Do you face problems of un-pressed, bad smelling tablecloths while going to use them for a sudden dinner party? If yes then the problem is the way you store the tablecloth, and not in your tablecloth.
Like to keep everything in place? It can be very frustrating to see the napkins you so carefully selected folded asymmetrically. That’s exactly why we have napkin rings to hold those napkins in place! Have a table skirt trying to skirt off the edge of the table? Try table skirt clips! You can also pretty up your event with doilies, ribbons, fabric rolls, and confetti. Decorate your tables and venue with what’s appropriate for your event–a little intuition about these things go a long way!
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.
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.
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.
