From the 17th to the 19th centuries, orangeries were built on the grounds of prominent residences. These classic buildings are comparable to a greenhouse or conservatory. There are quite a few well preserved orangeries around today. They are a great setting for elegant soirees and daytime tea or brunch. You may be wondering where the name orangery originated. During the time that these buildings were constructed, their original use was as a place where citrus trees would spend the winter. Linens are the best fabric to dress up events in the orangery. The elegance of fine linens matches perfectly with the classic architectural form of the orangery. From the linen curtains to the beautifully folded linen napkins, there is nothing more tasteful than a linen-clad affair.
