Table linens include table clothes, napkins, runners and placemats. Mixed together properly, table linens can pull together the entire look of your holiday table. When choosing these items, it is important to size them properly to your table. Measure your table top and be sure you find a table cloth that is bigger than your table. I like quite a bit of overhang on a tablecloth, be sure the overhang is even on all sides of your table. If you use a runner, be sure it is long enough for your table, these should overhang as well. Mix patterns and fabrics together but be sure to keep your china as the focal point. Use unexpected fabrics for your table, beautiful wool blanket, a scarf, some crisp casual dish towels, if the colors coordinate,these items can make a beautiful unique choice for table covers, placemats, or napkins.
Merry Christmas and Happy Decorating!
