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.

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

Why Linens?

We thought today may be the perfect day to talk about why it’s important to include linens in your must haves when it comes to your wedding reception needs.

When it comes to planning your wedding, your choice in linens is just as important as your choice in flowers or catering.  Many brides do not realize how this choice can affect the overall atmosphere of their wedding, until it’s too late.

The impact linens can have on your reception space is due to the fact of how much room they take up and also that every table has one.  Linens will not only cover your table, but touch all the way to the floor and rid you of those ugly table legs.  Ill fitting or low quality linens will attract negative attention, which no one wants on their big day. This is why you should use your linen choice to your advantage to add style or complete the theme of your wedding.Photography: Dragon Photo Studio

Use your linens to express your personality, create ambience, or add an extra touch of romance.  You can use bright colors that pop for a fun feel or use lace for a more delicate, romantic touch.  The linens can really tie a wedding’s theme together. Burlap adds an extra touch to both rustic and beach themed weddings.  Navy and White Stripe look great for a nautical theme. While velvet adds a very elegant, classy touch.

Choose between different colors, textures and prints to get the effect you want for your special day. The possibilities are endless!! Just to name a few we have linens in all fabrics ranging from polyester to satin and rosette to sequins. We are sure to have what it is you’re looking for to accomplish your dream wedding.Photography: Meghan Lupyan Photography | Floral: Mann and Wife | Planner: Soirees by Lauren | Venue: Woman’s Club of Portsmouth

Looking Back on Our Crystal Clear 2019 Wedding Giveaway

Have you seen our 2019 Crystal Clear Wedding Giveaway Winner?! We love being able to give back to one lucky bride every year! This year, Alexa chose to do white polyester linens with satin wisteria napkins over our gold acrylic chargers to really tie everything all together at the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth.

To make the head tables stand out, she chose our gold sequin linens topped with wisteria napkins and gold chargers. The napkins add such a beautiful contrast and the floral designs really captures every aspect of her color scheme.

A huge thank you to all the vendors that offer their services once a year at our Crystal Clear Vision show! Rusty Cottage provided the cutest cake table that is actually a refurbished door! Soirees By Lauren did an amazing job coordinating this event with us. We can’t wait for next year!

The Woman’s Club Of Portsmouth

Deemed as a “Premiere Wedding Destination,” The Woman’s Club offers one of the most beautiful ballrooms for a wedding or any type of reception/event, as well as an outdoor area that is perfect for a ceremony. Having produced and accommodated hundreds of weddings over the 80 years in Portsmouth, The Woman’s Club is a top venue in the minds of brides and vendors alike!

The ballroom, where our linens spend most of their time, has just recently been renovated and expanded and is topped off by the most gorgeous chandeliers. The room, which can seat 250 comfortably is accentuated by the grand high ceilings that make the room seem even bigger than it already is!ptownphotoshootPhoto // Will King Photography

After working so closely with The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth over the years, and really loving their venue and staff, Waterford recently decided to partner with them on something big! This past April we purchased beautiful white resin chairs that we are storing at The Woman’s Club and renting out to their brides! As we’ve said before, we love these chairs and really think that they bring such a classic, clean look to any event!
