As we are in the heat of the summer the days seem to stretch on.  The longer days give us more opportunity to spend time with our family and friends. We can travel to that far away, dreamed about place we were yearning to go to or make our stay at home a refreshing, fun filled experience.

The opportunities are endless: a backyard barbecue, picnic in the park, a get together with family and friend you rarely see. Some people prefer to keep cool indoors while some like to spend time outdoors as long as there are plenty of drinks and refreshments handy.

The summer colors are so nice and bright it puts us in an invigorating mood. Bright red, yellow, and orange colors make for a fun presentation. Neutral colors and soft tones make the decor a relaxing and enjoyable place to be.

Classic checkered tablecloths are timeless and classy. A great choice for Memorial Day and July Fourth but also for everyday summer picnics and dinners. The flannel backing keeps the vinyl tablecloth from sliding around and vinyl is so easy to clean-all the more reason to throw a party!

Fitted vinyl tablecloths are a great choice for windy areas such as homes near the beach. It keeps the eating area neat and tidy, especially when there are children around and large families all get together. The elastic on the elasticized tablecloth keeps it from sliding so there is less mess and less cleanup.

Whether you prefer indoor or outdoor dining, enjoy these long summer days. Although it seems to stretch on, it flies by really fast. Then we’re back to homework, shorter days, and cool autumn breezes!

It’s spring and the beautiful weather lets us enjoy Mother Nature at its best. We dust off our patio tables, clean up the brush, look forward to firing up the grill and host some outdoor parties.

Many tables have an umbrella to shield us from the rain and sun. The round tablecloths we offer have an option to cut out an umbrella hole to accommodate the umbrella. If someone wants to keep the tablecloth on the table the entire time and lift the umbrella just once to slide the tablecloth on, then just an umbrella hole will do.

There are those that  have many style table cloths and like to interchange them, others like to bring the table cloths indoors when finished dining, while others do not want (or cannot) lifting the heavy umbrella pole each time they take off the tablecloth. If you are one of those, than the zipper option is right for you.

When a zipper is added it is not necessary to lift the umbrella every time you put a tablecloth on. The heavy duty zipper is sewn straight down the middle which makes it durable and easy to lay on the table. It’s great for both residential and commercial use. Easy on, easy off! So for the sake of making our lives a drop simpler the zipper option is really a great idea!

Every year at this time of year I look forward to an annual camping trip. It’s a wonderful feeling to take a break from your hectic busy life and enjoy the serenity of the forest and nature. You want to pack lightly yet you don’t want to be stuck camping without any of the essentials. Here are some quick ideas for a great camping experience:

food and tablecloth for camping

You need to be organized if you want to have a good trip. Make a camping check list before your trip so you don’t make a mistake of bringing food for the barbecue without the grill or bringing a tent without the stakes.

Figure out if this will be a backpacking trip or one that you’ll take a car or RV. Many more items can go into an automobile that in a backpack.

Think ahead. You need to know where you are going so you can plan accordingly. Bring insect repellent for areas with ticks or other insects. Bring rain gear for rainy or wet areas and warm clothing if the weather will get cooler.

camping tablecloth

A great idea would be to bring a vinyl tablecloth along for your camping trip. It’s lightweight and easy to carry around yet strong enough to fold up and reuse as you move along. Its wipe clean cloth will give you a sanitary place to prepare and eat your food. I love the tavern checks design and they come in many colors options. There are also other fabulous vinyl tablecloth prints for you to choose from.

Planning ahead and bringing along the necessities that is needed will make for a great trip. Be careful of any bears, snakes and know what to do if you encounter one. Have fun, stay safe and when you return, let us know how enjoyable your experience was.
