  • Since this is first issue we will be taking you through steps in creating a table layout that would be perfect for entertaining guests. The foundation of any table setting is of course laying of table cloth, or maybe nothing at all depending what condition your table is in. Table clothes always give it touch of elegance and feel that you are having a sophisticated dinner. Here are some pointers for picking your table clothes:

  • Make sure the table cloth compliments your dinner set and goes with the colour scheme of the room.

  • If you have patterned dinnerware, choose a plain tablecloth. If you have plain, single-coloured dinnerware, you can choose a patterned tablecloth.

  • Fabric, such as cotton or cotton mix will bring warmth to the table setting, avoid plastic at fancy dinner’s

  • Table cloth should be enough to cover the table and have enough to dangle over the edge halfway.

  • You might also place a plastic pad under your table cloth. This will prevent stains on your table and reduce clanging from dishes and cutlery

  • For dramatic table settings use cloth that covers the tables and hides parts of the floor.

  • To add a personal touch, tie knots on corners of the table cloth, or try sewing ribbon or lace or add tussles to corners, perhaps add some broken jewellery or brooches to corners of table cloths.

  • If you have not yet read our article on Tablemats and table settings you can do so now to further improving your table placements for decor and home decor skills

  7. How does one prevent food spills on a tablecloth? Will a clear plastic look too garish?
