One of the ways of decorating your party table is installing a table skirt. Table skirts not only change the look of your party venue, they also beautify mismatched tables and chairs.
Table skirting ideas
There are many options that you can go with when decorating your table with a table skirt. Some of the best options include;
Gathered or shirred design: here you need to draw the fabric together at the top by sewing threads into the fabric. To create a fuller bottom you should make a tighter gather. The cool thing with this option is that it’s simple and cost effective.
Knife pleat: it’s one of the most common styles and is characterized by a series of narrow, sharp creases that have been folded in the same direction. The pleats are smooth, precise and run down the length of the fabric. Just like the gathered design, this design is also very cost effective. If you want the pleats to extend to the floor you only need to press them.
Box pleat: it’s made from a sequence of back-to-back knife pleats. The bottom of the design isn’t as full as that of gathers or knife pleats. This gives this design a neat, tailored appearance which is ideal when you are organizing a corporate party.
There are many variations that you can make. For example, you can make the French box pleat which comes with narrower pleats which are full at the bottom.
You can rent additional items from a party rental company in order to make the table more striking.
Plastic: are you strapped for cash? This is the best option to go with. You only need to buy or rent a vinyl fabric and make simple knife or gathers pleats and you are good to go. When renting or buying the plastic you should ensure that the color matches the party theme.
Swag: the design is ideal for a corporate, party, or wedding table. The swags are easy to install as you only need to attach them with overlap clips. The cool thing with the swags is that they don’t damage or flatten the table skirt pleating.
Decorating your table is important in order to give your party venue a great look. The cool thing is that you don’t have to buy the supplies—you can simply rent them from a party rental
