Old-Fashioned Tablecloths Are Best

Tablecloths give both regal or whimsical touches to dining room and kitchen tables, especially during the Christmas season.

Throughout the years, quite a few different and festive cloths have made their way into our home.

It's fun changing them around and adding different touches to make the dining room table sparkle.

My beloved friend, Patti, gave me the lovely red glasses from Italy that I never tire of using. 

They make guests feel extra special.

Truthfully,  there is not a favorite cloth among the collection. 

All are loved, used,  washed, and carefully packed away when the season is over.

I too love the old table linens best of all.
Yes, I have a couple that I use - one of which belonged to my husband's late mother and it's at least 60 years old.

I do remember that first one - I saw the picture and knew it was your blog - I still love it. I love table clothes too -


Oh I too love table linen, specially the old ones.
I have many tablecloths and a table is almost noting without they warmth and beauty. Most of mine are family heirlooms, gifts or old fashion.
Thank you for the lovely post. All of your toppers are very pretty.
Merry Xmas.

I have a lovely green one from Mom that I take out each Christmas season. I have a couple from Mexico that have lasted for years. I love them especially when I have company. Your table settings are very festive.

I love the olden tablecloths too, Susan! There is something so very special about them that you don't find in the new ones. I think they're called Memories!
