Measuring The Tables
Check this page for more details
Once you determined the number of tables and style (cocktail, round, rectangle) of tables, it is time to take measurements.
When measuring tables for cloths ﬁnd the 3 measurements that will help you and us get the right table cloth for your event. Measure the following: side to side (the length of the table), back to front (the width of the table) and top to ground (the height of the table).
Hint: Normally, most ” folding leg” tables (round or rectangular) are 30 inches high. Standard Rectangular banquet tables are usually 30 inches wide.
Here are some general rules of thumb for linen sizes.
• 36″ round table (seats two – four) use 80″ sq or 90″ rd both ﬂoor length
• 48″ round table (seats six) use 80″ sq or 90″ rd for chair height overhang
• 60″ round table (seats six to eight) use 90″ rd for chair height overhang or 120″ to drape to the ﬂoor
• 72″ round table (seats eight to ten) use 90″ rd for chair height overhang, 120″ for a 24″ to drape to the ﬂoor
• 6′ banquet table ( seats 6 ) use standard banquet cloth for chair height overhang
• 8′ banquet table ( seats 8 ) use standard banquet cloth for chair height overhang
More About Overhangs
To achieve a more formal or elegant look go with longer or ﬂoor length table covers. When having an outdoor event look for ﬂoor length table covers that cover all four sides of a table. Then guests can walk around the yard and not see unsightly table legs and rental crates. Don’t be afraid to use ﬂoor length covers outside.
Changing the overhang length changes the look. Over hangs are based on the longest side of a table (Side to Side). Standard tables are approximately 30 inches tall. Take the overhang length and subtract it from the table height (Table to Ground) and you have the distance from the ground to the table cloth or how much leg is showing.
