No matter what time of year, we love the chance to get together with friends and family for a festive gathering. When you’re planning a delectable menu, don’t forget the important secret ingredient: a memorable table setting. Lucky for you, we have an incredible range of designs for any occasion—plus they have the added bonus of being reusable and eco-friendly. If you’re struggling to find the “perfect” designs for your themed get-together, we’ve got you covered. You won’t find designs like these at big-box stores, and that’s exactly what will leave your guests talking.

Friendsgiving

A recent (and delicious) holiday tradition in the United States, Friendsgiving is a chance to get together with friends over a potluck dinner in late November before holiday travels begin. Homemade soups, roasts and pies are menu favorites, and so are autumnal designs that feel fresh and unique. Watercolor gingham is the perfect backdrop for seasonal leaves and pumpkins.

Tip: Sew up a chef apron in a coordinating design with our free pattern, and find more holiday table ideas here.

Cookie Exchange

Do your holidays include sugar cookies or peanut butter blossoms? Spritzgebäck or speculoos? Then pull up a chair to a cookie exchange party! This collection celebrates all things sugar, and is a great way to spice up your holiday soirees. We love how this design collection evokes the holidays, while using an unexpected color palette. 

Bonus Project: Make some reversible bowl covers as a hostess gift.

Hanukkah Dinner

Share age-old Hanukkah traditions with the next generation, and decorate your table with designs that will illuminate your space year after year. You can celebrate the festival of lights (and bring kids into the fold) with a rousing game of dreidel—don’t forget the chocolate gelt!

Gift Alert: This no-sew Fleece menorah wall hanging is downright adorable.

Book Club Brunch

Do you enjoy meeting up with friends to swoon over a Mark Darcy soliloquy or debate the epic greatness of Daphne du Maurier’s thriller Rebecca? This design collection is made for swapping tales over a long brunch or tea with your favorite bibliophiles. Earn extra points for pairing your table setting with a themed menu.

Pro Tip: Did you know we did a Murder Mystery Toile Design Challenge? No cliffhangers here!

Game Day Cookout  

From football to futball, cricket to baseball, set a winning themed table for a big game day. Mix and match designs featuring your favorite sport and team colors on table settings for a fun party fit for kids and adults alike. Hint: Think of tablecloths and placemats as oversized drink coasters to protect your table from any beverages that veer off course!

Tip: Cover your cornhole boards with Peel and Stick Woven Wallpaper or make your own beanbags!

Seafood Soiree

Whether you call it a clambake, low country boil, or oyster roast, there’s a jolly good time to be had when good people gather to celebrate a local seafood speciality. We love starting with a tablecloth pattern that evokes the coast and layering in oceanic motifs on placemats and napkins to echo the theme in an appealing way.

Kid’s Birthday Party

Need a “one-derful” theme for your little one? Throwing a “dino-mite” party for your pre-schooler? Step away from the paper products and look toward a tablecloth and napkins that are sprinkled with joy. The best part is that you can mix and match patterns and reuse elements of them for future parties (plus, tablecloths make great play forts!)

Bonus Tutorial: Make the guest of honor a play crown in under an hour!

No matter the celebration, let Spoonflower help make your day extra special!
