For an effortless, sophisticated look, reach for white table linens: they’re the basis of many elegant holiday table setting ideas! We’ve styled our Ivy Lace table linens three different ways to show you just how easy it can be to create an elegant holiday table setting.
Sometimes, all it takes to unleash your creativity is a fresh, blank canvas. Our Ivy Lace table linens are just that. White vines on an ivory backdrop offer limitless decorating possibilities. Use them to set a winter wonderland sort of table or to serve as the backdrop to colorful fall table décor at your Thanksgiving dinner. This year, try one of these three unique looks:
Natural Ivy Lace
White and ivory are colors that make a frequent appearance in natural decor, and they can turn your home into an earthy escape when combined with warm natural and botanical motifs. Use pieces that have character in this first of our three elegant holiday table setting ideas.
Vanilla Glacé Dinner Napkins: Dreamy and decadent, these napkins will add just the right amount of gilded glamour to your nature-inspired white Thanksgiving table. Napkin rings in bronze or with a gilt finish will really set them off.
Ivy Lace Tablecloth: Ivy Lace is so much more than just another white lace tablecloth–handmade and artist-designed, it will enhance and highlight everything in the room! All Saffron Marigold tablecloths are 100% cotton, (no polyester here!) and made with the highest quality materials and practices. This kind of quality underscores your Thanksgiving table without calling undue attention to itself.
Le Chateau Medallions Dinner Napkins: Glorious holiday napkins will bring life and joy to your table. Guests will sense the celebration in the air, and you’ll celebrate when you see how beautifully these 100% cotton napkins wash! 🙂
Starry Nights Dinner Napkins: Is there anything more compellingly gorgeous than a clear, star-filled night? Bring a little of the sparkle of creation to your table with deep indigo and white napkins atop crisp Ivy Lace.
Done well, decorating with neutrals creates a space that is soothing, sophisticated, and warm. The trick to achieving an elegant holiday table setting lies in mixing varying tones of white (think taupe, cream, and grey). Keep accessories warm, and introduce textures like wood, slate, and stone for a nature-inspired palette.
Consider these soft beautiful curtains for the windows. Like a spider’s web, let the delicate, gossamer pattern weave a web of magic and enchantment in your space.
Crate and Barrel
The creamy earthenware is set apart by the organic edge: simple, yet distinctive, and perfect for your holiday table decor.
Natural and simple–your holiday table will shine when you weave these principles into your centerpiece. This wonderful collection of white birch candles are altogether eye-catching and understated.
Pinecones speak to the season, and they lend a beautiful, nearly-regal look to your naturally elegant holiday table!
Handmade Ivy lace
Handmade decor pays tribute to craftsmen and artisans who create beautiful things using age-old techniques and practices. It rejects factory-produced decorative accents and instead embraces natural beauty and traditional craftsmanship. What better way to start decorating in this theme and create an elegant holiday table setting than with our beautiful handmade Ivy Lace tablecloth created by skilled artisans?

Dance O Peacock Dinner Napkins: Handmade and festive, our blue-on-white napkins sit strikingly against Ivy Lace.

Sometimes the addition of a single handmade object can change the entire feel of a room. Handmade accessories imprinted with the stories of their makers add whimsy and character to a room. Look for accessories that have interesting shapes and that are to scale with the rest of the display.
Valances offer a simple, accessible way to dress up windows in a color that easily coordinates with a wide range of elegant holiday table setting ideas–you can keep this particular valance up all season long!
Layer earthy elements to achieve a warm kind of minimalism.
Even in thoroughly modern spaces, a touch of nature can introduce a certain softness and balance to sleek surfaces and angular corners.

Global Ivy Lace
Global decor blends a mix of international cultures into one cohesive, eclectic home. Allow these treasures to mingle–it is much more interesting to mix them up rather than group all goods from one country on one shelf. Roll with the punches here, using every Saffron Marigold napkin you have.
Ivy Lace Dinner Napkins: Fabric dinner napkins always make a meal special, but make your holiday meal a fine dining experience with these lovely, all-white creamy napkins.
Sultan’s Palace Dinner Napkins: Amp up the global feel with Sultan’s Palace napkins in delicious shades of fuchsia, turquoise and ocher. The rich jewel tones against a creamy background will coordinate beautifully with Ivy Lace.
Spice Route Dinner Napkins: Another one of our Eastern-inspired favorites, Spice Route napkins will bring all the color and allure of a bustling Moroccan bazaar to an otherwise white Thanksgiving table.
Midnight Lotus Dinner Napkins: Echoing the scrolling pattern of Ivy Lace, these cheery blue and white napkins from the Midnight Lotus collection are a must.
For accessories, look for pieces with great color, interesting texture, and a handmade look. Remember not to overdo it! A few pieces here and there will set the theme. Moroccan ceramics, Indonesian textiles, African masks, Indian textiles, all against a neutral backdrop–these are all fabulous ideas to bring some global flair to a white Thanksgiving table.
Inject a dose of vanilla and pink by tossing a few India Rose euro shams around. Make your guests feel perfectly at home, and encourage them to take their shoes off and relax barefoot on these pillows.
Mix and match these colorful, hand printed bowls with wild abandon for a brightly global look at your festive table.
Surround a lantern like this with pinecones, colorful leaves, and tiny acorns for a simple Thanksgiving centerpiece that has an understated, exotic vibe.
