Cue The Cool Hues! With Spring finally in the air, it is time to awake the senses and emerge from the lethargy that keeps many of us in hibernation through the winter months. As the weather starts to warm, we love to think about hip new ways to celebrate the season, and have found some unexpectedly COOL ways to do so.
To add some inspiration to your entertaining plans, here are some fun ideas to try. Consider toasting the season with a drink that is both easy to make and chillingly delicious. We adore this Uber-chic silver tequila martini presentation. For clients planning outdoor weddings in the warmer months, why not consider a personalized ceremony program which can double as a fan to cool down your guests? And of course, for anyone entertaining this Spring, you must use some hip cool linens, right? We have included some of our top linen picks from our new 2018 collections which will, no doubt, create décor that is both COOL in hue and tone, and HAUTE in design!
ICE CHILLED SILVER MARTINI
QUICK AND COLD
This tasty take on classic martini is the perfect menu addition for any party. With a rim dipped in edible silver flakes, your guests won’t be able to resist. Adding pink grapefruit juice and a rind twist provides both a splash of color and an extra burst of flavor. Serve it up Arctic cold and raise a glass!

CUE THE COOL HUES WITH MOSAIC LINENS
Spring represents a time of year when flowers begin to bloom and, in many parts of the country, trees finally start to turn green again, While many clients gravitate towards bright spring colors in their tablecloths, we also find our clients think outside the box and request cool hues for their linens. Taupe, silver, putty, platinum and cooler neutral shades never seem to go out of style. Whether you are looking to keep the palette calm & serene or want to add some florals and blooming branches to your tabletop that explode with color, you cannot go wrong with cool toned linens. Here are some of our new 2018 favs!
