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.
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.
Tablecloths are the need of every house. But you will not find many who really care about the durability of the tablecloth before buying. If the tablecloth has a good design and a nice look, then it is bought without even thinking of its quality. I will tell you why getting a durable tablecloth is important.
Changing a tablecloth is such a simple thing to do, and it only takes 5 or 10 minutes. So it’s amazing how much of a difference it can make to a room. A new tablecloth can instantly change the entire look and feel of your kitchen or dining room. They’re also an easy way to decorate for the holidays. Just drape a tablecloth covered with Christmas trees or autumn leaves over your table, and you’ll find it nearly impossible not to get into the spirit of the season. Tablecloths have their practical purposes, too. They can protect a table from the perils of hot serving dishes and spilled drinks. They can also help to hide a table that might not be in the best condition. Yes, you can buy tablecloths. But buying a piece of fabric to make a tablecloth is a lot less expensive than buying a tablecloth ready-made. In fact, for the price of one ready-made tablecloth, you can probably make three or four.
For semi-formal indoor dining or outdoor parties, polyester table cloths offer similar benefits of cotton as well as some additional perks. Polyester is a synthesized material that is used to make fabric and can be combined with other fabrics like cotton to create a polyester blend. Like cotton, polyester is durable, machine-washable, relatively inexpensive and available in many colors and patterns. Unlike cotton, polyester will not shrink if it is placed on a long cycle in a dryer. Polyester has a slightly silkier and shinier appearance than cotton which makes it better suited for more formal affairs like weddings or birthday parties. Some people have sensitivities to polyester because it is made from chemicals.
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.
