Whenever I have a party I pull out the old trusty Trestle Tables, however I was missing some really nice table covers that were made to fit these.
I wanted something that looked a little more chic and smart.
So Spotlight were having a huge Easter Sale - 40% off almost everything.
I ended up purchasing 3 sets of Queen Flat sheets and a heavily discounted 5 metre pack of Red Poplin for $14.00, I think it was left over from Christmas.
The sheets only cost $7.00 each after all the discounts.
I think that White, Red and Black would be colours that I could use for all different kinds of parties.
So here's how they look.
Race Car Party
Red Tablecloth, covered with a chequered piece of fabric
The tables can be dressed up to suit all different kinds of parties by simply adding a piece of fabric etc down the middle of the table.
Racing Car Party
The fabrics are a little creased, but obviously on the day they would be nice and ironed.
This is a separate piece of fabric that I pinned around the table onto the red tablecloth
makes a great theme for"
This was a striped fabric I purchased on sale from Spotlight on sale for about $3.99 per metre.
Circus Theme party table cloth.
Circus/carnival theme party table tablecloth
This table cloth setting is also perfect for a circus party.
This fabric was given to me, they are 2 sets of curtains so I have 4 of these to use for parties.
Spotty Circus/Carnival Table
Another great money saving way to decorate tables is to use wrapping paper.
This is a pinstriped red wrapping paper that I picked up at Christmas from the Reject Shop. Also I know that Ikea had the same sort of paper in, but they always sell out.
Candy Stripe circus carnival party tablecloth
80's or Glitzy party a basic red tablecloth can be dressed up using dance sequin fabric, very sparkly.
DIY Ruffled Tablecloth
So here is the white ruffled tablecloth that I made for a bargain price of $15.00, I know that the shops are selling these for $150.00 I used 2 Queen size flat sheets for this project and a lot of time for making the ruffles and edging them.
