The Perfect Thanksgiving Tablecloth: Our 10 Favorite Thanksgiving Table Linens

Saffron Marigold - Updated: September 13, 2021

Your Thanksgiving tablecloth or table runner doesn’t need a Thanksgiving-themed pattern to feel festive. Reach for an elegant Thanksgiving tablecloth with gorgeous patterns and rich colors instead. Bring in a few fall accents and a centerpiece, and you’ll have a Thanksgiving table that wows your guests. Here are a few of our favorite ways to use our block printed linens and unique tablecloths on the Thanksgiving table.

1. An elegant white & gold Thanksgiving tablecloth

A white and gold tablecloth feels special for a holiday, and it’s a nice departure from a traditional white tablecloth. Our Vanilla Glace collection takes things to another level with its stylish white-on-white pattern and delicate gold piping. Because it’s both beautiful and versatile, you can use this hand printed tablecloth for so many other occasions–it’s a great piece to have on hand for Thanksgiving and beyond.

2. A classic Thanksgiving table runner

Shades of orange, yellow, moss, and plum come together in our best-selling Orange Blossom Collection. If your taste leans towards the traditional–but with a twist–then these orange tablecloths and table runners are for you! The seven-color palette opens up so many possibilities for mixing and matching your fall table decor. In many ways, this is the quintessential fall table runner.

3. A fun floral tablecloth for Thanksgiving

With its classic blue and white palette and sweet rendering of florals, English Gardens remains a customer favorite. While blue and white linens feel fresh in spring and summer, you don’t have to pack them away come fall. After all, if this is the color combination you love, use it year-round! We love how one customer used it to anchor her Thanksgiving tablescape. Blue’s foil is orange, which shows up here as an accent color in the china and pumpkins.

4. Festive Thanksgiving tablecloths

When you want to set a festive table, simply break out the polka dots (and the bubbly!). Our Fete Royale black and red tablecloth is one you can use all year, but it’s especially fun at the holidays. With a patchwork of squares filled in with polka dots and squiggles, Fete Royale carries a sense of charm that’s just right for the holidays. In fact, it can set your tables from Thanksgiving through Christmas all the way into Valentine’s Day.

5. Elegant Thanksgiving tablecloths trimmed in gold

Our Memories of Shalimar collection features spiralized navy and chocolate florals framed in gold against a grassy green ground. It might not be your traditional fall tablecloth, but that doesn’t matter–it’s all in how you style it. It’s truly a stunner, and it’s gorgeous for the holidays. Pair it with plum for a striking, eye-catching Thanksgiving table that feels seasonal and looks refined.

6. Ruby Kilim

If you love a rustic, homespun feel at Thanksgiving and if you also happen to love handmade, artisanal items, then you’ll love draping Ruby Kilim over your Thanksgiving table. Rendered in cream, black, and ruby red, this traditional Persian kilim pattern evokes nostalgia in an unexpected way–a slightly bohemian and welcome change from the ubiquitous buffalo check.

7. A boho tablecloth for a memorable meal

Artistic, warm, colorful, and relaxed–this is what a boho Thanksgiving should be. Set the table with Spice Route to create a gorgeous tablescape for your Thanksgiving meal. Add a fall centerpiece that emulates Mother Nature’s seasonal show, and include a few pieces of handmade pottery (e.g. dishes, serveware, or candlestick holder). Your guests will love the thoughtful, seasonal touches and feel relaxed at your Thanksgiving table.

8. French-inspired elegant tablecloths

The landscape fills with vivid reds and oranges come autumn, but the mossy greens and harvest golds of fall as just as pretty. For a Thanksgiving table setting that feels seasonal and graceful, look to our Gardens of Versailles botanical pattern. Swirling yellow vines with grey leaves anchor a Thanksgiving table beautifully. We love this customer’s Thanksgiving table dressed in Versailles. She added gourds, yellow roses, candles, and charger plates to create this gorgeous fall tablescape.

9. Blue fall table runners

Blue Thanksgiving table runners? Yes, there is such a thing! Here, a deep indigo blue table runner from our Pacific Blue collection finds itself transformed into a Thanksgiving table runner at an al fresco dining setting. Once again, orange proves to be a great accent to blue. A bowl of orange dipped roses, a few oranges and pumpkins, and orange ribbons around the cutlery bring a touch of November to our coastal blue linen. It’s such a naturally pretty Thanksgiving table!

10. A grey & modern tablecloth for Thanksgiving

The ever-chic color combination of grey and white makes a great choice for your Thanksgiving tablecloth or table runner this year. The Art Deco pattern on our 1920 collection brings enough interest to keep the table from falling flat. However, it also creates a wonderful canvas for the rest of your Thanksgiving table decor. Add touches of yellow, orange, and burgundy for a rich autumn tablescape; bring in shades of blush and champagne for a modern, sophisticated look.

Our table linens are available in rectangle or round tablecloths, three sizes of table runners, placemat sets, and cloth napkins in coordinating prints.
