Buyer beware! My fiancé and I were looking at renting Farm Tables for our wedding and opted against it due to the high cost. Instead, we met with Special O as they were highly recommended by several vendors. The linens are slightly dated - we were looking for crisp, clean ivory... Read More linens with blush napkins... these were not available. After we made our selections that we thought we were happy with, we got our quote. HOLY STICKER SHOCK! It was nearly $1,200 to rent linens so we passed! That was just as expensive as renting custom farm tables. Save your self a pretty penny and BUY your linens! We spent less than $400 on every linen for our wedding from http://www.linentablecloth.com Save your budget girls!

Gorgeous linens, and Claudia is an artist!

Claudia is truly an artist, and we were fortunate to work with her on the linen and color-scheming for my wedding reception. We had booked the reception at the Hershey Country Club, which was a great location for our families, but the club's ballroom has a carpet that is super... Read More wild. It is a difficult room to master with regard to color. After booking the venue, my Mom and I went first to Claudia to get guidance on color for linen. We took with us my "inspiration book" with photos of color combinations that I loved and a clear sense of the mood we wanted to create, and we brainstormed. With Claudia's guidance, we landed on a perfect color combination that would have presence in the room, quiet the crazy carpet, and provide the perfect backdrop for my wedding colors that would take center stage in flowers, bridesmaids dresses, etc. On the day of the event, Claudia's linen sparkled, and we received so many wonderful comments about how gorgeous the room looked, both from guests and from other vendors who were setting up in the space. The reception was everything we had dreamed that it would be, and it all started with Claudia's color inspiration and the foundation she helped us lay for the design of the room. She is an amazing talent.
