Ready for a Party? Check Out These Table Linens

 La Tavola  is a California based fine linen rental company.
 Even if you don't live in California, their
Spring and Summer displays can be inspiring...
Coordinating napkins and seat cushions, also for rent, make a festive table.
Here's a cute underskirt...
You can rent one table cloth or a hundred.
This is a pretty cushion for chiavari party chairs (I have 12 chairs like this stored in our garage). 
We used them recently for a bridal shower here.  
Notice the organza topper over a pin striped floor length table cloth.

 There is an extensive selection of fun fabrics.
 
The sales representative said that glamorous wedding events are coming back and
these cloths below are often sold out.



A bit "over the top" for me.  What do you think? 

This is the table cloth fabric from La Tavola that my friend, Claire used for her
daughter's wedding HERE.

The fabric complements the gorgeous floral arrangements.

Back one of my favorites.  How easy to decorate with pots from the garden store?

Best wishes,
Mary Ann

  7. Wow! Those tablecloths are gorgeous! I'd be afraid to use the floral ribbon worked ones on actual eating tables, though. Talk about over the top! It'd be great to have just one on a corner dessert table. Such gorgeous inspiration pics. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Mary Ann,

    All those years I've had tons of fabric stored I could have opened up a table linen service for their use. Lovely fabric is still...lovely and these table linens are fabulous. Just love all the coordination which results some great tables. Another thing to love about design...endless possibilities.

  15. Mary Ann,

    I had no idea there was a company in Newport that rented out such fabulous linens...that don't look like rentals. Your favorite is my favorite as well. The website is great!

  17. Beautiful tables. I always use clay pots for my center pieces. I get little mini boxwoods at the garden center and put those in the pots. They work for ANY style table. I just LOVE them. :)
    Have a great weekend!

  25. What a wonderful company - I haven't seen choices like that here. I especially love the orange (of course) and the green that Claire used - just lovely!!

  26. Holy mackerel. I had no idea you could rent such lux fabrics. I adore the orange table. So you have 12 of those beautiful chairs stored in your garage??? I can only imagine how fabulous the furniture INSIDE your house must be:)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Interesting...it never occurred to me that linen rental companies might have such current fabrics available. In any case, these are lovely table settings!

  28. I love LaTavola! We actually used them for our wedding last August! We went with the light yellow, oversized gingham! Great post!

  29. Oh, I adore the orange tablecloth as well. It's so fresh and lively especially when combined with the poppies in the pots. I saw a white rose tablecloth on another blog and I thought it was so beautiful as well. Thanks for the inspiration and for visiting our blog recently.
