When purchasing a tablecloth, customers always ask what size tablecloth they need for their table. In order to figure that out, you need to answer a few questions:

What shape table do you have?

To figure out the dimensions of the table measure the diameter or the length of the table for a round table and the length and width of a table for rectangle and square. For oval sizes measure the long diameter and the short diameter. If using leaves or extensions please make sure to include that in your measurement.

What is the drop length of the table?

To determine the drop length of the table (which is the fabric that extends from the edge of the table down) will depend on what type of occasion you will be using the tablecloth for.

The height of most tables is 30” inches. For casual dining table people like to have an 8 inch drop and for formal dining a 15 inch drop. For a table being used as a serving table or a display table you may want it to reach the floor and measure 30 inches. Keep in mind that in an eating area you don’t want people tripping over a too long tablecloth or having their evening bags lost under the tablecloth!  If you are not sure what size drop you prefer, drape a napkin or towel over the edge of the table to get a better idea.

Now that I have that information what do I do?

Multiply the desired drop length by 2 (since the drop is the same on both sides of the table) and add the result to the actual length of your table. This is the tablecloth length. Determine the tablecloth width in the same manner. For a circular table multiply the drop length by two and add that to the diameter. Remember you must double the drop measurement as you have to drop down on both sides of the width and both ends of the length.
_____Length + ____drop on right + ____drop of left = _______

_____Width + _____drop on right +____ drop of left =_______

_____Diameter + ____drop of right + ____drop of left = _____

When choosing a tablecloth, keep in mind that rectangle tablecloths work on oval tables. Many people like the look of a square tablecloth on a round table.  If you have a custom table size, please ask to see if we can help. Enjoy your event.

Every bride, and every mother of the bride, is only too well aware of the feeling. It’s the biggest day of your life and you want every last detail to be perfect. If you are planning the wedding of your dreams you have so much to think about; you’ll be thinking about your dress or dresses, your bridesmaids’ dresses and perhaps, even more importantly, what the mother of the bride is wearing!

We understand that completely, but we would like to gently remind you of something else that needs dressing. Yes, your wedding tables! They may be low down on your list of priorities, coming after entertainment, hospitality and flowers, but if you are paying attention to all the small details, tablecloths for weddings are crucial.

Our range of stylish wedding tablecloths will help to give your wedding the WOW factor that you desire. We have traditional tablecloths that come in several colors and sizes, such as the Diamond Rectangle tablecloth, with a matching range of round tablecloths, along with the fabulously chic Kensington range, and the simply sophisticated Sophia range.

Kensington Round Tablecloth

If you have a color theme choose table linen from our Elegant range, as these are ideally suited as colored wedding tablecloths. For a contemporary wedding, use a bright and bold colored tablecloth and top with a plain, light color. Dress the table as boldly as you like, perhaps using Moroccan style lanterns as a centerpiece rather than flowers, and bright colored tea glasses for a really unusual touch, or colored wine glasses. These are perfect party tablecloths too, so you can use them over!

Lavender Round Tablecloth

For a more feminine effect top our pastel shade tablecloths off with one of our sensationally pretty table toppers that comes in square, round and star shapes. Decorate with flowers and ribbons, candles and delicate tableware and crockery.

Similarly if you are considering the current vogue for nostalgia and retro themed weddings, lacy table toppers are perfect for a vintage tablecloth effect. Vintage chic is all the rage at the moment. Choose a cream or pale pink tablecloth and then accessorize it with gold and silver tableware, such as candelabras, with heavy glassware and fresh flowers. Keep the table plain and simple, using your vintage tablecloth as the backdrop for your work of art. Don’t overdo confetti or favors, and certainly do not use anything plastic or metallic.

For the ultimate finish top your vintage tablecloth or wedding tablecloth with beautiful lacy Victorian Rose placemats as these will provide the prettiest of talking points.
