Leaf Petal LinenLeaf Petal Linen

What a gorgeous specialty linen, right?! This particular linen is very similar to our Petal Linen and has the perfect balance of volume and texture! This beauty has small oval-like leaf petals all throughout the linen and has more of a design look thanks to the lines running down the linen! As with most of our specialty linens, we can totally see our Leaf Petal Linen looking gorgeous on a cake or sweetheart table!

We love our Petal Linens so much that we are offering a promotion on their rental all February long! The promotion is offered to all clients who book a Petal Linen IN February!

Waterford Wednesday: Napkin Folds

Happy Waterford Wednesday to all!
We hope you’re having a fantastic week and staying warm through all of this cold weather!
You may remember when we did a Waterford Wednesday Napkin post a couple months ago where we highlighted three of our most requested/popular napkin folds. Napkins are a great linen choice for clients who want to add a little something extra to their tables without having to spend a ton of money. Today we thought we’d highlight some more interesting and visual napkin folds that could stand alone as the star of the table, or enhance a gorgeous table linen!

Secured In The Center

This particular napkin fold is so simple, yet looks so elegant! Creating this fold is super easy, but will have your guests thinking you spent a lot of time perfecting each and every one! There are so many options when it comes to securing the napkin in the center, and a jeweled or sparkly napkin ring is our favorite! If you’re having a “rustic” inspired event, tying a piece of twine around the center would be an adorable addition!

Heart Fold

At one of our weddings last winter, the bride requested a heart-shaped napkin fold and it proved to be such a cute and charming addition to the tables! The heart fold is so visually interesting and completely different from any traditional napkin fold. This is definitely a great napkin choice if you have polyester napkins and are looking to incorporate a unique touch!

Triple Pocket

We love this triple pocket napkin fold! It is similar to a regular menu fold, but the three pockets make for a nice layered look! There are a lot of options that you could utilize with this particular fold. We like how the above picture just has a simple menu in the front fold, so the guests can appreciate the look of the other pockets. Folding the napkin horizontally makes for wider pockets which would be perfect if you have larger menus!

Feature Friday: Sequins Runners

We’re back again this Friday to feature one of our specialty linens!
Today is all about one of our runners!

Sequins Runners
Gold Sequin

As we’ve mentioned time and again, we are huge believers in sequins linens. We love the unexpected pop of sparkle on a cake or sweetheart table and think the sequins brings a “glam” aspect to any event! Including a sequin runner is an affordable way to really make your special table sparkle! Adding our gold sequins runners (shown above) on top of a basic ivory or black table linen would be the perfect addition to any table that needs that extra “pop” that tables often need!

Feature Friday: Petal Linen

It’s Feature Friday!
We can’t believe this gorgeous specialty linen hasn’t been featured yet!

Petal LinenIvory Petalamanda-hedgepeth-workshop-lesn-2847861668-OPetal Linen

Our petal linen has become a favorite specialty linens of ours! This linen is such a gorgeous addition to any event and the petal detail that takes up the whole linen often makes it a first choice for brides! The Petal linen would be the perfect addition to transform a cake table into a beautiful display, or to accentuate a sweetheart table. Adding in a gorgeous napkins or floral centerpiece would absolutely take the linen to the next level. We also love the versatility of this specialty linen. Coming in ivory, white and silver, our petal linen would be perfect for a summer or winter wedding! It never fails, this linen makes a statement and looks exquisite while doing so!

Waterford Wednesday: Formal Tables

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
If you’re anything like us, you were watching the 2015 Golden Globes this past Sunday! It was definitely a star-studded event that was filled with a mixture of gorgeous celebrities and fashion. Last year, we did a blog post on our favorite red-carpet looks of the season matched with some of our specialty linens, but this year we were focused on the elegant table settings at the Globes! The tables were super simple and very glamorous and we knew we had to take a look back at some of our very favorite elegant and formal wedding tables!

