    Mrs. Reid...yessssssssss they do!! I'm not doing a runner. I'm doing something called a "round" (pic below) and I know for the kind of pattern I want I will need a silver table cloth. I probably will end up with white though....UGH!!! I will have some kind of red and silver or just a red based pattern.

    IKR, you every thought about buying instead of renting. It sometimes come out cheaper.

    Example: www.efavormart.com/linen-tablecloths-linen-napkins.aspx

    I found a place on Ebay that makes them in China. It is called, Complete Wedding Supply. The email addie is *******@***********.***. I bought rectangular floor lenght for half the price of renting skirting or table cloths. They are lovely, stain and wrinkle resistant.

    I'm going through the same thing but the ladies help last night with efavormart.com, smartyhada party.com, and ebay. I've seen some great deals. I can buy now and sell them later!

    Ikr definitely look into buying, it is probably cheaper. but definitely do not use efavormart. I have been through hell with them and they have horrible customer service. And if you Google them you come up with thousands of complaints. Try table cloth factory or another online retailer.

    You should also consider an overlay. They're quite a bit cheaper than tablecloths, but if you get one that covers the whole table, you'll still get the look you want. I bought mine at www.efavormart.com

    Ha! Now I see Melissa's post not to buy from them. My experience was fine. My experience on eBay was awful- the color was all wrong, and I couldn't return them. I didn't have to return anything to efavormart, so I don't know about them.

    @first lady- $20?!?!?! why rent when you can buy for less then that and then re-sell and get some of your money back!

    so far i've looked at all the websites people have posted (the ebay one, efavormart, tableclothsfactory, smarty had a party, linentableclothes) and they are all really within like a $1 of each other. at least for plain black/white ones. so really it would come down to the cheapest shipping or if you had a coupon code....

    I just got some linen like tablecloths from smartyhadaparty. My parents didn't want the hassle of selling back tablecloths (or dry cleaning the ones offered by the church that weren't even all the same color). The ones we got are pretty nice. They are soft to the touch, but disposable! I don't know if you'd be able to find silver, though.

    Jen...I ordered a bunch of stuff from them and the products were fine but once a company treats their customers the way they did I refuse to use them again and would not want anyone to have to deal with that.

    I'd look around! My florist is doing all my linens and overlays for roughly about $20 a table....and I don't have to worry about reselling or bothering someone to setup the day of...everyone can relax and enjoy the day! Look for the florists that are NOT widely advertized...those are the ones who will charge you $$$$$$$ simply bc thay can.
