one tablecloth, four looks

Mixing and matching table linens and tableware is my favorite way to set tables. It gives a tablescape that "je ne sais quoi", and keeps it from looking too staged. 

Stripes and checks are really the most fun to play around with, so when I recently received a gorgeous Capri Stripe Navy Blue tablecloth from Solino Home, I decided to style it 4 different ways, using 4 different Solino Home napkins.

Each individual napkin style was used in a unique way for each table. I had fun with flowers, different china patterns and themes for all four tables. Here’s a peek at the first one…


For the first look, I used the Jolie Fleur napkins with a variety of blue and white accents, like transferware dinner plates, French salad plates and Wedgwood Jasperware accessories.


Pink peonies make this whole look pop, as do the vintage raffia placemats that provide a pretty textural contrast.


A lot of vintage tableware adds to the “coastal grandmother” look of this table. The stem glasses are my favorite touch, as the etched flowers echo the pretty Jolie Fleur pattern of the napkins.

The second look features both the tablecloth and napkins in the Capri Stripe pattern, but in different colors.


We’re sticking with the navy-blue Capri Stripe for the tablecloth and adding the Capri Ticking Stripe in the Natural color way for the napkins.


I paired blue and white transferware with brown and white transferware for a nod to the color combination of the table linens. Each place setting has different china patterns and plate combinations.


Texture is again brought in with different placemats. This time it's my shell-trimmed placemats to which I add this pretty bamboo flatware that I love so much.


Whimsical Monarch butterflies and chamomile flowers add a sentimental touch to the table.


The third look is so perfect for summer and all the red, white and blue parties that go hand-in-hand with summer entertaining.


Big, bold Red Buffalo Check napkins pair perfectly with the navy stripes of the tablecloth. I chose fun Shasta daisies to brighten up the center of the table.


This is a fun brunch or breakfast look for summer. Casual, but still pretty. This time the texture comes in the form of my reliable Serena & Lily raffia placemats and my new set of wicker napkin rings.


A big bowl of strawberries, croissants, coffee and toast are the perfect ingredients for this setting.

The last napkin option that I chose is the navy and white French Stripe Napkin. Stripes on stripes? Why not? The color is the same, so it works here.


Blue transferware plates set on solid white farmhouse plates creates a clean and crisp look with the linens. 

Vintage placemats, bright pink hydrangeas from the garden and vibrant blue goblets round off the fourth look for this pretty linen tablecloth.


All-in-all, I’m really impressed by the quality and look of the 100% linen napkins and tablecloths from Solino Home.

The classic stripes and patterns they offer make it so easy to set a pretty table.


Be sure to check back soon for all the details and lots more pictures of how each one of these four tables came together. I'll be doing an individual blog post for each one of these unique tablescapes, so I hope to see you soon here on Ciao Newport Beach.
