Easy Steps for Boxing a Tablecloth
The right table linens can add class to your special event. But if the linens don’t fit the table precisely, your guests might trip over the excess cloth. This problem is easily averted by boxing the table. Table linens are typically boxed when they are used on buffet or drink tables, rather than the guests’ tables, since it isn’t possible to box all of the corners. When done correctly, boxed table linens present a beautiful look for the three sides of the table that will be visible to guests.
Watch the accompanying video to see a step-by-step demonstration of the proper technique. This etiquette expert shows viewers how to carefully lift the corner of the table linen, bring it toward the center of the table, clear out the creases and lumps, and fold it over the outer edge of the table to create a beautifully boxed corner.
