Tablecloth Size Chart

It’s no secret that tableclothsfactory.com is a true paradise for professional event planners – as a reputable manufacturer of high-quality table linens, we offer an immense range of inexpensive tablecloths that come in a plethora of shapes and sizes. While you might be sure about the shape, you might have a hard time finding a suitable tablecloth size. To be honest, there’s nothing surprising about it – our round tablecloths range in diameter from 70 to 132 inches wide whereas our rectangular linens offer size options from 54 x 96 to 90 x 156 inches! Since you might be too busy for any calculations, we’ve got you covered with our Tablecloth Size Chart, which will make finding the right tablecloth size a cinch. To make things even easier, see how to use our Sizing Chart below!

Step One: Measure Your Table Size & Find It in the Sizing Chart

Though our Tablecloth Size Chart is a powerful tool of finding the right size for your table linens, the first thing you should do before consulting it is to measure your tabletop. While all standard tables are 30 inches high (you can see this in our Tablecloth Size Chart), they vary in diameter, length, and width.

Round

With that being said, if you are dealing with a round table, measure the center of your table from one end to another to know the diameter. Hint: according to our Sizing Chart, it must vary from 30 to 72 inches.

Rectangular

 If you are using our Tablecloth Size Chart to find suitable linens for a rectangular table, use a ruler or a measurement tape to find the width and the length of your table. It should be noted that our linens fit tables that are 30 inches wide and 48-96 inches long – you can check this information in the left column of our Sizing Chart.

Step Two: Decide on the Drop & Find It in the Sizing Chart

Once you’ve measured your table, please move on to the length of a drop, which is the amount of linen that hangs down from the edge of the table. It should be noted that the length of a typical drop ranges from 8 to 12 inches, however, it isn’t the only option (our Tablecloth Size Chart will prove you that). Please bear in mind that the drop greatly impacts the appearance of your table. To this end, the drop length typically varies in accordance with the style of the event.

8-Inch Drop

Though you can’t find this information in our Sizing Chart, an 8-inch drop is used by the majority of food and catering services, which is for a reason – while it is long enough to give an elegant look to a table, it makes it comfortable for guests to sit at the table.

10-12-Inch Drops

Of course, an 8-inch drop isn’t the only way to go, and our Tablecloth Size Chart will prove you that. To achieve a more formal appearance, you can go for the longer drops (see them in the upper part of our Sizing Chart). For example, 10-12-inch drops will give your table a slender, feminine look. At the same time, it should be noted that the given tablecloth drops can be uncomfortable for some diners – during the event, they (linens, of course!) tend to bunch up underneath the table and thus, make it difficult for diners to move. That’s the main reason why food services prefer the shorter tablecloth drops (find them in the lower part of our Sizing Chart).

30-Inch Drop

Whenever you are planning a grandeur wedding or an upscale banquet, it won’t be complete without a tablecloth that elegantly touches the floor. To this end, your drop must coincide with the height of your table (otherwise, it will look awkward on your table – you can find this information in our Tablecloth Size Chart). With that being said, since the standard table height measures 30 inches, it’s advisable to go for a 30-inch drop. However, if your table happens to be taller, please make sure that your linens offer the corresponding drop.

Step Three: Consult the Tablecloth Size Chart

Once you find the size of your table and the desired drop of your tablecloth, it’s time to consult our Tablecloth Size Chart for the right size of your table linens. It’s worth noting that using our Sizing Chart is easier than it seems.

How to Use our Size Chart to Size a Round Tablecloth

For example, if you have a round 30-inch table, and you want a 20-inch drop, you’ll need to find the size of your table in the first column of our Sizing Chart. Once done, move across the “30-Inch Round” line of our Tablecloth Size Chart to find the “20-inch Drop” section (hint: it’s in the second column of our Linens Sizing Chart). As shown in our Sizing Chart, you’ll need a 70-inch round tablecloth. Luckily, finding it in our online store is a breeze – all you need to do is just to visit our Round Tablecloths Section, pick the fabric, and then, choose the needed diameter. At the same time, if the upcoming occasion requires a tablecloth that touches the floor, go to our Sizing Chart, see the “30-inch Round” line and find there the “To the Floor” section – as soon as you look at the “Linen Size” line, you’ll know that a 90-inch round tablecloth is exactly what you need.

How to Use our Size Chart to Size a Rectangular Tablecloth

To find the tablecloth size for a rectangular table in our Tablecloth Size Chart, you’ll need your table’s dimensions (length and width), which you took earlier. If there’s an informal occasion on the agenda, and your table is 30 inches wide and 72 inches long, chances are the needed drop is 12 x 12 inches. To find the right size with the help of our Tablecloth Size Chart, first up, consult the “Table Size” column for 30 x 72. Once you are done, move across the “30 x 72” line of our Sizing Chart to find the needed drop. As soon as it’s found, look at the “Linen Size” line of our Chart – you’ll see that the needed dimensions are 54 x 96 inches.

It also should be noted that in case you still haven’t decided on the drop, but there’s a certain table cover, which won you over, our Tablecloth Size Chart can help you see beforehand whether this tablecloth fits your table or not (please see the “Too Short” or the “Too Long” sections).

Can I Use the Sizing Chart to Size a Square Tablecloth?

In case you are looking for a tablecloth for a square table, unfortunately, our Tablecloth Size Chart is not the way-out. However, you won’t have a hard time finding the needed size for your table linens even without our Sizing Chart. Since the width and the length of a square table coincide, measure one of the sides and decide on the drop. After that, you can easily get the tablecloth size by multiplying the drop length by 2 and then, by adding the result to the table dimensions. For example, if you want a 15-inch drop for your 42 x 42-inch table, you’ll need to multiply 15 by 2 and then, add it to 42 – thus, even without our Tablecloth Size Chart, you’ll easily know that the needed dimensions are 72 x 72 inches.
