Labor Day’s Favorite Table Cloth; Gingham!

The first Monday of September is fast approaching, meaning that Labor Day is almost here. For many,  it’s the last weekend before school. For others, it’s the endpoint of summer fashion and for some – it’s the biggest discounts of the year. But for most of us, Labor Day is  way for us to relax and give thanks to our workers. It’s also the best time for us to use our gingham linens.

Why Gingham?

Though many Americans believe that its history was based solely in the United States, in fact, gingham was exported from India to the USA in the mid-19th century. When Americans learnt to manufacture it locally, inexpensive and practical gingham became the go-to fabric of workers and farmers. As a result, it considerably boosted the US economy and acquired a patriotic spirit.

 Secondly, as any breathable, light-white textile, gingham has always been worn in summer. Because Memorial, Independence, and Labor Day are celebrated when it’s warm, it’s natural to incorporate gingham into these holidays. On top of that, since red-and-white and blue-and-white color schemes are traditional for this iconic print, it’s no wonder why gingham is easily worked into patriotic celebrations.

How to use Gingham in other Holidays

Due to its simplistic allure, gingham, also known as checkered,  is the most common print for a quick gathering such as pizza parties and BBQ events. Combine it with wood dishes and burlap for a perfectly traditional soiree.

Gingham & Home Décor

When used in moderation, gingham can spruce up any house, making it far from mediocre. For example, gingham walls or curtains will make your room larger (the trick is in using bigger checks for a bigger room and smaller checks – to make a smaller room appear bigger). When it comes to furniture, it is recommended to use this print on either your sofa, chair, arm chair, but not on all three – gingham goes better with solid colors. To establish consistency, coordinate gingham elements with non-gingham ones.
