In the Netherlands a spring festival is still relatively unknown, but our southern neighbors are big fans of it, as are we. This spring we are covering the spring table with a Terracotta tablecloth. The spring festival is a celebration for children between the ages of 6 and 12. It is used as a substitute for the communion. An intimate party, a party with meaning and a moment of reflection.

Pick a colour
Colour really sets the mood. Did you know that customers in a clothing store shop according to colour? That means they first consider the colour and then look at the model. Colour can really determine the ambience, and colour is personal. You can pick one colour theme to style your Christmas table. So, from a Christmas-themed tablecloth to crockery and accessories, you can combine darker and lighter shades of one colour. The French call it ‘ton sur ton’. We see it in fashion and interior design all the time. In Cottona’s new Christmas magazine, table 2 and 4 are examples of ton-sur-ton Christmas table styling.
With the holidays just around the corner, a beautifully set table is a surefire way to create ambience at home. It all begins with a beautiful custom tablecloth. To mark the festive season, we have expanded our damask collection this autumn with two new damask designs: Modern and Floral.
These are times to really show off our cooking and hosting skills. Eating out might have become a habit of ours, but a dinner at home can be great fun as well. It starts with the anticipation; what’s on the menu? Do we cook it ourselves or do we call in a chef? How do we set the table?
It’s springtime again! No change of season makes me happier than when winter turns to spring! For me, 15 degrees, sun and a southerly wind is pure enjoyment. It’s such a great feeling to literally drag winter out of the house. For six months, the wool plaids and dark earthenware settings are replaced by fresh, light colours and materials. This year we’re decking the spring table with striped and checked natural table linen!
You have a large round, oval or rectangular dining table but can’t seem to find a nice large tablecloth anywhere? Does that sound familiar? This hassle was at the heart of what led to the launch of Cottona in 2009. Cottona was born from their own personal needs (and that notion is something that more people will undoubtedly have) and a passion for fabrics and table textiles. Since then, tables are being set all over the world with (large) Cottona tablecloths. In both the consumer and the business markets.
A tablecloth for Christmas is a veritable mood setter. With it, you are setting the scene for a delightful evening. Whether you are looking for a Christmas tablecloth in a standard colour or in a real Christmas colour such as Christmas green or Christmas red… you are sure to find what you are looking for at Cottona.
Styling is made easy with our large selection of table runners, placemats and serviettes.
This will allow you to create a festive air in no time at all. You can opt for a different colour (a white cloth with red table runners is very festive), or instead for colours from the same palette (the colours taupe in combination with basalt from our linen collection work splendidly together).
Have you noticed the stripes trend yet? Striped pants, dress, shirt, cushion, plaid and garden tablecloth already in your collection? Cottona has expanded its assortment of outdoor tablecloths with four beautiful and timeless striped designs from the Basque Country. Just like damask, the Basque stripe is a classic.
As a basis for this cool Easter table setting we use a dark grey linen table runner. We combine this with green or honey yellow napkins. Dark colours are totally trendy in interior design. You can find them on the walls, furniture and table. No cute little vases filled with flowers, just one big blossoming branch in the middle of the table. Glassware from recycled glass and a dark earthenware setting round things off. This is the perfect Easter table for those who love a cool industrial style.

This chic Easter table setting is for all those who can’t wait till Christmas 😉 Allow yourself at Easter time to indulge in a delicious, luxurious meal. The style of the table setting enhances the luxurious feel. A timeless, classic damask tablecloth exudes class. The gold napkins have Easter bunny ears and the gold napkin rings top it all off.
Tip! When Easter’s over you can combine the damask tablecloth – for a summer table setting – with jade green or pink pastel linen napkins, and decorate the table with fresh lemons, herbs or wildflowers.