All three of these tables are absolutely breathtaking and would definitely be appropriate for an event as glamorous as the Golden Globes! When we think of elegant and very formal table settings, we automatically think of ivory, champagne, and sparkle. A show-stopping centerpiece or floral arrangement is a must and any of our specialty linens are the perfect addition! The use of plate chargers makes the table seem more “full” and definitely adds an expensive feel to the overall look of the table. The smaller details of the above tables also pull the elegant look together. Including a folded satin napkin, a menu, and water/wine glasses are just small details that can make a huge difference in the end product! We provide linens for many “simpler” weddings, but we always enjoy the more extravagant table settings!

Feature Friday: Oversized Organza Sash

It’s Feature Friday and we are excited to feature one of our many sashes!
When Waterford was still a brand new company, we solely provided chair covers and a few color of sashes, so to say that we have worked up quiet the sash collection would be an understatement! We offer many, many different color options in satin, organza, and pintuck, but today is about one sash in particular!

Oversized Organza SashPhoto Jan 08

Our Oversized Organza Sashes are some of our favorite and most gorgeous sash options! Since these particular sashes are “oversized,” they are much wider than a standard sash and oftentimes they are used on a chivari or resin chair. Instead of a standard tie, we see the oversized sashes draped over  the chairs and then cinched in the center with a jewel or something similar! We love to see these sashes at weddings that we provide linens for, and they really bring an overall elegant and classic feel to the event!

Waterford Wednesday: 2015 Wedding Color Trends

2015 is in full-swing and we hope everyone is enjoying so far!
We are certainly excited for a wonderful new year and the fresh start that comes along with it! Over the Christmas and New Year’s holiday, we saw so many couples get engaged and we even hosted a fun little Facebook contest for the best “holiday proposal” we received! With so many engagements happening, it’s only right that we have another big bridal show coming up this weekend, the Uniquely Yours Bridal Showcase!

Since this show is a kick-off to a slew of other bridal shows in the coming months, we thought it would be appropriate to refresh your memory on some crucial bridal show tips as well as some color trends you can expect to see this year. This will be the perfect opportunity to gather up some ideas before you’re thrown into all things wedding! Our 4 best tips to get the most out of your bridal show visit: be prepared, check it all out, ask questions, & enjoy! Check out our whole blog post dedicated to our tips here.

Some color trends to consider before you attend these shows. . .

Marsala

Of course Marsala, Pantone’s Color of the Year, will be a huge color trend this year. Not only is it a gorgeous color, but the sheer fact that it was named “color of the year” will certainly have brides and grooms incorporating it into their big day! Since it is such a bold color, we can totally see couples adding pops of Marsala throughout their wedding in their floral or centerpieces!

Neutrals

2 things never go out of style when talking about weddings: neutral & vintage. You just really can’t go wrong with these 2 together, and we will see neutral colors as a staple year after year. Including neutral colors throughout your wedding will create a clean, put together look that can then be emphasized with additional decor!

Aquamarine

Pantone is predicting this gorgeous shade of blue to be the “it” color of spring & summer 2015. We can only imagine that we will see this color transitioned into many weddings! Variations of blue are often popular choices for wedding colors, and we can totally see Aquamarine as the dress color for many bridesmaids!

Feature Friday: Rosetta Tie

Happy Feature Friday!
Since this our first feature of the New Year, we knew it had to be something fancy!
Instead of featuring a linen this week, today is all about one of our specialty sash tie options!

Rosetta Tiedownload

We love, love, love our Rosetta sash tie option! It’s such a different type of tie than a regular bow and it can really bring something special to a chair cover! The Rosetta Tie would be the perfect addition to your event if you’re looking for something outside of the normal and want to wow your guests. We’ve seen this particular tie used plenty of times for wedding ceremonies and it really adds an overall elegant and romantic touch to the chairs! We absolutely loved when we did the above setup using our black spandex chair covers and silver satin sashes tied in a Rosetta. We added a little twist to the tie with some of the sash hanging down and it looked stunning when all of the chairs were completed! If you’re just looking for chair covers and sashes to elevate your event, this tie would be a beautiful addition!
