Feature Friday: Crystal Clear Linens Part 5

It’s our final Feature Friday: Crystal Clear Linens post!
Rob Korb Photography captured the 5 tables that we’re going to show you today! You may remember hearing Rob’s name around the blog…he’s the one behind our amazing head shots and group shots! We were thrilled when he agreed to capture the table designs of Chesapeake Bay CateringDreams2RealityEast Beach Catering & Event PlanningSweetwater Cuisine & Touche Weddings & Events!

Charcoal Lamour | Leaf Petal Linen
unspecified-12
We loved how glamorous Chesapeake Bay Catering’s table design was and it showed off their food beautifully! Our Charcoal Lamour linen looked sleek and shiny draped as the base with our Leaf Petal Linen creating a voluminous runner down the center!

Taupe Lamour | Blue Toile Runners | Ivory Lace Overlays
unspecified-13Dreams2Reality had ALL the pretty details throughout their table design! They used our Taupe Lamour linen as the base, Ivory Lace Overlays, & topped off the design with the most beautiful Blue Toile Runners! The details that were included, from the classic bike in the corner to the suspend wheels above their table were all so thought out and brought the whole design together!

Aqua Sequins
unspecified-47
How bright and happy was the table design of East Beach Catering & Event Planning?! Our Aqua Sequins went absolutely perfect with their tropical display of food and had us feeling so cheerful from all of the vibrant colors!

Olive Shantung
unspecified-14
Sweetwater Cuisine kept their base linen, our Olive Shantung, a little more simple and let their gorgeous display of food do the talking! The bread and cracker “dip” station they had set up was definitely a crowd favorite!

White Noble Pique | White Rosa
unspecified-15
Touche Weddings & Events definitely had the most unique table setup, and we absolutely adored it! Using our White Noble Pique linen on one table, and our White Rosa on the other, Carla and her team designed an innovative and modern look!

Waterford Wednesday: Perfecting Your Place Settings

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
We’ve got a fun post today on a few simple tips that will ensure you have the perfect place settings at your next event! Whether you’re planning a wedding or any other special occasion, if the event features a meal, a place setting will be required. A place setting can be so much more than just a plate with some silverware around it; creating a visually appealing setting with a beautiful design that matches the theme of your event is simple to do! Here are some of our top suggestions for creating a one of a kind look in your place settings:

Keep A Consistent Theme

Keeping with your event’s theme is an important piece in perfecting your place settings! Staying true to the theme, whether it be a particular color, pattern or accent piece will ensure that the look of the table as a whole will be consistent and a true representation of your event. For example, the place setting above was a perfect representation of the “Coastal Copper” inspiration that the styled shoot was aiming for! The theme of your event can easily be shown through the plate chargers, napkins, etc. that you choose!

Feature A Menu

We can’t recommend this tip enough! Including a menu in your place setting will not only allow your guests to preview the meal that will be served (which they will totally appreciate!), but it also gives you the opportunity to get creative in the way you present the menu. Whether you choose to place it on top of a charger, fold it in with a napkin or incorporate it in with your centerpiece, featuring a menu is always a plus that will give your overall place setting more visual appeal!

Accent Special Place Settings

Making your guests feel welcome is always an important piece of planning an event! Adding a unique accent or personalized touch to their place setting is an excellent way to do so! Anything from a beautifully designed name card or a nice favor will distinguish each individual and leave them feeling appreciated and thought of. Emily Wedding’s place settings at A Crystal Clear Vision tied in with her theme perfectly and had so many little thoughtful elements that anyone would have loved to be a guest at her event!

Feature Friday: Crystal Clear Linens Part 4

We’re back again for Feature Friday: Crystal Clear Linens!
Part 4 this week is all about the tables that Amanda Manupella Photography captured: DIY Bridal NetworkEvents by JacklynEverly After EventsSoirees by Lauren!

Slate Polyester | Ivory Aphrodite
unspecified-9
The DIY Bridal Network described their table design as “romantic, rustic & boho” and we couldn’t agree more! Using our Slate Polyester linen and Ivory Aphrodite linen they completely nailed their look! The pop of color from the deep red napkin on top of the gold beaded charges was the perfect touch!

Satin Champagne Blush | Ivory Victorian Lace Runners
unspecified-10It was all about Georgia peaches and southern charm on Events by Jacklyn’s table! Our Satin Champagne Blush linen and Ivory Victorian Lace Runners were the perfect choice to add to this gorgeous design! The details that were included, such as cross-stitched table numbers and monogrammed napkins were some of our favorites!

Eggplant Leaf Petal
unspecified-24
Everly After Events medieval style table design was absolutely gorgeous! Our Eggplant Leaf Petal linen went so perfectly with the dark and mysterious feel of the table, and we loved how the florals added a brightness to the table, yet were still darker colors!

