Argh help me find dark green tablecloths?

I still need some rectangular green tablecloths for Christmas dinner, they can either be disposable (as long as not TOO cheap-looking), or "proper" ones if not too expensive.

Last year I got some linen-look paper ones from John Lewis and I went there again (need new ones as they were disposables) but they no longer have them in green! But I have lovely winter-scene table runners which are a bit hard to match, and dark/forest green seems to work best.

I've searched a bit but not many places seem to have green, and it's getting a bit late for online ordering (I've been ill, so I'm a bit behind on everything). So if anyone knows a "real" shop that has them, please let me know! Thank you...

Fabric shop, either hem the ends, or cut and don't wash before christmas day?

Amazon have some, but you'd need express delivery I suspect.

There are dark green disposable ones in Sainsbury's. there are also matching napkins

Oh, I looked in our local big Sainsbury's but they didn't have green! But I see they do have them on the website. Maybe I should try again... I could get them delivered on a grocery order, but would have to spend quite a bit extra to meet the minimum and we've already ordered most things elsewhere.

Had a look at Amazon too, but most of the ones I could see said they wouldn't arrive in time...

Fabric shop is a good idea if I get really stuck! I'm not that good with the sewing machine yet though, so I'll keep that as the emergency plan for now.

Thanks for the ideas!

Right sod it - I have ordered a delivery from Sainsbury's with them in (and some napkins too) to save any more hunting around! Good spot Woollybacks! They also have brandy snaps, which I love and they're quite hard to find now, so for those two things and the reduced hassle I don't mind paying an extra delivery charge.

Phew - one more thing off the to-do-list, thank you!
