian royalty back in the 1800s. Russian jewelers captured the look by blending yellow gold and copper to make what they termed “Russian Gold” for czars. Later the color combo was renamed Rose Gold. The feminine hue made its debut in the U.S. in the lavish 1920s, just a few years before the Great Depression hit. In the past century, its popularity has come and gone until its recent fashion leap.

I’ve seen rose gold steal the show at many 2018 parties such as weddings, anniversaries and baby showers. The rising demand for rose gold favors and party supplies leads me to believe that 2019 will be a banner year for this pretty tone.

  • Choose the right accent colors: All types of metallics work well with rose gold but pale copper tops the list. It also gives your holiday party a classy feel. Colors that pair well with rose gold include white, light gray, black, beige, yellow, aqua, navy, sky blue, mint green, teal and deep rose.
  • Be generous with pink bows and roses: Garnish your centerpieces, wreaths, wall decorations, Christmas tree and even some of your desserts with pink bows and roses. Use various shades of pink or one of the accent colors suggested above.
  • Trim the Christmas tree: A bold way to exclaim your rose gold holiday theme is via your Christmas tree. Since the color is so popular, it’s easy to find ornaments and ribbon in various rose gold hues. Add small, white lights to make the color pop.
  • Announce glad tidings: A “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” banner with dominating rose gold tones is a thoughtful way to incorporate your color theme at a corporate event. Customize your banner to include your company name and a wish for the holiday season.
  • Drink it up: Serve rose gold-colored drinks such as Jingle Juice Holiday Punch, courtesy of Inspired By Charm.
