Though tablecloths are primarily a functional means of protecting tables from damage, they are also an opportunity to add color and style to a kitchen or outdoor living area. Tablecloths are manufactured in a variety of materials including cotton, polyester, linen and vinyl; specialty tablecloths for weddings and events may be made out of silk or organza. The purpose of the tablecloth determines which material will best suit your needs, but each material offers benefits and drawbacks in terms of functionality or style.
Many people may not think much about tablecloths until they need them. Events such as weddings, parties and family dinners are the perfect opportunity to dress up the table of the home. Tablecloths add spice and variety not just to the table, but to the atmosphere and the occasion it’s being used for. Although tablecloths are mainly used to protect tables from wear and tear, they are also used to provide style and variety to not only the table but the room as well.
The tablecloths of today probably don’t speak to your social status as much as they did in the past, but when you select the right colors, the right sizes and shapes and the right materials that suit your event or occasion, then your table will most notably be a stand out on its own.
If you want to top off your tablescapes with even more elegant fabric, table runners and table overlays are icing on the cake. A table runner is a long table linen that can be used on top of a tablecloth, or alone on a bare table for a clean and classic look. Table overlays offer an extra layer to your tablescape which is great for broadening your event color palette or adding depth with an interesting pattern like polka dot, animal print, or even a textured fabric like burlap.
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.
Changing a tablecloth is such a simple thing to do, and it only takes 5 or 10 minutes. So it’s amazing how much of a difference it can make to a room. A new tablecloth can instantly change the entire look and feel of your kitchen or dining room. They’re also an easy way to decorate for the holidays. Just drape a tablecloth covered with Christmas trees or autumn leaves over your table, and you’ll find it nearly impossible not to get into the spirit of the season. Tablecloths have their practical purposes, too. They can protect a table from the perils of hot serving dishes and spilled drinks. They can also help to hide a table that might not be in the best condition. Yes, you can buy tablecloths. But buying a piece of fabric to make a tablecloth is a lot less expensive than buying a tablecloth ready-made. In fact, for the price of one ready-made tablecloth, you can probably make three or four.
