Who said wipeable tablecloths are old-fashioned?
They are still very popular and I remember finding them in several homes when I visited friends and family.
I loved the white lacey and silky ones, they made our dining room look beautiful. The designs then were not much and they majorly came in plain colors.
How about now?
Tablecloths’ designs now look very cute to adorn your homes.
Tablecloths are still being used but not necessarily only for ornamental coverings.
They’re practical, stain-resistant, winkle-free and gives a beautiful touch to your indoor or outdoor tables.
