OK, I’m sure that’s a dumb question… but I really don’t know. I have a nice dining room table with a table pad.
Is a table pad to use while eating; say under a nice table cloth?
And other times you remove it to show how nice the table is?
Is a table pad for use when the table is not in use to protect it from thing being set on it and, oh I don’t know… forgotten about, and then when you eat, you remove the table pad and get to eat on a pretty table (possibly with a table cloth)??
Is it for use all the time both eating, and otherwise because after all it IS for protecting the table?
