Preparing a holiday meal is a major event on many levels. It involves meal planning as well as food preparation. It also involves creating a wonderful environment for guests to enjoy the meal. The right choice of Thanksgiving tablecloths can really help to set a mood and tie together the festive look of the table setting for this type of event. From the plates to the centerpiece to the napkins, every element has to come together to create an event that’s as enjoyable as it is memorable.
When choosing Thanksgiving tablecloths it’s important to consider how the tablecloth will tie in the many pieces that will be on the table during the meal. The color, whether it’s a bold seasonal color like red or orange, or something more neutral to act as a backing for decorative plates, should work as a unifier. In some ways, a tablecloth is a sort of palette onto which the decorative pieces are painted. A great centerpiece also adds greatly to the overall impact of the table. A centerpiece in dried flowers with ribbons or an assemblage of pumpkins and dried corn can also work beautifully as a part of the overall picture. The host or hostess should play with different ideas before settling on a final look in this crucial element.
Some hostesses gravitate towards neutral tones in ivory or beige in tablecloths chosen for this holiday. Those colors, which are often used in patterned and textured tablecloths by Lenox and Waterford, create a feeling of serenity at the table that’s very appealing. These neutral colors work well with matching cloth napkins or with napkins in white. Napkin rings in metal by Kate Spade help finish the picture beautifully.
Lauren by Ralph Lauren is another line that uses neutrals in table linens to create a feeling of timeless luxury. The linens from this line are featured in paisley textures in black and white that mix and match seamlessly. Choose these table linens for a look of understated opulence that adds a little drama as well.
