Tablecloths Buying Guide

Tablecloths on a holiday table are both pretty and purposeful: They add charm and beauty as they complement a table's setup, but they also protect the surface underneath. And depending on the type you favor, tablecloths can be versatile, too, for use at more occasions than just Christmas. Read on for more information about tablecloths.

Types of Tablecloths

Types of Tablecloths

The type of tablecloth you choose depends on the size of your table, although sometimes, with a little creative maneuvering, you can use one size of tablecloth for different-size surface. Generally tablecloths come in oval, round, rectangular, or square shapes. While not traditional tablecloths, table runners and place mats may also be used in place of a single surface cover. Tablecloths also differ based on fabric or other material. Here's a brief overview of what to look for to find your perfect tablecloth.

Oval or Round

These circular tablecloths generally begin at a size that fits tables of about 36 inches in diameter. Larger ones will cover tables up to about 130 inches long.

Fabric

Many tablecloths are made of fabric, such as linen, cotton, or bamboo. The type of fabric will affect the care and durability of the tablecloth.

Faux Fabric

Some tablecloths are made of faux fabrics, such as vinyl, which may increase their durability but make them less attractive.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

A well-researched tablecloth purchase can last for years -- even decades -- and become a keepsake you give to other family members. To get the most use out of your holiday tablecloth, review several purchase considerations before buying. Those include price, which can vary widely; durability and care; and color and pattern. Use this short guide to tablecloth purchase considerations to get you started.

Price

The size of a tablecloth and material used to make it will affect price, as will the fabrication method. Tablecloths intended to last just a few years can be relatively inexpensive.

Durability and Care

If your tablecloth is washable, it may be able to withstand lots of mealtime gatherings better than one that needs to be dry-cleaned -- and it will be easier to take care of, too.

Color and Pattern

Tablecloths that are a single color may offer more flexibility for use at other times of the year than those that are specifically patterned for the holidays. But holiday-theme tablecloths may offer a distinctive backdrop for your festive tabletop.
