Tabletop - Holiday Linens

Holidays call for a beautiful table…and linens are part of the set up. 

Over the years, I've collected various linens, but every now and then you need to freshen things up. When I saw this photo above, I knew that I had to have these Parentesi placemats by La Gallina Matta of Italy. You see, I already own the Bernadaud Grenadiers china in the photo. 

I got even more excited when I learned that they are made of 100% linen, hand cut and then coated with a special formula that makes them resistant to spills. Childproof!!! Or, adult-proof depending on the guests.

You can monogram them, which I may do, but I love them just plain. They are available here in an array of colors! Priced at $25/placemat.
Now, that the table is set, it's time for cocktail hour. Whether you like eggnog, hot apple cider or a more potent toddy, they all taste better with a linen cocktail napkin. I've just ordered these Dancing Santas for a few gifts…and I might have to keep a set for me! Available here for $30/set of 4.
Let's get the parties started!!!

I have a set of their place mats and love them! The scalloping is such a beautiful detail and is such a great way to dress up any table.

So ready to party and it looks like those Santas have already started. We're not familiar with those placemats and think they're fabulous. We'll be adding them to our gift list for sure.

Hope you're staying warm on this chilly day!

Elizabeth, you are always one step ahead! I just found these placemats this week and have a post all ready to go.. I work ahead - especially during the holidays - and I have found that you and I are inspired by many of the same things!
Hoping you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and don't be surprised when you see La Gallina Matta post come through!
