Waterford Wednesday: Pottery Print Linen

Spring is right around the corner and, with that, comes the blooming of flowers.  For this week’s Linen Spotlight, we chose to feature a more unique, traditional piece from our collection.  By highlighting many floral patterns and soft shades of blue, the Pottery Print proves to be a solid choice for your focal point of your event.  Whether your goal is to draw your guests’ attention to your Sweetheart table, Cake table, or even the VIP guest’s table, this linen is truly the way to go.

One of our fav pics of this linen actually is a throwback to A Crystal Clear 2017, where A Lively Affair collaborated with us to make this gorgeous display:

Afraid to use patterned material at your wedding?  Brides magazine encourages brides and party hosts alike to add the right touch of color and pattern to your event (“How to Use Linens to Take Your Weddings to the Next Level“).  By doing just this, you enhance your guests’ as well as yourself’s overall experience.  Specifically, “Just like in fashion, mixing linen patterns and textures can really enhance your wedding’s design. Think in threes: dominant, subdominant and neutral.  Start with a bold (dominant) pattern to define your palette. From there, choose a smaller-scale (subdominant) pattern with the same colors. Finally, pull in a neutral solid to allow for a visual rest.”  In this particular design, the dominant color can be royal blue found in this Pottery Print, with the subdominant being a darker shade of blue, and the neutral being white/gold.

If you are leaning towards a more subtle design for your special day but still want to add a bit of flair, look no further than renting the Pottery Print linen in napkins, runners, sashes, or overlays.

Waterford Wednesday: Spring 2019 Trends

Happy March, our Waterford friends!  Spring is right around the corner, with only 14 days until it’s official start on the calendar.  With warmer weather and flowers beginning to bloom over the next few months, new trends for dinner parties and weddings are beginning to come forth as well.  This week on Waterford Wednesday we want to share with you the top “looks” for all Spring 2019 social events, whether it be a small, intimate get-together or a large wedding celebration.  Uniquely-enough, all of these designs and vendors on the blog today are from our 2019’s A Crystal Clear Vision!  That’s right, folks.  In case you missed our one-of-a-kind wedding show, here’s your first look at some of our beautiful creations and collaborations:

Black Accents

Any bride or party host shooting for a “chic” look, may want to consider adding touches of black to their tablescape.  Simply said, the contrast and depth that this specific color adds to the decor can in many ways create a higher level of elegance and debonair to the overall atmosphere of the event.

Velvet Linen

If you are seeking to create a warm, cozy atmosphere for your special day, velvet linen is the way to go.  With this particular linen being complimentary to almost any palette of colors, your options are essentially endless.  In general, thicker fabrics that are stark (like velvet) in comparison to the light, airy linens that we have seen in the past will encourage much richness and texture to your tablescape as a whole.

Greenery

As in 2018, greenery is continuing in its trend to be an organic choice for centerpieces at weddings and dinner parties alike.  The authenticity of this day and age parallels this natural “look”.  Similarly, as indoor venues continue to be an option that many brides and hosts lean towards, this greenery foliage is a great and cost-effective way to bring the outdoors in.

Pastels

Soft touches of blush, celadon green, lavendar, beige, and sky blue will definitely make its returned debut in Spring of 2019.  In combination with lots of greenery and metallic, the earthy, marbled “look” you are going for will ultimately be brought to life.  As in the past, pastels are a safe choice for wedding decor; however, in 2019, these colors will be paired with bold accents of organic and metallic, adding unique dimension to your traditional design.

Vibrant and Bold

Wanting to make a statement at your 2019 Spring event?  Well, this trend is for you!  This bold and the vibrant “look” is new as an option for a sophisticated client, seeking to create that “wow” factor that so many brides and hosts are desiring now-a-days.  Ditching the rigid color palette for a variety of complementary shades alongside velvet proves to be a contender for the Spring’s best weddings.
