What size linens do I need?

Coming up with your event design can feel a bit overwhelming. When it comes to linens, there are so many fabrics, patters, textures, and colors… then just when you think you have it all nailed down you realize that now you need to figure out what sizes you need! We’ve come up with a little cheat sheet to make the event planning process a little easier.

Guest tables typically come in the following standard sizes:

-48″ round (floor length= 108″)

-60″ round (floor length=120″)

-72″ round (floor length= 132″)

-6’x30″ (floor length= 90×132)

-8’x30″ (floor length = 90×156)

If Party Time Rentals does not carry the linen you want, you can always go up a size. The linen will just puddle a little bit on the floor. You can also go down a size and the linen will pull up off the floor a few inches.

Talk to your even rental consultant if you have any questions on linen sizing.

I Do, to Color Too!

It’s no secret that I love color.

When a bride comes in to Party Time to pick out wedding rentals, one of my favorite questions to ask is “What are your colors?”. Sometimes not only will she tell me an accent color, but she will describe an expansive palette of playful hues. This is what I live for.

Did you know that linens are one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to add color into your venue? You are able to blanket entire tables in beautiful shades of anything and everything. Drape ceilings and walls in an array of fabrics and warmth. Gone are the days to expect an all-white reception. 2019 will be the year to be bold and unique! Within your table settings, you can cover every inch of it in something different.

Grey china? Check! Rose gold flatware? Check! Blue glasses? DONE.

Another question I often get asked by brides is “Do people typically mix linen colors?” My answer is- Why not?

Do you want all of your guest tables to have sage linens and salmon napkins? Or do you want to alternate sage and salmon linens with all ivory napkins? It’s up to you, and whatever you choose it will turn out beautiful.

At Party Time Rentals in College Station, we have an entire wall devoted to color coded linen sections. Chances are, if we don’t have it, we may be able to order it for you! If you’re feeling unsure, we have wonderful experienced event rental consultants in store to help guide you to the vision you are wanting to achieve. We are looking forward to meeting you and I hope that you say I do, to Color Too!

I’m Dreaming of a Coral Christmas

December is magical for everyone. Some people look forward to the family holidays all year. Some embrace the season’s hot chocolates and mulled wines whether or not the weather calls for them. Students have been waiting for their winter break since the first day of classes and it never feels like it comes soon enough! All of these things are great- truly! – but for me there is one event in December I look forward to more than anything else – the official announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year!

 

I know – this seems crazy. I love my time with my family gathered around the fireplace. I love fuzzy socks and scarves and pumpkin spice lattes with friends – but the Pantone Color of the Year rules my life, and whether or not you realize it, it rules yours too.

“Living Coral” is going to be everywhere this year. Pantone’s announcement in early December marks the official start of every design fad for the next year – fashion, interior design, graphic design, cosmetics, and of course, event design. 2019 is going to be all about Coral and we are guaranteed to be planning a ton of these bright, youthful, energetic weddings.

This is the first color since 2014’s “radiant orchid” that you can really get palette creative with. Coral has always been a popular spring shade but I’m excited to see how we can tie it in throughout the rest of the year – because, believe me, you’ll be seeing “living coral” in your handbags, your shoes, your couch pillows, your hand towels, your toothbrush, and just about everywhere else. You’re even bound to see it on your favorite celebrities, since we’ve already been graced by stunning coral outfits from Gigi Hadid and Jennifer Lopez since the announcement.

So what is this going to look like for Texas weddings?

The most interesting thing about the coral trend this year is definitely how versatile the shade is. The coral palette can range from pink to orange to copper, and I am always obsessed with copper! I write this as I sip from my copper A&M coffee mug, I promise. Hammered copper chafers are going to be on all of my buffet lines this year, and my place settings will all be framed with copper flatware.

For those of you really obsessed with this year’s daring pick, you can put it to good use in your engagement jewelry by creating a custom piece using an extremely rare (and extremely pricey!) red gem called a “padparadscha sapphire.” If you’re able to get your hands on one of those, you may as well throw out the “something blue” tradition altogether and go for “something coral” instead!

Forget all of your 2018 troubles – they’re now a thing of the past. We’re starting fresh and clean with a vibrant, exciting new color scheme to keep us happy and energized all year long. This year we will be living big, living bold, and Living Coral!

Fall Table Inspo

With so many events to plan for, we wanted to give you a little inspiration. So to get into the season, we decided to give our showroom an Autumn redo. With just a few linens, mixing and matching china patterns and that pop of orange in your centerpiece or napkin, you can make your Fall event the best in the whole patch.

Check out our Fall showroom inspiration below!

We’re loving this contrast of our Paradise Delano linen with the bright pop of floral!

Neutrals never go out of style! We paired this champagne linen with mahogany Da Vinci chairs and added some fall leaves for that extra touch.

We couldn’t have a Fall showroom with out a Halloween table! Maroon and black colors are perfect for Halloween. Candelabras and spider webs make this table both spooky and romantic!
