“…thanking you for your outstanding support and response to our tornado dilemna on the Friday, prior to our Highland Games. In this day of dwindling service & response to emergencies, your actions at that time were exemplary. Had you not come through, we certainly would have been in a tight spot.”

Bold Colours

Posted: Sep 15, 10:40 PM Permanent Link

Fall 2014 has finally arrived and everyone is back into the swing of things. Host your next party and be the hot topic of the fall season with bold colour combinations in your linens and decorations. Compliment your black and white safety shades with a pop of tangerine or lime, and show off your style with bright colours like deep emerald and caution yellow.
Prove to guests that you’ve got class, displaying your knowledge of this fall’s hottest trends. Choosing the right colour can change the whole feel of an event. Soften up and tone down your style with carnation, toffee, or even lilac for a more sensitive and delicate look. Shades of red, like aurora red, create a more glamorous mood, a sophisticated look of flare and spunk, while purples, like dark orchid, show off elegance, inspiring a sense of femininity. Greens, like cypress, have a towering presence, pairing well with your glamorous or elegant colours.
If you are in a bind for a fast approaching fall wedding, try warm colour combinations to match the scenery and add glow to your special day. Bold shades of red and yellow add to the lively feel every wedding needs, but do not forget to compliment your warm tone with a bright boost from elsewhere on the colour wheel.
Bold colours are a must this fall season, so get planning your next event with flare and be the highlight of Fall 2014.

Posted: Jan 12, 04:48 PM Permanent Link

When it comes to colours this year, it seems like anything goes! For our upcoming wedding season, we are seeing a whole rainbow of colour schemes from pinks and deep purples to silver and greys. Black and white is still very popular but we are also seeing a resurgence in dark and royal blues on white. And for something completely different, our Istanbul cloths have caught more than a few eyes this year with their golds, reds and greens combined for that Morrocan look!

Linens are what sets the tone for any table. Come check out our unique linen style and colour selections. Let your imagination run wild and don’t worry about being out of style because apparently, ANYTHING GOES!!

Rental Makes Economic Sense!

Posted: Jan 21, 12:24 PM Permanent Link

2009 is shaping up to be a very unique year for many of us. In a time of economic uncertainty, cut-backs and down-sizing, we are all being more discretionary in our spending habits. More thought is to be given as to where best we are to use our resources.
Rental has always been a great alternative to purchasing items that you may only use once, or for items that have a purchase price that is way beyond the casual consumers means. Why would you go buy a set of 36 wine glasses that may cost you hundreds of dollars and you may only use a couple of times a year, when you can rent those same glasses for less than $13.00 – and you don’t even have to wash them!!
