Bridal Show Rundown: Linens

This year at The Canterbury Place's Bridal Show we had awesome linens (all of which are available to rent through The Canterbury Place)! Here is how we achieved our Vintage Chic theme look through linens:


On the guest tables we had Butter Cream yellow Table Toppers (which are very affordable!).

The head table and buffet tables had Ivory Striped Table Toppers (which are so beautiful).

All of our chivari chairs had our Ivory Chair Cushions and Ivory Organza Sashes. Each set of chairs had chair sashes and were tied in a unique way. Sashes are a great way to add color and personality to a room on a budget- they start at $1.50 per chair and can be tied in a variety of ways. At the show we featured our sashes with many different decorations. On the opi chair sash (the newest way to tie sashes!) we added a napkin holder. This same look can be achieved with a broach.

On the Criss-Crossed tied sash we added a mini tissue pom. These are available through The Canterbury Place at $1.00 per chair in your wedding colors. This is a very feminine look and perfectly matches our tissue poms that hang from the ceiling (more pictures of this to come).
On The Loop tied sash, we added a beautiful crystal. These are also available to rent at $1.00 per chair. In candle light, these will really glitter and add a touch of elegance to the room.
On the Slip-Knot tied sash, we added a fabric flower. If you find something that you would like to add to your sashes, you can bring it in and do it yourself, or you can hire The Canterbury Place's set-up team to do it at $0.25-$0.75 a chair (the price depends on time needed to attach, please ask your wedding planner for a personalized quote).
On the Hanging Knot tied sash, we added a Chinese Lantern Floral Ball. We made these ourselves. While they are very time consuming to make, they are very beautiful and whimsical. For the DIY tips to do it yourself, check out Once Wed's Blog.
On the Cafe tied sashes we added a paper pinwheel. These pinwheels are a great way to add pattern and color to the sash.
And on the Knot we added a fresh floral. Please contact your florist on pricing for this option.
