Christmas Table Linens + How to Fold a Napkin

You’ve invited your closest family and friends, gathered your most scrumptious holiday recipes, found a fabulous centerpiece… What else is missing? A beautiful foundation of Christmas table linens, of course! If your dinnerware is simple or a solid color, a patterned tablecloth can perk up your table with festive pizzazz. Solid color holiday table linens can be just as elegant, however; contrast red and green for a joyous tablescape. Many of these patterns are available with coordinating accessories, including table runners, placemats, and napkins. Click on each image to view all available items.

Gold fosters an atmosphere of luxury at your holiday table. The Holly Ribbon Table Linens feature a dazzling holly-and-ribbon pattern; the sheer material can be displayed alone or layered atop your solid color fabric. Scrolling floral designs lend elegance to the gold borders. The Lenox® Holiday Nouveau Table Linens display a beloved design of plaid ribbons and holly. Tonal holly designs dapple the ivory ground for subtle embellishment.

After you’ve chosen your Christmas table linens, it’s time to practice your napkin folding skills! If you need to brush up on the art of napkin folding, here’s a step-by-step guide for the pyramid fold:

1. Place a square napkin on the table like a diamond.

2. Fold it in half upward to make a triangle.

3. Fold the left corner up to meet the top corner.

4. Fold the right corner up to meet the top corner.

5. Turn the napkin over.

6. Fold the napkin in half by bringing the bottom point up to meet the top. This should form a triangle.

7. Fold the napkin along the center seam to form a pyramid.

Festive Holiday Table Linens

Wintertime visitors to your home love to be embraced by reminders of the holiday spirit at every turn, so it’s hardly surprising that everything is decorated, right down to the table top. Holiday table linens are like any other ornament; sure, they convey seasonal cheer, but they’re also testaments to your personal taste. (If a relative remarks, “That is so you,” you know you’ve nailed it.)

If your taste is elegant but simple, you’ll want the Christmas Bows of Gold Table Linens. These accents have a subdued scroll pattern threading through a golden background. Nestled in a bouquet of apples and pine cones, a gold bow unfurls as a centerpiece. These festive table linens are perfect for a straightforward and beautiful look.

The Lenox® Holiday Nouveau Table Linens bring an elaborate touch to the dining table. The red, green, and ivory color scheme is traditional yet unique. Breaking up the ivory background, white clusters of holly wind like filaments of frost on an icy window. Plaid and golden ribbons adorned with green holly leaves overlay these. The Holiday Nouveau Collection by Lenox® also includes matching quilt bedding, table linens, and a tree skirt to create a coordinated look throughout your whole house.

Meanwhile, the whimsical decorator will adore the Santa Placemats. A rotund Santa, vaguely snowman-esque in shape, will peer up at your guests with black button eyes and a cheerful smile. He’ll be right at home beside the Santa Hat Chair Backers—the ultimate in holiday personalization. Not only can these be monogrammed to designate guests’ seats, they’re also hats for your chairs! When even your chairs are a part of the holiday cheer, your taste is undeniably whimsical.
