Our Favorite New Trend: Velvet!

Woo hoo!!!!! It’s finally Wednesday which means another blog coming at ya! Today, we wanted to talk about one of our FAVORITE trends that is surely to pick up around the fall. VELVET. If you’re into subtle texture then you might definitely want to consider adding some velvet to your reception space someway somehow. Personally, we try to show EVERYONE something velvet when they come in our showroom just because we love it so much. Not only is there an option for just standard velvet, but you can get an etched velvet pattern or even a crushed velvet look. Either way, we think velvet speaks for itself. Take a peek and see if you agree.

Let’s start off with this INCREDIBLE floral velvet linen that was used by Chef by Design at our 2020 Crystal Clear Vision Bridal Expo! The elegance of this linen is second to none. This provides an incredible way to tie in your wedding colors and give all the romantic vibes. This photo doesn’t even begin to describe the beauty of this linen. No doubt this one will stop you in your tracks.Table Design: Chef by Design | Photographer: Caitlin Gerres Photography

Another linen that was used for this first time at our bridal show was a beautiful ocean velvet. A mix between blue and green, and paired with these colored glasses makes us feel like we’re sitting on the beach watching the waves roll in. Don’t forget blue is the Pantone Color of the Year so be quick to add this to your reception space somewhere before the year is up!Table Design: Rusty Cottage | Photographer: Kirstyn Marie Photography

Another great velvet option is for those brides looking for an earthy, boho vibe. This napkins are BRAND. SPANKIN. NEW. We are so thrilled to have these as part of our inventory and expect to get a lot of use out of them this fall.Table Design: Indie & Ivory | Photographer: Caitlin Gerres Photography 

Our next feature is a stunning neutral tone which we refer to as cashmere. Along with the velvet trend, going ALL NEUTRAL is a big hit! What better way to get the best of both worlds than with a linen like this. We just love how these colors bounce off one another for the perfect warm & cozy guest table.Table Design: Sunkissed Events | Photographer: Jessica Ryan Photography

Last but not least is our romantic & elegant rose quartz velvet. This linen is unique in that it can take on a mix of dusty rose/mauve and wisteria. It’s all about what you pair it with! Here it’s seen with our french floral blush napkin and white lace runner.Table Design: The Twisted Fork | Photographer: Katie Nesbitt Photography

I’m sure by now you have joined the velvet train! We just love all the possibilities that come with velvet. Don’t gorget these are available in napkins and runners as well.

Waterford Wednesday: Pantone 2016 Color Of The Year

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We’re excited for today’s post because it’s all about the 2016 PANTONE Color of the Year. . .or should we say colors! Yes, you read that right. . .PANTONE recently announced the 2016 Color of the Year, and for the first time ever, it’s a blend of two gorgeous shades – Rose Quartz & Serenity
As an event rental company that specializes in linens, color is a big part of our world, so it’s always fun for us to see what color(s) gets chosen each year. There is a lot of thought that goes into choosing the color each year and it’s supposed to serve as a representation of the year ahead, and we are totally on board with these selections! Rose Quartz & Serenity are colors that definitely compliment each other beautifully and are naturally used together, so we can’t wait to see this trend transfer over to the wedding industry. Rose Quartz is very similar to the beautiful “blush” colored trend that has been sweeping the wedding industry this past year, so it’s going to be very exciting to see the color palettes of the industry evolve!
weddingplanner016We definitely love this blue hue that is similar to Serenity that Antonia Christianson Events used on her tablescape at our 1st Crystal Clear Vision Event! We might need a few days out of the office, because starting now, it’s an all out Pinterest-fest to gather some gorgeous Rose Quartz & Serenity linen inspiration!
