Great Games to Play This Summer

As the summer months are quickly approaching, we're spending more and more time outside. Whether it's dinner outside or a game night with friends an oilcloth tablecloth always adds something special to the event. Don't forget how
 easy it is to clean oilcloth, just wipe clean after dinner to set up for your favorite board games. Lately, we've been into playing a domino game called chicken foot! All you need is a common set of dominos and at least two people. Click here to learn how to play chicken foot!

Better Homes and Gardens

Summer will be here in just a matter of a few months, so it's the perfect time to start thinking about how to add some new flavor to your outdoor area. Oilcloth is great for sprucing up a simple table indoors and out. You can use an oilcloth tablecloth to add something fresh to a patio set as seen in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Prints such as Paradise Lace Red, featured in the Ideas By Hand section of the magazine, are great for all seasons. Prints like Roses in Squares, Mums and Tropic are great for the summertime!
