which linen do you like the best?

Joe and I went to classic party rentals yesterday and looked at a bunch of linens. Apparently you can see their entire collection online, and I wish I had known that before coming in! Anyway, these are some of the ones I like.

(A) Monaco Red, we like the color and it has kind of a funky/unique texture. I'm not sure if this looks to weird in pictures though.



(B) Dazzle Burgundy Black, is looks really nice in the picture but in person I thought it looked more black than red.



(C) Topaz Cardinal, nice color with no texture



(D) Cardinal Red, It's a standard polycotton linen and therefore much less expensive and it looks like kind of the right color.

Hi Margaret,

Are these overlays or full table cloths? I like the first one because of the texture. I think it would bring interest to the table. But if it is the stand alone linen it might be overwhelming. My second choice woul be the dazzle burgundy. Can you tell I am all for texture?

I like the first one best, the second one is also very nice, although if its darker in person, and if your reception is in door, it might be even darker. It's very nice in the picture though.

I like the richness of #3. With #2, since you said it's more black in person, traditional Chinese people won't be happy with seeing black tablecloths at a wedding.

I really like texture as well. I like #2 the best. I went for the Dazzle Pina Colada, I think, so similar to yours, but in cream/white. Why don't you try placing a white place to see if that lightens the whole thing up? If it is too black in your opinion, then I would pass. #1 is my next favorite. I would try #2 though. =)

Are you looking for something for the reception tables? If so, #1 is nice. Have you thought about using all for different aspects of the reception, such as the cake table, guest book table, etc.? I think we used about 5 or 6 different types of table clothes. They really added that extra "umph" to the reception. Just an idea.

I actually like #2 because I like the "shimmery" look. But if it's more on the black side, maybe it's not such a good idea after all.
