Table Linens

I actually hate the look of a tablecloth over my dining table but with my friends and the food I serve, dinner gets so messy. So what do you use? Table runners? Placemats? Any recs? Thanks!

Placemats! Everyone at the table gets one, and then I put any food placed at the center of the table (for self-serving) on placemats as well or I put them on kitchen towels as to not damage the table.  It may not eliminate all messes, but sure does help reduce it some!

Placemats! They are easy and cheap so that you can change up the look for the occasion!

Placemats! They are so much easier to wash too! This also gives you more artistic freedom as well because it does not necessarily need to be a monochromatic color scheme.

Where have you had good luck finding cute placemats? I have some pretty napkin rings I'd like to use but can't seem to find placemats I like or chargers.

We definitely do placemats.  Macy's and Kohl's are my fav places to find them!  Both classic and seasonal.

Placemats... so easy to store away when you don't need them.
