Xtree1 Need some advise

I have a Christmas in the Park festival coming up on December 8th and I have 8 tables to decorate.

Tables will be outdoors under a tent. It could be windy so need something that would not tend to blow away.

Tables are 8 feet long and 30 inches wide. I have red plastic table cloth to cover them. Will tape the cloth under the table tops to keep them in place.

Thought about putting a piece of ribbon down the middle long ways and one across the middle sideways and put a big bow at the intersection to make it look like a big package.

Any other ideas? Easy and cheap (not cheap looking, Hahahaha)

I rather like the idea of making the tables look like large presents. Perhaps you can gift wrap some boxes and position them on the table so it looks like smaller presents stacked upon the large one. You can always use pebbles to weight the boxes down. Also glass bowls filled with christmas baubles are nice to..... goodluck

Welcome! I like your idea of the table decorated to look like a package. You could also put some battery operated lights in the bow. Merry Christmas!
