The aim of using round tablecloths is to make sure that tables are safe from wear and tear as they are regularly used. Cotton is the best choice because it is highly absorbent and durable. Cotton table clothes are affordable and easy to maintain. You can wash them in warm water and you can buy them in a variety of colors which makes them perfect for different occasions. They are an excellent choice for the dining table, kitchen area, and even outdoors.
Utilising a tablecloth has been common for many years but in the past few decades, and wipe clean tablecloths have gained popularity. While both wipe clean and the cotton tablecloth both can be used there are positives and negatives to either.
If you think that you can't do much with a tablecloth, think again. Getting creative with your tablecloth placement and usage can have a dramatic visual effect on any dinner, event or banquet. Tablecloths, when used cleverly, make just as big a statement as flowers, centerpieces and the rest of your decor-you just have to be willing to arrange them in ways you haven't necessarily tried before. When you do that, your table settings will get as much acclaim as whatever you put on them.
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.
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.
