Choosing Table Linen Colors

Here's a photo of an after wedding (the couple got married in Jamaica) reception that we set up yesterday. I don't know about you but I was so happy to find out that the couple were actually going to be able to choose a linen color. In our area, most banquet halls, country clubs and the like only offer ivory or white and so unless budget allows, many of my clients need to stick to those two options. Personally, I love what a colored linen can do for a room, especially with regards to complimenting the flowers. In this case, the bride and groom asked me my opinion on what linen color they should do and I was happy to advise them. One option was a deep orange but that shade was very overpowering and more of a "fall" orange than a summer tangerine. There was also a hot pink and that color was a bit too much and I feared it would have overpowered the brightly colored flowers they wanted. Another choice was a deep plum purple that I really loved but they were a bit fear

Linen Drama

I thought I'd share a few photos from a Bar Mitzvah we did yestersday. I really loved the "pop" of red that the linens provided. People ask all the time if I think linen colors make a difference and if this event is any indication, I'd say yes! We took our photos before the napkins went down but they were going to be a deep chocolate brown to pick up the color in the curly willow and natural river stones. Because the room at the Nassau Inn is a nice size but does not have overly tall ceilings, we chose to do half the tables with matching down pieces to compliment without over powering the room. If your venue offers colored linen, by all means have fun with it and choose something that compliments your theme! When in doubt, go for a little linen drama!!
