Another practical and ornamental table accessory, you can lay table runners across the length of the table to protect your lovely table and table cloth, if using one. Lay your food on the runners. Or, use shorter runners across the width, in sync with the placement of chairs. And at the same time decorate, or give an older table a face-lift. Pick from an array of gorgeous block printed cotton, hand woven cotton, handwoven banana stem, blended with river grass, leaves and cotton threads, handwoven flax linen, and handwoven silk!
