I'm trying to decide on a color of fabric to use for table covering and 'walls' in my booth at shows.
Does anyone have a suggestion? The bears are all different colors and as I'm bringing other artist bears with me that each have different styles I won't be going with a theme. It needs to just be a solid color. Green isn't the color to go with... been there! Brown is too close to the color of some of the bears. Cream or white gets dirty too easily. See why I'm having trouble??
I've done shows in the past and never used the same color twice.... mainly cause I have yet to find the right color. HELP!!!
I am so sorry haley that I cannot offer a suggestion. All shows that we do have curtains and table cloths provided. We have no choice but to go with the theme.
I've only had tables to cover . . . no walls. Since I love plaid, my cover is a plaid tablecloth I bought at Wal Mart.
It mostly looks okay with all the bears. The colors are my favorite autumn-ish hues. But then I'm not any help because you want a solid color . . . what about a dark gray or black?
I do lots of shows here in the Bay area of CA. I have several different table covers. The ones that I use the most are a dark burgandy and dark forest green. Then I use piano scarves and lace doilies etc. to put under any of the bears that need a different color under them. I also rep. other artists bears at the shows. Many times I will give each different artist a different color accent for their area on the table. I like to use sheer on the table. I like to use sheer if I am covering the area behind my table. It will still let the light through to the bears but it helps stop the distraction of the table behind me. There were some artists that used to do shows that had a golden tan table cover that worked very well with just about every color combo they put with it.
Well, i really have no experience, and no idea really. How about a blue?
Danni - I was thinking the same thing. :)
I like the idea of blue and I think darker fabrics show off bears better, maybe a navy?
Kirsten & Danni - I was thinking blue too! My last name is German for blue and it's my favorite color. Definitely navy. I've used green in the past and need a change. Burgand sounds good too.
I liked Donna's idea of sheer too though as light is important. So that got me thinking on gooseneck lights....
