Summer’s here so it’s time to dust off the barbeque and enjoy dining al fresco.  And now you can add that finishing touch to your patio table with one of our fabulous oilcloth tablecloths – they’re perfect for using outdoors. 

Using your wipeable tablecloth outdoors

An oilcloth tablecloth is the perfect choice for outdoors, not least because it’s shower resistant.  It’s also requires a lot less care and attention than a fabric tablecloth – you only need to wipe oilcloth with a clean, damp cloth to get rid of spills and mess so it’s a great choice for barbeques and buffets in particular.

Choosing the right design

Because there are so many lovely designs now available, an oilcloth tablecloth can be used to bring your patio area more colourful and up-to-date.  You might like to choose a floral oilcloth tablecloth to tie in with the garden theme, or go for a strong, modern statement look with a striped oilcloth tablecloth.  We also have some gorgeous blue, green, redyellow and plain oilcloths as well as neutral tones for a more subtle effect.

Keeping your oilcloth tablecloth in place

When using your oilcloth tablecloth outdoors it’s a good idea to buy some table clips to help stop it blowing in the breeze.  We sell these discreet but practical metal table clips in packs of 4 for just £3.99.

Remember your parasol hole

We can supply oilcloth tablecloths with parasol holes - you can have a plain hole cut into your chosen design or we can edge the parasol hole with a brass or silver-effect ring.  To order your oilcloth tablecloth with parasol hole, simply choose whether you want a plain, brass or silver-edged parasol hole before you add your tablecloth to your shopping basket.
