One of the best places to really make a statement with your booth design is with your table coverings. Table covers can draw the eye of shoppers and be used to highlight your products simultaneously.
I’ve linked below to some examples of excellent table covers. You can buy them, but it’s even better if you can make them yourself and have them be unique. You’ll want to avoid busy patterns on table tops so they don’t drown our your product, but a bright, fun table skirt with a solid cover makes for a great display!
This DIY table cover from ruffled rags is really adorable and quite simple to do. Take strips of contrasting cloth to do the strips. Another benefit to this cover is if it gets tattered a bit from wear and tear, who will really notice? This I imagine in the right colors would be cute, eye catching and pretty low maintenance. No ironing, starching, excessive washing etc.
This one comes from a birthday party site, but that doesn’t make the idea less valid. I love the three tiered skirt. Imagine doing this on just your front and center table – how pretty and if you can sew simple ruffles, probably not all that difficult to do.
Grab some bulk fabric in 3 shades that look good together and coordinate well with your items. Fabric.com often has good sales online for bulk fabrics.
This quilted reversible table cover from quilted cupcake design is absolutely adorable. The directions are simple and you could use fabric scraps or even purchase discount fabrics or closeouts to create something similar. I love this idea
Here is another cute DIY idea with doilies sewn onto a linen table cloth. I imagine this would be cute with different colored fabrics as well. Very eye catching.
This adorable vintage Paris table cover and others like it are very inexpensive on AliExpress.com They sell many vintage table cloths and I think these would be perfect for anyone who designs vintage inspired items or does paper crafts. Put this on top of a pretty table skirt, or even use it as a backdrop behind a solid table cover. Super pretty and eye catching.
Check out this really awesome drop cloth that these ladies painted. Canvas drop cloths are inexpensive and can be totally customized. Paint or iron on your logo, a pattern, or whatever your heart desires.
You might also want to consider dying fabrics. Tie dye or scrunch dying cotton in colors of your choice. If you keep the patterning subtle you won’t have to worry about detracting from your products, but will still have a very vibrant table covering that is sure to get noticed.
Be sure you use only natural fabrics when dying. 100% cotton fabric works best. Synthetic fibers will not work.
