A Bold Red Christmas Tablecloth For A Festive Holiday Table!

Saffron Marigold - Updated: November 25, 2019

We know you’re not formal and stuffy, and that you love to throw a good party–this is why a bold, red Christmas tablecloth is the kind you’ll enjoy decorating with this year! Rich, bold, and holiday-ready, the black and red table linens in our Ruby Kilim collection will inspire lively conversation at this year’s holiday celebration.

We know that our customers are far from “one size fits all,” so along with our unique, handcrafted table linens, we’d like to share ideas for creating three distinct looks: Ruby Kilim in Bohemian, Handmade and Global.

Bohemian Ruby Kilim

Christmas Table Linens

If you’d love an energetic, free-spirited holiday celebration, our kilim print linens will bring that bohemian vibe to your holiday table since the Ruby Kilim print allows you to build a layered look that is creative and adventurous.

Festive Elegant Red Table Runner

Ruby Kilim Red Table Runner: Use our runner to show off the beautiful wood on your table or layer it across another natural fiber cloth! Either way, you’ll create a look that says, “It’s time to celebrate!”

Spice Route Dinner Napkins: These deliciously exotic, hand printed napkins will play beautifully with the deep rich red of our runner and add to the concert of interesting pattern at your table!

Fete Royale Dinner Napkins: Boho style loves to celebrate, and our Fete Royale cotton dinner napkins add festive flair to your holiday table setting. The tie in perfectly with ruby the ruby tones in your table runner!

Tropical Garden Dinner Napkins: If you’re having a crowd, consider a mix of table linens and napkins. Each can become a point of interest. These hand blocked napkins, when paired with Ruby Kilim, are everything boho chic!


From exotic window treatments and eclectic tableware to natural centerpieces, your boho-luxe holiday table setting will evoke warmth and beauty.

Ruby Kilim Sheer Cotton Curtain (complementary print): The gorgeous complement to our Ruby Kilim print may be just the element you need in your dining room to tease out the creative, free-spirited look you want. A panel at the window or in a doorway will transform your space into an exotic, warm space that is out of this world. (Or at least out of suburbia!)
Acacia Serving Bowl, Sur la Table: This is a wonderfully rich, attractive piece. It nicely plays the line between tradition and adventure and will perfectly complement whatever tasty treat you serve.

LED Hanging Starburst, Pottery Barn: Hang a dazzling starburst (or a few) above your table for a dreamy boho chic dining space.

Honeycomb Studio Bud Vases, West Elm: Handcrafted porcelain vessels accented with gold-leafing can serve as dramatic stand-alone pieces or simple bud holders in your holiday table decor–the choice is yours!

Handmade Ruby Kilim

We love the beauty of artisan-made crafts–after all, we’re preserving the ancient art of Indian block printing! Hand blocked table linens will get your handmade holiday off to the right start.

Ruby Kilim Round Tablecloth: Use this gorgeously unique red Christmas tablecloth when the family’s gathered round, or use at a side table dedicated to drinks or desserts!  

Indian Summer Dinner Napkin: Pick up on the luscious reds of Ruby Kilim with the bright red flower central to our Indian Summer hand printed cotton dinner napkin.

Holiday time just lends itself to natural, organic, and handmade design. The ideas of working hard to create a wonderful dinner for friends and of celebrating the bounty of the land with loved ones are ideas that speak to the heart.

Antique Brass Charger Plate, Williams-SonomaHand hammered chargers with an antique brass look lend a shimmering vintage vibe to our red Christmas tablecloth and handmade holiday!

Global Ruby Kilim

Christmas Table Linens

Of course, Ruby Kilim is a global print, inspired by Turkish Kilims and hand printed in India. We’d like to help you use these red holiday table linens as a foundation for a celebration that’s rooted in gratitude and family tradition, but touches on tradition and inspiration from around the world!

Rustic Red Holiday Decorative Table Cloths

Ruby Kilim Tablecloth: Our global holiday will begin with a full Ruby Kilim tablecloth, the sheer intensity of which will transport your dining room to something from the pages of Afar!

Ruby Kilim Napkins: We love the look of our Ruby Kilim cotton dinner napkins along with the red Christmas tablecloth. They’re designed with a complementary print in the same palette, and so will add brightness and interest to your festive table.

Vanilla Glace Table Runner: Indulge in vanilla and honey tones at the table while adding global dimension. This table runner will add layers of interest and brightness to your table, and you’ll know you’re setting your table authentically and globally.

