The table cloths are not paper they are cloth. They are only out at dinner - they use a paper Mat on the table (like they’d use at a diner type establishment) for breakfast and lunch - table cloth only at dinner. I had metal cutlery at both dinners and on the last lunch. It was plastic at breakfast and at the first lunch. They may just be trying to go through their stock of stuff.Is this just transitional or will plastic cutlery and paper table cloths be permanent? I thought I had read that real china is coming back.
