Halloween Fringe Tableskirt
I bought this item for the Trunk or Treat event that we have at church. It¿¿¿s super cute, but I was not impressed with the quality. First of all, the picture is kind of deceiving¿¿¿.it shows a table cloth, with a table top cover and a long, floor-length skirt. That¿¿¿s not at all what this is ¿¿¿ it is a skirt only, which I realize the actual name of the item is, in fact, ¿¿¿table ¿¿¿skirt,¿¿¿ but I thought that was synonymous with the term ¿¿¿table cloth.¿¿¿ It¿¿¿s not, and the description didn¿¿¿t seem to indicate otherwise. So unless you like rocking the bare-table-top look or unless you want to buy multiple table coverings for one table, then I wouldn¿¿¿t recommend this product to you. Moving on, my second issue is that this does not fit a standard sized folding table¿¿¿.and I¿¿¿m not even talking about going all the way around to cover the back¿¿¿.no ma¿¿¿am. This doesn¿¿¿t even cover the sides of the table, it hits the front and, maybe if I¿¿¿m being generous, half of each side. So it looks a mite tacky and unfinished. Thirdly, I take issue with the way in which you are supposed to affix this ¿¿¿skirt¿¿¿ to your table of choice. There is this sticky strip on the back that is made of, possibly, the flimsiest tape type substance ever. I would compare it to dollar store scotch tape. You peel off the backing and stick the tape stuff to the edge of your table. It will be precious (minus the unsightly bare table-top) for about 2.5 seconds, then it will promptly fall to the ground. If you¿¿¿re like me, and you¿¿¿re having a children¿¿¿s party outside, then that innovative sticky stuff will now be covered in dirt and grass, and, in my case, some of the strands of the skirt itself will now be stuck in the sticky stuff. That not-so-sticky tape stuff is apparently VERY sticky when it comes to strands of the table skirt¿¿¿it¿¿¿s just not sticky when you need it to be¿¿¿.like¿¿¿say¿¿¿oh, I don¿¿¿t know¿¿¿.in the case of maybe¿¿¿.. a table you¿¿¿re trying to decorate!? So now your table skirt tape is covered in outside debris and strands of itself and despite your (ahem, my) attempts to re-stick it, it just ain¿¿¿t happenin¿¿¿. So at this point, if you haven¿¿¿t thrown the stupid thing in the trash or lit it on fire out of frustration, if you¿¿¿re like me, you will go inside, get a hot glue gun and proceed to glue/cement the skirt to the table. Long story short: I now know that a table cloth and table skirt are, most assuredly, not the same thing. Oh and maybe hot glue the skirt to the table from the get-go, and avoid the hot, fiery mess that is the dreaded table-skirt-tape.

This item was the exact the size of a standard party table and the fringe made it a nice detail to the decorations.

Great product /easy installation
We used these to decorate our company truck (stage) for our company picnic, so easy to apply and made the truck look great.

It was perfect table fringe. Shiney and bright colors. Worked well, and durable enough to be used over and over.
