Would it really look bad if you just let it puddle it on the floor?  Or! what if you do like a “pick up skirt” on the table.  I can’t find a pic on google, but u know those dresses that have the pick up skirt.  Then afterwards just let it back out to sell them.

I’m wondering whether you could do something like this, using the extra material to provide extra draping?

Is the table in your picture the samr size? If it is,they don’t really look too big to me.

I actually have a similar problem,but its because the person at the venue told me the wrong table sizes. Mine are 12″ too long and I have the same concerns. Mine are round and are beautiful,but I’ve recently found a vendor who rents the size I need for a price much cheaper than anywhere else. Between trying to find someone to hem/cut them to fit and that expense,I think I’ll save myself the grief and rent. I’m actually getting ready to list them on the classifieds.

One vendor actually suggested doing a pinned up or clipped from underneath pickup too…..every 12 inches. I considered it as well as letting them puddle or tuck them under,and while it would look  great before people sat down,how long would they stay that way?

Is it weird that my first thought was “bubble skirt! make them look like a bubble skirt!”

I have no idea how you would do that… it would probably mean running a strong string through the entire (existing) hem, then drawing it tight once they’re on the tables and somehow affixing it to the center of the bottom of the tabletop (like, if the table were a kid’s play fort, it’d be the ceiling, if that makes sense) and then doing a lot of arranging. It’d be a bit of work … actually it’s kind of a crazy idea.
