For most American families, mealtime is the time the family gets together. As such most homeowners make sure the dining table is laden with a good tablecloth. Although the main function of the best tablecloths for everyday use is to protecttables from possible damage, they add a lot of style, elegance, colorand class to your dining table, too. You may not realize it but using an amazing tablecloth can make your simple meal look and taste more appetizing. Because of all these reasons it is no wonder that homemakers make the effort of choosing the right tablecloths.
A tablecloth is much more than a piece of fabric you put on your dining table. Think about it, we spend several hundred to thousands of dollars on our dining room tables, yet we still cover it up as though it were something we are ashamed of. But surely we aren’t ashamed of the way our dining table looks. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have purchased it in the first place right? The fact that we use tablecloths on something we have invested so much money into (most likely because we loved the way it looks) lets you know that there is a deeper reason for covering it.
Tablecloths bring ambience and completeness to your dining experience. Whether formal or casual, it adds the special touch to the occasion that you would like to remember and celebrate.
If your table proves difficult to dress with a standard cloth, consider using other table linens as design elements. For extra wide tables, use multiple runners in place of a single tablecloth, by placing runners either across the width as “placemats for two” or use two runners along the length of the table under the place settings. If your table is oblong or oval, use a rectangular cloth allowing it to pool on the “corners”.
Some people still like to use a tablecloth every day. You might like them for convenience sake (keeping the table clean) as much as the way they look, or the slightly more formal feel they bring to mealtimes. For other people, dressing the table is more something they do on special occasions, or at important times of year like Christmas. Day to day, a bare table feels more relaxed, while a tablecloth feels natural for celebrations, when you’re adding more layers of decoration.
Although you want to serve quality, tasty food, don't feel the need to spend a fortune on brand new supplies for your party. Try to use some of the items you already have, and incorporate them with a few new things you've purchased. You can always improvise. Things like a tablecloth, oval or round for your circular table may, be necessary to buy if you need one or two, but rental tablecloths may be more cost effective if you need several.
