  • How to Determine the Right Size Tablecloth for Your Table

    How to Determine the Right Size Tablecloth for ...

    Table Linens

    When you’re having an event, whether it’s a big formal wedding, or just a small family gathering, to everything in between, you need the right size tablecloths for your tables. The worst feeling is putting the tablecloths on the day of the event to find that they barely fit the table, or hang over way too far. Don’t add any unnecessary stress to the event with a mishap like that! Follow our simple guidelines to how to pick the perfect size tablecloth for your table, whether round or rectangular. How to Determine the Right Size Tablecloth: 1. Measure your table from end to end on all sides, length and width, in both inches and centimeters.  For a round table, you will just need the diameter of the table. Some vendors will display them in the different measurements, so be sure you have both! 2. Know how many leaves you are using during your event or party so that you have the correct measurements. It is common to place 2 or 3 leaves in your table when having company over, so be sure your measurements are for the table size you will be using the day of the event. 3. Allow 8 to 10 inches from either end to allow for table skirting. For a more formal setting, such as for wedding linens, a longer drop of 12 to 18 inches will give a more luxurious feeling. 4. Once you determine the amount of drop you would like, multiply it by 2 for each side, and add it to the diameter or both length and width of your table. You would use the below equation for both the width and length. Table Length + (Drop X 2) = Your desired Tablecloth Length 5. If you want your rectangular tables to be covered to the floor, the tablecloth should have rounded corners so there isn’t any extra fabric bunched in the corners. 6. Double check the care instructions for the fabric you are purchasing your tablecloth in, as some materials are easier to care for, while others may shrink in the washer and dryer, causing you to need a tad more length then you imagined. Now that you know exactly how to determine the perfect size tablecloth, you will never have to get frustrated again when it comes to purchasing the wrong size. Our biggest tip is to double and triple check your measurements or calculations! Also, make sure you try the tablecloths on the event tables days before the event, if there is a problem you will have plenty of time to find a replacement or solution to the problem.

  • Ways to Reuse Old or Ruined Tablecloths

    Ways to Reuse Old or Ruined Tablecloths

    Table Linens

    Tablecloths are a lifesaver; they keep our tables protected from messes or scratches. They also are a great way to add some style and sophistication to any event, perfect for holidays or dinner parties. However, since they do take such a beating, they don’t always last as long as we would like. Some get stains on them that you can’t get out while others get tears or pulls. Either way, a number of tablecloths often end up in the garbage or in the donation pile. Don’t let your old or used tablecloths go to waste. We have some wonderful and creative ways to breathe new life into your old tablecloths. Tablecloths can easily be reused as picnic cloths outdoors, or kept in your car in case you need to change a tire, even for beach trips to lay all the food out on. Simple uses for tablecloths with a pair of scissors and some thread include cleaning rags, kitchen dishtowels, napkins, place mats, pot holders, even curtains or valances for small windows. If large enough, they can even be used for the backing of a quilt, or just pieces of a quilt. If you start thinking creatively and are more experienced with a needle and thread, you could even make a purse, apron, reusable grocery bags, or even baby bibs. If you like to craft, you can use your old tablecloths to make small embellishments like flowers, or even use them to cover the front of journals, scrapbooks or photo-albums. You can even take your holiday tablecloths and turn them into a brand new stocking. You can treat tablecloths the same as any piece of fabric you would have around the house to create clothes, house items, decorations and more. Make the world a greener place by keeping unwanted tablecloths out of the landfills and save yourself money by creating new items out of an old tablecloth. Your imagination is your only boundary when it comes to the many ways to reuse your old tablecloths. What have you ever made out of an old tablecloth?

  • Tips for Removing Stains in Tablecloths

    Tips for Removing Stains in Tablecloths

    Table Linens

    Tablecloths can take a beating, especially those that are used day in and day out. But even holiday tablecloths can be ruined in a moment with the spill of a glass of red wine. Don’t let a simple accident ruin a family heirloom or beloved tablecloth. To keep your tablecloths lasting as long as possible, we have some great tips for removing stains on tablecloths. There are many different products that can be used to help remove stains, our tips use general household ingredients, no fancy products. Before washing, be sure to remove any excess liquid or food from the tablecloth. Then clean it by hand with a mild detergent to see if the stain can be removed. Let it air dry, do not dry it in an electric dryer, as it will allow the stain to set in. If the hand wash showed some progress, you can repeat the process to hope for further results. The second step if the stain is still visible after two hand washings, is to soak the stained section in bowl of white vinegar. The white vinegar bath would consist of 1 tablespoon of vinegar for every quart of warm water. Soak it for one hour, but check the stain every 10 minutes to prevent damaging the tablecloth permanently. If step one and two are still not effective, you can move on to more evasive measures.  Use a similar mixture as step 2, but replace the vinegar with bleach. Use this mixture only on the area of the stain. Then place it flat in the sun to assist the bleaching process. Check on the stain’s progress about every 15 minutes. The sun can discolor the other parts of the tablecloth, so be sure to keep a close eye on it. These tips are especially helpful on antique tablecloths in which the stain may have already set in. If the last and final step does not completely remove the stain, and if is still pretty visible, you may want to find a way to reuse the tablecloth for other items in your home. Visit out blog next week for some easy and creative ways to reuse old or ruined tablecloths! How do you get stains out of your tablecloths or other linens?

