The perfect summer picnic setting comes with a healthy mix of sun and shade, plus a bit of a breeze. To prevent your tablecloth from turning into a parachute, here are five handy table anchors some of which can be concocted on the spot. Above: Keep outdoor tablecloths from flying away with a set of Four Metal Pegs  of stainless steel; €7,20 from Manufactum in Germany. We first featured the pegs on Gardenista in  Steal This Look: The Last Outdoor Dinner of the Season . Another option are Coleman's  less heavy-duty but still effective set of six Tablecloth Clamps ;  $3.49. Above: Take a tip from paint and color expert Eve Ashcraft and paint a set of rocks and shells natural objects  in different colors and patterns. Use the rocks to hold down each corner of the tablecloth on the base. Above: Alternatively, wrap twine or sisal around heavy stones and hang over the sides to  weigh down the tablecloth . Seen on Lush Home . Above: Enjoy sewing? Take the idea a step further and stitch four pockets into the corners of your tablecloth. Insert small weights to each, a project seen on Creations by Kara . Above: The  Martha Stewart  approach is, not surprsingly, a bit more elaborate: she tidily anchors the tablecloth below the table with a few strategically placed grommets and a bungee cord. To complete the experience, find the  The Perfect Picnic Table  on Gardenista. And consider making your own  DIY: Natural Turmeric-Dyed Tablecloth . Then sift through some of our favorite ways to set the table presented in Gardenista's  Photo Gallery .
