  • What Else Botox Can Do to Improve Your Life

    Thermage treatment

    I had a friend who had trained and became a botox technician over the course of time that I knew her and through conversation one day, about her new line of work, tried to convince me to get botox done on my own face. Her first selling point with me was to smooth out crows feet that were apparently forming around my eyes. While this is not something a girl in her 20s wants to hear, it didn’t convince me, it actually put me of a little bit. But I did go to her botox party the first time she threw one, to support her more than anything and I found out some really interesting facts about botox. This prompted me to research and find out a little more about the medicine.

  • 3 Important Things to Keep in Mind When Renting Linens for an Event

    renting linens for an eventPlanning a big event like a wedding or gala can be excruciatingly stressful, and the last thing you should have to deal with is the linens for your party. Thankfully, linen rental companies exist so you can focus more on the big picture and sweat the small stuff less.

    Linen rental companies are great because they do all the work for you, and you don’t have to worry about cleanliness when renting linens for an event. They’ll clean them for you when you’re done, and most policies protect you against any potential normal stains.

    You may already be looking into linen rental, but the overwhelming feeling of event planning could leave you wondering exactly what you’ll need to rent. Regardless of whether you’re planning for a wedding, a baby shower, or any other major event, here are three things you should always consider when renting linens for an event:

  • Tablecloths.
    Your guests need an elegant tablecloth to eat on, and linen rental companies can provide you with just that. It’s important to know exactly how many guests you’ll be having prior to renting, as well as the table measurements of your chosen venue. When it comes to style, consider opting for specialty linen in colors like blush pink, peach, or gold. It gives your room a beautiful vintage look, and your guests will be clamoring as to where you got the idea.
  • Cloth napkins.
    Even the most seasoned veterans in event planning and linens rental make the fatal mistake of forgetting to rent luxurious cloth napkins. They are the ideal way to play off the colors you choose for your tablecloths, and there are endless ways to mix and match the two. For example, sky blue crinkle Taffeta napkins placed on top of a cloud-white tablecloth will make the entire room pop like you wouldn’t imagine. Plus, nobody wants to use paper napkins at an elegant event like a wedding or awards banquet.
  • Chair covers.
    The final step of renting linens for an event should be deciding on chair cover rental. If you’re renting linens for a wedding, it is strongly, strongly recommended that you invest in chair covers. An uncovered chair is unpleasant to look at, and adding chair covers is yet another opportunity to play off the color schemes of your wedding. No matter what type of banquet or folding chair your guests will be sitting on, there are incredible chair colors that will help to make your special day just a little more special.

 
These are just a few of the many ways that linen rental companies can transform your next event into something out of a fairy tale. The ways you can customize your linens are endless, and they’ll make for a night that you and your guests will never forget.
