Purple Tablecloth Roll
Convenient & good value
If you are covering a long serving table, these rolls are the way to go. The plastic is durable, not see-through. It was strong enough to handle boiling hot water that spilled from the chaffing dishes (which had sterno flames).
Check your dimensions for the width of the tables (especially if you are renting a banquet room/hall, the 8 ft tables have different dimensions for width. For my 3x 8 tables at our event, the edge covered to the ends only- no drop off the sides. If that bugs you then get table skirts to cover under the table, if you aren't planing to store anything uder the tables then it doesn't really matter.
Save time tip: pre-cut them at home to the dimensions you need, so that on party day, you just unroll your precut portion, unfold and then you are done.
If you are diligent about wiping down the table, you could probably reuse this table cloth. but if you are in a rush to clean up, this is very convenient to just roll up and out goes the dropped food, spills and confetti in a snap.

Perfect for our food tables in our Mardi Gras society's room.
My husband's Mardi Gras Society has individual rooms for its members
refreshments. Our job is to decorate the buffet as well as the room itself.
Getting all the table supplies from Oriental Trader insures they all match.

does the job
The rolls are made well, however just note that they arrive on the roll folded. Slight crease in the center throughout. But, good product for the price

This like the other colors I have ordered comes on a smaller roll, since the 40" is folded in half. Which is great for shipping and storage however not so great when rolling out to cover tables as all of them have a crease down the middle. Other than that, the color was great and quality is thick. Very easy to use and not worry about things showing through under the color.

The size of roll makes the tablecloth easy to handle (it's folded in half on the roll) - Read the dimensions because it is not the widest tablecloth out there but I needed to make my own sizes anyway so it was perfect. Not too thin or too see-thru.

Folded in 1/2
I ordered this for a wedding reception so that I would not have fold creases. However, the roll came folded in 1/2 so there will be a crease right down the middle of the table. Description does not say this and thought others should know this, but also think the description should state this is how they are delivered.

The tablecloth said 40" wide but came 20" wide and will not cover the width of the table. Oriental Trading emailed us a return label right away. They said they would change the description.
