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.
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”.
They can turn an everyday meal into a memorable affair or can make a special occasion dinner party into a truly elegant affair. They are not just decorative -- tablecloths will protect your table from spills and scratches, while fabric napkins will protect your clothing from a dropped morsel or splash of red wine.
