  • Beautiful Dinner Experience: This is one of the few days when “a moment on the lip, forever on the hip” does not matter. So leave that part of the evening untouched… However, what you can spruce up is the experience of devouring your mother’s delicious food – give your dinner table a regal makeover!

Tablerunners pose as a sophisticated element to dining tables. One way to choose these could be complementing colours or patterns with either your napkins or the fabric on your furnishings. However, it is imperative to note that if you’re choosing a patterned tablecloth, then your dinner set must be simple and mono-coloured, and vice versa.
