A sheet of a clear plastic or vinyl that you could place over the dining table that would protect your linen table cloth.

At the same time Joe was in the bathroom laying a new tile floor and when Bernice returned she was aghast to see a big portion of her new plastic table cover missing and found Joe with that piece glued into a big buble and held together with tile cement and running water over it in the tub. This is a long, but good story so I'll post it in parts. You are about to witness what Joe referred to as "Hillbilly Ingenuity."