Black Tinsel | Sequin Medallion Overlay
unspecified-39
We’ve talked a lot about our Sequin Medallion Overlay that Soirees by Lauren used on their table design! The patterned linen complemented the “prohibition” theme that they were going for perfectly!

Waterford Wednesday: Blush & Gold Styled Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We’ve got a beautiful Blush & Gold styled shoot to share with you all today! Blush is one of our absolute favorite colors to see used at weddings and this styled shoot, photographed by Diana Gordon Photography, definitely did not disappoint! Check out some of our favorite shots of the reception table setting and ceremony setting!

There was so much versatility in this particular styled shoot; with a ceremony setup, reception setup and indoor/outdoor shots that it felt like a real wedding! We absolutely loved all of the linens and products that the styled shoot coordinators, M&T Wedding and Events, decided on. On the reception table design, our gold sequin linen was used as the main linen with a simple blush table runner going down the center of the table. We think that the star of the table design was the place setting…our solid gold and gold beaded plate chargers were used with our blush napkins in a tri-fold draping off the end! We were also excited about the fact that our new gold chiavari chairs were used in this styled shoot! We’ve been obsessed with these beauties since they arrived in March and we can’t wait to see them used this wedding season! Head to Diana Gordon Photography’s blog to check out more pictures from the shoot and to see a full vendor list.

Feature Friday: Crystal Clear Linens Part 3

It’s another Feature Friday: Crystal Clear Linens post!
This week we are excited to share the linen details on the 4 tables that Kirstyn Marie Photography captured: Cherry Blossom Planning FactoryEllasin’s EventsFluttering Flowers, & Morlina Events!

Charcoal Panama
unspecified-6
We LOVE a good theme, and Cherry Blossom Planning Factory nailed their “Hipster Garden Party” inspired table! They used our Charcoal Panama linen as the base of their table and then had the cutest assortment of hipster-ish details sprinkled throughout…even a little dinosaur!

Gold Ribbon Sequins | Gold Sequins | Slate Polyester
unspecified-6Ellasin’s Events layered their table to perfection using three of our linens: Gold Ribbon Sequins on the top, Slate Polyester in the middle, and Gold Sequins peaking through at the bottom! Layering linens is becoming a super popular trend (we even blogged about it here!) and we love how Ellasin designed her table so that you only see all three of the linens on the sides of the table…it’s a fun little surprise!

Charcoal Polyester | Champagne Florence Overlays
unspecified-7
We still can’t get over how gorgeous all of Fluttering Flowers florals were on their table design! We love the embroidered Champagne Florence Overlays that they chose to place over top of our Charcoal Polyester linen!

Gold Sequins
unspecified-8
Morlina Events used one of our very favorite linens…Gold Sequins! She had her signature pops of pink in her florals on the table and had the perfect place setting for two!

Waterford Wednesday: 3 Ways To Use Patterned Linens

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
A couple weeks ago, we talked all about wedding season inspiration and some different trends we hope to see this year. One of the trends we mentioned was the use of patterned linens! We’ve seen patterned linens pop up at a few of our recent weddings and even a few of our A Crystal Clear Vision participants added these creative linens to their designs! There are SO many innovative and unique ways to use patterned linens in table designs, but today we’re highlighting 3 simple ways that will make a huge impact and look stunning!

Napkins
View More: http://sarahstreetphotography.pass.us/vendor-gallery-fretz-wedding-2015Photographer: Sarah Street Photography
Napkins are one of the easiest ways to add color and creative details to a table, so adding a pattern seems like a perfect option! The black & white wedding that we featured a couple months ago is one of our favorite examples of how a patterned napkin can really elevate an otherwise simple table design!

Table Runners
unspecified-5Photographer: Rob Korb Photography // Design: Dreams 2 Reality
Table runners are similar to table linens in the sense that they are there to provide the base for your whole table and the various smaller details you place on top of them. The options for table runners are endless, but why not use a pattern?! A patterned runner will instantly add a stunning visual appeal to your table and also allows you to go a little more simple on the rest of your table details (napkins, full length linen, etc!).
PS: Check back on Feature Friday to get the deats on this gorgeous linen that Dreams 2 Reality used at #thecrystalclearevent!

Overlays & Full Length Linens
unspecified-45Photographer: Amanda Manupella Photography // Design: Soirees by Lauren
We’ve mentioned this amazing sequin geometric linen a lot over the past few weeks, but we just can’t get over it! Another easy way to incorporate a patterned linen in your table design is to just go for it with an overlay or full length linen! There are so many different patterned linen options available now that nearly every color scheme or theme can be accommodated! Soirees by Lauren went with a “prohibition theme” for her table design above, but patterned linens are definitely NOT just for themed events!

