Summer Stripes With A Hint of Green

We hope you are staying warm as we get into that chilly fall/winter time frame. With the weather getting colder we’ve been thinking more and more about some of our favorite summer weddings! We are taking it back to a wedding we were a part of a while back at the Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club. Laura was not afraid to step outside the box and we are still obsessed with the outcome!

Laura chose to keep the color scheme classic and let the black and white stripes do their magic! Her head table consisted of our black and white striped runner with white polyester napkins under gold glass beaded chargers and gold chiavari chairs. It’s safe to say this head table is bringing back all the summer feels.

A close up of her place setting gives you a little hint of that greenery in the menu card that really sets everything off. If you haven’t thought of a polished way to reel in all of your wedding colors yet- we highly suggest doing so with your menu cards. It’s the perfect way to show your guests that you have thought about every single detail to make your big day one you have always dreamed of!

For the guest tables, Laura chose a white polyester linen paired with a black and white stripe napkin. We love that she used these super fun napkins to contrast the striped runners used on her head table.

Laura had a beautiful reception with all of her details pairing together perfectly. It didn’t take much for her to achieve a summer vibe at her wedding- just some stripes and awesome greenery!

We look forward to meeting with all of our future brides and making your wish come true. Schedule an appointment today to see all our showroom has to offer and more.

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.

Waterford Wednesday: Jess & Joey Williamsburg Wedding

Since we are still on “cloud 9” from our Valentine’s Day adventures, we want to share with you this week a wedding that truly displayed L-O-V-E to the max!  Every small detail and candid photo from Jess and Joey’s wedding in November at the Williamsburg Inn in Colonial Williamsburg proved to be nothing less than lovely.  Their choice of natural greenery along with touches of blush and bursts of rustic decor made this an unforgettable day for their guests AND the bride and groom without-a-doubt!  Take a look at some of our absolute favorites from Jess and Joey’s Williamsburg wedding:

Wow!  What a spectacular wedding this was from start to finish!  By choosing to use our Blush Table Napkins with touches of greenery and wood throughout, Jess and Joey completed their rustic “Tribe” look.  The pops of gold and green from their table decor along with their choice to stick with a neutralized palette truly added a certain level of sophistication that the Williamsburg’s area requires.

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?
