Fall Tablecloth Colors - Fabrics, Trends & Sizes
by Tony Cueto September 22, 2022
The autumnal equinox arrived this year September 22nd. After the heat waves the entire country experienced this summer, we are all happy the cooler season has arrived. Already consumers are purchasing their table linens for the fall. I will discuss colors available, fabrics, sizes and trends.
Top Selling Fall Colors
As sunny days shrink and Mother Nature’s colors transform, we can help you transform your home to reflect the shades of autumn. From everyday meals to a Thanksgiving feast, our fall collection of table linens can create the perfect setting to serve pumpkin pie and apple crumble.
6 Top Selling Fabrics
The Poly Premier (basic polyester) is one of our top selling fall tablecloth fabrics due to the price point and the wide array of 74 colors. In this fabric, great fall colors include pumpkin, burnt orange, goldenrod, terra cotta, brick, ruby red, tan, toast, oyster, ivory, maize, lemon, toast, camel, cooper, espresso, chocolate, sage and purple. While this basic polyester product is an excellent option for many customers, if you desire a more wrinkle-resistant fabric, consider one of the following fabrics:
The Majestic Dupioni collection consists of high quality, reversible tablecloths available at a good price point in 37 colors. Autumn colors include tan, camel, cafe cornsilk, ivory, lemon, goldenrod, acid green, moss, plum, aubergine, chocolate, espresso, orange and burnt orange.
Velvet linens are stunning and stylish. The fabric has become very popular recently. Every year, as fall and winter approach, velvet tablecloth sales soar and with good reason: The plush fabric creates a sense of warmth and welcoming. This collection has the perfect spice, cashmere, taupe, tan, dove, spruce, sunshine, golden, mink and brown fall colors.
Havana Linen Collection
The Havana Linen Collection is of excellent quality, richly textured, rustically appealing and practically wrinkle-free. 26 Colors available including ivory, camel, natural, chocolate and purple. The camel and natural Havana are the top sellers for Thanksgiving tablecloths.
Panama Faux Linen
The Panama Faux Linen is top of the line. It is very similar to the Havana linen but even heavier weight and also wrinkle-free. Fall colors are spice, beige, buttercup, mustard, ivory, taupe, brown and plum. These colors sell out every year so order early!
If wishing a patten, the Miranda Damask offers a beautiful swirling leaf two-tone pattern in champagne, Dijon, pewter and English rose. The Miranda Damask Bordeaux is also one of the top selling Christmas tablecloths.
It’s fall, y’all, and what's more appropriate than a burlap tablecloth, especially for Thanksgiving? Rustic and organic bring home the southern charm. Add to your tabletop corn, pumpkins, squash, red and green apples, purple plums and yellow pears to represent the bounty of the harvest and you have the recipe for a beautiful rustic Thanksgiving tablescape. Jute burlap is available in both natural and cream white. The fringe option that we offer (see smaller picture) adds an even more beautiful and rustic appeal.
What is a proper tablecloth drop?
That is completely up to you. It can be anywhere from 6" to 12". A drop less than 6" will look too short. I find 8" to 10" to be an ideal tablecloth length, long enough to look beautiful, not so long that the fabric is on your lap.
TIP - Sit at the table and measure from the top of the table to just above your lap for the perfect drop.

The great news is that regardless of your perfect tablecloth size, we make all size table linens including any custom tablecloth size. If you do not see your size listed, use A.C.T.S. (Any Custom Tablecloth Size) to price and purchase your perfect size.
Fall for dinner napkins
You can select the matching napkin color to your linen or think outside the box. For my fall table décor, when I have guests, I use a different color napkin for each guest. On our website Premier Table Linens we only offer the napkins in a set of 6 or 12 of the same color. However, we have an Etsy shop and in our shop, we have a mix and match napkin listing where you can mix in sets of 2, 3 or 4 in any colors.
Wishing you autumn skies, fabulous fall tablecloths and pumpkin pies!
