Some styles of Mexican table linens include pastoral and picturesque linens that feature flowers and other arboreal elements. Other Mexican table linens contain one large picture that is framed between borders and other repeating systems that highlight the scene within. Some Mexican table linens use white as a primary color and contain smaller and subtle decorative elements, while other patterns and designs use vibrant colors, such as yellow, red and orange, to help their settings stand out.
Most tables are available in standard shapes and sizes, with the most common shapes being ovaloid, rectangular, square and circular. Measure the table, and choose a side that allows the tablecloth to drape gently over the edges, or purchase a larger tablecloth to create a more traditional appearance and drape.
Choose a setting based on the overall area's theme. A soothing off-white and cool-toned tablecloth is always in style because it is a versatile choice for all types of environments. Brighter colors are recommended for party areas or festive surroundings, such as for areas that frequently showcase colors such as red, orange and green. More complicated patterns may distract attention away from the meal and setting, so avoid too many details unless there is a central theme in mind.
