    Review on our Party Fountain!

    centerpiece Ideas Decoration supplies

    We’ve often received requests from customers about instructions on how to assemble the party fountain. Today, we are going to show you how to set up the fountain, and offer some customer testimonials. One of the most common issues that our customers mention is the water not being able to pump up the fountain. If this is your issue, please listen closely to hear if there is sound coming out of the motor after it is plugged in. If there is a sound coming out, then the fountain is working correctly. Turn the white circular part of the motor bowl and the water should have no problem pumping up after that. Please make sure that the water is filled enough for the fountain to be able to pump it. You can also view the video below on how to assemble the fountain: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CT9Q-XuBjSQ If this still does not work, try this second method: Begin by gently turning and twisting off the white round plastic water inlet control ring located at the motor bowl. Slowly and gently take out the black rotor stick located on the motor bowl under the inlet control ring. BE SURE to take out the black rotor stick straight up, and do not bend or tilt even slighty (there should also be a magnet portion located at the bottom tip of the rotor stick). Wash the black motor stick with water so any dirt and residue will come off. Let it dry in cool air in an open space overnight. DO NOT use a blowdryer or any other heat as the black rubber on the rotor stick may melt or misshapen. When all is dry, place parts back into their original place. The fountain should work then. Please see the video in the link below on how to clean the inlet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZvqPDTlrpQ Customer Testimonials: “Now this was a surprise! Very nice for the price. Worked well. Nice light. Didn’t expect the doll. Nice extra. Shipping box could have been better. Overall satisfied.”- Roxanna (WV) ” Wow . we’re speechless! It’s my birdthay today and to see our wedding day again has been an amazing gift!Thank you so much, you have made our precious memories last forever” – Angelica (NY)

  • Fabric Types and Comparisons

    Fabric Types and Comparisons

    Fabric Bolts & Bags

    Often our customers ask about our fabrics. What type of fabric is suitable for your use? How do fabrics differ from each other. It is true that depending on what you’re using the fabric for, different fabrics are appropriate for different projects. Today, we will go over some of the common properties and uses of our fabric bolts.   Textured Slub vs Polyester Fabric Bolt The Textured Slub is one of our newest items. It is similar to our polyester in many ways, such as the weight and the feel, however it’s weaved in a way where the yarns have a pulled and twisted effect, so there is a slight texture on the fabric; similar to what you see on silk shantung or dupioni. This twisting of the fabric is what is called slub. Our polyester is available in a plain weave with no texture, making it sturdy and easy to clean. These types of fabric are perfect for making clothing, drapes and decorations, as well as crafts, and the weight of the fabric makes it a perfect fabric for sewing. These fabrics are only available in solid colors as only. Zebra Stripes Fabric Bolt vs Leopard Spots fabric bolt vs Flocking Damask Fabric Bolt The materials for our Zebra, Leopard and Flocking Damask are practically identical. It begins with a taffeta base, and the patterns are created with velvet. The main difference for each of these different types of fabric is the pattern. These fabrics are perfect decorations and drapes. The soft and light feel of this fabric allows it to fall delicately and beautifully. Crinkle Taffeta Fabric Bolt vs Satin Fabric Both our Crinkle Taffeta and Satin are similar as in they both have a shiny finish and are of a medium weight, but the material itself is very different. The crinkle taffeta fabric bolt is made of our synthetic taffeta material, carefully pressed for a consistent “wrinkly” texture. Its shine is pretty subtle compared to the satin fabric. Our satin fabric is made with a synthetic material, where the yarns are weaved in a way where the fabric emits a nice smooth shine. Both fabrics are similar in weights and drape. If you want your evening to stand out, consider using it for an elegant table runner or sashes, or perhaps even a dress or shawl.   Tulle bolt vs Organza vs Embroider vs Chiffon Fabric Bolt The common trait of these types of fabrics is that they are all sheer, and is very light in weight. Our tulle and organza bolts are both made of a nylon material. Their properties and the way they fall are perfect for making veils and petticoats. Chiffon is very much like our tulle and organza, as they are made with a similar type of synthetic material, however, this material doesn’t hold its shape as well as the tulle and organza when bunched up. It drapes easily, and is perfect for skirts, dresses and curtain panels. Our embroidered line of fabrics is basically our organza, with some flair. Same properties and weight, with an additional leaf and swirl motifs satin embroidered onto it.

