Tableskirts are a fantastic way to finish off your tablecovering. Most tablecovers don't reach the floor so a tableskirt is necessary to add length or to add more detail to your table. Tableskirts can be used many different ways. Here are some ideas... The most common way is to first lay the tablecover down evenly. Then apply the tableskirt around the table over the top of the tablecover. Most disposeable tableskirts have adhesive so they will easily stick to your tablecover. If there is no adhesive you can use staples or tableclips. Another idea is to apply the tableskirt around the table first. Then lay the tablecover over the top so the tablecover overlaps the tableskirt. This is the best idea to use when you are using different colors or styles of tablecover and tableskirt. For example a printed tablecover with a solid colored tableskirt.
