This post is sponsored by Occitan Imports. All opinions are my own. You know I love things from France, and you probably do too. I want to share some new French tablecloths and napkins I got from Occitan Imports just in time for the holidays.
First I love, love, love this turquoise colored French tablecoth, CLICK HERE. This is the tablecloth we used for our Thanksgiving meal. It doesn’t matter that the colors are not traditional Thanksgiving (fall) colors. I prefer these cool colors.
These colors work year-round. So what’s special about this tablecloth?
Firstly it’s made in France. Secondly, the pattern is woven not printed on the fabric. It’s all cotton and it’s got a Teflon coating. We had a little spill when on Thanksgiving, and yes it was my fault (no surprise there.) Because of the coating, I was able to get the liquid picked up before it was absorbed, and avoided a serious stain.
We’ll be using this tablecloth in the spring and summer also. I love the colors. French tablecloths come in a variety of colors.
The napkins match the tablecloth and are a generous size. You can find all of their jacquard napkins HERE.
I plan to use the napkins for my Christmas table also.

I also found this lovely tablecloth for the farm. It has an olive pattern and can be found HERE. It’s printed cotton with a twist. It has a non-toxic acrylic coating on top of the fabric. It’s not plastic-y feeling like a vinyl tablecloth, but acts like a vinyl tablecloth in that it won’t stain. It’s much softer than vinyl and looks more like a regular cotton tablecloth. I chose this option for the practical option for the farm for every day use. So far, I like it.
The tablecloth comes in a coated and uncoated option. The napkins are not coated. You can find the napkins HERE. I have a large 60 inch table, so I was thrilled this tablecloth was large enough. It comes in a 71 inch diameter size.
I much prefer using a round tablecloth on a round table. I’ve used a square tablecloth before, and I think the round ones look better on this table.
Occitane Imports also carries lovely table runners, CLICK HERE.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful tablecloths. I have been buying them and using these gorgeous cloths for years.
I was traveling to France for many years and I found these and always returned home with one.

“Love” the turquoise table cloth so much that I went to the website and ordered one! Thank you for sharing this beautiful photo of your table! (…maybe I now need new china to go with???)!
That’s wonderful Kathleen! You’ll love it! Ha, that’s funny.

These are gorgeous, and I’m so tempted. Question: Are they easy to care for? I love to be able to wash them and dry them. I don’t mind a bit of ironing, but get frustrated when laborious ironing is required.
Thanks–I’m tempted by the turquoise one!

This is months late but I just saw your post. I washed my French tablecloth (similar to the turquoise one but the one I am speaking of here is taupe) on the gentle cycle of my washer, and dried it on low, also gentle cycle. I removed it promptly and put it right back on the table. It came out just fine. I did not need to iron it. Although, if you want a perfectly crisp effect you can touch it up with the iron. Hope this helps!

I always enjoy looking back at the Archives. So many great ideas and the color palette never goes out of style. Perhaps it is my favorite part of the blog. Guess I’m a yesterday girl.
