Choosing Your Wedding Tablecloths: How to Select the Right Size & Color for your Event

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Tablecloths are a key part of your wedding décor. They will be touched by guests and will set the tone for the rest of the venue. Make sure you give your table décor the best backdrop by selecting high quality fabrics in the right size and color!

Measure Your Tabletop to Find the Best Tablecloth Size

You must know the dimensions and shape of your tabletop before you buy the cloth to cover it. Wholesale tablecloths come in three main categories: banquet, round and square.  To determine size, measure the length and width (for square and rectangle/banquet tables) or the diameter (for round tables).

Keep in mind that you want a cloth with some overhang, so you don’t want to buy one that’s close to the actual size of the tabletop. Most tables will need either a halfway overhang or an overhang that reaches the floor (approximately 15 inches to 30 inches). Determine how much overhang you would like then multiply that number by two and add it to your table dimensions. This is the ideal size of your tablecloths.

Choosing the Best Tablecloth Color

The best colors for your tablecloths will vary based on your event, décor style and preferences. Most weddings feature a two to three hue color scheme. You can choose just one color to cover all the tables or alternate all colors for a more varied look.

If you want a similar style, you can also stick with solid black or white. This option works with any color scheme you choose and will give you tablecloths that will match any future events you plan. Also remember to consider the possibility of table overlays, which give you another way to incorporate amazing color into your table décor!

Table Linen Care: Instructions That Will Make Your Linens Last Longer!

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Table linens are a must-have for any high class event. Whether you’re hosting a wedding reception, graduation party or a milestone birthday party, linens can take the décor and atmosphere to the next level. Quality linens will last a long time as long as they are properly cared for. Wholesale tablecloths are a great investment as they can be used for years to come. Make your event investment last even longer by getting more out of your fabric accessories!

Always Follow the Manufacturer’s Instructions

Your table linens will include specific instructions recommended by the manufacturer. This will usually include a note about how to clean and care for your fabric products. Make sure you read this information entirely and follow it as specified. This is the best way to avoid faded colors, unraveled seams and other common cloth napkin issues.

Choose Durable Linens That Are Low Maintenance

If you plan to buy linens, make sure you choose a product that is low maintenance. Fabrics that are resistant to stains and wrinkling will be the easiest to care for. Also look for linens that do not require a third party cleaning service. Fabrics that can be washed right at home in your washing machine and dryer will make life much easier before and after each event!

Have a Stain-Removal Plan for your Linens

No matter how careful you or your guests are, it is going to happen. Eventually a stain will wind up on your beautiful table linens. The best way to deal with this problem is to have a plan in place before it happens so you can get the stain out quickly and effectively.

The plan will vary based on the type of material used to make your cloth napkins or tablecloths as well as what was spilled on them. If you’re removing red wine from satin, make sure you absorb as much as you can with a towel then soak in warm water. Oil and grease stains can be lifted using a sprinkling of baby powder. Stained polyester, on the other hand, could be cleaned with rubbing alcohol, dish soap and/or vinegar.
