3. Table Linens
 From tablecloths to placemats and runners to napkins, navigating the world of linens can be pretty confusing so here are some pointers…
  • Most tablecloths are made of linen or cotton, but other varieties can be found.
  • Terms like cambric or damask may sound fancy, but they refer to the weave and finish of cloth. So, decide what look you are hoping to achieve and don’t get overwhelmed.
  • Before purchasing linens, measure your kitchen table, including the height from the floor. Remember, linens should not hang too far from any side of the table.
  • Napkins vary in size from a petite 6 sq.in. to a larger 24 sq.in. So, decide what will suit your needs best – if in doubt, bigger is better in this case.
