In order to pick the right table linens for the occasion, you have to think about everything from the size of the table to the formality of the event. Additionally, consider the overall color scheme of the event so you can choose the right color tablecloth. Here’s what you need to know about table linen sizes and shapes.
Start by thinking about what kind of event the table linens are for. If they are for a more formal event like a business party, you might want a longer overhang in your table cloth. This is especially true for longer tables—you want to cover more of the space underneath the table with a long cloth. For less formal dinners and smaller tables, there doesn’t need to be so much overhang. Choose the right shape by looking at the shape of the table. A round tablecloth works for round tables, and square tables need square cloths.
