And I don’t mean put shoes on the table!
But try pretty table runners instead of a tablecloth on your outdoor table. Run them crosswise rather than lengthwise. You can use one, two or three depending on the size of your table. The useful thing is that, unlike a tablecloth, they don’t have to fit perfectly.
They are very easy to make. Simply cut pieces of fabric to size and stitch any raw edges. Choose light, summery fabric or burlap for a rustic look. You can suit the material and color scheme to suit the occasion such as Cinco de Mayo or July 4.
