Tabletops Inspired by Beautiful Textiles

With the holiday season upon us, I have had entertaining on my mind lately. I recently hosted a small gathering for friends in celebration of my birthday and based the “theme” on my favorite colors, pink and orange along with the ikat invitation I chose. The fact that I based the party’s d├ęcor on an ikat pattern got me thinking about the beautiful table tops and party themes I have seen recently that have been inspired by chic and noteworthy textiles. I think these fabrics and patterns can set the perfect backdrop for a party and they are something that you can treasure for years.

{You can never go wrong with something classic like this black and white striped tablecloth. It can be modern or class and is a bit graphic. It works with any color palette. The possibilities for flowers, stemware, dinnerware, etc. are endless against this ideal backdrop.}

{This table setting is casual and cheery, but feels rather special. I love how unified the color palette is. The casual, floral damask design on the tablecloth is informal and inviting—perfect for a gathering with family and close friends.}

Which of these fabulous table settings is your favorite? Have you based a tabletop or party theme around a favorite textile?

those pink chairs are amazing. Btw, are there going to be any more issues of High Gloss coming out? Miss it so much.

Any idea where those amazing blue wine glasses are from in the Eddie Rose table setting? I absolutely love them!!

I never thought that mixing so may patterns in one table could ever look good, but in fact, it does!

What a beautiful, inspiring post! The last one is such a unique twist on holiday table settings. The first one is the Domino cover to a T!! These are all so pretty that you almost wouldn't want to eat at them (almost).

VERY difficult to pick a favorite....so I won't! I love them all, and have added them to my table top inspiration file! Thanks Paloma!

I love those Eddie Ross images. And the black and white stripe fabric is always so classic and graphic -- I just posted about a bridal shower I hosted this weekend and used a similar fabric to make runners for the tables!

I'd have to go with the orange/pink toile. They are all spectacular. However, I also love a simple linen as the backdrop for something revved up or paired down. Thanks!

Thank you for sharing your table settings with us. They look very fancy and elegant. I recently put in some replacement table tops in my home office and love the way they look. They add an extra dimension to the room.
