A Mother's Love for....Table Linens?

Posted by

You know, as a mom of three very busy and very messy children, I sometimes just plain get burned out on cleaning. I understand that this is the season of life that I am in, but it seems like this entire season is filled with cooking, cleaning, and doing the duties of a taxi driver. As a matter of fact, I recently read a study that said that the average mom spends over 2 hours per day doing household cleaning and other activities, such as cooking, food prep, etc. I’m glad to know that it is not just me, but I bet y’all are just as tired as I am!

I mean, I love being a mom, I love my children more than life itself, but oh my goodness if I spend one more day scrubbing my table from milk and food spills I might just lose my mind. This is why I am a big fan of disposable table linens, this is especially true for those times we have people over for dinner. I am a person that likes to sit and visit with friends and family after dinner, I don’t like to stress about having to make sure I clean the table asap after dinner to avoid any sticky messes or stains. I also try to keep plenty of them on hand for those last-minute gatherings that my family is famous for.

My hands down, absolute favorite table linens to use are the paper table linens from right here at Sassafrass. Seriously, they look great, they are super durable and they make clean up a breeze!
