Rustic Table Linens Make for Inviting Dinners

Saffron Marigold - Updated: November 21, 2019

Come get cozy this holiday season with a rustic Thanksgiving table setting using our Pacific Blue table linens! This unique print works beautifully as a Thanksgiving tablecloth since the rich indigo color remains the perfect foil for the russets, ochres, and reds of harvest.

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 created around Pacific Blue: Bohemian Pacific Blue, Global Pacific Blue, and Natural Pacific Blue. Celebrate!

Bohemian Pacific Blue

Rustic Thanksgiving Table Linens

If you’re a free-spirited hostess who loves vintage style, ethnic pieces, bold pattern, and rich color, Pacific Blue will add just the right vibe to your table. Use it as a ground for bright plating and accessories, or tie into the creamy cotton and use natural fibers and vintage wood pieces on top for a more rustic Thanksgiving vibe.

Pacific Blue Round Tablecloth: Round tables seem to create a special warmth, and topping that table with a unique, hand made blue tablecloth will set just the festive scene that you imagine for your family and friends. No run of the mill, polyester tablecloth will do for you! Instead, choose our heirloom quality, artisan made indigo cotton for your family celebrations.

Memories of Shalimar Dinner Napkins: These rich, muted floral napkins soften Pacific Blue. The tiny bit of gold adds instant sparkle to your Thanksgiving table decor.

Ruby Kilim Dinner Napkins: Create a layered look with cream and red cloth napkins– the colors are perfect for a fall table setting or a rustic Thanksgiving!

Spice Route Dinner Napkins: Because our bohemian spirits love pattern, we’ll layer it on with a tribal chevron print. Our artisan made Spice Route napkins are a bright contrast to Pacific Blue, and will introduce a new level of exotic to your dinner.


From eclectic tableware to natural centerpieces, a few of these Thanksgiving table ideas will ensure that your boho chic style comes across as warm, welcoming, and wonderful.

Global Pacific Blue

Rustic Thanksgiving Table Linens

If you love to travel–or even just to dream of far off places–then you’ll understand the vision behind Pacific Blue. Imagined on the California coast, this print surveys the beautiful Pacific as it rises and falls all the way to the Far East. You’ll be reminded of rustic Japanese forms and enjoy the metaphor of uncharted waters as you decorate your well-loved, rustic Thanksgiving table around this hand printed beauty.

We all enjoy the layers of influence in food, art and ideas born of our multi-cultural country. Why not take that to the next level and really play up a global theme at your holiday dinner? Incorporate the traditions of the melting pot and find that you’re creating a new tradition that you and your family will cherish.

Natural Pacific Blue

Rustic Table Linens

Pacific Blue is inspired by natural beauty, so it only follows that we’d be able to create a wonderful theme of nature-inspired pieces and organic materials. If you’re more likely to be found outside staring at the sea or climbing a mountain, then these ideas are for you.


Pacific Blue Table Runner: Pacific Blue will add a strip of rich natural color to your table, and is the perfect way to show off beautiful wood grain beneath–a great way to have a bit of a rustic Thanksgiving.  Alternately, use this table runner over a natural linen tablecloth for a soothing, soft look this season.

Dance O Peacock Dinner Napkins: Peacock feathers nod to the wild beauty of nature and these hand blocked napkins capture that colorful display.

Pacific Blue Dinner Napkins: For an authentically global look in your home, use our nature inspired Pacific Blue dinner napkins. The palette connects perfectly to our runner, and the theme will have adventure in the air.

Royal Mansour Dinner Napkins: If you like soothing, neutral accessories, choose crisp white cotton dinner napkins for an easy Thanksgiving table setting.


Accessorizing with organic elements, nature inspired design, and harvest bounty makes for a rich table! Use colors that are rooted in earth tones, undulating patterns, and bits collected from the outdoors. Along with your natural decor, consider local farm raised fare and delicious all-natural ingredient baked goods!