  • How to Add Color to Your Wedding

    How to Add Color to Your Wedding

    wedding

    Bright and bold color combinations have been a huge trend for the 2012 wedding season. The key to perfecting this trend is by using the colors you have chosen in strategic and small places. You don’t want the colors to be overwhelming to guests or to be taking away from the overall décor instead of adding to it. There are numerous ways to stylishly and effectively add color to your wedding. Ceremony: Flowers are an obvious way to add colors easily, but you can also have accents on the ribbons on the ring bearer’s pillow and flower girl’s basket. Aisle runners can easily incorporate your wedding colors by being embroidered. Finally, wedding programs and fans allow you to tie the colors into your various stationary items as well. Attire: Colored bridal sashes have become very popular in many weddings, especially brightly colored ones. The bride’s heels and groom’s sock are very small places to not only add color to the wedding, but also to show off their personalities. Reception: Wedding table linens or chair sashes are the perfect opportunity to add that pop of color. Napkins or coasters are another inexpensive way to add color. The centerpieces, flowers, and other decorations should also have accents of your color scheme. Even your cake and cake topper can incorporate the colors of your wedding. Now remember, when adding these pops of color, do them in moderation. You want your wedding to look fun, modern and inviting, but not too loud to be distracting from the actual event. Choose up to three colors to use as accents throughout your wedding, and have fun with it. Use the colors in any place you can imagine, as long as it’s still stylish. Other than that, enjoy your day and make it “pop” in guests’ minds! How did you incorporate your colors into your wedding?

  • Tablecloths to Silverware, How to Set the Perfect Table

    Tablecloths to Silverware, How to Set the Perfe...

    table decoration wedding

    In today’s busy world, we barely have the time to sit down and eat, let alone set a formal dining table. It may not be needed as everyday knowledge, but whether you are setting your own table or attending a formal event, it will be important to know how to set the perfect table. As for a formal event, the setting and décor will be much different than a more casual lunch or breakfast, so keep that in mind. As for a formal event the table setting will follow the following order from left to right. Beginning on your left side you have your napkin, salad fork, dinner fork, and dessert fork. You will then set the dinner plate with the soup bowl or salad plate on top. After that, you will have the dinner knife, the teaspoon and finally the soup spoon. Above this line of silverware and dinnerware you will have the bread and butter plate along with the butter spreader above the forks. On the right side, above the knife and spoons will be your water goblet, red and white wine glasses. They will be arranged from left to right, beginning with the largest, the water goblet to the smallest, the white wine glass. This is not the only way that a formal table can be set; there is a number of additional silverware or dinnerware pieces that can be added. However, this is a simple guide that covers most of the needed items. As for the table linens, tablecloths, such as linen tablecloths, are almost always suggested for formal dinners, with matching cloth napkins if possible. After that, you can add unique touches to the table, including fresh flower centerpieces or candles. Even place cards for guests are an option and a nice touch to welcome guests. If setting your own table, make it a reflection of you. What occasions do you set your table with table linens?

  • Creating the Perfect Wedding Table

    Creating the Perfect Wedding Table

    event decor Table Linens wedding

    Creating the perfect table setting for a wedding may be a work of art. You must carefully coordinate colors, have arrangements that are properly sized for the table and encourage conversation. Here’s a few tips from TableclothsFactory.com to make your perfect setting a reality! Picking out your Tablecloths Begin making the perfect wedding table by adding tablecloths to the tables. Some couples prefer to use white tablecloths in conjunction with colored cloths. You may also choose to use one color for the bottom layer and a contrasting color that runs in a different direction. Long rectangular tables may benefit from the addition of colorful table runners. The centerpieces should be proportional to the size of the tables. For example, if the tables are short, the centerpiece should also be short. Longer tables can handle taller centerpieces, such as topiaries. Smaller tables can handle elegant candle arrangements or floral arrangements. The floral arrangements should not be so tall that they interfere with your guests’ ability to talk to one another across the table. This goal can also be achieved by placing the centerpieces in the space between guests’ chairs. This will prevent guests from being impeded from seeing each other. When choosing the centerpiece, also be sure that it coordinates with the table linens for a sophisticated and cohesive design!
