Tartan Plaid ~ Part Two

A beautifully set table, such as this one set by Ralph Lauren, takes time and effort, but will allow your guests to feel special. Searching for ideas that serve as a template will make this task easier.

The furnishings and the accessories in your home should create an environment that is enjoyable for you. When you feel comfortable, the task of being host or hostess is joyful.

Shown here are some ideas using the tartan plaid for your home, tabletop, and comfort. Add love and hospitality, and your house becomes a home.


A table must begin with beautiful linens. These nutcracker napkins, from Williams-Sonoma, go beautifully with the placemats and linens that follow.

Williams-Sonoma Home has a large collection of linens. Shown here are their tartan linens.

This is the end of my tartan posts. I hope that you have enjoyed these posts as much as I have enjoyed creating them. As with any decorating endeavor you must have something to work with, and tartans certainly provide this.

Within the next week I will be posting some photographs that were clicked especially for you.

See you Monday, and as always this time of year, Merry Christmas.
