The size of the table linen should be chosen while keeping the occasion in mind. For formal occasions, it should hang down 10 inches to 12 inches around the table. If you want to add extra elegance, then you can create a drop of 15 to 30 inches. The key to creating a dramatic look is to choose a longer drop.
Though tablecloths are primarily a functional means of protecting tables from damage, they are also an opportunity to add color and style to a kitchen or outdoor living area. Tablecloths are manufactured in a variety of materials including cotton, polyester, linen and vinyl; specialty tablecloths for weddings and events may be made out of silk or organza. The purpose of the tablecloth determines which material will best suit your needs, but each material offers benefits and drawbacks in terms of functionality or style.
Main use light color or pure white table cloth, cotton cloth is given priority to, because cotton has strong water absorption and softness, light and white can foil the elegant environment, for the customer to clean hygiene sweet and comfortable feeling. Most of the stains on hotel tablecloths are food, wine, vegetable juice and condiments. Specific subdivisions may include cream, fish, gravy, vegetable juice, soft drinks, tea, coffee, red wine, white wine, soy sauce, vinegar, and other condiments and seasonings, and possibly even vomit. Since the source of the stain is more complex, the distribution of the stain is crisscrobed, the time of the stain is longer and so on, it is difficult for the hotel tablecloth to be stained and washed. However, as long as we make rational analysis of all the sources of stains, it is not difficult to find a solution to the washing. The stains on the tablecloth are divided by nature, which may consist of tannic acid, protein, vegetable oil, wine, vinegar, salt, sugar and pigment.
If you think that you can't do much with a tablecloth, think again. Getting creative with your tablecloth placement and usage can have a dramatic visual effect on any dinner, event or banquet. Tablecloths, when used cleverly, make just as big a statement as flowers, centerpieces and the rest of your decor-you just have to be willing to arrange them in ways you haven't necessarily tried before. When you do that, your table settings will get as much acclaim as whatever you put on them.
A colored tablecloth will instantly brighten any space and make it more inviting. This colored option from Solino Home is crafted from pure European flax linen, which is durable yet soft to the touch. It will easily withstand years of dinner parties and family events.
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.