Fete Royal Dinner Napkins: Add global dimension to your Ruby Kilim table with our tribal style dinner napkins. These fair-trade red table linens will add to the look of a traveler’s collection at your Thanksgiving table or Christmas holiday.


Global accessories and food are savory, rich, exotic, and fun! Use bright colors that are rooted in earth tones, geometric patterns, and a bit of sparkle. This holiday, let guests know that you’re making a bit of a departure from traditional fare, andintersperse some unusual ethnic offerings along with family favorites.

Round Madras Chargers, Set Of 4

Ruby Kilim Euro Sham (complementary print): Use a large pillow like this to create a far-eastern look in your dining room. Pile a trio in a corner or on an adjacent sofa. You’ll soften your space, add interest, and make for comfy post-dinner seating (or sleeping).

Round Madras Chargers, World Market: The quickest way to change the look of your tableware is with a charger–these Madras charges will add just the right amount of texture to a table set with our red Christmas tablecloths.

Gold Iron Lanterns, Jamali Gardens: Lanterns at the table will create a feeling of warmth, romance, and sparkle.

Tropical Love, The Bouqs Company: A global table needs a centerpiece that’s out of the ordinary, like a floral arrangement fashioned from tropical flowers.  Enjoy putting your own unique twist on traditional red and green by adding a centerpiece like this to your holiday table!

Whatever your design mantra is, we have inspiring ideas and helpful suggestions for you. Use a couple of these ideas, or mix and match with a few of your own, for a really memorable holiday table that reflects your unique, authentic self. Celebrate!

    • Thanks, Miriam. These tablecloths really do wash so well. Swatches are really affordable (and large) if you’d ever like to
      “touch” the fabric … that always seems to be so important to me when I’m considering textiles! 🙂

      Take care,

    • Hi Martine! I agree, Ruby Kilim is one of my favorites (especially for fall). And I’m so glad I discovered your blog… You seem like a very busy woman, yet you’ve made time to write about all sorts of inspiring ideas and decor!

      Take care,

  1. My favorite of all the collections is Ruby Kilim table linens!!! Love the festive colors!

    For centerpiece, I would fill my wrought iron pumpkin holder with different colored gourds and surround with clear jars filled with cranberries as the candle holders.

  2. These colors are gorgeous. They will complement my homemade ginger cranberry sauce that I’ll serve in a rose color depression era glass bowl. They would be beautiful for my newborn son’s welcoming ceremony, too, happening right after Thanksgiving!

  3. Love the jewel toned tablecloth. I just says fall and is so welcoming. I would use my collection of old carved wood bed leg candles to add more texture and character to my Thanksgiving table.

  4. White dishes would be set off beautifully on Ruby Kilim. And a black bowl to hold the cranberry sauce. A bautiful centerpiece would be a glass vase filled with cranberries anchoring some Fall branches with green leaves.

  5. I would love the runner atop my buffet table between my window and the dining table.I have lots of Italian pottery to decorate atop it and to match the napkins on the table.I usually decorate with natural elements from my yard and fruit or gourds.

  6. These are so beautiful.

    Simple white dishes, and some fall fruits on a gold platter. Nothing fancy. The linens do it all.

  7. All your products are wonderful, I hope to add more in my home soon! I would use these for both Thanksgiving and Xmas, the colors are so great! My centerpiece is always made from my children, and usually involve outdoor findings that morning. They included leaves, pinecones, fallen branches, just to name a few. They also make handprint turkeys at everyones place to show where to sit! I love involving the children, it makes for an amazing holiday!

  8. This is such a pretty print! I would use it with a set of china that has been in my husband’s family for years and that we inherited from his parents.

  9. I just moved into a new condo and am still settling in. It’s a small place, but it is my home. Honestly, I will use the Ruby Kilim table linens this Thanksgiving alone and just as they are. They are so colorful and unique on their own to be the only things needed for my table. My food will be the centerpiece and my regular dishes will be the settings. My unique table will be set by having my son, mother, and sister all together in one place. This is something that rarely happens. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  11. Absolutely gorgeous linens!! I have a victorian house & boy, would this pattern rock my Thanksgiving table! The deep, rich colors are warm, inviting & complement the beautiful holiday foods this time of year. I can imagine how beautiful my antique Limoges dinnerware would look, along with my Waterford Crystal. For a more informal look, my vintage Stanglware, or my red Depression glass dinnerware. Along with a gorgeous festive centerpiece of seasonal flowers, gourds & candles.

  12. Love your tablecloth sets, they’re beautiful! You guys are amazing and I appreciate the diversity of what you offer. Great great job!
