After years of using plastic tablecloths for outdoors, I decided to invest in this coated tablecloth to go with new picnic plates from Williams Sonoma. I wanted a simple pattern to go with the busy plate pattern, and this fit the bill beautifully. Every time I use it, I am so happy with how the table looks. It cleans up beautifully as well, with just a wet sponge on the stain. That said, this drapes like a traditional cotton cloth, and you wouldn’t know it was coated. A little pricey, but it will last a long time!