    Throw caution to the wind. Let your creativity billow in the sails of style and sophistication. A simple color coordinated wedding is beautiful, timeless, and easily planned. But who cares for that when you can be different! There’s a right time and a wrong time to mismatch colors – and your wedding or birthday is definitely a good time to mix warm and cool shades of chair sashes and throw all caution to the wind. Mix- Match – White When in doubt – put your colors against white. A mix of cool purple, blue, and green shades with complimenting warm peaches and yellow all pop when placed against a white drapery, or chair covers, in this instance. Everyone is Happy It’s hard to make all your guests, both sides of the family, all generations and the bridal party  all happy. But letting people wear their favorite color?  It’s a decent start. Mismatched bridesmaid dresses and even bouquets are all the rage. It’s easy to see why! It’s not just a color wheel! Mix and match patterns? Oh yes please. A medely of antique china – all different patterns is perhaps the cutest table arrangement. Start searching yard sales now! This idea of grouping different patterns is a great way to get a romantic effortlessly, sophisticated look. Images: TableclothsFactory, weddingwindow.com, stylemepretty.com

    Do you need a little inspiration for choosing the perfect wedding color palette? Sure, going with all white or white and black is a flawless choice that works with any season, but why settle for ordinary? If you’re looking for cheap tablecloths and seasonal color inspiration, here are some helpful suggestions. Winter If you’re planning the perfect winter wedding, consider blues and whites for a wintery palette that isn’t too cold! White tablecloths and blue table runners look flawless together and will surely make your event look great.  All white is a common popular option for many winter couples! Adding black chair covers and black napkins is an excellent idea to break up all white décor as well. Spring When it comes to spring, colors are blooming all around. Pink and baby blue are excellent choices for a spring wedding. If you want to really be unique, mix lavender and chocolate brown for a muted and adorable spring look. Pink table runners and sage green tablecloths look absolutely stunning together and will surely make your guests think spring. Summer When it comes to summer, think bold and colorful! Yellow round tablecloths will look great and sun-like, add a royal blue table runner and you’re wedding will sparkle like a summer morning. When it comes to summer, stick with bright colors. You’d be surprised what pairs well! Fall Fall is filled with wonderful colors! Choose a color palette that coincides with the changing leaves outside. Stick with chocolate browns and add color like burnt orange, taupe, or champagne. A chocolate brown tablecloth, burnt orange table runner and champagne chair covers are a perfect combination for a fall event.

    Valentine's Day

    Are you hoping to spend a romantic evening with your partner this Valentine’s Day? We know dinner dates are a key component of many people’s Valentine’s Day plans, but why not skip the restaurant and transform your own kitchen or dining room into a lover’s paradise? Many couples are unable to afford a big extravagant dinner, and turning your own home into a 5-star restaurant is the next best option, and better yet, you’re the only people there! Here are some tips on how to celebrate a romantic Valentine’s Day without making reservations or even leaving the house:   Cover your table with one of our beautiful satin tablecloths. Opt for passionate and sexy colors such as red, or go with a classic black or white. Save the paper napkins for your next barbecue! Set linen napkins or satin napkins out for this special evening. Setting linen napkins out in a heart shape is an excellent way to convey your love. (Refer to our last blog post on how to do fold fun napkins or try this fun idea we spotted in the picture!) Now that tablecloths and napkins are covered, it’s time to start planning the menu. Consider cooking a three-course meal! Look for new and exciting recipes to try and really sweep your partner off their feet. If you ever wanted to try something culinary crazy, here’s your chance to let your foodie flag fly. Opt for candle light or low light in your dining area. If your home has a fireplace, a romantic and unconventional dinner in front of the fire will really heat things up. Tablecloths also make great picnic blankets if you decide to dine in an unconventional way. Have fun with your romantic dinner! If you make a mess, clean it up the next day. Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate your love!
