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.

The Colors of Happy

20 May

hap·py   /ˈhapē/

Adjective: 1. Feeling or showing pleasure or contentment. 2. Having a sense of  satisfaction with (a person, arrangement or situation).

There are times when our beautiful linens are used for events that bring pure joy to us. Whether it be because of the design, or the colors or the sheer beauty of each of the event elements working together. But when an event makes us happy we just know that it’s going to make the client and their event guests just as happy.

The colorful event we’re sharing today that  I Do Linens was a part of is exactly one of those “happy” events! We hope you enjoy in the images captured by  Shawna Herring Photography. And let us know in the comments below, “Does this event make you happy?”
