Tabletop: Kraft Paper Table Runner Update

Issue 31 · Pacific Northwest Living · August 5, 2010

We posted about Kraft paper as instant table runner a couple of weeks ago; Amy (of the blog Good Gumption) takes the idea a step further: "On a recent visit to Bar Jules in San Francisco, I was charmed by how they keep track of table reservations—they simply write the name of the person who's reserved the table directly on the Kraft paper runner. Why not apply the same concept at home and use Kraft paper in lieu of table runner/place cards?"
