Tablecloth buying doesn’t need to be difficult, although we have all stood at the local linen store staring at the large selection hoping the perfect one will just fall off the shelf at us! If you’re in the market for some new linens or just want to know how to start, we’ve got some helpful tips and ideas to get you going.
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.
Have a dinner party coming up and want to dress up your table in the most beautiful way possible? Use a sophisticated, subtle tablecloth to display a little distinguished character. Have an important event coming up and really want to make it a time to remember? Use a tablecloth for a special dinner party and surprise your guests with the stunning set-up.
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.
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?
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.
