Sharing resources for items that I use and love is always a top request, and so I thought I would share table linen resources with you today. I hope you find these tabletop tips useful as you create beautiful tables for your family and friends. Just as a side note, these are items that I have purchased for my own collection and are not gifted items. I truly saw them, liked them, and ordered them :) I am not advertising or including affiliate links.
This spring, I have enjoyed using block printed tablecloths and napkins from India Amory. I like the simple ribbon and bow pattern that she incorporated into her spring line. It gives a subtle pattern and a little bit of color, but still lets the dishes and flowers have the biggest impact. I am often drawn to prints with a white background- I like how the white lets most anything coordinate well. You can see, below, how I used it the same pattern in blue with Brian's Lava Cakes.
And, with Julie's fondant toppers on Brian's lava cakes~ The block printed tablecloths come in a variety of patterns and colors. I chose the ribbons but you may find something different that would work even better for you!
I recently ordered this beautiful tablecloth from Loralee Lewis~ she also has matching napkins. The colors and the patterns are so pretty and will be great for so many different occasions.
Another great resource for tablecloths is Close to Custom Linens. The photo below shows my favorite pattern that I bought from them. They even made it to match the dimensions of our table- so don't be afraid to ask them to customize the size or shape. This same pattern that I bought in white with green is also available in white with blue and white with khaki. It fabric pattern is called Imperial Lattice.
Fenwick & Fields is a company that is new and has a selection of beautiful solids and patterns. There is an option to have them embroidered before they ship, and so you can choose from their selected styles before you check out- or leave them without embroidery. They are fabulous on their own. I love every single one of their items and the different shapes of placemats that they offer.
When you just cannot find what you're hoping for in a ready-made tablecloth, visit a local fabric store or search online for fabric. I do this all of the time with my daughter's teenage Supper Club. I cut the fabric with a little extra around the sides and then ask my dry cleaner to add a hem. The hem will keep the edges from fraying when you wash the fabric. I use this trick more than any other so that I can what suits my color scheme or theme. Here is an example of fabric being used for a table cloth- you could also use it as a topper or runner, if needed.
I hope these tips help you find the right look for your tables! I am always happy to answer any questions if I can help with anything. Just leave a comment below and let me know! Happy table decorating!
