Textile Tuesday

Once again in honor of the holiday season and all the entertaining that is about to happen we will be selecting textiles that are already made into tablecloths, runners, and napkins.  All these things are essential items when planning a gathering of friends and family.  No one wants to scratch their tables with all the serving dishes that will be passed around.  As we know, not every gathering is the same.  Some of us keep our gathering very casual, while others use the holidays as a chance to get fancy.  Below are our picks for your casual and fancy gatherings. 

Casual Entertaining:


Burlap is a great choice for a casual gathering.  It is neutral enough to work with any of the décor and place settings you already own while adding a natural touch to the space.  We love this Burlap tablecloth and runner from Couleur Nature.  The solid color also allows it to be paired with any patterned dishes or napkins you choose.

Pair the runner or tablecloth with these Herringbone Striped Napkins from Williams Sonoma.  We love the warm harvest colors of the stripes which are the perfect pick for any fall event.   The fabric has a relaxed look and feel which is perfect for any casual gathering.


If you are not a fan of stripes or are looking to inject a little brighter pop of color then look no further than your local Pier1 store.  We selected the citrus napkins that come in a bright orange and green color adding just the right amount of color to your table.

Fancy Entertaining:

Galles tablecloth

If your gathering is going to be a little more upscale then we have a couple options for you.  If you are not one to match every last detail with the same color and pattern then we love the Pardi Galles Tablecloths from Neiman Marcus.  Handcrafted of a linen/cotton blend in Italy, the neutral color of these ivory/black tablecloths will work with any décor, table setting, and napkin choice.  We love the subtle pattern without it being too overwhelming.


If you would like to add a little color to the space you can pair the above tablecloth with the Khadhi Laundered Linen Napkins from Couleur Nature.  The fabric of each will look nice when placed together and they are offered in multiple colors depending on how much color you would like to add to the space.  We like the Natural/Red Stripe if you are looking to add a small hint of color and the Mustard/Grey Stripe if you are looking to add a nice pop of color to your space.  Both are great fall colors for your holiday celebrations.


If matching everything is more what you would like to do then we love this collection from Neiman Marcus.  The MacKenzie-Childs Parchment Check Table Linens are a beautiful shade of taupe and gold, setting your table with the perfect background for your fancier get together.  The collection includes tablecloths, table runner, table topper, and a round and square placemat, as well as napkins.
