How to turn your reception from bland to breathtaking....

Are you stuck with a blank canvas? Turn an ordinary ballroom or banquet hall into an eye catching wow. Nothing livens up a space more than specialty linens. Adding a burst of color is a great way to carry out your theme and color scheme. Linens come in a variety of colors and textures. Don't be afraid to mix and match. If your budget is limited for linens, use the white table cloths provided by the venue and add an overlay and/or some colored napkins for a color burst. Chair covers and sashes totally transform the look of a simple banquet or folding chair. A floor length table cloth always looks best when hosting a formal event. Specialty linens can also compensate for a simple centerpiece. Take a look at some of the photos below with some inspirations to turn your reception room from blah to Ahhhh!

Memorial Day Weekend

I hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day is a day to reflect and honor the veterans that have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. For more info on the history of Memorial Day visit http://www.usmemorialday.org/backgrnd.html. This is also a great opportunity to enjoy some quality time with family and close friends. Take this time to relax, have fun and appreciate your relationships with loved ones. I had the pleasure of coordinating a beautiful total destination wedding in Amelia Island yesterday. The entire group came in from Tennessee and there was so much love and adoration surrounding this weekend. Everyone arrived on Thursday, and there were several activities planned daily for all to enjoy. There was nothing but love amongst the big host of family and friends that took the trip to enjoy and celebrate this union of the couple. With this being said, I am going to enjoy my family for the rest of the weekend and appreciate everyone near and dear to me.
Take care,

Lisa
