With the seemingly limitless linen options available these days – from feather-light organza overlays to sumptuous damasks, and from fun textures to funky prints (zebra stripes anyone?) – it’s never been easier to use the humble tablecloth to really make a statement at your reception. Whatever your palette and whatever your theme, there’s a linen out there that’s just perfect!

 At The Casual Gourmet we work with such a great variety of Cape Cod wedding venues. 

Not surprisingly, many of our couples are going for that classic “Cape Cod beach wedding” look; think colors of sea and sand with pretty preppy touches.  With its ‘Ralph-Lauren-meets-Coastal-Living’ feel, this white-on-navy plaid captures that essence beautifully.   

These photos were taken at an engagement party we catered just recently at Nauticus Marina in Osterville. The classic waterfront location, combined with a menu of clam chowder and lobster rolls served on these adorable linens, all added up to an evening of casual seaside elegance. It was absolutely beautiful and everyone had such a great time!

Another white-on-navy linen that’s red-hot right now is this bold striped option. It’s such a sophisticated and striking way to say ‘beach!’ This would be great on its own throughout a reception or even used as a slight contrast to the plaid; perhaps for your cocktail reception or maybe sprinkled throughout your reception space as an accent on the cake table, the registration table or, if you’re having one, the buffet tables.
