Waterford Wednesday: Nautical Stylized Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
Can you believe it’s already July?! These summer months have been flying by and we can’t believe all of the beautiful events that have come and gone so far! We’re excited to celebrate our nations Independence this weekend and then gear up for some more busy weeks/weekends ahead!

Since July 4th is all about the red, white, and blue, we wanted to share more pictures from the nautical stylized shoot, organized by Michele of MorLina Events and photographed by Will Hawkins Photography, that we first mentioned in our Waterford Wednesday: Favorite Things post! Although the shoot was a gorgeous nautical theme, we love how it incorporated America’s 3 favorite colors!

Our very favorite part about the whole concept and photos is definitely the way that every little detail “pops.” The crisp white of our table linens paired amazingly well with the bright red napkin and flowers as well as the navy and white striped runner! We also love how the colors were the main “nautical” components of the shoot! While there were definitely some adorable nautical touches, the red, white, and blue colors shined through on their own, confirming the nautical aspect! Job very well done on this Michele and Will, we absolutely loved it all!

One last thing before we leave today. . .remember back in April when we posted our very first Waterford Wednesday of the wedding season? In that post, we talked about our bridal event A Crystal Clear Vision that we hosted in March and how the show would be featured in the spring/summer edition of The Wedding Planner Magazine. Well, we are SO pleased to announce that the issue is finally coming out THIS MONTH! Stay tuned for the unveiling of the magazine and some inside scoop from us about the event! We can’t wait!

Waterford Wednesday: Fashionable Linens

Welcome back to another edition of Waterford Wednesday!
Today, it’s all about Fashionable Linens!
We’ll let you in on a little secret. . .we’re not just linen lovers over here, we adore fashion almost as much, and don’t even get us started on our obsession with red carpet fashion! Since we are still mourning the end of awards season and all the fashion that went with it, we’ve gathered some of our “best dressed” from this years biggest shows and we couldn’t think of a better way to highlight some gorgeous gowns than with some of our equally as gorgeous specialty linens! After all, we think our linens are pretty enough to wear!

We gasped when we saw Miranda Lambert walk the red carpet at the ACM Awards a couple of weeks ago. Not only did she look stunning, but we immediately thought of our Sequence Table Linen! Much like Miranda, our specialty Sequence linen exudes class and sophistication. This linen has just the right amount of “pop” to bring your wedding or event to the next level. Whether you place it on an outdoor table like the above picture, or use it as a beautiful base for your cake, this is a linen thats gorgeous color will be hard to forget!

Could Taylor Swift’s “suit of armor” Grammy’s dress be any more elegant? We loved it then, and we’re still obsessed with it now! The effortless way it drapes over and hugs her body reminds us of our Silver Chain Link Sequence Overlay. While we offer this stunning linen in a table runner as well, the overlay has continuously elevated weddings right before our eyes. Placing a simple white or ivory table linen under this overlay is sure to give your sweetheart table the right amount of sparkle, but placed over a black or colored table linen could take your table to the next level! Whichever way you choose, you just can’t go wrong!

Colorblock Queen! We completely fawned over Sandra Bullock’s fashion risk at the Golden Globe Awards! Let it be known that this risk was worth the reward! At an award show where dresses are more pretty than bold, Sandra’s dress stood out, just like our Chevron With Navy Blue Runners do! With the warm weather coming around, we have found ourselves constantly pulling this fun linen for bride’s who want to spice up their guest tables! Don’t think that you have to choose a subtle napkin or flower color with this linen. . .go all out like our picture shows! In this case, we believe less more is more!

Check out more of our awesome specialty linens on our “Rentals” tab above and don’t forget to keep up with Waterford every day!

Turquoise… A HOT Summer Color!

Turquoise is definitely a HOT color this summer. Many try hard to match all their reception colors (i.e. favors, napkins, centerpieces), however, the new trend is to mix and match shades. Take a look at the picture above…the colors aren’t exactly the same, yet when put together they look great!

Complete your look with table runners and sashes to be sure your accent color pops! We have 3 types of fabric and MANY different color variations.

Looking forward to a busy June!
