Inspiration - Where Do You Get Yours From?


The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.

by Tina Smith, our savvy linens expert who's always happy to share her knowledge

When I have clients walk in to our showroom, the first question I ask them is "What is your inspiration for the event you’re planning?" It's important to remember that as every event starts you’re your own personal inspiration! It can come from your family history, some place you have vacationed, or just something around your home or work place.


A crawfish boil is a great inspiration idea for a summer party!

When I am planning a personal event, I get my inspiration from the menu that we are serving. For example, if we have a crawfish boil with all the fixings, my inspiration for our theme might be "New Orleans"  so that all of my linens, china, glassware and décor are based on this inspirational theme.

 A pool party with summery linens is a must for all Floridians.

Some clients get their inspiration from a linen that they saw in our showroom or on Pinterest, and others are going to build their event around one particular fabric or color.  Once you get your inspiration, all other aspects start to fall into place like your cake, flowers and additional table décor. Here is a photo of one of our recent client’s inspiration:

Here at Linens By the Sea, we are always coming up with something new and exciting when it's time to redecorate our showroom! We like to get our inspiration from holidays or new products we get in so we can show our clients what we have to offer. This month we are celebrating Memorial Day and getting ready for the 4th of July. Below is what some of our Linens by the Sea team members came up with for the showroom this month:
