Enhance your business by offering your clients a variety of table skirting types and styles

Table skirts dress up a table for many occasions, from a formal event to a trade show. There are many table skirting types and styles to choose from. Table skirts can be as basic as plain white cloth, or as extravagant as an embroidered box style. The style you settle on depends on a variety of factors.

The main factor determining the type of table skirt you use is your budget. Once you know how much you or your client is able to spend, you can better choose the table skirt for your needs. Even if you have a small budget, you can still find a table skirt that fits the bill; you may just have to compromise by choosing a less expensive fabric or style. When shopping for table skirts remember the following:

1. You might consider leasing table skirting for elegant functions such as weddings and formal receptions, since certain high-end styles are ordered less frequently.

2. Add a little flair to your elegantly dressed tables by ordering valances or scalloped drapes.

3. Table forms are one-piece tablecloth skirts that stretch over tables and provide a chic, modern look for any contemporary table.

Go basic with traditional table skirting

Basic skirting pleat styles include box, shirred, and regency. These styles are used mainly in the food industry. You may be interested in the types of table skirts that are durable and easy to care for, especially for a restaurant.

Buy table skirts for trade shows

If you need a trade show table skirt that screams out your business name, then a custom-printed table skirt is definitely the answer. These skirts can be purchased through promotional companies and linen stores, and you can add your logo or tag line. Just make sure that the color of your table skirt stands out among the many others that will be lining the tables around you.
