It seems to be a pervasive myths that tablecloths are only meant to serve a functional purpose. While there is no doubt that these modern fabrics are able to protect the underlying table from issues such as scratches and stains, we also need to keep in mind that they are critical in terms of aesthetics.
This is why choosing the perfect style and design can be a bit tricky. What impacts will such a decision have upon an upcoming gathering and more importantly, are there any professional tips to keep in mind? Let’s examine what the industry leaders have to say.
All About Visual Appeal
From patterns associated with traditional summer outings such as gingham to the pure white tones often seen at weddings and branded tablecloths, any fabric is intended to provide an eye-catching appeal for the day of the event. Still, you need to be sure that the tablecloth is able to work in synergy with the nearby environment.
Lighter tones are suited within small spaces while organic hues such as orange and auburn are able to provide the atmosphere with a sense of warmth. Above all, the “personality” of the covering should match the mood that you are trying to achieve.
What About the Dimensions?
Whether you opt for a printed tablecloth or one without any imagery, it is equally important to determine the “drop” (how much fabric is meant to hang over the edges of the table). Most drops range from between six and eight inches.
However, more formal gatherings can have longer dimensions. Drops provide a sense of elegance and help to ensure that the cloth does not move out of position while dining.
