Is it a problem when the sun shines on it? Does it get a bit glary if it catches the sunlight?

Just wondering.

Of course not much hope of sun.

But just thinking of buying a new table.

I actually have 2 blush the cloth one goes on first as a squishy layer and then the wipe clean plastic one (with pretty strawberries on) goes over the top.

I am turning into my mother blush She takes a cloth away when they go on holiday to France, just to spread over the wooden picnic tables in the service areas on the journey there and back.

Oh the shame...

biscuits - we used one of our towels last year to do the same. Not sure if that makes us scummy or sad!

Lucy, I can't open your link.

So are you lot saying that camping with table cloths is what we should all be doing? <astonished>

pmsl @ sun grin (whats that?)

the good thing about our aluminium table is that the rain falls straight through the gaps wink between the slats.

Am pmsl at the talk and links of flowery tablecloths - you all sound like my mother grin
She uses these wacky clip thingys too to make sure her tablecloth doesn't blow away - perish the thought shock

Surely the beer bottles hold the cloth down?

Lucycat Sun 19-Jul-09 23:06:40

wine box holds it down - we do as the French do. No flowers tho' grin

Tell me you don't hang bunting round the edge too? wink

Aha but I want wacky clip things for our tablecloth at home to help stop DS pulling it off the table...
