Creating a Landscape Feature Out of Your Pond

When I first bought my home, I was unsure about the man-made pond in the backyard. The water was green and there was no wildlife to be seen. I decided to work with the water feature instead of spending money on fill materials to get rid of the pond. I added a water fountain to the space first that featured a submersible pump and I later added fish. After installing a filtration system and an aeration device, my pond became the central landscaping feature on my property. I made a lot of mistakes as I completed the installations. I had to learn about the biological filtration and I had to figure out how to control algae with shade plants. I want you to have an easier time than I did creating a water feature, so read my blog to find out what you need to do.

Linen Table Runners For All Occasions

Meals that are going to be eaten indoors or outdoors and that require the use of one or more long tables may prompt you to add some festive decor to the spread of food. A linen runner is a cloth that can be displayed along the length of a table. The fabric will protect raw wood or painted surfaces from liquid spills and can be used for concealment purposes.

A Table Runner That Conceals

If you will be serving some hot vats of food that require that you set them up on individual hot pads, you may want to conceal the pads. Purchase a dark-colored table runner that is wide enough to cover all of the edges of each pad that will be resting underneath a container of food.

After laying down the pads, unroll the linen table runner and line it along the table. The weight of the dinnerware that is holding each entree or appetizer will aid with keeping the table runner in place.

A Table Runner That Can Be Used During Holiday Meals

If you are getting started on your holiday plans and will be hosting several group dinners at your home, using colorful table runners will add to the festive setting that you will be preparing for your guests. Linen is a lightweight fabric that can easily be pressed after each laundering session.

Purchase a runner that will cover the central part of the table or that will act as a full cover that runs along the entire surface of a tabletop. Select fabric that contains colors and graphics that will coordinate with holiday dinnerware that you will be using to create place settings. 

A Table Runner That Can Be Used During Fancy Occasions

Hosting a cocktail hour or an elegant dinner party may persuade you to bring out your best china and stemware. A table runner that contains fancy lace trim or ornate tassels will make the drinking or dining area look graceful. Review several table runner styles and choose one that contains accent pieces that run along each end of the fabric.

Avoid purchasing a runner that contains trim pieces that run along the long sides of the cloth since any hanging materials could get in the way of your dinner guests, as they are seated around the table. Because this type of table runner contains multiple materials, take care when laundering it. The linen fabric can be placed inside of a mesh bag prior to laundering the material or you can hand wash the fabric.

Look into table runners from companies like Provimo Home to find one you like.
