A few days ago we received a call from a representative of an event venue. He said that he had found a bag of our linens but did not know which client or event it was from. Now, for most linen companies this would present a problem because a lot of effort would have to go into finding the order that corresponded with that bunch of linens.
La Tavola, on the other hand, uses an RFID system – or Radio Frequency Identification system – that allows us to track each item in our inventory with a tag and scanner. Once the used linens are returned to our warehouse, they are immediately scanned and tracked in our computer system. Thus, we know instantly which order they belong to!

The sunny seasons of Spring and Summer allow us to take advantage of the outdoors. Blooming hillsides and beautiful weather provide the ideal setting for an event outside. Here are some linens that seamlessly compliment an outdoor environment.

For a serene and subtle, sophisticated look, Willow is a perfect match. The color combination of white linen with light pink thread sewn into the willows lends itself beautifully to an English garden motif or even mountain elegance. The possiblities are endless!

If you want to add a little fire and flair to your event, Ottoman Spice will give your event that perfect pick-me-up. The color is brilliant and warm, and at the same time does not draw too much attention to itself. Appropos for a Moroccan or Meditarranean inspired event.

Beach anyone? This salmon-colored Shells linen brings the perfect freshness and ocean-side elegance to an event. If you don’t want your whole event adorned in a shell pattern, this linen works marvelously on a cake table or accent table.

Bouque Fuchsia certainly brings out the zing in Spring! Bright colors work beautifully with a grassy foreground and look stunning below a blue sky. The florals can also pop and be zany or modern with this versatile linen.

Emma Apple is a whimsical yet classy linen that contributes to a lush feel for an event. Any color can go under the overlay to mix colors and serve to bring in the floral palette. This linen also comes in Lemongrass Yellow and is a perfect reflection of the outdoor scene.
