“Drape it like it’s Hot” Event Trends

Drape it like it’s hot…… that is all the noise for 2017.  Our clients are scouring Pintrest for the latest and greatest in event backdrops.  Drape is used in ceremonies as well as backdrops behind the head tables for the event receptions.  In large events spaces, you can use draping to create vignettes for private lounge areas or set an atmosphere for a theme or intimacy.   Doorway draping can create a lush factor to an entrance or a tunnel entryway to personalize your event.

We are seeing draping in many different applications this year in weddings.  We continue to add chiffon as table linens, onto table tops and on backs of chairs but it is HOT for Drape. The color selection is endless and the drape factor of the lightweight chiffon allows us to create a custom and timeless look for your event.

Draping can help to design and define tunnels, entryways, doorways and other spaces to create dramatic effects in your event space.   Draping is a cost effective way to compliment, accentuate or transform a room.  

Ballroom decor doesn’t coordinate with your wedding decor?  Drape the perimeter of the room to hide the walls, wallpaper or decor.

Having your ceremony in the same room as your reception? Create a wall of drape that can separate the two spaces.  Once the ceremony has ended, tie back the drape to create a doorway/entryway into your reception area.

Have a large dance floor that seems too open? Use drape to define the perimeter of the dance floor and create a more intimate space for cutting a rug.

Has your guest count dropped and now you have more space to work with?  Use drape and lounge seating to make a space for guests to hang out and chat.

Whatever the reason may be, draping can help to create a mood, define a space or compliment your head table.

Timeless Linen Collection is on trend for 2017

Timeless chic receptions coupled with the wow factor are very popular for 2017-2018.  The Timeless Collection is perfect for the bride who wants to achieve a classic, sophisticated feel. The best part about the Timeless Collection is that the pricing is very economical linens.  Our Timeless Linen Collection consists of Manhattans, Panama, Pintuck, and Satin.  The Manhattan linen  is a 100% Polyester Faux Dupioni (pictured above). This reversible textured fabric is dull on one side and shiny on the other, the most popular colors are ivory and beach.  The Panama Linen is a Polyester Faux Linen. It’s plain texture adds a sense of simplicity to any event  The brides are in LOVE with the White Panama Linen.  Pintucks create a bit of texture to the table without an over abundance of sheen in a taffeta sewn in a 4” diamond pattern.  The most popular colors in pintuck to create the timeless look are white, ivory and cashmere.  

We are discovering that our brides want to create a clean look for the guest tables and strategically use a Metallic linen for the head and cake table.  We are seeing the use of Copper and Rose Gold as accents in votive holders and charger plates.  Check out our Rose Gold Charger in our Farm House Table Blog, it is stunning.  For Centerpieces…..Green Green Green.  Greenery Runners coupled with a bit of candle light bring the perfect ambiance to the timeless look.  “Peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias and other “soft-petal” blooms are the top-requested flowers from coast to coast — and for good reason. “They epitomize romance,” says Zoe Gallina, creative director of Botanica international Floral Design in Florida. Peonies, in particular are in high demand, with one planner noting that some brides will time their weddings to take place when peonies are in peak season. Loose rose petals, used as a “garland” or runner atop tables or scattered among floating candles, are another trend that’s coming on strong.” Courtesy of http://bridalguide.com/planning/the-details/reception/wedding-trends-2017.  

 

Chanel Chair has arrived and we are in love!

White Chanel Chair

White Chanel Chair

We are truly in love with the new Chanel Chair in white.  Named after the timeless Coco Chanel, we feel the chair speaks for itself with class.  This chair has also been coined the infinity chair, whatever the name…we know that it is a keeper.

Pictured above, we have added adornment details with a rose and greenery.  The Mink Giselle linen is covered in tulle accented with the white antique charger plate and petal satin napkins.  Let’s not forget the little green sprig added into the napkin….the little details make all the difference!

The chairs are very versatile and can be used in glam designs as well as rustic elegance and are also perfect for social events.  Can you picture this in a Kate Spade Shower Setting, oh wow!  Pair this chair with a Gold Satin Pad, black and white stripe tablecloth, Gold Beaded Glass Charger Plates and a Fuchsia Satin Napkin and ~Voila~Kate Spade!  With endless options, this chair can be specifically placed at VIP Tables and Captain Tables to add a touch of visually appealing design to your event.  Combine it with our White Dior Chairs to create a Chic White Ambiance with our White Manhattan Linens.  Many of our brides have selected this chair for the ceremony and then select a resin chiavari chair for the reception to give the guests a change in design for the event.  

Add on a pad to bring this chair an extra touch a flair.  Owner, Colleen, placed our Petal Satin Chair Pad on this chair and our Luxe Team fell in love.  Our Industry Professionals have already reserved these chairs and we are just awestruck by the endless design options.  We would love to have you in to play around with designs and see if our new Chanel Chairs are a match for your event!
