I like oilcloth. It's very durable, you can buy it by the yard at many places including online.

Table covers

Standard tables made from wood and or wood with pipe frames are usually 30 inches wide and predominately 96 inches long. You'll need a tablecloth with a little overhang. Oilcloth works well, heavy duty enough that you may well get tired of the design before it wears out. There are some bigger tables in some areas, in that case we usually refold and only cover part of the table. When your kids tell you they can't figure out a present for you, cause you have everything, ask for a new tablecloth and spring clips.

At BC Provincial Parks, the picnic table tops are about four inches thick so those clips don't work. We have table cloth weights that clip on to the hanging edge.

We carry those too, Lisa found some nice pretty cast metal ones that look like flowers.

Or on those real thick tables, not the concrete ones, you can go all Tim the Tool Man Taylor on them and use a staple gun, till the park man comes along and throws you out. Or big sinkers tied off on the corners.

I like for the tablecloth to be a little shorter than the table, so you can set hot stuff directly on the table. Oilcloth is nice, though; I'll be looking for some shortly!

We fold ours under fairly often for that reason. I do not use the Weber Q over the tablecloth either. Nothing says summertime to me better than a red and white checkered picnic table cover.
