Table skirting can add decorating pizazz to any party or social function. Relatively inexpensive, skirting is used instead of table linen and is available in a wide variety of colours and materials. From plastic to lace, to metallic to paper, table skirting can enhance a theme or carry out a colour scheme. Attached around the edges of the table and draped to the floor, table skirting can be a cost-effective way to decorate for banquets or other social events.

Plastic Skirting

Plastic table skirting is available in just about any colour and comes in lengths of around 14 feet. Roughly 30 inches tall, the skirting is attached to the edges of banquet tables with ordinary tape.

Metallic Skirting

For a more festive appearance, metallic fringe skirting can be found in a variety of bright colours.

Tissue Skirting

Tissue fringe skirting that trims the edge of the table but does not extend to the floor can be a less expensive alternative.

Raffia Skirting

Table skirting that is made of raffia or artificial grasslike material can add an element of fun to luaus and events with a more tropical theme.

Decorative Wrap Skirting

A slightly more expensive example of table skirting is decorative wrap skirting. This skirting is generally constructed of theme-printed, card stock weight paper. At around £19 per 25-foot roll, this product offers a theme or holiday-specific alternative to traditional plastic skirting.


The price of table skirting will depend on the type of skirting that is selected. Basic plastic skirting will generally cost around £4 for a 14-foot length. Raffia and metallic fringe skirting may cost as much as £13 for a 9-foot length.
