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.
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.
Do you face problems of un-pressed, bad smelling tablecloths while going to use them for a sudden dinner party? If yes then the problem is the way you store the tablecloth, and not in your tablecloth.
Tablecloths are a great start, but definitely not the only thing you will need for your special event. Polyester or cotton-feel napkins are a great alternative for paper napkins for both aesthetic and environmental reasons, and they also look a lot nicer. Placemats are also great accessories to have because they have two important functions: adding depth to your color scheme and protecting your table linens.
Polyester is shinier and silkier compared to cotton. It is well suited for formal occasions. It is also pretty affordable. One of the disadvantages of polyester is that it is made up of chemicals that can be harmful. Make sure you are not allergic to it before buying it. Polyester table clothes are suitable for outdoors, kitchen and dining area.
