What Linens Can Do For Your Event

When it comes to planning your event, whether it’s a wedding, birthday party, bat/bar mitzvah, social, or corporate event, you want absolutely everything to be perfect. A great starting point is to pick out your colors. Once you have chosen the colors for your event you will then need to decide how you would like to showcase those colors. There are many colors and fabrics available for specialty linens at Linens by the Sea, and you can mix and match them to create any style or color combination for your event.

Shimmer Crease Platinum Linen

Show off your event’s color scheme with solid color linens in our stunning hue color options. From dusty rose to kelly green, here at Linens by the Sea we offer mostly any color your heart desires. Fabrics like satin, damask, pintuck or organza will provide a sophisticated look to table settings and they will look absolutely stunning.


Center Table: Ocean Bliss Damask

One of the most common ways to use specialty linens to showcase your event colors is to use white for the base with your chosen colors as accents. You can easily do this with colored napkins, table runners, chair covers, chairs and chair sashes, chargers and/or other accessories like centerpieces and flowers.

To create a twist on the more traditional white with accent colors, instead of having your accent colors displayed with other items, you can use colored lights to give the white a colored glow or decorate yoru lights with color. This type of look is very effective with shiny specialtty fabrics such as satin, taffeta, or mostly any solid fabric with a sheen. You can use glowing floral settings, or any glowing table décor for example. This same effect is most commonly done with most pipe and drape panels with the use of dramatic uplighting.

If you are looking for a different kind of contrast or for a more dramatic effect, you can use black as your base with your other chosen colors as accents. This look works best if the colors are brighter and will not blend in with the black. Colors like navy blue or hunter green would not have much contrast, while royal blue or lime green colors would really pop!

For something a little more exciting and non-traditional, you can use just your chosen colors together with no separation of white or black or using only white or just black as the accent colors, making it all about the colors which is always a great way to creating a very exciting and energizing look for your specialty linens and displays.


And who says that you have to use solid colors for your linens or event theme? For something totally amazing and outside the box then consider using prints such as polka dots, stripes, animal print, plaids, or other motifs.

If you would like to create over the top elegance and graceful design then consider renting specialty linens for more than just on your tables and chairs. Drape them from the ceilings and walls to surround yourself in glamorous color with soft candle light for an unbelievably romantic setting.


Draping at a Ceremony

If you think bare tables are more your style than using just linen napkins are a great way to enhance your table settings. Set tables with crisp white, or use napkins for a slight twist on a classic look. Try napkins intricately folded or in vibrant hues to create a distinctive look for your event. Table runners are also a great choice to use to add color and style to any table, they would still allow for some table exposure.

Let’s discuss some ways you and your event planner can create different looks and moods with your specialty linen choices. For more ideas and suggestions for use of color and specialty linens please visit our website at .
