Familiesamilies start to take their holiday décor out of storage. Tablecloths in particular are something that we tend to spend a little extra money on, and want to keep looking perfect throughout the holiday season. It is important to properly preserve your tablecloth to keep it looking as though it is brand new each year.
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!
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.
For formal events like weddings, tablecloths are available in numerous specialty fabrics like silk or organza. Silk and organza are more expensive tablecloth options, but they offer a more luxurious appearance and a number of formal style options including embroidery. Specialty fabrics require more delicate washing and care but most specialty tablecloths are only used on occasion. Consider renting specialty linens to avoid the cost of purchasing them in large quantities.
A tablecloth is a cloth used to cover a table. Some are mainly ornamental coverings, which may also help protect the table from scratches and stains. Other tablecloths are designed to be spread on a dining table before laying out tableware and food. Some cloths are designed as part of an overall table setting, with coordinating napkins, placemats, or other decorative pieces. Special kinds of tablecloth include runners which overhang the table at two ends only and table protectors to provide a padded layer under a normal cloth.
Adorn the table for your party with a no-sew tablecloth using a large inexpensive drop cloth you can find at a hardware store in the paint section. With a bit of tracing you can easily convert the drab sheet of fabric into a cute scalloped tablecloth that can be dyed to match whatever color you need.
