I am decorating for my son's wedding. He is having his buffet tables and dance floor in a very large shelter area. (60 x30) It is made of a metal roof and lots of poles. The view from one side is not the best (playground equipment). I wanted to block that view, yet let in air circulation, but on a budget. This is what I have decided to do. I am ordering rolls of high quality plastic tablecloths. I will cut the plastic in 6 inch wide strips by 8 feet long and attach them to the roof line. This will look like flowing ribbons. The cost to cover the 60 ft span? $32.00 dollars!

What kind of paint can I use on a vinyl tablecloth that, when I wipe, it won't smear, or take off the paint?

If you want to use rubber stamps, I would suggest Stayz On permanent ink. If you want to paint it, your best bet would be to buy clear vinyl to go over the top (you can stitch the edges of the tablecloth and the vinyl together). Fabric stores sell clear vinyl, or, for a cheaper option, buy a clear shower curtain and cut to size.

We cut ours in long strips and tied them as you would any bow. A few years back I went to a party supply store and bought a roll of red plastic tablecloth like the ones used on banquet tables and decorated the porch posts and all in bows for Christmas. Weatherproof and reusable.
