I love vintage table cloths ....  and recently add vintage patterned oil cloth to my list of loves . Here are some of my favorite...

1)    This is an oil cloth in a vintage pattern .
I could not have lived without .The company who's make these  
stylish WIPEABLE  table cloth 
were set up at the 4th ave street fair this year .

Just about the same pic but this one shows
 the sweet little gingham edge.

2) My brother sent me these from an estate sale 

It has a pocket to hold the napkin !

3) An over sized napkin ...soon to become a pillow .
the little fruit pattern.
