elegant table linens for the holidays


Oh, how I love a pretty tablecloth! One swoosh of fabric over your table, and it’s instantly transformed into something out of a magazine! 

There’s no denying I have a passion for beautiful table linens, and August Table is among my top 3 choices whenever I’m setting a pretty table.

A lovely tablecloth with matching napkins is the best way to start your table setting, and then all the pieces seem to fall into place.

Recently, I’ve set several tables using some of August Table’s newest patterns and colorways, so I’m here today sharing with you some of my favorite looks.


New to the line are table runners and placemats. In addition to tablecloths, these little gems offer a more casual and informal look to your table. 

Here we’ve got the Villa Vaux Petit Gray set with contrasting Villa Vaux napkins with a hint of green.


I absolutely LOVE the hint of green in the napkins, and I brought in a similar green with the vintage glassware, candles and florals.


This look is perfect for fall, but honestly it works any time of the year! 

The foraged florals are all from my garden, and you’d be surprised how a bit of greenery can lift the whole table and draw you in to taking a seat.


Collecting vintage candles has become a fun activity and you can often find them at yard sales and thrift store for a few dollars. Just a touch of color with the candles really ties this look together.


White Japanese anemones in the arrangement are one of my all-time favorite flowers, and they start blooming in early fall, which is so lovely when not much else is flowering in the garden.


Switching out the napkins and a few accessories, transforms these place settings into an elegant Thanksgiving table. 

All we did here was trade in the napkin for the matching Villa Vaux Gray ones, add a terrific turkey salad plate, a new blue gray goblet and use evergreen eucalyptus for the centerpiece.


Here’s my favorite pattern Villa Vaux again, but this time in a tablecloth on this little alfresco corner table in the back yard. 

It’s set up for tea and croissants among my collection of coleus and pretty begonias.


And of course, a pumpkin on the table reminds us of the season we love most!


Setting my dining room table with fall inspiration started with a beautiful Talelayo Sparrow tablecloth from August Table

and then I added beautiful placemats, plates, goblets, napkins and candlesticks from CB Lifestyle.  


To soften the center of the table, I added roses, cosmos, dusty miller and olive branches from my garden. A little bunch of dried grasses helps soften the look.

All that was needed was to add a few autumn details, like pumpkins and these adorable blue and white pumpkin appetizer plates from Maxcera.


This is a brand-new color way of the Talelayo pattern from August Table in brown.


I layered the fan-folded napkin on top of a turkey salad plate, a dinner plate and a wooden charger.


The little wicker napkin rings pick up on the natural textures of the big basket holding the Thanksgiving Poinsettias.

I hope this gives you a few ideas for your very own Thanksgiving and fall décor. Please check back later in the week for my 5 favorites on Friday.
