Linens....

I want chocolate brown linens.

My rental co. doesn't carry them. Neither does the other one in the area.

So, I'm thinking I will buy these from Ikea and sew 2 twin flat sheets together, and cover all the tables with them. I've gotta do some math, and make sure they will go all the way to the floor. I'll keep you posted.

The website says $6.50 each, but I thought they were $4.50 in the store. I'll have to check it out.

I did this about a month ago for table cloths for an Easter party we had in our neighborhood, they came out great!

While these aren't chocolate brown, they will do. Maybe I'll do brown napkins to accent.

..... really no one's gonna remember if my tablecloths were light brown or dark brown, so I'm not sure why I care so much.....

That is a great idea if they are cost effective - what size and kind of tables do you have?

I'll have 7 tables end-to-end on either side of the room. They are 8' tables, 30" wide and 30" off the floor.
