At La Tavola there is no better way to dress your table in style than with linens! There are so many different types of fabrics to play with and each set their own tone. Here we are breaking down some of our favorite party pairings for you. That’s right – we are matching the fabric to the party!

Dress Your Table: All the Fabrics

Velvet – The hottest fabric of the moment, velvet is quickly becoming a classic at any style of event but often seen at high style weddings and fashionable dinner parties because of the rich style the fabric emanates off of the table.

Cotton – A natural fiber that is soft and breathable. Cotton is the go-to at outdoor parties with an informal vibe.

Linen – An earthy, rustic feeling fabric that is a more formal alternative to cotton. Linen is commonly seen at outdoor summer soirees.

Organza – This sheer, thin fabric is classic at weddings, but because it’s less durable it is commonly used as an accent table for a spotlight cake or for a sweetheart table.

Taffeta – Known to be slightly iridescent, this crisp, smooth fabric is stunning as both a stand-alone leading-linen and seamlessly paired underlay or overlay giving the table a more modern, clean look. Taffeta is super versatile – it can elevate outdoor events with its light weight feel or is a good option for indoor events that want a flowy formal vibe.

Raw silk – A textured woven fabric of spun silk that is really popular for weddings and fundraisers. Raw or spun silk naturally has a little shine but has more movement than taffeta.

Sequins – Sequin linens stand out and create a sexy vibe.  They are most commonly used on accent tables at weddings or award shows.

Lace – A delicate and romantic open fabric that works great for bridal or baby showers and weddings.

A recent feature we were highlighted in on shows how easy renting can be all over the country!

“La Tavola is my go-to to for table linens,” writes Washington D.C. based blogger Ashley Hafstead. “Think of them as the Rent the Runway for your entertaining needs when it comes to fine linens!  La Tavola reduces the stress of entertaining by making it so easy to find the perfect linen.  And the best part is how easy the entire process is.”
