I really think you should stretch your budget to include cloth tablecloths.  Can you rent them from a local company?  Are you renting tables?

Smarty Had a Party has Linen- like tablecloths but honestly, you can buy white tablecloths used off Craigslist for the same price.

What size tables will you be using and how many will you have?

You could use ribbon, but it will likely add up in cost too.

I think if you have to plastic, there isn’t a good way to dress them up other then your centerpieces? Have you explored other options, buying them used will be way cheaper then renting.

Personally, I wouldn’t use plastic. I bought my white able cloths for $7/each and sold them on here for $3.50. I got mine on linentablecloth.com and they were great.

We bought white tablecloths and used them for the bridal shower and we’re going to use them for the wedding. Afterwards, I plan on trying to sell them. Maybe you can do the same? If you buy some and can sell them, you might wind up losing only as much money as plastic ones would have cost!

How many do you need, and how much do you have to spend? I’m sure we could do some online shopping around for you and try to find some! (And if you need 8 or less, I could sell you mine!)

I did a wedding where the groom refused linen as it was in a small town, 2nd wedding for him, and he wouldn’t budge.  Since I refused to use plastic as it never stays in place, drinks stick to it and it can look messy I suggested to just wrap the old splintered wooden tables with kraft paper.  It gave a neutral background and cleaned up the tables.
