Eating dinner together as a family is one of the most important things parents can do for their kids. It not only encourages better, healthier eating habits, it also deepens that important family connection. It's a time when everyone can sit down together, share their day, and catch up.
While the people around the table are the most important, it's also nice to set a scene that is visually pleasing. Setting the table with a colorful tablecloth, napkins, placemats, and flatware is a great way to brighten everyone's mood as they sit down.
Having a bright tablecloth on your table is also great for parties, or small gatherings with friends. It's practical, but it also looks great and can enhance other decorations or decor you have in the room.
Below, we're detailing some of the top reasons why you should cover your table in color. Read on to learn more.
1. Protect Your Table
If you have young kids or clumsy family, spills are a natural part of life. If you also have a beautiful dining room table, protecting it from those spills should be a top priority. A colorful tablecloth is a perfect way to do just that.
Covering your table with a bright cloth that you know can be machine washed can bring you peace of mind. You'll be able to create a beautiful scene at dinner, but you won't have to worry about your table getting destroyed.
This can also be great during a party if your friends get a little too rambunctious because you won't have to worry about spills and scratches. You'll be able to relax and have fun, knowing your table is safe.
2. Show Off Your Personality
The way you decorate your home reflects your personality, and the dining room is no exception. Adding color to your table is a great way to make the space feel unique to you, and it gives you a chance to show off the design aesthetic you love.
And colorful doesn't have to mean crazy. If your style is more subdued or if you want to strike an elegant tone, stick to a tablecloth that's a single hue. If you do want to be bolder, consider tablecloths that incorporate several colors and patterns together.
3. Create a Theme
One of the most fun ways to entertain friends and family is by hosting a themed dinner party. A lot of that theme will come through in the food, but it should also come through in the way you set your table.
If you're going for a Southern picnic theme, for example, look for a red-and-white checked tablecloth. If you're serving foods from India, consider brighter hues like red and gold. If you're hosting your child's birthday party, pick their favorite color.
