Sizing Charts
 
We hope that the table linen sizing charts below will be a useful resource for you to determine the best choice for your table shape and size. For the purposes of the charts below, a standard banquet table height of 30 inches is assumed. Therefore, a drop of 30 inches would indicate a floor-length table linen drop.
 
Key:
 
= Uniform or common tablecloth drop

-- = Tablecloth size is not recommended for table with a standard 30 inch height
 
 
Round Tables
First, you need to choose the amount of drop you'd like to have. The standard round banquet table is 30" high, so to drop halfway to the floor you need 15". (see illustration above, left) If you want to cover a 60 inch round table and have the standard 15" drop, you will need 60" to cover the table-top, then an additional 15" on either side of the table: top = 60", drop from edge of table = 15" (X 2 - two edges.) So you will need a 90" round tablecloth to cover your 60" round table and still have 15" of drop.
Now, if you want the tablecloth to drop all the way to the floor, you will need 30" drop instead of 15". Formula: top = 60", drop from edge of table = 30" (X 2 - two edges), for a total length of 120 inches.

Standard sizes:
  • 48" round table needs 70" cloth
  • 60" round table needs 90" cloth or for an old style "square-on- round" look, use a 120" round tablecloth with an 85" square tablecloth on a 60" round table
  • 72" round table needs 120" cloth.
Square and Rectangular Tables
The standard banquet table is 30" high, so to drop halfway to the floor you need 15". (see illustration above, left) So, if you want to cover a 55 inch square table and have the standard 15" drop, you will need 55" to cover the table-top, then an additional 15" on either side of the table: top = 55", drop from edge of table = 15" (X 2 - two edges.) You will need an 85" square tablecloth to cover your 55" table and still have 15" of drop.
 
 
Rectangular Tables must take into account both the length and the width.

Standard sizes:
  • 6' rectangular banquet table needs a 60x102 cloth. (15" uniform drop)
  • 8' rectangular banquet table needs a 60x126 cloth. (15" uniform drop)
  • 90x132 cloth: when used on a 6' banquet table the cloth will drop all the way to the floor.
Use this formula for any size table: add to the diameter of the table 30" for a standard drop. For a drop that goes all the way to the floor add 60"to the diameter of the table top.
