Mostly As — Backyard Picnic

Invite a few friends over for a day of pool, fun, and food. Order in from your local bistro or turn up the grill for an easy meal. Use our Linen Placemats and beach blankets to get that authentic picnic feel.

Mostly Bs — Girls Lunch

It’s been far too long since the last time you got together with the girls. Mix and match our pink, grey, and taupe linens for the perfect tablescape, and finish it off with a whimsical floral arrangement to set the mood. Swap out your regular vases for our tumblers to really make a statement.

Mostly Cs — Formal Dinner Party

You miss dressing up and going out to fancy restaurants with acclaimed chefs. No reason you can’t bring that experience home. Dress up your dining room table with our Linen Tablecloth, like Geoffrey Zakarian, and cook your friends a meal they won’t soon forget.
