Oval Table Linens

Oval table linens fit the shape of your table with special tablecloths and runners.

There are some excellent quality and nice looking oval table linens around and these are available in a large range of colors and fabrics from cotton, or polyester to pure linen. The variety is large but you will probably want a selection of oval table linens to cover the table for all ocassions. Perhaps a silk cloth, or even a linen one for special special events like weddings, celebratory dinners and things like that, but something simpler and less likely to get stained for everyday use.

Oval table linens are not so easy to find. You might see one or two ideas but it is difficult to find somewhere with a wide choice and obviously, if you have an oval shaped table table you will want to show it off at its best. Gracious Style on the Internet has a very large selection of oval table linens, ranging from a few dollars up to hundreds, depending on what you are looking for.

The ultimate in style and grace and the perfect oval table linen set for those extra special dinners is the Chrysanthemum range, which is one hundred percent Irish linen in pure white. This can be washed and dried in the machine, so there is no problem about caring for the linen. You need to make sure you get the right size cloth, though. A 128 x 54 inch oval table with 10 to 12 place settings needs a cloth measuring  72 x 144 inches. This will cost you $440 but it will give a real heirloom piece that you can bring out time and time again over the years.

A smaller sized set of oval table linens, including an oval tablecloth measuring 70 by 90 inches to fit a 54 by 74 inch table (seats 6) in the same Chrysanthemum Irish linen fabric, will cost you $275. Add to that a set of matching Irish linen place mats at $132 and a set of six napkins at $144 for a fabulous set of oval table linens to use with pride.

If you do not want to spend quite so much money but still want you table to look fantastic there are other choices. The Festival range of oval table linens comes in plain colours like black, butter, cinnabar, kiwi, raspberry and some others. They are pure linen and finished off by hand with a drawn thread edge. Matching napkins, cocktail napkins and placemats are available. The price of this oval table linen set is very much less than the previous one and an oval cloth measuring 66 inches long costs under $100. Add matching, or contrasting napkins and placemats for six people for an extra $80.

Of course, there are other ranges of oval tablecloths and linens and searching the internet will find them. Don’t be fooled into thinking that the couple of choices in your local department store are all that is available. You can find oval table linens in just about any size, or color you can imagine.
