Waterford Wednesday: Statement Table Runners

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
Today’s post is all about one of our favorite {and easy!} ways to spruce up any table: table runners! We talk a lot about our love of specialty table linens, but table runners are a wonderful way to incorporate your event color without having to use a full length specialty linen – win, win! Here are some of our favorite, fun table runners:

We just adore our black + white striped table runners! One thing we love about these particular runners is how versatile they are – they look great on their own, or they can enhance a table design with a base linen as well!

Not 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!

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.

Our macrame runners are one of our new favorites! We used these beauties on our Waterford tabletop design at one of our ILEA meetings, and our visions of boho meets southern charm was brought to life with the macrame runners!

Waterford Wednesday: Norfolk Botanical Gardens Weddings

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends! We’re excited for today’s post – it’s filled with a lot of pretty! We recently got pictures from Luke and Ashley Photography from a wedding we provided linens for at Norfolk Botanical Gardens and they are absolutely stunning! Norfolk Botanical Gardens is such a gorgeous venue and this couple definitely took advantage of the beautiful surroundings.
Such a beautiful and BRIGHT wedding! We loved how crisp, clean, and classic everything looked – a lighter color scheme really creates a whimsical and romantic setting that is perfect for a wedding! Of course we have to talk about how adorable CJ + Christie’s dog is! Anytime a couple can incorporate their furry family members, we are game! The solid linens on the guest tables matched with our glass chargers and tri-folded napkins made for a perfect place setting, and the specialty linen on the sweetheart table set it apart nicely! Make sure to check out more pictures on Luke and Ashley Photography’s blog post!
