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!

Studies show how important it is to take a break from our workload. It gives us time to rejuvenate and helps you concentrate and be much more productive throughout the day. Federal law does not require meal or rest breaks, but many states do. The same principles apply to rest breaks: there’s no federal requirement, but many states do mandate such breaks. The state laws that do exist tend to specify a 10-minute break that accrues every four hours or every eight hours, or something in-between.
