Waterford Wednesday: Let’s Talk Napkins!

Let’s talk napkins!
We’ve done a couple of Waterford Wednesday posts on napkins – like the different folds you can use and some napkin inspiration to add creativity to your table, but today is all about the “why” behind napkins! Why do we think they are such an important element to your table design? Why should you definitely utilize napkins at your place settings? Check out some of our top reasons:

Pop of Color!

One of the top reasons that we are huge advocates for napkins is the pop of color that they can potentially bring to your table! If your table design is mostly neutrals, but you want a nice accent color added in to your theme, a colorful napkin is the way to go! Waterford has a HUGE inventory of napkins (seriously, check out our storage!) in many different colors, so finding the perfect shade would be no issue!

If you’ve been following our blog for awhile, you know that we are all about mixing and matching linen textures! Adding a basic satin or polyester napkin to a table design that has a heavily textured linen can really make for stunning look! We loved how our Royal Blue Polyester Napkins looked on top of our Champagne Payette Sequins linen!

Not only can napkins provide a pop of color at your table, but they can also serve as an interesting accessory! There are so many different ways to “dress up” your napkins – from a pretty fold, to napkin rings, or even incorporating a menu or thank you note inside!
Waterford Tip: If you’re looking for an intricate napkin fold, make sure you’re choosing a fabric that will work!

One of the great things about napkins is that they are a very inexpensive rental that can make a huge difference on your table! With prices starting as low as $.55, you can’t turn away from investing in napkins that can take your table design to the next level! If you’re on a budget and not interested in some of the more expensive specialty linens, napkins are the perfect alternative!

Waterford Wednesday: Elegant Sequin Styled Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
Remember a couple weeks ago when we posted our Event Style Inspiration, where we talked about extravagant & glamorous versus simple & classic table designs? We gave you a sneak peek of a gorgeous elegant sequin table design photographed by Lauren Simmons Photography, and today we’re excited to show you more from this styled shoot at The Obici House! This particular shoot was a team effort by some of the top vendors in Hampton Roads at the Rising Tide Society Tuesday’s Together. Check out some of our favorite shots:

The sequin linen in this design steals the shows and gives the table an upscale, glamorous and expensive feel! The pop of teal in the chair sashes and satin napkins creates a nice contrast from the vibrant sequin full length linen. We love when Hampton Roads vendors come together to create innovative and exciting designs! Check out Lauren Simmons Photography blog post to see more images from this shoot!
