Looking Back on Our Crystal Clear 2019 Wedding Giveaway

Have you seen our 2019 Crystal Clear Wedding Giveaway Winner?! We love being able to give back to one lucky bride every year! This year, Alexa chose to do white polyester linens with satin wisteria napkins over our gold acrylic chargers to really tie everything all together at the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth.

To make the head tables stand out, she chose our gold sequin linens topped with wisteria napkins and gold chargers. The napkins add such a beautiful contrast and the floral designs really captures every aspect of her color scheme.

A huge thank you to all the vendors that offer their services once a year at our Crystal Clear Vision show! Rusty Cottage provided the cutest cake table that is actually a refurbished door! Soirees By Lauren did an amazing job coordinating this event with us. We can’t wait for next year!

Congratulations again to Alexa & Zach! We wish you a marriage filled with love and laughter! If you are newly engaged or know anyone that is, we highly recommend buying tickets for the 2020 Crystal Clear Vision in hopes you may be next year’s winner. We are thrilled to host this year’s Crystal Clear Vision at the Princess Anne Country Club on February 9, 2020 ! Stay tuned for links on where you can purchase your tickets, coming very soon.

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.

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.

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.

Spring 2019 is going to be one for the books, proving to be a mixture of the past and present.  What design from our collection was your fav?  Let us know in the comments section below!

Waterford Wednesday: Champagne Sequins Linen

Happy Waterford Wednesday friends!

A Crystal Clear 2019 (CC 2019) made it’s annual debut on Sunday and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with how the entire event went!  From the choice of linens used by each vendor to even the small touches of personality that were present throughout, it was one for the books to say the least!  We hope you were there for our biggest show of the year.

If you unfortunately didn’t have the opportunity to join us for CC 2019, we want to share with you this week on our Linen Spotlight one of our most used linens, which also happened to be featured on Sunday.  Our Champagne Sequins linen truly is a breathtaking yet classic choice for a necessary “wow” factor to be added to your event.  Check it out for yourself below:

From table runners, to floor length table linens and even napkins, we can definitely fulfill your sequin needs with this special linen!  Specifically, this bright, metallic linen can be featured year-round, highlighting any special table at your event (i.e. your Sweetheart Table) or better yet, every table!  The options and combinations are almost limitless with our Champagne Sequins.  If you might be questioning such a bold choice of linen, think no further than pairing it with a soft overlay and greenery, as pictured above.  This will dial down the radiance but yet still add some uniqueness to your chosen tables.

Where would you use our Champagne Sequin linen at:  Wedding?  Birthday extravaganza? Gala event?
