Feature Friday: Ivory Chiffon Sash

Happy Feature Friday!
We are excited to feature one of our gorgeous, elegant specialty sashes!

Ivory Chiffon SashesIvory Chiffon Sashes

Our Ivory Chiffon Sashes are one of our most stunning sash options! The sheer and lightweight look and feel of this sash adds the perfect delicate and soft touch to any event! Since the chiffon sashes are generally larger in size, they look beautiful when placed on a chivari (or similar) type of chair. The draping effect that the sashes have when placed on a chair creates an elegant touch that many brides who are having a black tie wedding appreciate! The chiffon fabric is so easy to shape and work with that many tie options can be achieved! We personally love the “weaved” look that multiple chiffon sashes create on a chair!

Waterford Wednesday: Weekend Recap

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
This past weekend was a busy one for Waterford, and we thought we’d share some pictures of the linens used at two of our events! We love how each event was on the same day, yet the style and feel of the individual events were so different! It’s always so interesting to see the vision of each bride come to life!
PicMonkey CollageWe LOVED the way our white table linens and navy and white striped runners looked at this event coordinated by Emily Weddings! This wedding was held outside at the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club, and the weather could not have been any more perfect for it! Our navy and white striped runners are often used for events with a “nautical” theme, and they were the perfect fit for this particular wedding.

She used many of our specialty table linens, and everything came together SO beautifully. She had a gorgeous “kings table” as her head table, and dressed it up with our nude sequence linens, ivory rosette on mesh table runners, gold plate chargers, and satin champagne blush napkins. It was definitely an elegant and breathtaking wedding!

Feature Friday: Burlap

Happy Feature Friday!
We’re excited to be featuring another one of our most popular fabrics!

BurlapPicMonkey Collage

We go crazy for burlap at Waterford! Burlap is such an awesome fabric that looks gorgeous during summer events, yet transitions so well to a rustic-style fall event! There are so many different directions you can go in when including burlap fabric into your event. We have many different burlap options, and one of our favorite ways to incorporate burlap is through our runners! Runners provide just enough of the burlap, that mixed in with other elements of your event can produce a stunning setting! Our burlap sashes also add a great “rustic” feel without having to be included on each table! Whether you choose to go simple with a burlap runner or sash, or more over the top with our burlap overlays, you’re bound to have a gorgeous rustic event!

Waterford Wednesday: Table Options

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
Today is all about different table options! With any event that you’re hosting, there are many different table layouts and options that can be used in order to fully bring your ideal concept to life! While it may not seem like an important decision, the right mixture of tables can make an event that much more memorable. Here are a few of our favorite table types for any event!

1. Long Tables

We are huge fans of long tables at weddings! There are a variety of ways to utilize long tables, but the most popular is definitely for bridal party seating. Having one long table that seats many of the most important guests at your wedding is an excellent way to create a more family-style feel! Placing long tables at the head of the room, or the middle is what we’ve seen works best!

2. Cocktail Tables

While cocktail tables aren’t used for seating guests around them, they are the perfect tables for guests to socialize around. The height and smaller dimension of these tables makes it easy to circulate in an open area freely, while also having a place to set a drink or eat some small bites! We love to dress cocktail tables in a basic linen with a gorgeous sash tied in a bow. After all, cocktail hour is a prelude to what guests can expect at the reception!

3. Round Tables

Of course, we can’t forget about the classic round tables! Round tables really are the perfect tables for any event! Seating at a round table allows for guests to have conversations with everyone at the table and provides a friendly atmosphere where everyone can enjoy looking at the layout of the event as a whole! Since round tables have become the traditional style of table seen at events, the linens and decor used to dress them becomes very important! You want to set your event apart from every other one!

Feature Friday: Lace

It’s Feature Friday!
Today is all about a gorgeous, light fabric that we are seeing A LOT of this fall.

