Turkey Time. Thanksgiving Table Linens

08 Nov 2013 › Posted by Schweitzerlinen

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, from the colors of the season to the gathering with friends and family, Thanksgiving is a special time of year.  Each year I meticulously plan a Thanksgiving dinner and spend more time setting my table than cooking the turkey! I enjoy bringing in seasonal accessories like turkey salt & pepper shakers, cornucopia center pieces and fall confetti to brighten up my table.  It elevates it to a whole new level.  In the past I have used a white damask tablecloth, like Breton and added accessories.  Last year I purchased the Harvest tablecloth with matching napkins featuring colorful pumpkin and corn embroidery.  I still added seasonal accessories, but just scaled it back a bit.  From classic all white to intricate embroideries or farm designs, enjoy Thanksgiving with your unique table setting.
