So you have your heart set on a beach wedding. As you set out to choose your décor, remember the importance of table linens. Tablecloths, chair covers, napkins, flowers, lighting and props all work together. If you are thinking about eliminating the linen to save money…big mistake. Linen, dollar for dollar, gives you the biggest visual impact. Below are some examples of the perfect pairing of fabrics in both remote beachfront escapes and gorgeous high end hotels. In both venues, the linens were essential to the design.
The White Elephant Hotel was the scene of this picture perfect day on Nantucket (above). Event planner, Linda Matzkin, from Hopple Popple designed custom linens for the venue. Lighting design by Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design, Flowers by Columbine Floral Design.
Event planner Linda Matzkin from Hopple Popple integrated traditional dining tables and chairs to the unspoiled beauty of a pristine Caribbean beach (shown above). To dress the tables in this natural environment, we used an embroidered coral patterned fabric woven with 100% flax linen. Guests experienced the comfort of having traditional tables and chairs while enjoying fine dining on a spectacular beach.
As we bid you adieu…. study the best Bon Voyage Dinner ever (shown above). Simple and fun, these family style dining tables pop right off the sand. Periwinkle, Lime and Grotto Blue cotton linen with alternating dinner napkins set the tone. Hopple Popple thought of everything guests could need to enjoy one last night in paradise. A beautifully designed, complete beach wedding weekend.
