Cheap & Easy Party Table Ruffle

Cheap – Ruffle table skirt

This is such a great trick to decorate a party table!  All you need to do is buy a cheap roll of plastic table cloth (we also used matching rectangle and round plastic tablecloths but you could just use the same roll).

Cheap & Easy but looks so GOOD!

First, we covered the table with the rectangle table cloth then ran some double sided tape around the edge. Then it’s just a matter of folding the plastic roll to the correct length to make a ruffle and gathering and sticking as you go. So easy, cheap & effective!!!

I also used this technique to cover Mason’s highchair, added some balloons and there was the perfect setting for his first taste of cake 🙂

  1. Takes a lot of double sided tape, very expense! Cute, but get good quality plastic tableclothes.

    1. Not sure where you live but we got some great double sided tape at BigW – we only used one third of the roll to do three large tables.
      I also just found some great plastic tablecloth rolls at The Reject Shop for $8 each! It’s nice an thick too :). These shops are within Austraila.

      1. Thank you for responding. I figured out a way that I think might work better for me since I am working at this alone. I found it to be more efficient to purchase a table skirt and tape the bottom of the skirt to the base table cloth at the point that you want the ruffle to drop. Then tape the tailored end of the table skirt to the top edge of the table. To make the ruffles more dimensional, add tissue paper in the fold of the ruffle. Next I puddled the base cloth at the floor and VOILA!

        Thank you for this wonderful idea.
