Dinner Party Table Setting

Homemade Tablecloth

When you're having a dinner party it's very important to keep your guests' feelings in mind. You want them to feel comfortable and welcomed so that conversation will be at ease. This should start at the table.

If you have a glass-top table, make sure to cover it - you don't want to give guests something to talk about if if some people's skirts or dresses are shorter than others.

All you need is a piece of remnant fabric that you may have at your house, no-sew fusible fabric tape, a damp cloth and an iron. Use the fusible tape to sew up a quick hem and voila, you have a tablecloth!
