Bold Linens

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
As we sit here hoping that our beautiful summer and fall weddings get to happen we thought about the amazing tables you can incorporate to your reception space! At many of the events we are a part of, most commonly we see the cocktail tables getting used as a super fun linen filled with texture, color, and personality. We’re here to tell you, you can accomplish that look on more than just your cocktail tables. Here’s how!

Guest Tables: Don’t be afraid! If you love some patterns- go all in & use a funky patterned linen that just screams you for those guest tables. If it’s noticeably “you” your guests will appreciate that you went above and beyond to showcase your personality to its fullest extent.

Cake Table: Using a specialty linen can really be a nice added touch for your cake table. At that time of cake cutting all eyes are on the couple which kind of means everyone will be seeing that linen sooner or later. Why not take the time to add a fun colored linen on that table or use a textured linen that can be tied in with other pieces of decor somewhere around the room?Photography: Audrey Rose Photography

Sweetheart Table: Why not deck out that table you’re going to be sitting at for the Best Man Speech or that Maid of Honor Speech? What a great way to elevate the table you and your new husband or wife are sitting at for the night.Photography: David Champagne Photography

Our Hope For 2020

Happy Wednesday! You know what that means- time for Waterford Wednesday. Okay- let’s be real the last few months of 2020 have been ROUGH for everyone. We are missing our staff, our events, our vendor friends, and all of our amazing clients so much! We wanted this blog today to be about all the good that weddings and events can bring & maybe if we speak it into existence they’ll be back sooner than later. *Fingers crossed*

At the start of this amazing new year AND decade- our friends at The Lesner Inn asked us to be a part of an incredible & elegant 20’s theme styled shoot. The vendor list for this one was off the chain! And the girls knocked it out of the park with this design and attention to detail.Might we add- they used some of our favorite linens to give you all the 20’s feels. This black and silver metallic brushed jacquard linen is reversible. SAY WHATTTT. You have the option to use this side that shows more of the darker colors but flip it to have a similar pattern with the lighter colors popping!Oh the chandelier and the dangling pearls add for an effortless 20’s look.Want to know what else is reversible? You guessed it- the napkins can be folded on either the shiny side or the matte side. This photo shows the napkins folded shiny side up and you can see the subtle texture that comes with a majestic linen.Adding some mermaid sequins is sure to catch the eyes of your guest. This linen is super fun & unique!Black and gold is such a timeless look that can be transformed and elevated from decade to decade or even 1920 –> 2020!As always- a perfect way to add some pizzaz to your chairs is by using sashes. This is a 4 corner knot and adds a beautiful accent to the chairs.While we know 2020 has been no walk in the park for any of us, we are confident that events will be up and running in no time! To all of the couples affected by COVID-19 we are rooting for you!!! We will do everything in our power to make your event just as incredible as originally planned. 2020 we know there is potential to end this year with a bang. So cheers! Cheers to 2020 ending better than it’s started.

Waterford Wednesday: Lesner Inn Stylized Shoot

Any beach lovers out there?  Us gals at Waterford Event Rentals sure are and absolutely cannot get enough of the ocean’s beauty!  Spring and summer are obviously the more popular seasons to host your event near the water; however, what about those of you out there who want to host a late fall or mid-winter event but yet still want to be close to the water?  Well, this blog is specifically designed for you!

Yes, we know that some of you out there are already planning your winter 2019-2020 events and need a little inspiration.  Don’t fret, because we’re here to make sure you stay “in-the-know” about what trends can be beautifully designed in the cold, bleak temps and still give off that subtle inviting nautical look.

Featured this week on Waterford Wednesday is our January’s stylized shoot at the breathtaking Lesner Inn in Virginia Beach, VA.  See what you think by checking out some of our favs below:

Velvet, the trendsetter for 2019, is an absolute MUST in creating your tablescape.  Pairing the gold tableware with Mauve Velvet Napkins and Navy Polyester Table Linens truly promotes a more welcoming environment to the guests!  Additionally, the warmth evoked from this specific mauve linen proves that this an excellent choice for events in the winter months.

The Eggplant Polyester Napkins truly add a unique touch against the Navy Table Linen and tableware.  Complimentary to the floral design highlighted throughout the shoot, these Eggplant Napkins provide depth and dimension, shying away from the typical nautical flair and going bold!

WOW!  What a breathtaking shoot this was!  The pops of purples, greens, blues, and pinks really just highlight all the best features about the the Lesner Inn and the WATER right behind the venue!
