If you live in a house with kids which is going to guarantee accidents, you’ll want to consider the wipeable tablecloth, as it will save you time and money in the long run. If you are in an environment these accidents are less frequent, then the cost advantage of the cotton tablecloth will be more attractive to you.
Everyone will have guests in their home. Now imagine your tablecloth getting torn up only because your kid was trying to stand up holding it, maybe because it had become weak after 2-3 washes. The reason for tearing in not important here, what is important is how embarrassing the situation can be. So, if you don't want to face such a situation then you better have a durable tablecloth.
If you want to top off your tablescapes with even more elegant fabric, table runners and table overlays are icing on the cake. A table runner is a long table linen that can be used on top of a tablecloth, or alone on a bare table for a clean and classic look. Table overlays offer an extra layer to your tablescape which is great for broadening your event color palette or adding depth with an interesting pattern like polka dot, animal print, or even a textured fabric like burlap.
Tablecloths are manufactured from different kinds of materials, including cotton, vinyl, linen and silk. The type of material used will mostly be determined by the occasion the tablecloth will be used for. Some tablecloths work best for certain events and in certain locations. However, each type of tablecloth has its advantages and disadvantages.
Tablecloth design, like any other fashion art form, reflected existing tastes and styles of the period. We can use the records of these fashions and moods to generally determine dates. Although in some cases the tablecloths can be assigned to a general decade, as I have done in my book, or even to a specific group of years, the lack of manufacturing records or other cataloguing of these delightful keepsakes makes assigning any one date extremely difficult. For my book, I researched the history of the dyes, copyright & trademark records and poured over vintage catalogs to come up the a “quick reference summary” to help you date your tablecloths.
Tables at our homes are the functional pieces of furniture that are used to eat meals, keep things etc. But apart from that they are elements of our interior design and bare tables not always look good. A beautiful good quality tablecloth is essential for a pretty looking table. And when we say “beautiful, good quality cloth tablecloths” we of course mean a linen tablecloth. Tablecloths are not only a piece of cloth to cover the top of the table but they also are an important detail of interior design. They create cozy and welcoming atmosphere in the room.
