Summer Tablecloths

Tablecloths for your Summer Terrace!

 The weather is warmer, the days are longer, it’s time for dinner on the terrace as the sun sets and the stars come out…
The summer markets of Provence are filled with lovely tablecloths that set the scene for your evening meal. 

The tables are piled with bolts of lively fabrics and the spines of the market stall umbrellas are hung with delightful and lovely round cloths.  

They are made of the nicest cottons; some plain and soft, others are coated with a mild acrylic that means easy cleaning for you! 
 Just a damp cloth at the end of the meal and you are ready for dessert, coffee, and a wonderful glass of port.  

The market at Aix en Provence is enormous and is the home of one of my favorite sellers.  She always has the nicest variety of fabrics and the best array of cloths and other linens.
