Waterford Wednesday: 1 Linen, 3 Ways

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
A couple weeks ago, we did our first “1 Linen, 3 Ways” post on our lovely gold sequins linen, and we decided it’s about time for another! Our specialty linens have been a hot commodity this wedding season and we’ve seen them used in so many beautiful and creative ways. This week is all about our specialty Petal Linen!

2015-05-13_0082We LOVE the idea of using a specialty linen on a cocktail table. This isn’t something that we see a lot of, but we sure hope more brides take this unique approach to covering their cocktail tables in the future! Not only does the Petal give a lot of volume and texture, but also provides a more eye-catching look!

One of the trends that has really caught our attention this wedding season {in a good way!} is the use of specialty linens on family style tables! It’s such an unexpected, but gorgeous surprise to see a specialty linen taking up a whole long table. Again, the heavily textured style of our Petal Linen makes this table a showstopper!

The crisp white of this particular Petal linen was so sharp and vibrant at this outdoor wedding! We love how the floral on this sweetheart table was kept simple and really complimented the linen instead of competing with it. Our Petal Linen is full  of volume and can handle a table with minimal decor!

It’s Feature Friday!
We can’t believe this gorgeous specialty linen hasn’t been featured yet!

Our petal linen has become a favorite specialty linens of ours! This linen is such a gorgeous addition to any event and the petal detail that takes up the whole linen often makes it a first choice for brides! The Petal linen would be the perfect addition to transform a cake table into a beautiful display, or to accentuate a sweetheart table. Adding in a gorgeous napkins or floral centerpiece would absolutely take the linen to the next level. We also love the versatility of this specialty linen. Coming in ivory, white and silver, our petal linen would be perfect for a summer or winter wedding! It never fails, this linen makes a statement and looks exquisite while doing so!

Oceanaire Photo Shoot

Today, we are so excited to share some exclusive pictures of a photo shoot Waterford was recently a part of! One of our very favorite things here at Waterford is to showcase our linens, and photo shoots always present the best opportunity to see our linens come to life. Basically, it gives us a chance to play “dress up,” wedding style. . .and who doesn’t love that?!

Waterford provided all of the linens for the photo shoot at the Oceanaire Resort Hotel in Virginia Beach and the shoot turned out flawless thanks to the concept and direction of Michele Carrizales of MorLina Events and Dawn Roberson of Oceanaire Resort Hotel. The ultra talented Will King of Will King Photography captured all of the gorgeous images during the shoot.

See what we mean? To.Die.For. Oceanaire has this fabulous outdoor setup on the top floor of the hotel and it was the perfect location for these particular shots and we absolutely loved the way our linens looked with the little glimpse of the patio section as well as up close. Featured above is our Metallic Silver Table Linen paired with our Blush colored napkins and Blush sashes tied in a side knot. The softness of the Blush mixed with the shimmer of the table linen worked so well together and this shot really shows how versatile this speciality linen is! Of course, the gorgeous floral arrangement by Alisa of Botanique Events pairs so well with the blush and metallic and brings the whole look together.

We love the look and feel of the first photo in black and white and then the shock of the bright blues with the following color pictures! Our Grey Petal Linen paired with our black chair covers and Oasis sashes give this setting a cooler sort of look without compromising the elegance. The contrast between the dark chair cover, the bright Oasis sash and Tiffany Blue napkin, and the floral by Botanique Events pulls the whole table together without it looking like too much is going on. While we see white or ivory chair covers used most often, black chair covers are continually increasing in popularity and based off of this photo and setup we can see why!

Special thanks to the other amazing vendors who were involved in making this shoot so beautiful!

Waterford Wednesday: Petal Linen

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
We are fresh off one of our busiest weeks and weekends ever and we are gearing up for another crazy event-filled weekend! Did we mention how much we LOVE wedding season? Seriously, the hustle and bustle of the planning and prepping involved to make each and every individual event special and flawless is right up our alley!
Since the weather has been gorgeous and has basically skipped over spring right into summer, we thought we’d feature one of our favorite linens that pairs beautifully with warm weather!

Our Petal Linen has become a favorite of many of the Waterford girls and brides alike! This linen (in ivory above!) is such a gorgeous addition to any event and if we’ve learned anything about the event industry, it’s that details matter! It’s crazy how this Petal Linen can transform a cake table into a beautiful display or accentuate a sweetheart table, but we’ve seen it happen time and time again. It never fails, this linen makes a statement and looks exquisite while doing so!

The Petal Linen comes in a variety of colors, but white is one that we see used constantly! As we mentioned last week, white is a popular neutral for summer and looks so crisp against bright or bold colors. The petal detail on this linen brings a basic white linen to the next level and is sure to leave an impression! Add a bright napkin or flower centerpiece to this linen and you just can’t go wrong!

We’ve seen how brides have utilized this linen for their winter weddings and we can’t wait to see how this linen is incorporated with spring and summer touches!
