That sounds great, though I don't get this "Some of the edges will be charred/blackened." Why do that?I asked about the tablecloth only because my wife insists on them for Sabbath and Holiday meals. I don't especially like them and I like our table better without. I do, like, however, that she has specific ones for specific holidays and seasons. It is odd, but things like that really matter to kids. It helps establish their sense of occasion and time.
