(Closed) Serpentine tables?

I used to work at a wedding venue where we used serpentines for the buffet, cake table, card table etc. and did not have the special table cloths for them. We would use the normal round table cloths and fold them in half and lay it across the serpentine. Then you gather up the fabric to fit the curve of the table, so it is more spread out along the outer, less curved side and more gathered/bunched up along the small, inside curve. Then we would put a square overlay on a diagonal on top. It looked fine, but the only issue is that you will have gathers going across the top of the table, so it won’t be completely flat. So I don’t know if that would work for a head table where you are going to have glasses, cutlery etc. on the table cloth,  but it worked fine for the buffet and cake table where you are placing larger things on the table. Hope that makes sense!

I’m using this type of table and I swear I pinned an article on how to use regular linens to cover them…I’ll try to find it when i’m on a bigger screen!
