Linens - What’s So Special About Them?

Thought for this week:  Why You Want Good Quality Linens at Your Special Event

For those of us at Linens by the Sea, linens are our favorite part of a wedding or special event. We love all of the pretty, sparkly, romantic, elegant, rustic, etc., etc. It’s truly amazing just how many styles and options are available! See some options below.

Look at this beautiful design:

And this boho chic example by Naomi Chokr and Kimberly Hensley is awesome:

Why not get creative with sequins and candles:

Now, you might be asking yourself why we think it's preferable to have linens over no linens, paper/disposable linens or basic linens that don’t touch the floor, and we’re happy to share!

Check out our list below and enjoy!

1) NO LINENS:
Honestly, it’s not that pretty to see what a rental table top belonging to a venue or hotel looks like! See our photo below. In fact, this table is from our parent company, U.S. Tent, and it is of the highest quality, but just due to it being a rental, it does get scratched some almost each time it goes out the door.

2) DISPOSABLE OR PAPER LINENS:
They can be cute, and their affordability is amazing! Often perfect for kid birthday parties, they definitely have their special place at many parties. However, if they get one slight spill on them, the liquid can destroy their integrity, and that can be such a shame.

Now, at Linens by the Sea, we do carry Kwik-Covers. These are awesome for outdoor events and for fun, casual affairs, especially where it can be windy. Kwik-Covers are made of plastic with an elastic band so the product fits snugly on the table, and they even have covers for picnic tables and garbage cans. We love these water resistant plastic PVC cloths when they are appropriate. We have many colors and picnic check patterns to suit your every party need.

3) BASIC LINENS (sometimes known as commercial grade or restaurant and hotel linens):
It is totally understandable that restaurants and hotels don’t always have the fanciest linens for day-in and day-out purposes. A nice, simple cloth on a table can be clean-lined and lovely, such as the one below that we popped with a cute grey chevron runner. You could do the same with creative napkins.

Typically, with these types of linens, you are limited to a few basic colors for the cloths such as ivory, white or black. Napkins usually come in a few more colors, but they can leave lint on pants and skirts. One never likes that at a fancy function. Mostly, for more formal affairs, we think that linens to the floor add a special touch to hide the table legs of rental and venue tables. Otherwise, it will look like the below. Not bad, just super casual like at this beachside party:

Also, for special occasions, it’s really nice to have many more options to create something perfect for you!

In addition, our linens are better cared for than most. We exist to create the linen of your dreams! We have many, many colors to match your color palette to the best of our ability. For instance, if you want pink, we have the following in our poly line alone:

Light Pink ● Pink ● Dusty Rose ● Watermelon ● Neon Pink ● Fuchsia ● Hot Pink ● Raspberry

As you can see, Linens by the Sea linens really do make the difference. We take ordinary events and make them extraordinary! Plain and simple.

This why we love them:

-They really pull the tablescape design together
-They look awesome in event photos
-They make your beautiful centerpeices "pop"

To be fair, you will see fold lines in our linens, but at Linens by the Sea we press them through the most top-of-the-line press you can buy, wrap them in plastic to avoid spills, hang the linens on hangers (or fold and place them in a box if shipped) which makes them the most presentable as possible. They are a little investment for your extraordinary affair that will be undoubtedly 100% worth it! Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
