Outstanding table linens can turn a good meal into a great meal. Think about it — gorgeous place settings, a coordinated tablecloth, placemats and napkins — somehow they make the food taste that much better. The truth is, it’s all about the atmosphere, and owning a variety of table linen sets that can be mixed and matched for any occasion is key to creating that desired ambience. Read on for more helpful table linen tips.
As you’re shopping for new linens, consider what you already own and how any new additions will complement them. For those just starting their table linen collection, go for the basics and dress them up with creative napkin rings or place cards. Guests always appreciate personal touches; plus, you’ll be able to reuse those same napkins, tablecloths and placemats at the next gathering.
Having the proper kitchen linens for prep and cleanup is just as important. Throw on an apron to save your clothing from the inevitable spills and splatters that occur while cooking; the fun patterns that aprons come in will make chopping and stirring feel like a party in itself! Washable dish towels are an eco-friendly solution to wiping up said spills and splatters from all surfaces, and also double as stylish kitchen decor. Don’t forget to have oven mitts and pot holders handy for transferring piping-hot dishes to the table — third-degree burns would certainly spoil even the nicest ambience.
