Thanksgiving Table Linens

The most important factors when it comes to Thanksgiving include getting together with friends and family in gratitude and, of course, the food. There are many more things that are important to you, as the host or hostess of Thanksgiving dinner, and having seasonal Thanksgiving table linens is one of them. A terrific way to decorate your dining room for the feast instantly, Williams-Sonoma offers you a wide selection of choices so that your table is ready for every last guest come Thanksgiving Day.


A tablecloth is an excellent way to protect your table from scratches, spills and other accidents during a large gathering, but it also has the capacity to bring a tone of joyful warmth to the table. Look for autumn-themed tablecloths with familiar motifs. Sunflowers and pumpkins are both excellent ideas for a Thanksgiving spread. If you’re into classic and elegant tradition, a turkey-themed tablecloth is also a wise idea. You are also able to choose from a collection of table runners as well, adding an air of sophistication to your dining space. Similar motifs also work well here, but also consider a simple table runner or tablecloth with fall colors. Everything from the color of harvest corn to a muted orange helps enliven your table, getting it ready for the ultimate feast. Off-white colors and plaid designs also work well. While they are not a predominantly fall or Thanksgiving idea, the neutral colors work well with the rest of your tabletop decor, complementing your existing style.


Linen napkins are another Thanksgiving essential. Choose napkins that match either your tablecloth or runner or opt for solid colors that match with your current tablecloth and ensemble easily. Make sure to have each place setting dazzle with copper or brass napkin rings to add a classic shine, along with place card holders and place cards so that every guest knows where he or she should sit.


At each place setting, it’s also customary to use a charger plate or even a place mat. Match place mats with other linens for a polished look. Lastly, finish off your table with a little decoration. Seasonal candles are an exceptional idea for your Thanksgiving meal. Opt for tapered candles with matching turkey holders for a joyful, festive mood or choose large votive candles instead. Copper and brass-colored candleholders and lanterns easily complement any palette of fall decor, bringing a beautiful shine to your holiday spread.
