Fabric For History Lovers – Toile

20 Aug

Pretty with a history – that’s Toile fabric! We love using this beautiful fabric to bring a traditional but fresh pop of inspiration to traditionally designed events. It’s name comes from a 12th century French word meaning “linen cloth”. A fabric with surface decoration printed right onto the fabric  – typically traditional in pattern. Printing on fabric…hmmm, sounds like something I Do Linens would love! {smile}

Enjoy these inspiration pictures of our Toile runner in Brown used for a wedding at the beautiful Reynolds Plantation, Ritz Carlton in Georgia.

Textile Tuesday – Feeling Patriotic With Navy Stripes

2 Jul

The Fourth of July holiday comes only once a year, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t show your love for a Navy Stripes linen anytime! A beautiful striped linen in Blues and accented with Silver. This linen is a favorite for many types of events as decor can bring out the masculine or feminine in it. It can be used beautifully for both corporate and social events.

Some people feel that it’s not July Fourth without a breathtaking fireworks show. But honestly, I Do Linens thinks it’s not July Fourth without a Navy linen!

Three Top Fashion & Event Linen Trends This Summer

29 Jun

Fashion trends change every season, and during this time of year Summer trends are in full swing.  This Fashion Friday we’re sharing three top trends for fashion and event linen selection this season. Trends that are wearable on the person and shareable on the tabletop. It’s all about taking risks and having fun!

1. Monochrome

Monochrome as a combination of black and white. It’s every where you look in fashion magazines and boutiques. It’s also a color scheme that we’re seeing requested for event decor of all types of events. This is a trend that’s easy to pull off, and is appropriate for all seasons. Not to mention one that’s timeless when looking back on pictures of your life celebration event.

2. Blue

Cobalt blue dresses were definitely hot on the catwalks this year. In linens, we’re seeing this color requested for events from corporate meetings to weddings (yes, even weddings!). It’s a statement color for sure. But one that’s so much fun to design event decor around – we love it!

3. Metallics

Oh yes, one of the most talked about trends of the season! Several designers made huge statements with metallics during Fashion Week this year. For event linens we mostly hear request for silver and gold – but runway metallics also included green, pink and blue (how fun, right?!).  This trend is attention-seeking and fun – a definite “wow” when used to anchor your tablescape.
