Tips from the Pro’s: Linen, Dishes, Tableware

By: twadmin | 22 Mar 2018

Every year in January one of our Approved Caterers hosts a tasting at the Mansion for all his clients that have booked their event with him. It’s a great opportunity to taste his food, see how his staff operates and get ideas for your wedding day. He invites some of our approved vendors to showcase their goods or services and it gives us a chance to see some of the latest trends in linens, dishes & tableware. All Season Party & Tent Rentals is the vendor that supplies the rentals for this event and Keane Eye Photography captures the day so we can share the inspiration with you!.

This table arrangement focuses on engraved copper colored plates with copper votive as a complimentary accent. The beautifully detailed plates stand out against the smooth, almost light chocolate cream of the table linens. The dark Chaivari chairs coordinate well with the overall theme of the table setting. The centerpiece color scheme can be used with the copper/brown palette or a combination of peach and red with cream accents.

I love the intricate pattern designs edging the dinnerware.

Silver linens with the white spring flowers in simple vases make for an elegant table setting with out spending too much on intricate floral arrangements. The filigree candle votive compliments the clear plates with silver beading. Simple and Classy.

Red Paisley linens create a non-traditional table setting, the clear plates trimmed in silver and off white napkins help to even out the bold pattern of the tablecloth. The centerpiece is a nice addition to bring out the primary colors and add a few more for diversity.

Bold paisley combined with off white napkins tie everything together in this non-traditional table setting.

Spring is in the air with these rich brown linens and gold trimmed plates tied together with a color coordinated tulip centerpiece. If you substitute similarly colored mums for the tulips you have a lovely autumn setting.
