Waterford Wednesday: 1 Linen, 3 Ways

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
Can you believe that October is already almost over? This month completely flew by for us, as we were super busy with design meetings and so many events! We are super excited for the holiday season that is approaching and can’t wait to be a part of many more weddings and holiday parties! For our final Waterford Wednesday of October we decided to do another “1 Linen, 3 Ways” post, this time featuring one of our favorite specialty linens. . .Rosette on Mesh!
| Kirstyn Marie Photography | Vintage Lace and Blush SequinsHow gorgeous is this simple, yet elegant table setting that Kirstyn Marie Photography captured from a styled shoot earlier this year? The Rosette linen is the statement piece of the table, yet it isn’t “too much” or overpowering any of the other components! We also love how the Rosette linen is flowing out instead of tucked under the table!
Ah! The bright and happy colors of this styled shoot by Amanda Hedgepeth Photography make us smile! The crisp white of this particular Rosette linen pairs beautifully with the hint of pink that the overlay underneath brings! The design options are endless with this particular linen!
10422272_908042515914709_5787854628226556205_nOf course, we are always huge fans of our Rosette linen on guest tables! The heavily textured linen brings such an interesting element to a guest table, as opposed to just a traditional white/black/ivory linen. Dragon Photography Studio captured our Rosette linen perfectly, showing that this linen doesn’t need an extravagant floral or a ton of other elements on the table to make it beautiful!

Feature Friday: Chiffon Sashes

Happy Feature Friday friends!
Today we are excited to feature our beautiful Chiffon Sashes!
View More: http://leighskaggs.pass.us/jennabob-wedding2015-06-24_0083Our Chiffon Sashes are one of our absolute favorite sash options that we have! These beauties create such an elegant and romantic feel and really can become a “wow” piece  at weddings. Many of our brides who rent our Chiffon Sashes opt to go with the weaved tie option through a chiavari chair, which looks very intricate, adding to the appeal!

Waterford Wednesday: Blush & Berry Styled Shoot

It’s a happy Waterford Wednesday here at our offices!
Today we’ve got some amazing shots from a styled shoot to share with everyone! We teased a few of the pictures on our Facebook page, and you may have seen the feature on Fab You Bliss blog, but we just had to share on our blog because we just loved how our linens and chairs looked in this blush & berry styled shoot!

We just loved being a part of this beautiful styled shoot! The berry & blush color tones together were just gorgeous and of course, we are obsessed with our linens and white chiavari chairs that were chosen! This particular styled shoot was done at The Water Table, so our chiavari chairs were already on-site just waiting for our satin blush sashes to be tied on them! Our ribbon sequins linen had the right amount of sparkle for the styled sweetheart table and we can’t get over the nice hint of gold our beaded chargers brought to the table! Beautiful things happen when you put top notch vendors together, that’s for sure! Head to Fab You Bliss to check out the feature!

Waterford Wednesday: A Day With Rebecca

Happy Wednesday, friends!
We’ve got a super fun Waterford Wednesday post for you today! Remember last summer when we put together our video, “A Day With Waterford,” where we followed some of our event staff girls through a setup and breakdown? Well, today we’re excited to share “A Day With Rebecca!” Our amazing General Manager, Rebecca Norfleet, took some snapshots of her Tuesday so everyone could get a little “inside look” into her world of all things Waterford!

We’ve been super busy lately, so Tuesday started off with a peaceful drive to the office before the craziness of the day began. . .those beautiful Chesapeake back roads never get old! Check out that overview of Rebecca’s scheduled meetings and events for October. . .absolutely insane! If you follow us on Instagram, you saw the happy mail we received today with our The Knot Hall of Fame award, and of course, no day at the Waterford office is complete without some client design consultations. We love the classic black and white colors this bride was going for!

image2After the busy morning, a surprise flower delivery and organizing papers on our new shelving {keep up with our new office progress at #waterfordofficeupgrade} was on the agenda! We always have a few random specialty linens hanging around after client meetings, and todays culprit was our black Rosette!

image4Tuesday’s always end on a high note when you get to prep some gorgeous neutral and sparkly linens for a sweet Woman’s Club of Portsmouth bride and attend a #757TuesdaysTogether at Bluebird’s Garage! We love joining all of these various creatives as we chat and encourage one another with the “community over competition” mindset!

Feature Friday: Ivory Pinchwheel

Welcome back to another edition of Feature Friday!
We just got some gorgeous pictures back from a styled shoot we were a part of {and that was featured on Glamour and Grace!} and we couldn’t wait to feature our Ivory Pinchwheel linen that was used!

Our Pinchwheel specialty linen comes in a variety of other colors including white + champagne and is slightly textured which creates a beautiful overall look. We’ve seen this linen used on guests tables, “special” tables {such as a cake table} and even cocktail tables. Our Pinchwheel linen is one of our favorite versatile specialty linens!

Waterford Wednesday: Statement Table Runners

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
This past weekend was absolutely crazy and we’re gearing up for another equally busy wedding weekend! If you missed our Facebook post yesterday, we’ve also been super busy with some exciting things that we can’t wait to share with you all starting on Thursday! Before we can share our news, we thought we’d do a post on one of our favorite {and easy!} ways to spruce up any table: table runners! This wedding season has been all about the specialty table linens, but table runners are a wonderful way to incorporate your event color without having to use a full length specialty linen. Here are some of our favorite, fun table runners:

Rosette on Mesh
View More: http://leighskaggs.pass.us/jennabob-weddingNot only is our Rosette on Mesh gorgeous in a full length linen, but we adore it as a runner too! There are so many ways to utilize this runner, whether it be understated with a basic table linen as the base or more glamorous with a sequin linen as the base. Either way, the Rosette runner brings the perfect amount of texture to the table!

Navy + White Stripe
Nautical+Virginia+Beach+Wedding-155_WEB
Our Navy + White Stripe runners are always a favorite for our nautical and beach loving brides! These particular table linens are so versatile as well and often serve as the “pop” or “wow” piece of the table setting due to the pattern. Remember last June when we blogged about a nautical styled shoot that featured these gorgeous runners? 

Sequins

There’s no way we could forget about our sequins table runners! We could go on and on about our love of all things sequins, but the linens speak for themselves! We love the way that our sequins runners can transform a basic white table linen into a glamorous table setting. If you’re looking for that little touch of sparkle, our sequins table runners provide just the right amount!

Feature Friday: Glamping Baby Shower

Happy Feature Friday friends!
We’re so excited to “feature” a very special baby shower that we were a part of a few days ago! Not only did we provide linens for this gorgeous “glamping” themed baby shower, but we also attended as guests! We absolutely love the close relationships we have with Hampton Roads wedding industry people and we couldn’t be more excited for the mama to be, Michelle Kilgore of Blue Steel Lighting Design. We’ve always adored Michelle, but our relationship with her really strengthened after our A Crystal Clear Vision Event and we were thrilled to be a part of this very special day! Check out these shots from Echard Wheeler Photography.

Wasn’t everything just beautiful?! No detail was left undone thanks to the brilliant coordinating of Antonia Christianson Events. . .there was even a teepee and canoe to bring the “glamping” theme full circle! There were about 80 industry women that gathered to celebrate Michelle and a top notch cast of vendors that transformed The Water Table into “Camp JTK Jr.” Chef by Design provided the lovely “camp inspired” food, Isha Foss put together all of the flowers, and those yummy cake pops and cake were by Patti Cakes! Waterford provided the linens, and we LOVED the mixture of our grey and white chevron poly table linens with coral poly napkins and the solid grey poly table linens! We were also excited to use our white chivari chairs that we store at The Water Table!
