Whether you choose a white tablecloth or one in a colorful pattern or solid, you’ll instantly change and elevate the look of your table and room. Whether you want to cover a worn table top, or protect a beautiful one, fabric tablecloths add a touch of elegance to any occasion. While solid white is the most formal choice, explore the many options of tone-on-tone color and seasonal patterns available for adding dimension to your décor. Belk’s collection of square, rectangle and round tablecloths includes designs from top brands including Lenox®, Waterford, Avanti, Elrene and Arlee Home Fashions Inc.™ among others.
Fabric tablecloths make such a visual statement, it’s easy to forget the other benefits they provide. A tablecloth protects your table top from spills, stains, scratches and dripping candle wax. It muffles the clinks of flatware on dishes during your meal, making conversation more enjoyable. While more casual placemats clearly mark the space allowed for each diner, a tablecloth enables you to comfortably accommodate more people or fewer at the table, as needed.
When measuring for a round tablecloth, take the diameter of your table, and add twice the drop you want to see. This will give you the width of the tablecloth to purchase.
While white tablecloths and matching napkins are the most formal approach, consider selecting contrasting, coordinating colors for added dimension and flair. A seasonal fabric tablecloth with solid, coordinating napkins makes a festive splash.
