Welcome to Lydia and Nathalia, a boutique specializing in lovely table coverings. Designer, decorative, fancy and plain, big and small; here your will find tablecloths, toppers, runners, doilies and more, everything you'll need to beautifully dress your tables.
Do your remember your mother's and grandmothers' dining tables? Dressed with crisp linens, the best dishes and stemware, their tables were a delight for every holiday and Sunday dinner. Tea was served in pretty teacups and candy in glass dishes. The kitchen table often wore a stamped cloth. Doilies dressed up tables and protected sofa and chair arms. Dressers wore hand embroidered scarves with crocheted edges. I treasure my memories of my grandmothers and, thus, have named this boutique in honor of them: Lydia and Nathalia. By offering these table dressings I hope to bring back the romance and beauty of days past to you.
In all categories, except those in Dressings, I have designed and created each item. Fabric and trimmings may be vintage or new, acquired from near or afar. While I pay special attention to quality workmanship and detail, imperfections may add charm and beauty to each handcrafted item. All are one of a kind. I will attempt to accurately describe each item and note and flaws or imperfections.
For ease of shopping, categories include: Rectangle, Round, Square,Placemats & Runners, So-Special, Dressings, Finishing Touch & Holidays. The first three refer to the shape of the coverings.Placemats & Runners has individual pieces and sets. "So-Special" features cloths with special occasions in mind such as weddings, baptisms, confirmations, bar mitzvahs, anniversaries and holidays; anytime you desire a little more flare. "Dressings" may include items designed by myself or acquired over the years from unknown sources and may be new or previously loved. Cloths, toppers, doilies, scarves may be included because they enhance the table dressing process. Finishing Touch includes napkins, napkin rings, candles, glassses, etc. Holidays has cloths perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year. Please visit often to see items that are added routinely. Free shipping (see policies).
So, pour yourself a glass of wine or a cup of tea and enjoy your journey through all the treasures offered here. I hope it will bring back loving memories of your mothers and grandmothers too.
Wiedersehen (see you again),
