Antique Linen Tabletop Ideas

We love using vintage linens to create one of a kind tablescapes. The lovely toile wallpaper is sweetly enhanced by a red and white tablescape that features a monogramed sheet used as a tablecloth.

This rustic tablescape is simplistic perfection. An antique piece of linen and hemp is folded for use as a runner.

Linen dishtowels are rolled up for use as generously sized napkins. The chairs are beautifully upholstered in linen and hemp.

Perfect parcels for the table are sweetly scented sachets made from antique linen scraps.

 

 

A classic Christmas setting is created by using traditional red monogrammed towels and fresh greenery.

 

 

How will you decorate your table?

HI Laura! Those linens are gorgeous! I have a cut velvet cranberry colored runner on my table with white linen napkins in napkin rings I've made. I have a wreath in the center of the table with a cream colored soup tureen (without the lid) inside the wreath. I have put some oasis in the soup tureen, some more greens, a large white candle and then I'll put red and white roses and some silver twigs in the greenery too! That's my table setting for this Christmas. The dishes I use are the Lennox Christmas plates.
