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.
Tablecloth design, like any other fashion art form, reflected existing tastes and styles of the period. We can use the records of these fashions and moods to generally determine dates. Although in some cases the tablecloths can be assigned to a general decade, as I have done in my book, or even to a specific group of years, the lack of manufacturing records or other cataloguing of these delightful keepsakes makes assigning any one date extremely difficult. For my book, I researched the history of the dyes, copyright & trademark records and poured over vintage catalogs to come up the a “quick reference summary” to help you date your tablecloths.
Table linens are often put through the wringer. Whether you're hosting a small picnic in your backyard or are catering a 250-person wedding, you're going to need to rely on quality tablecloths to see the event through to the end. You've got a variety of choices at your disposal: fitted tablecloth covers, rustic faux burlap table linens, plain tablecloths, uniquely patterned tablecloths, and all the options in between.
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.

Tables at our homes are the functional pieces of furniture that are used to eat meals, keep things etc. But apart from that they are elements of our interior design and bare tables not always look good. A beautiful good quality tablecloth is essential for a pretty looking table. And when we say “beautiful, good quality cloth tablecloths” we of course mean a linen tablecloth. Tablecloths are not only a piece of cloth to cover the top of the table but they also are an important detail of interior design. They create cozy and welcoming atmosphere in the room.
