It’s tempting to think that when it comes to buying tablecloths, the only thing that matters is the size of the tables you need to cover. While it’s absolutely true that you can blindly purchase linens without any sort of knowledge regarding table linens, knowing just a few things about textiles will help you better understand your own needs as a consumer when buying a tablecloth–or, more likely, enough tablecloths for an entire party.
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.
For every day use in an eat-in kitchen or informal dining room, cotton tablecloths are an excellent option. Cotton is easy to produce and process, which keeps the price low on most cotton options. Most cotton tablecloths are machine washable, though some tablecloths with multicolored patterns may show some color bleeding after washing. Cotton tablecloths can also be spot cleaned with a damp rag or sponge. In terms of durability, few fabrics compare to long-lasting cotton. Cotton tablecloths are available in a wide range of colors, patterns and sizes which also contribute to their popularity. Though cotton tablecloths can be used outdoors, they can mold or deteriorate after long periods of exposure to extreme weather or moisture.
To get the right size, you need to measure the length and width of the table and add the length of the drop according to your personal taste. You need to consider the shape of the table while measuring the tablecloth. If there are different sized tables that you use, then it is better to buy the table linen that has the largest size.
Are there kids in your home? If yes, getting durable tablecloths are very important for you. Aside from the happiness you get from your kid you cannot neglect their mischief. There is no way you can stop them from dirtying your favorite tablecloth every now and then. In any case, you have only one choice, that is wash it off. What will happen if you have to do this every day with a normal 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!
