In 2011, Australia Week’s “G’Day USA” black-tie gala took over the Hollywood Palladium on January 22, marking the culmination of Australia Week's Los Angeles festivities. Decked in brownish-red hues, the decor had a palette based on the indigenous colors of Australia's natural environment.

Working with Time Inc.'s Cyd Wilson, Tony Schubert of Event Eleven designed and produced the Los Angeles affair for the fifth consecutive year in 2013. The event had an overall look and feel Schubert described as "romantic" and "rich," evocative of the Art Deco era. The color scheme incorporated plenty of wine-red hues.

Using pomegranates in cocktails is a surefire way to give the drinks a deep red hue. One example: Toronto firm L'Eat Catering serves a pomegranate cocktail during the holiday season. Called "Pom Strega Dolce," the drink melds muddled pomegranate with Mount Gay Eclipse rum, Strega (an Italian herbal liqueur), lemon juice, and fresh mint.

Events inspired by the legendary Moulin Rouge make way for plenty of red decor. At Fight Night in Washington in 2012, André Wells created an entryway to the event space reminiscent of the Moulin Rouge's signature windmill and red signage. The theme also leaves plenty of room for crushed velvet in red-wine hues that closer match Pantone's color of the year.
