One of the best things about being in the special event industry are the amazing, creative connections that we’ve made – in the San Francisco Bay Area, and all around the world! The incredible Very Mary Inspired invited us to take part in her Sketchbook Series, a workshop for creative professionals; whether we were sending gorgeous linens for attendees to sketch or hosting a workshop in our showroom, we have loved being a part of her classes! Now she is taking the Sketchbook Series all around the country, and we are so excited to be going with her (at least, our linens are)! Next stop – Maui!

Tomorrow is the workshop in Maui, where Hawaiian event professionals will learn to bring their designs and concepts to life through incredible, creative sketches. Mary is touring the US after that, with stops in Sacramento, Atlanta, LA, and New York City! Check out upcoming cities and classes here!

We were delighted to be a part of The Sketchbook Series East Bay in a big way, by playing host to some of the Bay Area’s most talented event designers and florists in our newly refurbished showroom! True to the spirit of the class, Mary sketched a phenomenal dessert bar to inspire attendees, realizing her vision with Bay Area dessert and design specialists Honeycomb Events & Design. They turned each, intricate detail of her design into delicious reality with a modern, geometric display in a playful palette of aqua, yellow, and coral. A cheerful, patterned cake from The Whole Cake added a fun pop to the geometric inspired treats, asymmetrical backdrop, and hanging gem chandelier, while Soul Flower Design Studio provided truly gorgeous floral designs to accent the spread and our showroom. We picked up her palette with linens in soft shades of aqua, with our raw silk Faux de Soie Aqua and geometric Tetris Aqua Table Runners. We are so excited

We have something a little delightfully different to share today – at least when it comes to linens! The fabulous ladies at Walnut Creek bridal salon Kinsley James Couture got in touch with us when they needed some fabulous gold and champagne linens for their exclusive preview of the latest collection by Galia Lahav Haute Couture! This lovely event was just featured on Confetti Daydreams!

Galia Lahav’s latest collection celebrated Tales of the Jazz Age with romantic, glamorous gowns, so the ladies at Kinsley James pulled out all the stops for an Art Deco themed soiree to allow local brides to see the gowns in person. Petite Pomme Design had already decked out the salon with glittering gold decor for the holidays, which was a perfect fit for the theme. They tied everything together with our Lamour Cashmere linens for an elegant, champagne dessert table, and metallic Marrakesh Ivory and Gold linens on cocktail tables. Enchantment Floral provided gorgeous pink and berry arrangements in gold honeycomb vases to accent the tables with rich color!

We can’t leave out the gowns, of course! Galia Lahav is one of the go-do designers for vintage glam bridal style and her latest collection is no exception. The plunging backs make a gorgeous statement for a modern bride with a bombshell soul, especially when paired with intricate details and sparkling beadwork.

We could not be more excited to share our win The Knot Best of Weddings for 2015! It’s especially thrilling because this is the third year in a row that our amazing couples have helped us achieve this amazing accolade!

Napa Valley Linens is Voted Best of the Knot for 3 Years in a Row!

This year the bar was set especially high, per our very official press release announcing the win –

“In 2015, only 2% of the 250,000 local wedding professionals listed on TheKnot.com have received this distinguished accolade.  The Knot Best of Weddings provides a by-couples, for-couples guide to the top wedding professionals across the country. To determine the winners, The Knot assessed a sample of almost one million real reviews across the various vendor categories—venues, musicians, florists, photographers, caterers and more—that a bride or groom would want in order to inspire, plan and pull off their own unique wedding.”

We could not be more grateful to the amazing couples who made us a part of their wedding day and took the time to review us, making us eligible for the accolade. Of course, we could never have done it without the fantastic wedding and event professionals who have collaborated and worked with us over the years!

We’re jumping from wine country to the big city with today’s shoot – a glamorous rooftop wedding in the heart of New York City! An amazing team of Bay Area wedding pros headed to the East Coast to bring this urban glam bridal shoot to life. Our frequent collaborator and designer extraordinaire Christine Cater Wedding and Event Floral Design asked us if we would like to be a part of the magic and of course, we said yes!

Seen the rest on Grace Ormonde!

This talented team from the Bay Area braved chilly NYC winter winds to capture this wildly glam shoot at the Tribeca Rooftop Lounge. Wintery silver pieces and mirrored elements gave the decor a crisp, modern look that was perfect for the city surroundings, along with chic black and white details. Grace Aston Photography wowed us with her incredible portraits of an elegant city bride in a La Sposa gown, with a feather adorned bodice and fluttering chiffon skirt. A pair of jeweled Prada heels added a welcome hint of rich color in the Pantone Color of the Year, Marsala. As much as we love the sparkling silver cocktail station in our signature Paris Silver and the amazing ombre purple florals, our favorite detail has to be the adorable dog in a striped ribbon tie!
