Waterford Wednesday: Enchanted Woodland Birthday

We’re back again for Waterford Wednesday!
We are just SO excited about the post we’re sharing with you today! One of the things that we talk a lot about is how linens can really transform ANY event. Whether it’s a wedding reception, bridal luncheon, baby shower or birthday party, adding linens into your table designs will immediately elevate your event as a whole. We recently got to be a part of the cutest 1st Birthday/Baptism Party and we just got the gorgeous photos back from David Schwartz Photography! Check out some of our favorites below:

The amount of detail poured into this party was just amazing! The main dessert table had the most intricate backdrop that went perfectly with the “Enchanted Woodland” theme of the party. The party featured our specialty Leaf Petal Linens throughout, and the texture and color really brought every detail together! As you can see from some of the photos we shared, there was no area or detail left untouched, and we absolutely loved how the theme and many of the details were “kid appropriate,” yet it felt upscale and sophisticated for the adults as well!

Waterford Wednesday: Spring Events Style

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
It’s been a busy month for us so far and all we keep thinking about is the rhyme, April showers bring May flowers! Mother nature seems to be a tad confused on that second part, but there’s no stopping us from fawning over all the spring event themes and decor! Slowly, but surely, the temperatures are warming up and the fresh blooms and lighter color palettes are taking over!

Check out some of our favorite springtime styled shoots that we’ve been a part of lately!Fab-You-Bliss-Wedding-Blog-Mai-Fotography-Sea-Glass-Coastal-Romantic-Wedding-03Fab-You-Bliss-Wedding-Blog-Mai-Fotography-Sea-Glass-Coastal-Romantic-Wedding-29How gorgeous is this romantic sea glass inspired styled shoot that Mai Fotography captured?! Our linen, in seamist, was used on the table and was the perfect shade of green/blue to match the beach backdrop! The whole shoot, featured on Fab You Bliss, had us thinking of the warm spring and summer days ahead! Check out the feature for a full list of the top notch vendors that were involved!

Water-Table-Coastal-Copper-Inspired-Wedding-by-Elizabeth-Friske-Photography_0057Water-Table-Coastal-Copper-Inspired-Wedding-by-Elizabeth-Friske-Photography_0029This coastal copper inspired styled shoot is another recent favorite of ours! Light blues, teals and other varying shades of blue are SO popular right now, and we are loving every second of it! Our Austrian Wave linen, in white, was the perfect addition to create some texture and a crisp looking design! Head over to Elizabeth Friske Photography, the amazing photographer behind these shots, to see more photos along with a full vendor list!

JDE_Branding-0120_zpsdkl5xyn4Earlier this year we were so excited and honored to be a part of Just Dandy Events branding shoot! Elizabeth Henson Photos captured all of the gorgeous images, and we had serious heart eyes (you know, the emoji kind!) over the color palette and vision as a whole! Again, the varying shades of blues and greens just screamed “spring!” to us. Our napkins, table runner, sashes & white chiavari chairs were all used in this stunning design! Check out the awesome vendors here!

Waterford Wednesday: Ways To Use Lace

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
Wedding season is officially here and we are so pumped for the crazy busy and exciting summer ahead! Since May is when “busy season” really kicks off in the wedding industry, we knew that we had to have a great linen special, so of course we chose LACE! Lace is such a sophisticated and versatile fabric that it can really be utilized in some way, no matter what your theme is! Whether it’s a romantic tablescape, or a rustic/antique style design, you can’t go wrong with lace! In honor of our May linen special, here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate lace!

Layering

One of the easiest ways to incorporate lace into your table design is to layer! Remember how we talked all about layering linens in this post? You can use the same concept of adding multiple layers, but including lace on the top, bottom, or even the middle! The picture above of our lace overlay draped over top of our gold overlay and ivory table linen will always be a favorite image of ours showing how classic and timeless lace is!

Stand Alone

Unlike most fabrics, lace is one of the few that can stand completely alone on a table. Depending on the theme of your event, lace can be utilized as the one and only linen, with no linen placed under it. In a setting where a wooden style table is being used (such as above) the idea of using just a lace linen is a perfect option that can enhance the theme you’re going for!

Sashes

Incorporating lace in your chair sashes is another way to utilize this gorgeous fabric! Whether you decide to use the lace sash on its own, or layer it with a solid color satin or organza sash, your chairs will look delicate and elegant with this added touch!
