Tired of the picnic tablecloth blowing over the potato salad?

Easy-Breezy-Tip-Country-Design-Style #picnictablecloth #picnictip #outdoordiningUsing four binder clips and four 10 inch pieces of wired ribbon fixes the problem.

I find this works better that the weighted clips because it pulls the tablecloth snug up under the table edge.

Continue doing each of the four corners pulling the tablecloth snug.

Since I tend to like simple, I like the ribbons at each corner.  The ribbons could be longer to reach the floor.

Very dramatic!
