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.

My table always looks great and my friends and family appreciate the effort. Even a simple white linen table cloth like Marbella (pictured below) with a single hemstitch can elevate your dining table. You can coordinate the tablecloth with matching placemats or napkins and you’re ready for entertaining…… yourself or your family!
