I avoid Target at all costs. Not because I don’t love it – because I do – I just can’t seem to walk out without additional items I forgot that I “needed”!

One thing I’m a sucker for at Target is tablecloths. Not your everyday tablecloths – but their outdoor line. They usually show up toward the end of April and it’s hard to find once their back-to-school stuff hits the shelves. They’re nestled in the back of the store in between the bocce ball set and the picnic ware. There’s usually a couple designs to choose from and they’re made of polyester – easy to clean and even easier to throw in the dryer to get wrinkles out.

Every year, I treat myself to their new line and buy two tablecloths with the same print; I’ve done this for several years and I’ve accumulated quite the collection. (we often entertain with two long tables which is why I buy 2 of each print) And before you think I’m crazy – I use them all the time. In fact, on the last day of school I was gearing up for the party we were hosting and I went to my beautiful linens closet and pulled out two tablecloths and thought to myself, I love all of them.

Each one has been used and loved. Every birthday party I throw I walk to the closet and look through to see which tablecloth I can decorate around. Often times I’m layering tablecloth on tablecloth, not to mention the solid red ones I have are used the most. I’m convinced red is the universal party color!

Have I mentioned that we host a lot of gatherings and parties?? Here’s just a few examples of how I’ve used them:

Because they’re polyester they look just like they did the day I bought them. They’re perfect for fun parties – however, you can probably give them a miss for your fancy holiday dinners!

I tell you all of this because they’re currently in stores and I just picked up this years print. In the past I’ve stayed pretty consistent with basic geometric shapes and this year it is not quite as universal, but I really loved them. It just means I need to start throwing Memorial day and 4th of July parties.

Everything is branded “Peanuts” this year for their outdoor line – but I assure you there are no characters on the actual fabric.

There’s another print that I have my eye on, and only if it’s around when they start marking everything half off will it end up in my closet. Fingers crossed.
