Linens set the stage for your meal. By mixing and matching your linens to create different looks, you can “dress” your table to fit any mood or season.
Have fun experimenting with different colors and combinations of table linens. Don’t be afraid to mix patterned dinnerware with a patterned, floral or striped linens. As long as the colors complement each other, your table will look fabulous. Find your favorite color in a dinnerware pattern and choose linens to match. Your entire table will come alive with a whole new personality.
For inspiration, check out my favorite linens below. You’ll see how the choice of linens completely transforms the look of some of our most popular Villeroy & Boch dinnerware patterns.
Nobody enjoys washing and ironing linens, but I don’t let this discourage me from dressing my table with linens even for casual meals. Using cloth napkins instead of disposable paper napkins “greens” as well as beautifies your table.
When I was growing up, the children in my family all had personalized napkin rings, and I’ve carried this time-saving tradition into my own home. Personalized napkin rings save me from having to wash my cloth napkins after every meal since it’s easy to find your own napkin and to reuse it for your next meal. What a perfect way to enjoy and use your favorite linens everyday without increasing housework!
