Rated 5 out of 5 by jannygirl What a great look!
Placed this over the wooden top table that Ballard also sells. No need for a felt table pad, it looked great without one. It looks very sharp, would be great for a party or reception for an upscale look. The burlap does smell, as others have noted, I aired mine outside for two days, sprayed heavily with Febreze and ironed with steam due to needing it ready quickly, if you can, order ahead of time to allow it to air out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by McKsMom Made well, lined and sturdy
Item is extremely difficult to manage as it is delivered folded and the creases are hard to get out. Because of its large size, washing and ironing is very difficult. Dry cleaning is very expensive ??? It looks great except for the deep wrinkles, the color is nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Piscesmother The tablecloth is a lovely, casual cloth that I used to decorate at Christmas.
The cloth was thick and of good quality. I used it at Christmas for a decorative table. I would recommend it to others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PamelaC Awesome but not perfect
I love it but NOT that you have to dry-clean it! There was a couple spots that the fringe was sewed in the seam and luckily I sew and was able to fix it. Not looking forward to the dry-cleaning bill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TMTK Great Purchase! Round Burlap Tablecloth
I have already used it twice for entertaining--once on my 48" round kitchen table, and then on a 48" round table out on my back porch for a liquor table during a party. I put together a nice candle centerpiece and voila...rustic and elegant at the same time!
A great purchase, as it looks great and is functional, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FleurDeLies Better than expected !!!
The only down side is the chemical odor from the fabric which takes a month or so to start diminishing. Perfect size, perfect looking. Very Frenchie country looking .

This cloth provided the finishing touch to our poolside Fall Brunch. We can see it being used on many occasions.

Nicely constructed, lined tablecloth. Goes well with the Fall decor I set out every year. Even though my entry is formal, this tablecloth displays well in either formal or casual settings. (Do let it air out before placing on your table, as instructed, to allow the burlap fabric time to 'cure'.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by ggma A few minor drawbacks but has good quality
Once ironed it looked great but the fabric was course and not easy to get all the wrinkles out. Also the fabric had a very unpleasant smell which, for a table cloth, detracts from its appeal. Since I am using for a decorative piece, it fit my needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wrkoutgrl I like it!
Great table cloth but as expected, it arrived in serious need of ironing. My suggestion is to set up your ironing board next to the table on which it will go and use the table to help hold the cloth while ironing. Also, it has a rather "musty" burlap smell but it is tolerable. Setting an air freshener nearby helps but hopefully it will fade with time. Overall, very cool table cloth!

The tablecloth looks great. I followed the advice of other reviewers and let it air out in the garage for a few days. I used my iron to steam out the wrinkles and now it looks perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kate Who knew burlap could look so elegant?!
I ordered this cloth in ivory burlap (along with the party table and glass topper) for my smallish dining room. We're in our current space for only a couple of years and I didn't want to break the bank on a dining set that may not work in our next home. This was the perfect solution!
It gives the room a look and feel of elegance, but without being stuffy. And the quality of this cloth is superb. The full lining gives it a nice weight and allows it to hang just perfectly. I'm very pleased with this purchase!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Luv2dekr8 The burlap quality is good the fringe makes the cloth appear too short.
I should have ordered the cloth with the cording instead of the fringed edge. Because the fringe is thin, it makes the cloth look short as if it does not touch the floor. I returned it.

Tablecloth is beautiful & works perfectly, making an old dining table look like a chic library table. Burlap has some "odor" when first opened - which I expected - so I aired this out on my porch for a few days & that is resolved. Most of my buys from Ballard are for design clients - this one was for me to enjoy in my own home!

Rated 2 out of 5 by jeagle pretty...but it shrinks-even if you coldwater handwash it
I like the tablecloth, but the first time I put it out, someone spilled on it...it would have stained if I waited to get it to the dry-cleaners...so I hand-washed it in cold water...air-dried it...And...It shrunk anyways!!!...so disappointed!!!...not really worth the $100+ dollars that I spent on it...only buy it if y plan on NOT using it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PDM1 Remarkable quality
I was so impressed when I received the tablecloth - the quality of the fabric (burlap) was impressive. Unfortunately I had to return it as my table didn't fit in my new place. Highly recommend this tablecloth. Very elegant.

It was the only table covering I found of that size 48" that goes down to the floor. The fabric is real burlap with a loose weave. I just wanted it to be a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by highlowshopper A great addition to your tablescape
I had been wanting this tablecloth for quite some time. Hosting an autumn dinner was the perfect reason, to purchase it. I am thrilled that I did. My steamer did a great job of removing the packing wrinkles. It does give off that burlap odor, which seems to fade over time. If this is an item, that you have been considering, I think you will be pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DecoratorInMyDreams Not just for parties
The quality of the twill tablecloth is good enough to be a permanent cover on my 48" round table. It has good "hand", heavy which provides a generous graceful fit. It exceeded my expectations. Ballard will provide fabric samples, so if you are unsure of the color you want, be sure to get them. My computer screen distorts colors and doesn't look at all like the samples.

This is a well made cloth with a great lining that helps it keep it shape----true burlap so the look is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by maryl I love it.
It took quite a bit of steaming to get all the wrinkles out, as well as some time for the burlap odor to fade, but it looks great and I'm very pleased. An excellent value.
