    I use a red and white plaid tablecloth 1/2 of the year. I find it easy to add ribbons etc. for Valentines Day, and patriotic holidays. I use a cranberry one for fall and Christmas.

  2. I bought a full size white sheet set from a discount store for $9.99 and used the flat sheet as my table cloth. Worked great.

    I typically do this at my vendor booths too. Or if you have to do your own backdrop, the flat sheet works well.
    I think places like Walmart sell just the flat sheet ...not sure the price though. But you don't have miscellaneous sheet parts you don't need.

    As far as tablecloth, it's been awhile since I've done a LIVE cooking show, but it really depended on my host's environment. Sometimes, I was just using my white vinyl tablecloth. But if I was setting up my card table, I use a red tablecloth and put my black PC banner across it. The tablecloth draped down around the legs so I could hide my bags.

    I found a set of plain white tablecloths at Sam's Club. On top of that I use the table runners showing both statements--hosting and recruiting.

  5. There are different kinds of table cloths that you can choose from. For me the best are those with bright colors like red or yellow. It surely looks appealing and refreshing to the eyes.

    I've started using the picnic blanket we earned a while back as a center tablecloth when I do events. I put a white tablecloth underneath (to hide what's under my table) and the black runners on both ends. It's eye-catching.

    Where do you get the tablecloths from?

    Right now tablecloths with the Pampered Chef logo aren't available. You can purchase tablecloths at discount stores or department stores. It depends on what you're looking for. Tuesday Morning is a good place to get nice tablecloths at a discount. Though, it's hit and miss if you're looking for a specific size, shape, and color.

    I've gotten mine from Kohls, Bed Bath, and Beyond... Anywhere they are having a great sale or coupon.

    So, do u put a PC sign or banner up? I want to start doing vendor events, but being new I can't afford to buy the stuff off Merrill.

    I use the runners we could earn and then buy. However, while a PC logo can help, it's not a necessity. A display of the products will draw people, and your welcoming smile will be even better.

    I use white linen tablecloths with the black runner that we had earned. I can't wait for the September promo to earn the new tablecloth!

    Wonder if it will be ok to continue to use tablecloths with the old logo?

    It will be. One of the things I love about PC is that they have never in my memory made it mandatory to update anything. If I came across something with the old hen-on-the-chef-hat logo, I'd feel comfortable using it.
