It’s Summer and we tend to want to take it easy-relaxing on the beach, grilling our dinner instead of making elaborate meals, and getting together for picnics with easy to prepare foods. People love using vinyl tablecloths especially this time of year since they are so easy to maintain. The are also an abundance of colors and styles so that you can match the decor as you wish. Turquoise is a great summer color for a party on the beach or pool party and hot pink is lovely for a baby girl shower.

There are a couple of ways to maintain a vinyl tablecloth in order to keep them around longer. While its nice to know that it is easy to wipe up spills on vinyl, try to wipe up a spill promptly. This will prevent soaking up the tablecloth and going to the flannel backing on the other side. Fold up and put away the tablecloth when not in use to prevent the color fading in the hot sun or preventing the tablecloth from getting soaked from a strong rain. This will also prevent the tablecloth from getting mold on it from excess moisture.

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!
