Two important, basic entertaining items you should have are white stoneware/dinnerware and white linen table clothes.
I have several white linens; one for each size dining table that I have in my house and garden.
White linen table clothes can dress up any table, whether old or new. It bears a clean, fresh look that can make any setting feel special.
Want to personalize your table setting to an event, holiday, or season?
My favorite thing to do is find a fabric that I love and buy enough to cover the table, as well as several inches to drape on all sides. Most fabrics don't even need to be sewn or hemmed. A sharp pair of scissors will leave a clean cut.
This piece of fabric ~ in essence ~ serves as a table cover on top of the white table cloth.
With the white linen table cloth peeking out from beneath ~ you'll find your setting extra beautiful and charming. This is also an inexpensive way to personalize your space and/or decorate for a gathering or party.
I adore shades of blue and green during the summer months, and found this paisley fabric to use as a table cover on my dining room table.
I simply . . . love it!
Choose a fabric that catches your fancy . . .
and add charm to your table setting!
