Vintage Christmas Tablecloth: Poinsettia

Christmas is a major holiday around the world, and therefore families have been making Christmas tablecloths for generations. Gathering the family around the Christmas dinner table traditionally is one of the most important times of the year.

Vintage and antique Christmas tablecloths were made from many materials, and textiles available in different parts of the world, using popular Christmas symbols.

One of the most popular is the poinsettia, which has been associated with Christmas since 16th century (Mexico). Vintage and antique tablecloths were embroidered, hand painted, and appliqued with poinsettias in the design. Tables have been many different sizes over the years, and so have tablecloths. Vintage tablecloths may be round, oval, square, or rectangular, so search carefully for the size and shape of vintage tablecloth you need.

Vintage and Antique Lace Christmas Tablecloths

Delicate lace Christmas tablecloths originated in Europe and were brought to the United States by immigrants and passed down from family member to family member. Vintage and antique lace Christmas tablecloths are handmade, and uniquely beautiful and delicate. They may be made of lace throughout the entire Christmas tablecloth or just around the outside edge.

Handmade lace is very time consuming to make, and usually was done by a team of women in a family or town. Expect vintage or antique lace tablecloths to be more costly than many other styles if they are in excellent condition.

Fringed Vintage Christmas Tablecloth

Fringe is always a fun addition to a tablecloth.  Children love to feel the fringe, and adults like the way fringe looks.  Vintage tablecloths with fringe that were made for Christmas are more rare than many other styles because they were only made in a few historic eras, but you can find them.  Christmas tablecloths are more likely to be fringed if they are for a side table or small decorative table, and not one that family will eat on.
