Majestic Table Linens have become some of our favorite specialty linens this wedding season! While these table linens are actually 100% polyester, Majestic linens have a silkier shine to them which we absolutely love! Along with a little bit of shine, our Majestic linens also have a textured appearance to them, which instantly creates a more polished table setting! Compared to a basic polyester table linen, a Majestic linen is thinner and really creates a more elegant look. There are a wide variety of color options in this specialty linen, and each color gives off a bright pop due to the shiny nature of the fabric! We anticipate using these gorgeous table linens on many more events to come!

Waterford Wednesday: Fun Facts

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
We can’t believe that September is right around the corner! With wedding season still in full swing, this week has been a busy one for us as we prep our linens for an exciting Labor Day weekend full of weddings! If you read our blog each Wednesday and Friday, you know that Waterford is all about providing gorgeous linens for events, but today we thought we’d share some more fun facts about our company!

We Ship Linens!
PicMonkey CollageAlthough we are located in Hampton Roads and do most of our events in the area, we ship linens all over the United States for clients! We absolutely love seeing our table linens, runners, overlays, and more transform event after event! From the east coast to the west, our linens have traveled all over!

No Event Is Too Big Or Small!

Whether you are hosting a 300 person wedding, or throwing a more intimate event such as a bridal shower, no event is too big or small for Waterford! We’ve done gorgeous setups for both large and small events and love the way that linens can add something extra to any event!

We Steam!

Next to providing great quality linens, steaming is one aspect that is very important to our company! We pride ourselves on making sure that every table linen and chair cover looks it’s very best during a setup and that there are no wrinkles in sight! Check out our video on the process that Waterford goes through to steam our linens!

Feature Friday: Crinkle Taffeta

Welcome back to another Feature Friday!
Last week we introduced our Taffeta Rosette linen, and this week is all about another one of our gorgeous Taffeta linens!

Our Crinkle Taffeta linen is one of our absolute favorite speciality linens! We adored this linen in the aqua/tiffany blue color, shown above, when it was featured on a table at our Crystal Clear Vision event. This linen is a more basic type of speciality linen, and is distinguished by the subtle “crinkle” in the material. The Crinkle Taffeta linen would be the perfect addition to anyone looking for a basic table linen with a touch of something extra! The fact that this specialty linen comes in a wide variety of colors ranging from dark to light makes it that much better!

Waterford Wednesday: Plate Chargers

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
Today we thought it’d be fun to chat about one of our very favorite table additions: plate chargers!2014-08-14_0053-879x1024Photo // Macon Photography

We absolutely love the addition of plate chargers at any event! They really do add that extra “touch” that tables sometimes need. In our experience with working with plate chargers, we’ve found that they are extremely versatile! They can be added to a table adorned with a specialty linen to give off a high end glamorous feel, or be placed on a basic polyester linen to give the table a polished, elegant touch! Including accessories on your tables such as a grogeous floral arrangement, candles, or table numbers is a sure way to enhance plate chargers as well! One of our favorite ways for brides to utilize plate chargers is to include a napkin or menu on top of the charger. This is also a great way to add in your event color! You can match the menu or napkin colors to your plate chargers or just go with a great neutral that will look amazing as well!

Check out the various plate chargers we offer on our Extras page!

Feature Friday: Taffeta Rosette

It’s Feature Friday, and we are highlighting another one of our popular specialty linens!

Taffeta Rosette

This gorgeous specialty linen is similar to our Satin Rosette on Mesh linen that we previously featured, but is much less textured! The taffeta fabric mixed with the rosette design makes for such a beautiful shiny apperance that looks great on any table! This specialty linen comes in a variety of colors and is featured above in black and champagne. If you’re looking for a specialty linen with a unique design, but that sits more flatly on your table, this Taffeta Rosette is it!

Waterford Wednesday: Choosing Linen Colors

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
Last week our Feature Friday was all about the many colors of our Polyester linens, so we thought we’d share some of favorite ideas for choosing the right linen colors for your event! Of course, linens are the focal point of our company, but color is what really elevates our linens!

Get Inspired!

One word: Pinterest! Planning any big event can be stressful enough without having to think about what color scheme you’re going to want, but with social media sites such as Pinterest, countless ideas and designs can be at your fingertips! Searching through various visual collections will give you ideas on attractive color combinations as well as give you a sense of what colors you are drawn to.

Accentuate White!

White is a standard color for many events, as that is what most people use as the base for their guest tables. White is crisp and clean, but it doesn’t always have to be basic. Adding major pops of color on white is the perfect way to add attention! Whether it be table runners in chevron, or napkins in varying shades of pink, accentuate the white!

Color Tones & Shades Matter!
It’s important to be aware of the various shades of the same color! Although it may not seem like there is a huge difference between “light blue” and “royal blue,” there is! The perfect shade can take your event from light and romantic to dramatic and bold.

Be Different!

Don’t let the “norm” get in the way of what you like. Just because you’re having a winter event doesn’t mean you can’t include summer colors! Choose colors that you love and that will leave a lasting impression of your event! Often times, colors that aren’t frequently used together come together beautifully when mixed correctly.

We hope these fun tips help in creating some awesome color ideas for your next event!

Feature Friday: Polyester Linens

Happy Feature Friday!
This week is all about one of our most popular products, polyester linens!

Polyester Linens

Our polyester linens have been SO popular and in high demand this wedding season! Although polyester is a basic type of linen, many of our products including table cloths, runners, overlays, and napkins come in this fabric! Not only are our polyester linens durable and very crisp looking at events, they come in a vast amount of colors that are sure to accomodate any type of event! Like we’ve said before, specialty linens are amazing, but having  basic polyester linen in an eye-popping color is just as great!

Waterford Wednesday: Bold Tables

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
As our busy wedding season is still in full swing, we can’t help but love the bold statements some of our brides have been making with their linen choices! At one of our many events this past weekend, our bride went for black table linens instead of the “traditional” white or ivory. Coupled with a pintuck champagne overlay, we absolutely loved how the tables turned out!
Photo Aug 02, 7 31 21 PMPicMonkey Collage.pngThis gorgeous wedding, at the Chrysler Museum of Art, was planned by Sandy Baxter of Baxter’s Creative Events and had the most gorgeous centerpieces thanks to Palette of Petals! As if we didn’t already love the bold linens enough, the centerpieces gave off such a classic vintage feel that really brought the table and varying colors together so well. When it comes to weddings, it’s all in the details, which is why we are so obsessed with all the tiny touches! The addition of our gold plate chargers really added to the vintage feel and the hanging pearls on the centerpieces were the perfect embellishment. We love when so much thought and attention to detail is sprinkled throughout a wedding!

Feature Friday: Pinchwheel

Welcome back to another Feature Friday!
This week is all about another one of our specialty table linens.

Pinchwheel Table Linen

gatsby-121-2757202421-O We absolutely love our Pinchwheel table linen! This particular linen is considered a specialty, but the simplicity of the look and texture makes it a great linen for any table at an event! It comes in many different colors ranging from dark, like the Pewter shown above, to a lighter Champagne. Although this linen is much simpler than other specialty linens, the unique “pinch” makes for an eye-popping table setting!
