Today we are here to talk about linens! Linens are one of the easiest ways to make a BIG impact on your reception. Between tables, napkins, runners, and chairs there are so many ways to tie in your theme.
First things brides think about when they hear “linen” is tables. Don’t be afraid to get bold and creative! You don’t necessarily have to use the same color scheme as your brides maids’ dresses or flowers, you can tie in those colors with the details (i.e. napkins, runners, etc.) . If you don’t want to be too bold, pick a neutral color for the majority of tables and switch it up for the head table or the cake table. Think glitter, texture or bold stripes to draw your guest’s attention. Also, consider a runner to combine colors or use on a bare table for a pop of color. Another option is layering or alternating linens. Don’t be afraid to combine two or more fabrics you love into the space.

Napkins are a linen that is sometimes overlooked by Brides. The napkin is a key piece that can really tie in the whole look of your reception. Once the table cloth, china, and stationary are picked out, put it all together to choose the napkin with the most impact. There is no such thing as too many samples. Try fabrics you might shy away from and see how they come together. You can go bold in a solid color, fabric, pattern or all!
Lastly, don’t forget about the chairs! Draping chairs is another great and simple way to make a big impact at low cost. Consider enhancing the Bride and Groom chairs with a pop of color or a classic white. There are so many fun ways to wrap or cover chairs, so get creative with it!
