Do you use cloth table coverings regularly or just at holidays?

I like using them all the time. It just makes the meal seem nicer.

  • We use one every day. It helps keep our furniture in nice condition, makes every meal feel special, and makes cleaning the table a little easier.

  • Just at holidays. I have two small children so I would end up having to wash it every single night... much easier to wipe the table clean this way. I agree though, it makes meals much nicer... just not worth the hassle right now at our house!

  • My MIL brought me over one from her country when she came to visit. I kept it one on for about a year after. I kind of like just the wood look really, so I don't use it now.

  • I would like to use them all the time, but that will have to wait until my little ones are older. At this point a tablecloth is an accident waiting to happen. It's not so much that they intentionally pull on the table cloth, but the table and chairs are a bit over-sized for them and they fidget a lot trying to keep themselves able to reach their plates and cups.

  • I like to use them all the time. I actually want to get a couple new ones cause i've had the same two (red and purple) for the last 4 years..

  • My kids are 9 and 6, and there's always a table cloth on the table with placemats and a seasonal table piece or candle. I don't want my table to get scratched up and I think it makes the dining room look more put together.
