Adding a splash of colour or texture to your table with placemats and table runners can be a refreshing change to an everyday meal.
For all of us addicted to home decor we know that adding some colour and texture to a table can be as satisfying as the meal itself, all the “oh the table looks gorgeous” and the “that must have taken you ages” from friends and family is totally worth it!
Funny thing is, that can actually take you less than five minutes to set the table up like a professional stylist, so why are we not doing it more often?
Using placemats everyday can be a nice touch to the table for an everyday meal, but how about adding a table runner or table cloth when guests are coming for dinner or a light lunch, or for the family meal on special occasions.

The use of a table runner can dress up a table in seconds, used on its own or with placemats also, it provides a base for either a centrepiece for your table, or to place your platters on down the centre of the table for easy sharing, a table runner under dishes of delicious platters and bowls can make a meal more appealing just by adding some colour to the table.
Using layers of placemats and table runners can also add some interest to your table, a colourful layer with a more natural layer under your place settings is a nice touch to add something special.
The same goes for tablecloths, use one on its own, or again, add a table runner or placemats to add a little more interest to the table. Tablecloths are usually used for a more formal meal, but used regularly can really make an occasion feel just that little bit more special.