Feature Friday: Crystal Clear Linens Part 2

We’re back for Feature Friday!
Last week we gave you all the linen details on the first couple of tables at A Crystal Clear Vision. This week it’s all about the 4 tables that Amanda Hedgepeth Photography captured: Botanique EventsEmily WeddingsJamie Leigh Events & Kelsey Ann Events!

Blush Petal | Champagne Satin | Blush Floral Lace Overlay
unspecified-48
Botanique Events table design used one of our favorite colors: blush; and was layered to perfection with three of our linens! Our Blush Petal linen served as the base, providing texture and volume, and our Champagne Satin and Blush Floral Lace Overlay were placed on top! We love how delicate and airy the lace linen looks on top!

White Organza | Ivory Aphrodite | Ivory Rosette on Mesh
unspecified-4The winner of ALL 3 of the awards at A Crystal Clear Vision, Emily Weddings, used our linens to bring her vision of the outdoors in! Our Ivory Rosette on Mesh linen served as the base with our White Organza linen draped over top! The volume and texture of the Rosette linen was the perfect choice to draw attention to the table, yet it didn’t take away from the magnificent tree (literally!) that was hanging overhead.

Navy Majestic
unspecified-2
Jamie Leigh Events used our Navy Majestic linen and it paired SO well with the purple and gold details that she used throughout her table design. How cute are those gold artichoke place card holders?! Our Majestic linens have a slight textured appearance that we just adore and make a big impact on a table setting!

Khaki Majestic
unspecified-3
How elegant did Kelsey Ann Events “French Chateau” inspired table look?! She hit her theme right on the mark, and our Khaki Majestic linen provided the perfect base for her table design! We love the amount of thought she put into every little detail to make her inspiration come to life!

Waterford Wednesday: Romantic Garden Styled Shoot

It’s Waterford Wednesday, friends!
If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile you know that styled shoots are one of our favorite ways to see our linens showcased! When you add in the fact that this particular styled shoot used “Romantic Garden” to describe the concept, we are ALL for it! Heart’s Content Events and Design totally nailed the concept with the most romantic details and touches of varying shades of pink! We’ll let the gorgeous photos by Kimberly Florence Photography do the talking!HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-211HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-135HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-142HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-117HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-154HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-46HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-34HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-30We can’t get over how beautiful everything turned out! Of course, the Hermitage Museum & Gardens was the perfect location to provide a gorgeous backdrop to make our linens and the rest of the decor really stand out! We absolutely loved all of the whimsical touches and the pink and green pastel colors sprinkled throughout the ceremony and table set up! Of course, any styled shoot that has a model in a BLUSH wedding dress is bound to be amazing, right?! Check out Glamour & Grace for more photos!

Feature Friday: Crystal Clear Linens Part 1

It’s Feature Friday, y’all!
We are so excited about these next couple of Feature Friday posts because we’ll be detailing the various linens that were used on each of the tablescapes at A Crystal Clear Vision! We had 5 amazing photographers capture the event, so to avoid picture and information overload, we are going to separate the posts by photographer. First up are the tables that Caitlin Gerres Photography captured: Antonia Christianson Events, As You Wish, Marlene EventsPalette of Petals & Waterford Event Rentals

Blue Ombre Polyester
unspecified-49We like the ombre trend in fashion and hair, so it’s a no-brainer that we ADORE ombre when it involves linens! The Blue Ombre Polyester linen that Antonia Christianson Events used brought her “Coastal Virginia” inspired table together so beautifully!

Silver Lamour | Black Polyester Runners | Painted Daisy Overlayunspecified-50As You Wish used three of our linens and the combination was so unique and fun! Our Silver Lamour linen was used as the base, Black Polyester Runners draped each end of the table, and our Painted Daisy Overlay brought a bright and fun accent to the center of the table!

Ivory Satin | Champagne Paisley Sequins
unspecified-51Marlene Events table was so ethereal and romantic! She utilized our Ivory Satin linen as the base linen for her table and then draped this beautiful Champagne Paisley Sequins linen on top! The lighter color palette just looks SO dreamy, right?!

Charcoal Velvet & Charcoal Twistunspecified-52How beautiful and mysterious did Palette of Petals “Anne Rice – New Orleans” inspired table look? You can see our Charcoal Twist linen peaking out at the bottom and our Charcoal Velvet linen draped on top! Velvet + a linen = so.much.yes!

White Satin Table Skirt | Grey Stripe Sequin Overlay
unspecified-53If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram you know that we’re big fans of grey stripes (hint: check out our new work van!), so it only made sense that we used our Grey Stripe Sequin Overlay on our personal table design! Our gathered White Satin Table Skirt provided the perfect amount of volume underneath!
