Table skirting, the tablecloth’s stately and professional cousin, brings elegance and a consistent color backdrop to any event. While tablecloths vary in length, table skirting is usually 29 inches, which reaches from a standard table top to the floor. Decoratively speaking, table skirting is like a tablecloth in that it usually covers the top of the table in addition to all sides. Though a skirt can be attached just to the perimeter of a table, leaving the top exposed, most decorative fabric ones cover the entire table. Whether it covers the entire table or just the perimeter, it can be both a decorative and practical accent to furniture. The two most common types of table skirts are pleated and shirred. They come in a variety of sizes, colors and fabric choices.
Table skirting is the material that is used on your table to make it look complete and beautiful. In addition to decorative uses, table skirting may be used to dress up folding tables at events such as craft shows and trade conventions. Those made for folding tables reach around the entire perimeter of the table, allowing items to be safely and invisibly stored away underneath. At the same time, accessories such as signs and visual enhancements can be attached to and hung from the skirt.