Lace1656316_633810973322830_590173127_n

We love, love, love all of our lace linens! From overlays and table runners to sashes, lace is definitely a timeless fabric that looks great in any season at any event! The great part about using a lace linen at your event is the versatility it provides when choosing other linens. Since lace is a see-through, patterned type of fabric, there are so many options of what can be placed underneath it! You can go for multiple layers like the above picture, keep it more basic with just a neutral base table linen, or go for a bold pop of color underneath the lace! While lace is definitely not considered a basic linen, it is simple enough where it could adorn multiple guest tables, yet could be dressed up to accentuate one particular table!

Waterford Wednesday: Cypress Anniversary Party

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
As we’ve mentioned before, we absolutely love seeing “final” pictures of events where our linens are used. Often times, we set up our linens earlier in the day and don’t get to see the whole transformation that florals, lighting, etc. bring to the event, so pictures are the next best thing! This past week Waterford provided the linens for the 22nd Anniversary of the Cypress Point Country Club and the pictures that Dmitry Gotkis Photography took at the event are stunning!

We loved how each room had a distinct direction and were so different! Our champagne pintuck table linens paired with the dark sage satin sashes and napkins in the main banquet room was such an elegant combination that paired two fall colors together perfectly! We also loved how our ivory table linens and burlap runners were the base of the tables topped with gorgeous pumpkin floral arrangements by Storybook Events! Great job to Anne, Ivory, and Dmitry on the Cypress Anniversary Party!

Feature Friday: Silver Eyelash Table Linen

Happy Feature Friday everyone!
It’s been a crazy busy week for us as we prepare for a ton of events this weekend, but before that we’re here to feature another one of our gorgeous specialty table linens!

Silver Eyelash Table Linenp386586855-3

I mean, how great is this linen?! Not only does the linen itself scream “party” with its metallic shimmer, but the name Eyelash is also super fun and cute! We briefly talked about our Silver Eyelash linen in our Waterford Wednesday: Oceanaire Photo Shoot post when it was used for a stylized shoot photographed by Will King Photography. We loved how the Silver Eyelash Linen was paired with the satin blush sashes and napkins then, but we are really excited to see this table linen used in some winter weddings! Wouldn’t this linen be so great on a sweetheart table or cake/dessert table? We think so! This is definitely a specialty linen we are looking forward to seeing used in the coming months!

Feature Friday: Champagne Blush Satin

It’s Feature Friday!
Today’s specialty linen is a gorgeous mixture of two very popular wedding colors!

Champagne Blush Satin08_02_14_blog_cavalier_yacht_club_photo_039

We are completely in love with this photo by David Abel Photography! I mean, how GORGEOUS is this Champagne Blush Satin table linen? It has the perfect balance of the romantic champagne color, yet the linen still has that soft touch of blush! The color combination makes this specialty linen so versatile, as we’ve seen it used at both indoor and outdoor events. The satin fabric of this table linen radiates elegance, yet isn’t over the top, which is key. A basic polyester table linen is great, but the satin just takes each table to a new level! Emily Weddings did such a fantastic job coordinating the wedding pictured above! The simple decor, and gorgeous floral centerpieces by Palette of Petals were the perfect additions to the table that really accentuated our Champagne Blush Satin table linen.

Waterford Wednesday: Fall Touches

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
Today marks the beginning of October and with that comes more fall weddings and events! Over the past few weeks, each event that we’ve done has had fall touches included and we are loving every moment of it!
Photo Sep 30, 11 51 12 PMBurnt orange is always a popular color and a favorite of ours during the fall! This burnt orange satin sash placed under a lace sash was the perfect combination without looking too busy this past weekend at The Founders Inn and Spa. We always love when our clients can mix bold colors with a fabric as romantic and airy as lace!
Photo Sep 26, 2 05 04 PMThe arrival of a new season also means the opportunity for Waterford to change out our displays in venues across Hampton Roads! We were excited to be able to get creative and change out our table display at West Neck Village Hall this past weekend! Our satin champagne blush table linen, chocolate pintuck overlay, gold plate chargers with champagne blush napkins, and ivory chairs covers with moss green pintuck sashes were the perfect “fall” additions to this table display! The gorgeous floral that Palette of Petals graciously provided brought everything together beautifully, and we can’t wait for brides to get inspired!

Keep up with us all fall long! There will be plenty of inspiration to come, trust us!
