Skirting Clips For Tables

Key Features

1. 50 per pack
2. Fits 1/2-3/4" edges
3. Velcro for attaching to skirt

Reviews reveal high quality, good price and product effectiveness. Although these are designed for a snug fit on table edges of around 1/2 to 3/4", it is stated that realistically, they can be stretched wider to a full 1 inch, but this may place them at risk of breakage. It also warns tat they greater extent to which they're stretched can put plastic or paper tablecloths at risk of tearing.  

There are several other versions of different sizes available for thicker edges, with clips that can easily stretch up to 2". These kinds of clips also come in several different colors and you can choose from plastic or steel. These are perfect for weddings or any function.

A pack of 50 means you'll have more than enough to secure your tablecloth and skirting.

Heavy Bird Weights Made From Cast Iron

If your looking for a heavy tablecloth weight, these cast iron birds may be the perfect choice.

These are antique white cast iron birds that will let you prevent slipping and unwanted movement whilst maintaining an attractive appearance. Many other versions have a cheap or plastic appearance and appear as though they may lack the size and weight to actually be effective in securing a tablecloth. However, these cast iron birds are 2" long, and will definitely be capable of standing up to gusty conditions during a picnic and could also be great for outdoor entertaining at home. Their pleasant appearance means you can also use them on dining tables without creating a tacky look.

Cute Insect Tablecloth Weights

These may be the cutest tablecloth weights I've ever seen. If you're a fan of ladybugs, then there is a four pack of them available. But I much prefer this "mixed bug" set. I think they're intended for outdoor use, but in my opinion they're cute enough for indoor use as well. It's funny, usually I dislike all things 'creepy crawly', but I love these insect weights.

The size of each bug is approximately 3.5 x 2.5".

Are they heavy enough?

They have a shipping weight of approximately 6.4 ounces. I'm guessing it's therefore logical to assume that each bug has a weight of around 1.5 ounces? Some people who've purchased these state that they're heavy enough. Whereas another reviewer stated that they had to buy a second pair as these are not heavy enough for larger tables. It seems as though most customers rated these as effective at resiting the force of wind gusts. Obviously they're not going to keep it secured during a hurricane, but they'll do the job in normal conditions.

Either way, I love them! I'm trying to think of other uses for them, such as hanging them off curtains or perhaps my rear view mirror =)
