Plaid Table Settings for the Fall and Winter Holidays

You can never have enough plaid when it comes to decorating for fall or winter!

As you can see, I have quite a collection of plaids and checks...

Plaids and Checks for fall

But like I said, you can never have enough plaid !  Recently, this runner at Homegoods caught my eye...

Plaid Table Runner
And of course I had to buy it to add to my plaid collection!  A black watch plaid like this one would be pretty for fall as well.

I haven't created a table setting with the runner yet, but I thought it would be fun to look back at some table settings where I have used plaid or checks in the past...

Black and White Checked Tablesetting
I like using black and white checks in the fall.  I bought this tablecloth a few years ago but I found one that looks identical - HERE.   You can see more details about this table setting here - Black and White Fall Table.

Christmas Table with Black and White
And black and white looks great for Christmas too because it's so easy to add color!  You can see more details on this table setting here - Christmas Breakfast Table.

Red and White Fall Table Setting
Red and White Checked placemats work for fall or winter.  I bought these in a Pennsylvania country store years ago and they have held up beautifully in the wash.  I couldn't find any similar ones but  these are similar in color and have that rustic country look.  You can see more details on my table setting here - Fall Table Setting with Apples.

Christmas Table with Red Checks
Small red checks can look festive for Christmas.  I have had these Ralph Lauren napkins for years.  I don't think they are technically Christmas napkins, though.  I was able to find some pretty Ralph Lauren Christmas Napkins - HERE that would work just as well, if not better!  I also found a similar tablecloth you might like - HERE.  I tend to stay smaller with red checks because sometimes they can make the table look too much like an Italian restaurant like this one - HERE.  See more table details here - Christmas in the Country Tablescape.

Checks and Plaid for Christmas - one of my favorite table settings
And I love the checks even more when paired with plaid napkins!  I bought these at Pottery Barn a few years ago but I found a few similar ones - HERE and, HERE.  See more details on the table setting here - Christmas Table with Checks and Plaid.

  11. Shelley, I am mad for plaid, ever since those parochial school uniform days. I have some tartanware plaid that I like to use in holiday decor (tablescape runner, dishes), but I also like plaid for fall in blazing colors of oranges, greens, etc. Nice collection you have, and it caught my eye at One More Time.
