Jet Black tablecloths were chosen to cover the event’s 50 tables.

Runners and napkins were in eye-catching Turquoise Sea adding a striking contrast and providing the perfect backdrop to a sumptuous three-course dinner.

32 solid colours to choose from

With the Special Occasion Linen range available in 32 solid colours, organisers were able to choose exactly the right shades for the event to precisely match this year’s ‘Now is the time…’ theme and contemporary colour pallet.

The gala dinner was held during the annual two-day Hotel General Managers’ Conference – presented by the Master Innholders – a well-respected, prestigious force within the hotel industry.

Because many of the 475 guests attending the dinner run the UK’s top luxury hotels where high standards are upheld, it was imperative that organisers left no small detail to chance and the linens used for table settings at the dinner were no exception.

And staff at Special Occasion Linen, whose clients include leading businesses, leisure and sporting events, alongside private parties and charity functions, handpick each product for every order. Each order is then delivered by courier to the venue the day before an event which ensures they arrive in mint condition.

The efficient delivery and returns service, which sees used linens placed in pre-labelled collection bags before being collected by courier, is also another reason why Special Occasion Linen is a top choice for busy organisers of such high-profile events.

We were delighted with the vibrant linen supplied by Special Occasion Linen – it really helped provide the added wow factor to this year’s gala dinner, which is one of the highlights of our annual conference. It was wonderful to have the ability to choose from their extensive range of colourful linen and work alongside the hotel to create a really impactful table setting
