Do you use a special tablecloth or place mats when setting your holiday table?

now that's a neat idea, fran. we have sawhorses but no big board. if we did i could use the tablecloth that my mom embroidered for me years ago, right after i did one for her and daddy. lol

i don't have a big dining room table, mainly because i don't have a dining room, lol.

only rose and joshua will sit at the table in the kitchen and it has seasonal place mats on it.

When we had Christmas at my moms we always had the dinner table set up in the livingroom...kitchen was really small.
There was over 20 of us...
The table was made with saw horses and boards....covered with a nice table cloth...LOL


we had the table in the dining area onm the otherside of the kitchen counter. for big christmas`s mom had the ping pong table off the pool table in the dining area over the table and on saw horses. lol

I have a white plastic fake lace one that is probably too worn out this year after many years of use.
