When setting up an outdoor table, one detail we often encounter is ensuring that the tablecloth doesn’t whip around in the wind. Earlier in the week, we took a look at the fitted tablecloth as one possible solution. Here are four examples of one other idea, the tablecloth weight:

1 From Martha Stewart, this is a homemade corner tassel crafted from fishing weights and raffia.
2 One more weight made up of a small, hanging flower arrangement clipped to the tablecloth.
3 Knotted weights in a nautical style, much like this doorstop.
4 If you use a long, relatively heavy burlap tablecloth for outdoor dining, it’s less likely to go anywhere than a light cotton one.
