Some people still like to use a tablecloth every day. You might like them for convenience sake (keeping the table clean) as much as the way they look, or the slightly more formal feel they bring to mealtimes. For other people, dressing the table is more something they do on special occasions, or at important times of year like Christmas. Day to day, a bare table feels more relaxed, while a tablecloth feels natural for celebrations, when you’re adding more layers of decoration.
If your table proves difficult to dress with a standard cloth, consider using other table linens as design elements. For extra wide tables, use multiple runners in place of a single tablecloth, by placing runners either across the width as “placemats for two” or use two runners along the length of the table under the place settings. If your table is oblong or oval, use a rectangular cloth allowing it to pool on the “corners”.
Newbridge brings back this classic plaid tablecloth favorite for your busy restaurant or home. Lexington Plaid features stripes in varying thicknesses overlapping each other both vertically and horizontally printed with a subtle visual texture. Colors include a subdued pallet of blue, gray, and green on an off white background. Great for use with adults, kids, pets, or even potted plants. Perfect for keeping your table protected from everyday accidents. Like plastic, the easy-care surface can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or sponge. Vinyl top layer adds a protective waterproof layer. Flannel backed to reduce skidding and slipping on most surfaces. Finished with sewn edges. Easy to fold and store when not in use. Great for indoor, outdoor, home, and commercial use alike. Lexington Plaid is available in a large selection of sizes and shapes for all of your entertaining needs. Finish dressing your table with matching placemats, which are also available separately.
A tablecloth is much more than a piece of fabric you put on your dining table. Think about it, we spend several hundred to thousands of dollars on our dining room tables, yet we still cover it up as though it were something we are ashamed of. But surely we aren’t ashamed of the way our dining table looks. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have purchased it in the first place right? The fact that we use tablecloths on something we have invested so much money into (most likely because we loved the way it looks) lets you know that there is a deeper reason for covering it.
