Where to Get a New Tablecloth for Thanksgiving

This holiday season, get something special to soak up the splattered gravy.

If you, like I, have been pulling out the same beloved but embarassingly stained tablecloth for every special occassion for the past decade or so, it’s time to make a change.

There is still a week before Thanksgiving—plenty of time to get a new one on which to promptly spill some cranberry sauce or greasy gravy.

Lincoln Park’s Tabula Tua, always a great stop for tabletop accessories, just got a shipment of fabulous 100 percent-linen tartan tablecloths by Libeco Home. One of these will allow you to celebrate Thanksgiving in high British style, which might sound odd, but will be very on-trend. Starting at $295.

In Oak Park, at Careful Peach, Le Jacquard Francais’s 2013 collection of linens are 20 percent off, so if you don’t mind being so-last-season, now is your moment to invest in some beautiful pieces made in France. Starting at $72.50.

More modern-minded, are you? The local company Unison Home has a great selection of bold-patterned cotton sateen table linens and, as long as we are keeping tabs, they are made in the U.S. Starting at $122.

If you just want to keep things simple, and like the look of a more heavyweight linen, the local company Sarah Drake Design carries a thick Belgian-linen tablecloth that comes in a range of rich, attractive colors (she also carries the more traditional linen). Starting at $240.
