How To Select The Right Size Tablecloth For Your Table
Tablecloths bring ambience and completeness to your dining experience. Whether formal or casual, it adds the special touch to the occasion that you would like to remember and celebrate.
For formal dining, we suggest 8 to 12 inch drops on all sides. For casual dining, a 6 to 8 inch drop is sufficient.
For a more dramatic look, lengthen the drop on each side. This will create a puddle effect on the floor and is ideal for lavish celebrations.
To determine the size you need, measure the length and width (or diameter, if you have a round table) of your table and add twice the desired drop to each figure.
Here is a basic list of standard tablecloth sizes and table sizes they would fit:
A 72" X 72" cloth will fit tables that are up to 32" X 32" square table. These tables will seat 4-6 people.
A 48" X 60" cloth will fit tables that are up 32" X 44" oblong or oval table. These tables will seat 4-6 people.
A 72" X 90" cloth will fit tables that are up to 56" X 74" oblong or round table. These tables will seat 6-8 people.
A 72" X 108" cloth will fit tables that are up to 56" X 92" oblong or round table. These tables will seat 8-10 people.
A 36" cloth will fit tables 24" in diameter round table. These tables will seat 1-2 people. This size cloth is good for a small bistro table or side table.
A 70" cloth will fit tables 54" in diameter round table. These tables will seat 6-8 people.
A 90" cloth will fit tables 74" in diameter round table. These tables will seat 8-10 people.
For every table, we recommend a drop (overhang of your tablecloth) of at least 8 inches. That means the 8" fold over that is on each side will hang over the sides and give you an attractive look to match your decorating style or mood for any occasion!
Some of you may want the drop to be lower than the standard 8 inches. If you want a 15-inch drop which would be halfway down from where it was originally folded up, or all way down with 30 inch folds going straight below, then please see our suggested sizes in order to calculate what type might work best for whichever option suits your needs best.
For every dining room set out there - make sure to get yourself some nice matching linens and fold them accordingly so they have no creases when hung.
When I got married last spring, I had custom handkerchiefs made for all of the attendees at my bridal shower and it was the perfect bridal shower gift! Bumblebee also made my "something blue," a dress label with my new monogram (in blue!) that was sewn into my wedding dress. I am not the type that wanted to wear a garter belt or blue shoes, so this was a great way to incorporate this tradition while remaining true to my personal style. I will refer Bumblebee Linens to all of my friends!
This company not only has great customer service, but they actually care and have great quality products. I purchased a hankie for my big day, which was beyond beautiful and brought me to tears as it was very special to me to have as I walk down the aisle, since I personalized it with a message to my mom and grandmother, who are no longer with us. I would highly recommend this company to anyone as they are extremely professional, answer emails in a timely fashion and ships quickly.
I knew I wanted to do something special for my sister and soon-to-be mother-in-law so I decided to get them a couple embroidered handerkerchiefs as wedding presents. Not only do I highly recommend the quality product from Bumblebee Linens, but I also highly recommend their customer service. Beautiful, heirloom quality handkerchiefs make thoughtful, personal gifts that you will be proud to give and they won’t break the bank.
If you are looking for beautiful heirloom hankies, Bumblebee Linens is just the right place to find them. I've purchased over 150 times from Bumblebee Linens, and I open each package knowing I'm going to find something gorgeous. Their products are high-end, top quality. Their service is exceptional! I continue to be a very satisfied customer since 2011.
