I was emailing with Chrissy, our event and banquet coordinator for Hizon’s catering the other day. I was asking about the specifics of our wedding reception. Like, what type of linens and table of cloth do they use or what colors of linens do they have.
I initially wanted our reception to be all white! White table cloths, white linen accompanied by white calla lilies. Then to break the monotony, I will just add pink and purple cupcakes from Ate Lala and Ate Jiji in the center of each table or where the napkins will be placed.
I was so resigned with this idea… and then it hit me. Why do I really like all white? So I thinked hard for the reason why I wanted white, and here are some of them:
- because I didn’t want to have other colors to clash with the dresses of my entourage
- because I don’t know what type of cloth Hizon’s use for the linens
- because I’m afraid the reception will look like a debutant’s ball
- because, because, because
So, I really pressed Chrissy and asked her to give me a sample of pink linen that they use in receptions. Low and behold, she sent me pictures of what it will look like and I instantly fell in love with the idea and the color and the cloth!!!
The type of linen they use is organza. I love the way this pink appeared even in picture! Even how the way the ribbon was tied was nice! I fell in love with the idea and I immediately said to Chrissy that this was the color pink to use.
I’m so excited to see the actual linen during our next Philippines vacation in July or August!
