I have these table runners in two colors for church dinners and parties, green for St Patrick Day and orange is one of our priest's favorite color. They add so much to a room full of long tables. I originally meant to use them over cloth tablecloths but when somebody used white paper table covers, they made the tables look just as good as If we were using fine linens. Will definitely buy more colors as the need arises. Also they take up very , very little storage space and don't need to be ironed from use to use if they are wiped clean before being stored. Have not had to wash them yet because they don 't get stained.
