The Story of Linen Effects

 

In 1990, Don Jensen was trying to create “the perfect look” for his client’s event.  Try as he might, there were no black table skirts or colored table linens for rent in the Twin Cities area.  Linen Effects was founded on the belief that every event should be spectacular. 
 
Since then, Linen Effects has grown steadily to be the Twin Cities premier vendor for table linens, chiavari chairs, tabletop decor, chair covers, backdrops, and ceiling draping.  Leading hotels, event venues, professional event planners, and country clubs in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area use Linen Effects when they desire a superior product, excellent service and a most extraordinary event.
 
Remember, when you use Linen Effects, only the bride was more beautifully dressed.
