What do the tables look like?  I have seen a lot of cute and cheap runner ideas on Pinterest, and a solution will be much easier if you don’t have to cover the entire table.  Let me know and I’ll look for you!  It’ll work out dear 🙂

Is there a local company that you can use?  Does your venue have recommendations?

What about family members?  Do they have tablecloths you can borrow?  They might not be a perfect fit, but better than nothing, right?

I know this will sound weird but I was just in Goodwill and they have TONS of curtain panels for super cheap that you could cut up and refinish.  Also, you can get butcher paper and make it like a super cute coloring contest.  Find some glass containers and fill with markers and crayons and let ‘her rip.  What does the rest of the table look like?

I agree. Thrift shops, or even just go to a Fabric store and buy some double wide fabric, hem the edges and call it good! Or Ikea fabrics or drapery panels too!

If the cost of the fabric “linens” is too cost prohibitive, you can always go to a party store and get the packaged, plastic “tablecloths” and table skirting and Velcro them to your tables.  (They definitely won’t look as nice as the linen ones, but they will adequately and fully cover the tops and the three exposed sides of your rectangular tables. If you need to cover all four sides, you would need to purchase additional skirting to accommodate that.)

Have you Posted in classifieds? Maybe there is a bee in your area who purchased table clothes that would suit your colors and could sell them to you in time?

@nyscpa2be:  Yup go with the Walmart twin sheets. I guarantee you no one will notice!!! Can you have a friend pick them up at a Walmart store near you?

The white sheets with a brown kraft table runner would look great!

Just get a roll of Kraft or butcher paper. Butcher paper is great because it is waxed on one side and any spills would be easily wiped off.
