Check It Out: Top Looks from BBJ Linen’s Summer Lookbook!

If you’re like me, you love table linen design—and you love seeing beautiful pictures of design ideas even more! That’s why I’m so excited that BBJ Linen released its summer lookbook full of gorgeous table linen patterns used in real-life events. Here are some of my favorite highlights from the book!


Lots of Radiant Orchid

At the beginning of this year, I told you to expect a lot of Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s official color for the year, to be popping up in table linen—and I was right! This purple shade has made its way into some of the most popular rental linen designs, including everything from Lavender Zuri to Radiant Miramar and more. I love how BBJ uses its Radiant Orchid table linen with purple-infused accents, like mauve charger plates and indigo floral centerpieces. The designs make the most of purple without being overwhelming—exactly what you need for your tablescape!

Jazzing up Neutrals

Think neutral colors are boring? Think again! BBJ Linen’s line of soft shades in colors like tan, champagne, gray and more prove that even a basic color can be beautiful. I especially love how their designers used these colors for the sequin patterns. Take the Gold Sequin Chevron table runner, for example. Paired a light tan rental table linen, gold charger plates and white roses, the look is anything but ordinary! The final table design looks contemporary and polished.

Touches of Pink

Radiant Orchid may be the color of the year, but coral is one of the hottest colors for summer. I like how BBJ Linen used this shade for the table’s napkins and centerpiece to accent its white tablecloth and overlay. For added contrast, their designers tied tangerine bows around clear ghost chairs. The overall look created just the right balance of color for the overall design!

Totally Unique Rental Table Linen

For me, the best part about this lookbook is how fresh and new these rental table linen designs are. These are fabrics I truly have not seen done anywhere else. The Ivory Corsage table linen is stylish staple for summertime weddings—both indoors and outdoors. The sparkles on the Ivory Gabriella and Platinum Tori table runners are all eye catching. These table linen designs are truly phenomenal and will bring a little sparkle to any event!
