Choose an attractive table cloth or table cover to provide the perfect setting for your food, dinnerware or accessories. Choose a color that will show them off to their best advantage.

If you are planning on having an elaborate centerpiece or patterned dinnerware, choose a solid color to prevent clashing patterns or an overly busy look. Select from different textures, smooth, silky, homespun, or woven, depending on what kind of effect you want to create.

If you are not planning on having elaborate centerpieces, or ornamental dinnerware, consider a patterned tablecloth such as this one from Crate and Barrel. Compare Prices

The Marimekko Kumina Tablecloth table cloth comes in many different sizes and the pattern shows leaves in fall colors. Also available in orange. Designed by Erja Hirvi, Kumina ("cumin") is inspired by an autumn vegetable garden.
