Table Linens

Setting up a new household or updating hostess must-haves is made an easier endeavor with the Pottery Barn Registry tips for linens.


Linens need to be versatile, accommodating various occasions including formal functions, dinner parties, occasional get-togethers and holiday festivities. To make the most of your linen registry, consider the number of tablecloths, table runners, placemats, napkins, napkin rings, place card holders and other necessities that are needed, keeping the style and coordinating designs in mind. Browsing our top registry picks helps to narrow down favorite registry items and correlating pieces. A complete accommodating set with a few extras to spare is recommended. If large parties, buffet-style dinners or family feasts are on the menu, consider our well-thought-out, pre-made boxed sets. Taking into consideration the place setting styles, colors, patterns and finishes can help you when selecting coordinating linens and details such as napkin rings.


Hosting special occasions and everyday affairs generally requires a minimum of two to three tablecloths and table runners, eight to 12 napkins and two to three napkin ring sets, which can be monogrammed for a personal touch. Creating, managing and registering for linens as well as dinnerware, flatware and bedding can be done from the website’s registry page.
