It's really windy where we live so I knew I needed to find a solution to keep our tablecloths in place. After a stop at the auto supply store for alligator clips and the sporting goods store for fishing weights, I got out my jewelry making supplies and fashioned some tablecloth weights. Besides the clip and the weight, I used a head pin (like the ones you use to make dangly earrings) and two beads. They worked great! I need to make another set for our bistro table.
I made the tablecloth, too, from some heavy weight cotton I got at JoAnn's for half off.
