title varchar(250) NULL,
backgroundColor varchar(250) NULL,
event_date timestamp NULL
INSERT INTO `events` (`id`, `title`, `backgroundColor`, `event_date`) VALUES
(1, 'Walk-In', '#000000', '2018-06-5 11:07:27'),
(2, 'Online Booking', '#000000', '2018-06-6 02:37:05'),
(3, 'Facebook Booking', '#000000', '2018-06-7 04:01:00')
 Here is the complete code to Add backgroundColor to full calendar event with php mysql and you can paste that code into your php file:
$servername = "localhost";
$username   = "root";
$password   = "root";
$dbname     = "calendar";

// Create connection
$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);

// Check connection
if ($conn->connect_error) {
    die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);
if(isset($_POST["submit"]) == "submit" && isset($_POST["eventTitle"]) != "")
    $sql = "INSERT INTO events (title, event_date, backgroundColor)
        VALUES ('".$_POST['eventTitle']."', '".$_POST['eventDate']."', '".$_POST['eventColor']."')";
    if (mysqli_query($conn,$sql)) {
        echo "New event added successfully";
    } else {
        echo "Error: " . $sql . "<br>" . $conn->error;

  //echo "Connected successfully";
$sql = "SELECT title, event_date as start, backgroundColor FROM events";
$result = mysqli_query($conn,$sql); 
$myArray = array();
if ($result->num_rows > 0) {
// output data of each row
    while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) {
