Cool Idea: a Tablecloth Sans a Skirt

I recently introduced you to one of my favorite blogs, My Marrakesh, about a family's quest to build an eco chic boutique hotel, called Peacock Pavilions, in Marrakesh. As part of this quest, Maryam, the blogging girl, wanted her hotel's tables, Saarinen tables I might add, "to be, well, pretty." Instead of purchasing traditional round tablecloths or leaving the tables undressed, she designed her own tablecloths, edged with handmade passementarie buttons, because she didn't want "to cover the graceful stems of the Saarinen tables." If that's not sheer brilliance, I don't know what is. One look at the table settings, and I'm already booking my flight, waiting to hear the words, "dinner is served."

I love this! I should try to make one of these for my square dining table. We have one of those taller, counter height dining tables and it's square and the one thing that I found frustrating is that there are no square table cloths out there big enough to fit the table. I don't use one often but sometimes around holidays I like to use a table cloth just to dress things up a bit. This is a great solution to that problem!

Great idea! I love the look of a table cloth, but my husband hates getting his knees hung up in them. Love those chairs, too.
