Waterford Wednesday: 3 Stunning Napkin Folds

Here at Waterford, we are all about helping your Pinterest dreams become a reality!  Whether you are hosting a small dinner party or a large wedding reception, your table decor should be your focal point.  There are so many elements that can add dimension and flair to make your tablescape breathtaking.  However, we Waterford gals feel the most influential piece on your table is the napkin.

An already necessity for guests, the napkin is a classic choice in sprucing up your table without blowing your budget.  Beautifully folded napkins are a small detail that can ultimately transform a table from “drab to fab”.  Nevertheless, with the endless amounts of napkin folds out there, we know you might be a little overwhelmed at where to begin.  So don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!  We’ve narrowed down our top three fav napkin folds and want to share them with you!

The Tri-Fold

This might arguably be our most common choice for our clients who are serving their dinner in the form of “buffet-style”.  Draping a napkin under a glass, acrylic, or melamine charger creates a romantic look that will ultimately enhance your event’s level of sophistication.  Depending on your overall theme, The Tri-Fold can either compliment a farm table to finish off that rustic look with polyester napkins or even finalize your glamorous, ornate look with satin napkins.

The Knot

In the world of napkins, The Knot is one of our go-to’s when trying to dress-it-up or dress-it-down, just like your fav pair of jeans.  Coupled with an overall more simplistic look for your reception, The Knot can give off a sense of organic feeling to the table as a whole.  The beauty of this fold is its imperfect perfection, easily created with either a patterned or solid napkin of many different materials.

The Banded Fold

Going back to our dynamic-duo of chargers and napkins for our last most popular fold, The Banded Napkin Fold is our most requested by our clients.  When trying to showcase your final touches on your table, this option essentially serves to “seal-the-deal”, wrapping around your choice of chargers and maybe even your menus for your event.

Elegant and classic are the characteristics that most fundamentally describe these three napkin folds.  Each unique in its own way, these particular folds can quite frankly be added to ANY look! Which one is your fav?  Let us know in the comments section below!

Waterford Wednesday: Favorite Things

Welcome back to another week of Waterford Wednesday!
We’ve loved being able to blog each week and keep all of you updated on the happenings of Waterford! This week, we thought it would be fun to highlight a few of our favorite things. Whether it’s a summer wedding trend or a photo shoot, here are some things we are loving!

Stylized Shoots

We’ve highlighted some stylized shoots our linens were a part of in previous Waterford Wednesday posts, but this particular shoot was extra special to Waterford! With the concept by Morlina Events and photographed by Will Hawkins Photography, this nautical themed shoot featured two of Waterford’s own. Rebecca, Waterford’s Event Staff Supervisor portrayed a beautiful bride in the shoot, while Hayley, a new Waterford Event Staff member made a gorgeous bridesmaid! As much as we love seeing our linens come to life on camera, it’s extra sweet when we can see some of our staff members in front of the camera rather than behind the scenes. Look out for a future post when we can show you more of these photos!

Napkins

We just love a good napkin! Napkins really do bring a whole table together and can provide an extra pop of color events often need. Waterford has always provided napkins, but lately we’ve really gotten to experiment with interesting napkin folds and we are eager to continue to try more! Featured above are just a few of the many colors we provide folded in a pocket fold, french pleat, and tri-fold. We love how elegant the french pleat folded napkin in Blush looks against our gold plate charger!

The summer months mean outdoor weddings and we could not be any more thrilled about that! There’s just something about a warm summer night wedding that makes us happy! We absolutely loved how our table linens, napkins, and chair covers paired with both of these adorable outdoor receptions. Any time a wedding features twinkling lights or a stunning view, count us in!

Keep checking back each week for Waterford Wednesday! We’ve got some exciting posts coming up! We are doing a blog makeover in the coming weeks to update our staff members photos and we’re so excited to introduce everyone to some new Waterford members!
