A few forums ago I asked where I could order cheap tablecloths for my wedding. I was quoted by a rental company in my state $10/tablecloth and $0.60/linen napkin. I will have 20 rectangular tables and will need 200 napkins. That would mean I’d have to pay $320 for renting JUST the tablecloths and napkins, not even the runners! Plus they would charge me $35 for shipping. I personally thought that was crazy for rentals!
A few few people recommended tableclothfactory.com in my forum and they came through!! I bought 20 tablecloths, 20 runners, and 200 napkins for $220, free shipping!! They arrived in a week and they are exactly what I wanted!! I saved over $100 and can reuse or resell after the wedding! I will have to do some washing/ironing but it’s definitely work saving money!
The photos are of my inspiration for my table colors, and the photo is actually taken in my reception venue space. I’ve attached the items I purchased from tableclothfactory.com for reference. I highly recommend them!!
I purchased mine on efavormart.com and I'm so glad I decided to buy and not rent. I also saved a bunch of money and can sell them again next year. My community hosts a "wedding flea market" where previous brides sell their used decor. I'm really hoping I'll be able to sell some of them there.
Yes, tableclothfactory.com is mentioned less often than some, but their prices to purchase are quite reasonable. And the website is very clear about the materials they are made from, no mistake. And sizes, for each shape . They do also have plastic coated for outdoor use 1 time. I particularly like some of the art deco, and satin stripe ones that they have for accents. This is a good resource to mention . 🙂

If this isn't something you have done before, and you have access to a dryer, soak a couple of small towels and put them in the dryer with several tablecloths, first to tumble air dry for a few minutes to dampen the tablecloths. Then dry on low. Take them out and immediately steam or iron if necessary. Often they will have tumbled dry nearly wri kle free. Buy a few pipe foam insulation tubes , 6 feet, or longer taped together. Roll wrinkle free tablecloths on the tubes, the top side of the tablecloths inward. Roll one, tie loosely with white string or yarn. Then roll another, top side inward. And another. For big tables, it is pretty weighty by 4 or five so start another roll. Store lyi g down flat. At the event, put on a table, clip the first strings and unroll with top side up. Go table to table. Whether you do it or venue, very fast for set up. Folding and shaking out folds is a time waster.
