A meal is not just about the food you serve, but also about the way you present it. A well-set table can make a big difference in the atmosphere you create for your guests. One easy way to elevate your table setting? Try using a Gathre tablecloth. Made from premium, wipeable materials and available in a range of prints and colors, our tablecloths are perfect for any occasion - whether it's a casual dinner with friends, a messy meal with the kids, or a formal gathering with family. Here are some tips to get you started.

1. Choose the Right Size

The first thing you need to do is choose the right size tablecloth for your table. Start by measuring the length of your table. For ideal coverage and overhang, we recommend choosing a tablecloth that is up to about 1 foot longer than your table. Our tablecloths are sized by the length of the tablecloth - so if your table is measuring 8 feet, we would recommend a 10 ft tablecloth.

2. Coordinate with Your Decor

Our tablecloths come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, so you can easily find one that compliments your taste and decor. Whether you prefer neutral tones or bold prints, and whether it’s for an occasion or for every day, there’s one to suit your style. Keep in mind the colors of your dinnerware, napkins, and other table accessories when choosing a tablecloth to ensure a cohesive look.

3. Layer with Placemats and Napkins

Once you have your tablecloth in place, it's time to add some layers. Placemats can provide additional protection for your table and add some visual interest to the setting. Choose placemats that complement your tablecloth, or mix and match for a more eclectic look. Napkins are another great way to add some color and texture to the table. Fold them neatly and place them on top of the plates or to the side for a more relaxed vibe.

4. Add A Centerpiece

Finally, add a centerpiece to the table to complete the look. This could be a vase of fresh flowers, a candle holder, or a bowl of fruit. Make sure the centerpiece is not too tall or wide or it will obstruct views and hinder conversations. A well-placed centerpiece can create a focal point and add some ambiance to the table.

Gathre tablecloths are an easy way to elevate your table setting and impress your guests. And best of all, they’re functional. Whether a baby spills tomato sauce or a friend knocks over a wine glass, clean up is a breeze and your table stays protected. No laundry needed at the end of the night - just a few quick wipes and your table is ready for whatever meals, crafts, or messes the next day may bring.
