The Evolution of Vintage: Vintage Opulence

All things retro and vintage have had a serious moment in the party-planning world as of late. But change is coming as this popular trend evolves into the next big thing: Vintage Opulence!

Highlighted by the popular Great Gatsby remake, coupled with mid-century inspired industrialism, metallics are seeping into traditional vintage themed event decor and creating one stylish statement! Vintage Opulence is part romantic, part 70s-chic and loads of glam. Expect to see a lot of gold and silver contrasted by layers of texture and pattern.  Mason Jars will be replaced by Mecury Glass and soft color palettes will find room for a bold accent.  And we can’t wait!  Below are some of our inspiring images curated from around the web highlighting this trend to come.

Metallic Moment: Victorian Gold Luxe Linens

We were delighted to showcase our  Victorian Gold Luxe Linens at the 2013 Heritage Ball. Gold linens certainly create a statement but are much more versatile than you may expect. Pair these with crystal chandeliers and lavish centerpieces for elegant extravagance. Or put them with our  rustic cross-back chairs for a relaxed romantic effect. The possibilities are endless.

These linens will be popular during the holiday season and now is the time to begin thinking about your holiday party’s decor. We offer a wide range of linens to choose from in our  Speciality Line and our staff is happy to help you choose the perfect look for your event.

3 Tips to Keep Metallics Classy and Chic!

Metallics add an instant allure and warmth to any event or home decor.  However, when working with shiny metals, it’s easy to quickly take your metallics from classy to tacky.  Below we share our best tips on incorporating metallics to create a breathtaking result whether you’re hosting at home or away.

1. Make metallics your focal point. A stunning gold coffee table or gilded mirrors create dramatic impact in a room as a focal point without overwhelming the space.  A cake table draped in a gold linen or glittering chandelier over your buffet table will create a similar effect for a special occasion.

2. Mix your metallic details. Throw pillows printed in metallic gold and silver (shown below with other inspiring images curated from the web) are a modern detail to any space, and by mixing two or three different metallics you create unfussy layers and avoid an over-done, matchy-matchy look.  Effortless style is what you are after.

3. Keep it subtle. When in doubt, less is more. Style your home using metallics as an accent such as book covers, a gold lamp or bronzed paper weights.  For your next dinner party, subtle accents on a tablescape such as a metallic placecard holder or gold-rimmed china create a dazzling affect.
