As many of us are considering summer entertaining, one of the easy ways to add flavor to an event is colorful linens. One of my recent discoveries is a wonderful source for cheerful, reasonable and casually stylish linens of all sorts.
From tabletop to decor, Hen House Linens carries a wide array of products made from their pretty prints. Their slogan “gracious living everyday” really captures the essence of their line. I love their bold graphics in mix and match colorways.
It’s a fresh and easy style perfect for summer.
And the line is so well priced that you can afford several different sets. This way even your everyday table can look good with environmentally friendly reusable cloth napkins instead of paper throw away!
Many items such as these charming cocktail napkins or potholders make great hostess or house gifts, although you might just be tempted to keep them for yourself!!
This wedding reception by Celestine’s in Santa Rosa Beach, FL cleverly used the Tapestry Ocean Guest Towel as large dinner napkins. It’s a beachy versatile pattern that I own myself.
The best part is that all of their patterns seem to work together so well.
In addition to tabletop, there are many other items including aprons
guest towels and pillows. Below is the Portico collection in the Dallas showroom.
I love this warm weather idea of using them on rental chairs for a comfortable and pretty pop of color.
The founder of Hen House, Jenny Davids, is a native of North Carolina, who is, in her own way, successfully extending the tradition of true southern hospitality. In this time of busy lives and scattered family activities, Davids wanted to find a simple way of recapturing the spirit of gracious living. And I think she’s made a great start with Hen House – so perfect for this time of year when we are all looking for effortless yet stylish entertaining ideas.

I love these linens. The colours and patterns are just so summery and gorgeous. I especially love the cocktail napkins and placemats – so fresh, bright and colourful. Just what you need for a happy summer’s day of eating, relaxing and enjoying life! Thanks for sharing this great source of inspiration.
Hey Stacey, I visited their site and was really pleased to find some great summer things. I love placemats, table runners, lovely napkins, especially that turquoise group she has. Thanks for the head’s up on this. Happy June!!
Love bold colors and great linens for outdoor (and indoor) entertaining and didn’t know Hen House Home. Will keep an eye for them at market in Atlanta! Thanks for the introduction – you do find little gems to write about!
I love the table setting with the sand dollars on the napkins! Napkins are always difficult for me. It just seems that I never can find any that excite me. I’ll check out this site and see what they have.
Such fun colors and patterns! I will check the website out….perfect for the summer! Take care, Caroline
Can’t wait to check it out! Happy Monday! xx
Love monograms and have Leontine Linens on my bed. No need to enter me in the giveaway. xx
Very true and I love those bold colours and beautiful patterns! Have a fantastic Monday morning, my dear
This post is exactly why I love summer! Yes, the bold fun colors, mixing and not matching patterns. It’s like the 3 month license to be a kid again, but in a grown up, sophisticated way! So fun to play “house” now :) XO, Kelly
The mix-match of the patterns is so fun! The quilted chargers are so different and a great idea. I am always looking for fun pot holders. Good prices too! Thanks for a great source.
And since I have my handy Mangle – No problem with the ironing!
lovely linens and very in style…
What a great find! Thanks for the introduction, I will have to check them out. The colors just look like summer. Perfect for my table, and a for gracious hostess gift.
These colors and patterns are wonderful!! Great source!! Off to look at more!

I have an amazing Giveaway from the Artisans at Novica. You will love it!
Thank you for the introduction, q! Love the beautiful and colorful pieces. Headed over now!
How fun are these?!! Love when colors and patterns are mixed!
These linens are so perfect for warm weather dining. And what a great selection they have. Will check out their website immediately. Thanks for this recommendation. And I have a weakness for linens, and all tabletop decor!
I love all the patterns and colors. I will definetely be checking out their site. I’m always looking for nice linens. I entertain outside at least three to four times a month and outdoor living is a huge part of our life here and these tabletop items are right up my alley. Thanks for the good tip!
I much prefer using cloth napkins. I save my pretties for when we have guests and we use thin dishclothes (thank you Ikea) as our napkins. I think cloth napkins and cute aprons are such fun hostess gifts!
So beautiful Q! I love linens and spent a good part of yesterday evening browsing the web to find new ones to match my latest beachy color scheme – aqua beach glass, so that Tapestry Ocean print is perfect!

Love the pops of color these all bring to summer entertaining! I think I may need to add a few more things to my ever growing collection!
If gracious living had a look, I’d say these linens would be it. Simply lovely! Here’s to the quest of living everyday in a gracious way!
What a great find!!!! This could be expensive….because I love everything you showed! There is always room for a little more in the “gracious living” category. I see it more as a neccessity than a luxury!
Loving those pillows, so summery chic!
Pretty fabrics and colors. I love using the tea towel as a napkin! Great idea.
This couldn’t be any more up my alley, table linens are a serious weakness, and Hen House has *wonderful* goodies. I’m so proud of myself for not yet succumbing to any of the pillows! Thanks for sharing all of the pretty pictures.
Now I want an apron! Love all the patterns and especially the pairings of colors in the stripes.
I love tea towels as napkins or lapkins! Bright + fun – also find something very civilized about a cloth cocktail napkin. Great summery feel. ; )
Looks like this girl might be doing some online shopping today! Love all of the designs.
