One of the things that I really focused on while at the tradeshow, was gathering exemplary linen resources for our readers.  I know this is a reception decor area of great interest to our bride readers, and I wanted to be able to report back with a “who’s who” of linen company resources for you.  Some of the companies I will profile in this two part entry my catering company has utilized, and some we were excited to discover!

First up:  Mosaic


Located in my hometown of Pittsburgh, I have had the opportunity to experience first hand the high quality, superior products that this linen firm has to offer.  Shipping direct to brides and caterers nationwide, their tag line says it all: “Your vision.  Our linens.”  They truly have something for every theme, color scheme or event style!  The inspiration board above features some sizzling black and white events, along with fabric samples of their Black with White Azalea (bottom left) and the White Black Lusso (top center).  I’ve also included a snap of their display from the tradeshow (top right) that barely scratches the surface of the amazing range of fabrics available in their collections!

So excited that you want to contact them? I knew you would be!
