Christmas table runners and table cloths

Christmas table cloths and table runners to create the right atmosphere

Christmas dinners without the right table linens are never the same thing. Christmas table cloths and runners create the right atmosphere for the occasion and what is best about table linens is that with a change of a cloth you can create the right atmosphere in a matter of minutes. The right table cloth or runner could make your table a visual treat and create the right setting for the occasion. Once you have your runner or table linen ready you can plan the rest of your table settings and table ware accordingly by coordinating the colours of the dinner ware, table napkins, place mats, etc and what better time to bring out classy table cloth or table runners than at Christmas. So go on right ahead and make that Christmas dinner special with the right table linen.

Dress up your table at Christmas with Christmas Table runners

Table runners that are dressy or elaborate can be combined with simple,self-designed or gold edged table cloths. The magic of a table runner is that, it can turn a simple, boring looking table into a beautiful festive looking table in seconds. Your Christmas Table runners not only bring in the atmosphere, but they do a fine job of protecting your expensive table cloths and furniture from getting stained and spoiled.Getting a themed table runner or table cloth can be the best thing that you can do to ring in the season of joy.

Your table runner or table cloth can beautifully tie up the decor and the colours in the room making the place come together, looking elegant and classy. The best part about using table cloths is that with a little cleaning or probably a trip into the washing machine, it is good for use the next season. If you have used a runner for a few seasons and need a change, you need not worry about throwing it away, you can highlight it with some embroidery or fabric paint or gold edging and have it framed to make a wonderful Christmas decoration. Cut parts of it to make a wall hanging with or without a frame by just cutting it and edging it with gold edging and glue, some tassels will add glamor to you designing. Just let your imagination run wild.

The elegant Christmas table cloth

Here is a wide range of table linens from that ring in the Christmas season. You could choose from a wide range of designs of embroidered, cut work, heirloom table cloths with overlay work and gold edging can make your dinners impressive. There are a wide range of shapes and designs to choose from to suit the shape of your table. A theme like poinsettias, candles, reindeer and snow drops can run through all the decorations in home during the Christmas season to make it look elegantly unique.

Choosing your Christmas linen

While choosing your Christmas table linen, you could specifically choose a Christmas motif or design and make your Christmas dinner grand or you could choose just the right Christmas / festive colours so that they can be used for thanksgiving or Christmas. If you are not Christmas person get a holiday dinner table cloth or table runner in golds, reds and greens. When you have attractive table linen, you could even use your simple everyday crockery and get away with it. When you buy table linen make sure that you buy something that is of excellent material that can be washed and stored away for a few seasons.

Christmas Table linen that stays with you through the years

Though a roll of Christmas wrapping paper could serve as a table runner, which you can use and forget about storing it for the next season, it could never bring you the old world charm of having proper Christmas linen. Having a matching mantle runner that highlights your table runner would be another classy addition to your dinner settings. No party is perfect without a proper setting and your Christmas table cloths and table runners will bring you the much needed wow factor to your dinner parties.

Nicely done. I have one that I bought on my honeymoon in Greece 13 years ago. I had no idea what my home decor would be at the time but I fell in love with it and I knew that it would be something that I could take out a treasure each Christmas season.

Really nice ideas and examples! Special runners or tablecloths can become family heirlooms. The memories tied to them can be powerful links to who our families are, as well as fodder for family stories when children grow up! How much more could we ask from a fabric work of art? :)

Rtalloni , yeah I agree with you, what more can fabric art work do, than to serve you and your generations, Christmas table runners and table cloths can indeed make the wonderful Christmas gifts.

Thank you for the comment I appreciate it.
