Our biggest piece of advice. . .make linens a priority when planning your special event! Don’t let them become overshadowed or an afterthought! After all, they are the foundation of your tables and provide you with various colors and textures to set the tone for your event.

2. Don’t be afraid to mix it up!

We love a basic white or ivory linen just as much as the next person, but throw a speciality linen on a table and we swoon! It’s true, speciality linens are more expensive, but totally worth it in the long run. Think about how many photos will be taken of your cake table or sweetheart table. You definitely want a fabulous sequin linen or rosette linen to add that extra “pop” to these special tables! Since these particular tables are often the most prominent, they deserve to stand out a little!

3. Choose linens that compliment your event
Unless you’re in the wedding or event industry, you may not know the various fabric choices that are available. Believe it or not, the different fabric types can elevate or better explain the concept of your event. Lucky for you, we’re here to give you the scoop on some of our most popular choices!

Sure, you could throw any size linen on a table and call it a day, but knowing the exact size ensures that you order the linen that will look and fit the very best.
