As National Picnic Month draws to a close, we thought we’d show you some of our favourite oilcloth designs that are just perfect for a picnic or a spot of al fresco summer dining.

Find your perfect picnic oilcloth

When we think of picnics, we tend to think of traditional gingham! Gingham has become an incredibly popular pattern for tablecloths over the years and never seems to fall out of favour.

At Only Oilcloths, we stock an extensive range of gorgeous gingham and check patterns in a variety of beautiful colours, featuring both small and large check designs. Here are just a few of our favourites:


‘Vichy Teal’ gloss oilcloth

‘Vichy Forest’ gloss oilcloth

‘Great Gingham Lime’ gloss oilcloth


There are plenty more patterns and colours for you to choose from on the ‘Check and Stripe’ section of our website.

As well as picnics, gingham and checks are also a really popular choice for barbecues and al fresco dining. For outdoor tables, don’t forget that we stock parasol holes and rings, as well as tablecloth clips in a choice of both stainless steel and clear plastic.
