You might be feeling like Spring will never come, but as it does, every year, you will be knee high in menus, centrepieces & more before you know it. This year we thought we would help you get a head start on table top!
While you might be lucky enough to find a ready made tablecloth in just the right size and colour, more often than not, it calls for some custom work or at the very least a special order. Finding the perfect tablecloth can often take time - in both choosing & ordering the linens - time that quickly runs out and often leaves the hostess feeling rushed & unsatisfied with the final outcome. Let's take a few minutes and map it all out, positioning you ahead of the game.
Calculating the right size tablecloth can be less than simple, check out our 5 Steps to the Perfect Tablecloth for an easy to follow guide. Once you know what size tablecloth you need, it's on to the fun part - picking the style and colour of your table linens!
Will your event be formal, informal or a little of both? Choose a longer drop (part of the tablecloth that hangs off the table) for a traditional, formal look and play with shorter drops, even table runners on a bare table, for a more playful, informal feel.
Choose one or two solid, neutral colours for all table linens (Cloth, Placemats & Napkins) for a minimalist look. Go for the complete formal feel with a silky sateen damask in a rich red, blue or purple. Take a crisp, neutral tablecloth and dress it up with mix and match placemats & napkins full of colour or patterns for a whimsical, fanciful table.
