We absolutely love to entertain here at Coral & Tusk, and from throwing studio shindigs to large dinner parties, we wanted to share our our favorite ways to celebrate with friends and family. For our fall festivities, setting a beautiful table helps to create an inviting space for good conversation and delicious food.
Choosing the menu and the atmosphere of the party is a perfect place to start because it makes the larger decisions for how to set your table fall into place. For any table setting, we like to first spread out the table runner or table cloth and keep layering until it feels good! Begin with your linens, then decide your dinnerware setting layout depending on what you’re serving. If you’re sharing appetizers and drinks, keep it simple and buffet style with dessert plates, vintage cheese knives, serving spoons and cocktail napkins.Homecoming Table Linens
We love mixing with pattern and color, but simplicity can be just as striking! Place the napkins out and play with the arrangement of those before moving on to the silverware. Next comes dishes, and then special decorative extras or name settings. Although we love to make it to a good flower market, you can also garnish the table with items you have around you. Sprigs of rosemary or pinecones are perfect and easy additions while brass candleholders and objects such as these deer and shimmering moon charms from Cosmic Peace Studio add a stylish and fun touch.
We have two styles of dinner napkins and love to use on their own and mixed for variety. Our dinner napkin size is a 20” x 20” hemmed square folded into a 10 x 10” diamond shape. This is perfect to lay out as is and display the embroidery, or you can add a napkin ring as well. With the geometric styles, easily fold them over again for a slim rectangle as a second option.
There are many different ways to fold our napkins depending on your table style!
We are also huge fans of using tea towels as napkins. They are a generous size, perfect to mix and match with and make a great hostess gift!
Our Plants Table Runner with coordinating Thistle and Poppy dinner napkins is a great year round piece since the botanical embroidery has subtle colors to take you through the seasons. For fall, dress it up with small bundles of tied herbs and formal silverware.
Another favorite for fall, our Feathers Table Runner has a rich and sophisticated palette that layers beautifully with neutral or metallic dinnerware.
We offer coordinating dinner napkins and tea towels in a variety of plumes including Hawk, Owl, Fowl, and Pheasant feather.
Perfect for the gathering of friends and family, our Homecoming Table Runner works wonderfully at Thanksgiving. Woodland animals elk, bear, baby bear, and fox come together to share and celebrate! Wheat and mixed feathers border the edges to decorate with warmth, collective spirit and abundance. There are so many different ways to set the table with Homecoming and bring out the beauty in this pattern.
To make an eclectic tabletop, we emphasized the bright blue of this playful china pattern against our warmly toned embroidery stitches on the Homecoming Table Runner all set on top of a stitched indigo tablecloth.
For a great buffet layout, we went traditional and decorated with brass candle holders, pinecones, a rustic cutting board and forest green garland.
We would love to see what you create with our embroidered textiles and table decor!! Orders for custom lengths, sizes and fabrications must be placed by October 12th to receive in time for Thanksgiving.
