Dress Your Event

As you may have figured out by now much of last week was devoted to event décor. From flowers to draping to lounge furniture, if you could decorate a space with it, it was there.

Here is what I came away with: the single thing that can have the biggest impact on the look and feel of your reception is the linens. I know it is probably something you have never even thought about what with all the thought of gowns and invitations and music and what not. I am here to tell you that not one other item will have as big an impact per dollar spent as creative tablecloths, runners and chair ties. With what I saw on the show floor you won’t have any trouble finding exactly what you want.

Depending on where you live, your local rental firm or caterer may not have the greatest selection in the world. Trust me, they can get them. Most of these linens come from national rental companies that ship anywhere in the world. They arrive pressed and ready with shipping duffles to send them back when the event is over. So don’t let Aunt Annie’s catering in Bump in The Road, WY tell you that you are stuck with white. If UPS or FedEx can find you can have fabulous linen just like the brides you see in the national magazines. Why not kick it up a notch? Just do a search for tablecloth rentals.

Yes some of these pictures are duplicates from previous post, but I really wanted you to look at them again from a purely fabric point of view.
