Planning a party? There are a few essentials you must choose if you want guests to remember your party for the right reasons. When it comes to your party’s decor, you will need to select three main colors to serve as the cohesive visual theme. These colors should be evident in your accessories such as napkins, paper pom-poms, balloons, plates, and place cards. Once you have your chairs and tables, you need to remember one more crucial element: your linen fabrics. Here are our top tips on how to include linen fabrics in your party.
Tables and chairs:
Event rental companies will give you a good idea about the number of chairs and tables you need for your event. Once you have a precise number in mind, it’s time to get creative and mix and match linens on your rental chairs and party tables to add different elements and flair to your party. The number of chairs and tables you need is crucial in determining the color variety you need and the style that will suit your event.
Furniture size matters:
Events are different and may require different size tables. For instance, a sweet 16 party may need round tables while a wedding may instead require long rectangular tables for guests to sit and enjoy the party. Some events may even prefer square tables. Despite the shape, they all need covering, and that’s where your linen comes in. The event rental company you choose should be able to advise you on these selections if necessary. There should be a variety of high quality linen options for the different tables and chairs you will have at your party.
Linen length you prefer:
Various parties call for different length, and your preference matters as well. You may, for example, prefer to have shorter linen fabrics (around halfway down the floor) for cooperate party but prefer the longer length cloth that hit the floor for your wedding reception. Generally, outdoor parties prefer shorter linen fabrics, while indoor parties love long lines.
Make it solid:
Linen is well known for making a statement in any event. If you want to maintain this wow factor, the best linen fabrics to use are solid colors. This may seem counter intuitive but solid colors compliment table runners and chair sashes the best. They are also perfect centerpieces and even better napkins. Also, solid colors guarantee that you will get your desired linen color in stock, so your chairs and party table clothes match. Rental places carry more solid colors than they do prints, which makes choosing the variety easier.
Consider a white base:
If you have too much color in your event, you risk overwhelming your guests with the burst of color. However, a great trick is to use white as your base and use your preferred theme colors to accentuate it. You can use color on the napkins, tables, chair covers and sashes, and other accessories such as flowers and centerpieces. This brings in an air of luxury to your event, which will wow any guest attending.
A great twist when using a white linen base is to have your theme colors accentuated with light. This gives the white base a glow. You can be a little more creative and use glowing floral settings or glowing table décor which perfectly accentuates the white.
Make a dramatic effect with black:
Black gives your event a different kind of contrast and adds just enough drama. Just like a white base, your theme colors would have to accentuate the black and bring the event to life with the contrasting colors. Colors such as lime green, pink, royal blue, and yellow would pop out of the table and stand tall, grabbing your guest’s attention. This contrast creates an energized and exciting look for linen displays.
Linen is a great way to create the mood and feel in your event. Your event planner will have great ideas on how to best accentuate your decor to wow our guests and create a memorable party they will remember for years to come. Whether you choose to go with the more classic white base or the dramatic black, the right linen fabrics will add class to your event and make it stand out.
