The Cateys 2013 19.02.2013

It may only be February but the sun is shining and the countdown is on to Cateys 2013. It's a special ceremony this year as The Catey's celebrate it's 30th anniversary.

Held as always at The Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel, it has played a crucial part in the life of fashionable London since 1929. The Great Room hosted grand gala balls in the 1930s and has been London society's favourite venue for eight decades.

Since their inception in 1984, the Cateys have cast a spotlight on the industry’s high flyers, strongest performers and hottest brands. Over more than a quarter of a century, they have become a byword for quality, class and achievement, the awards that everybody wants to win. No wonder then that the industry refers to them as its Oscars Night.

This years event  takes place on Tuesday 2nd July 2013 and Northfields are really proud to be an associate once again. Check us out on

As we draw closer we'll let you in on anything that may be of interest, though of course we'll keep the actual winners hidden, partly because it wouldnt be fair for us to divulge but mainly because we haven't got a clue either.


Rugby Six Nations

Don't forget two important games this Saturday. 

Scotland v Wales (Murryfied) and England v Italy (Twickenham).  We're proud to be providing table linen for some of the after match official events.

It's arrived!

Our beautifully woven ivory linen has finally arrived and already we're taking bookings for it. Team it with our Natural table runner and napkins to show off your table(s) with pride. Also take a look at us on Instagram @northfieldslinen for further table setting ideas.

Coming soon

We're counting down the days to the exciting arrival of our new and improved ivory table linen and napkins.  Aside from white, ivory has long been an iconic favourite for our couples.  So we set our extraordinary team of skilled cloth merchants the task of creating a beautiful ivory yarn, smooth to the touch and delightfully alluring to the eye.  I'm please to say they didn't let us down.

'So what goes with ivory?' I hear you say.  Well pink and yellow based grey compliment ivory beautifully, creating a playful, soft, romantic backdrop for both the traditional and modern wedding; or you can go the other way with black/navy.  Ivory and aqua will give your wedding a calming effect.  Alternatively, why not mix the shades of vanilla and cream, bringing a soft and cosy feel to your big day.  But don't forget to add texture and pattern when combining with ivory's colour tone.  Our Cream Bentley and Natural Hemp napkins would be the perfect compliment.

Whatever you decide, we'll keep you posted.
