The LBD of Event Fashion
Well-chosen linen is like the always flattering Little Black Dress (a.k.a. LBD). And these days, your linen options are as varied as your wardrobe: There are all sorts of sizes, shapes, colors, fabric, patterns, textures, and options to consider.
When planning an event, the table linen is the base for your tablescape. The linen complements and unifies every element that is placed on top of it. It is both functional (hide that scratched up tabletop and ugly metal legs, please!) as well as decorative – the perfect way to dress your day.
