Let's have a look at how the Italians can eat fantastic pasta dishes,dip their bread in olive oil,wash it all down with glasses of red wine amidst many friendly hand gestures and general merriment!
A wonderful array of home cooked dishes are generally put down the centre of the table which has been covered with an attractive tablecloth. Then the dishes are served onto plates by the hostess or if "Italian" this would probably be "Mumma"! Wine is poured and 'Bon Appetito' it is!
This is all done without ruining the tablecloth and Table setting!
At Gypsy Tableware we have a large collection of treated Italian fabric tablecloths. The fabrics are treated to enable them to fight off nasty, unpredictable spills and splashes, allowing liquids to bead up,easily wiped away when blotted with a clean cloth, and food mass such as that pasta sauce can be wiped off with a damp cloth.
An Old Italian Proverb: A tavola non si invecchia.
(Translation: At the table with good friends and family you do not become old.)
Let's face it you don't have to be Italian to enjoy a wonderful meal with family and friends. Just do it!
