Sprucing Up Your Guest Tables Using Farm Tables

In case you haven’t already heard- we have farm tables!!!!!! These new, beautiful farm tables can really be the focal point when it comes to designing your reception area. The tables are new to us this year and we get so excited every time we get to take these out for an event. The farm tables can be used for your king’s table, sweetheart table, cake table, or whatever you can think of!

In July, we hosted our very first Summer Social bridal event! And what better way to decorate our table than with one of our beautiful farm tables and gold chiavari chairs. This farm table was accessorized using our coral chiffon runners and succulents for center pieces. The theme of this year’s Summer Social was sunset ombre so we wanted to make sure we incorporated all of those fun colors in our table and we did that through the napkins.

We had so much fun designing this table and being able to use napkins in lots of different fabrics and folding styles gives you an idea of the endless possibilities when designing your guest tables! The farm tables are a beautiful addition to your reception and are sure to be a conversation starter!

We just loveeee the way our farm tables look after all the things have been added. This look is from our 2019 Crystal Clear Vision table at the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth. The farm table is simple and elegant with the white chiffon runners and beautiful gold beaded glass chargers. We love the sleek and romantic look of this guest table with a small pop of color in the menu card and napkin.

Zooming out from the place setting allows you to see how the farm table looks in all its glory! The centerpieces used were small and simple allowing the farm table to be the center of attention. We love this farm table paired with our white chiavari chairs and the champagne chiffon sashes complement the chiffon runners perfectly. If you are interested in the farm tables being the stand out piece of your reception area, it doesn’t take much to give them a beautiful, polished look that your guests will never forget. This design goes hand and hand with the simple & natural look of the farm tables and the earthy colors of the plants and place settings is one to die for!

We are OBSESSED with the way Touche’ Event Design & Production transformed our farm tables at Raven and Dane’s wedding this summer! If you plan on having a king’s table at your wedding, the farm table is the perfect way to make sure your bridal party stands out. The design on the farm table is super simple and every aspect of color used on this table matches each other perfectly. We love the romantic look the organza runner gives us paired with the incredible white flowers used in the center pieces.

Waterford Wednesday: Bridal Show Season

Happy Waterford Wednesday friends!
Today we are super pumped to talk about bridal shows! When you’re in the wedding and event industry, you’ll often hear people refer to different points in the year as “seasons.” You know…wedding season, booking season, slow season, etc. Well, we’ve been gearing up for bridal show season! While you could probably find a few bridal shows going on throughout the year, the large majority of the shows happen between January-March. This time frame is sort of considered the “off-season” for most wedding and event professionals and the time when they are eager to meet and book potential clients for the year! We absolutely love bridal shows and meeting sweet new brides and clients who want to utilize our linens for their big day!

What Bridal Shows Should I Attend?
Obviously, you HAVE to check out the A Crystal Clear Vision event (exciting details to come!), but check out this awesome list of 2016 bridal shows in Hampton Roads. You can’t go wrong in attending any of these shows and you will definitely find the best of the best Hampton Roads vendors! VOW Bridal Show is always a huge event…remember when Waterford won Best in Show & People’s Choice Awards?!

Should I Bring Anything?
Yes, pre-printed address labels! Nearly every vendor will ask for your contact information in order to enter you into a drawing to win a special prize or discount on their services! Additionally, if you decide to use a particular vendor right then and there, they will need your contact information to set up a meeting or to send you more information. Trust us, you do NOT want to write down your name and email address hundreds of times!

How Much Time Will I Spend at Bridal Show?
Honestly, the amount of time you will end up spending at a bridal show is really dependent on how many vendors you’re looking to see. If you already have over half of your wedding vendors locked down, you will obviously spend way less time than someone who has none! We think 2-3 hours is a good time estimate. This will give you enough time to visit with many vendors to see the endless options you have!

Who Should I Bring With Me?
This can be a tricky decision! Personally, we recommend keeping your bridal show posse on the smaller side…maybe just you and 2 other people. You will probably want to invite those that are actually in your wedding party or people that have been heavily involved in helping you plan! These are the people that will be able to offer their opinions and thoughts about the manymany choices you will have in front of you!
