Pretty Ways to Use Plaid on Your Holiday Table
If you want to incorporate a little print on your holiday table, a cozy plaid is just the thing. You can mix it with natural, rustic elements like wooden charger plates and wood slice serving rounds; or you can create a more glamorous look, like this beautiful outdoor red plaid tablescape with red flowers on Style My Pretty Living.

Go for a grey plaid and mix in non-traditional colors like plum to get a more modern holiday table setting. Or pick a forest green and navy plaid; for Christmas, you can incorporate holly or pine accents, like a pine garland centerpiece.
Do some pattern mixing on your holiday table with a plaid tablecloth and patterned dinnerware. Plaid linens look great with an elegant Christmas toile place setting or a fun garden print. You can also layer on an additional plaid print. Pictured: Williams Sonoma Classic Tartan Plaid Tablecloth
I like to use red plaid that can easily transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas. If you already have plenty of holiday linens in solid colors, you can mix in a bit of plaid with a tartan place setting. I love these tartan plaid mugs.
If you have trouble finding the right kind of plaid table linens, take a peek in the clothing section. I love to use scarves instead of table runners. They're just the right size and come in so many different prints this time of year.
