How to Choose The Right Tablecloth Size for Your Table

Not sure what size tablecloth to purchase for your event or home tables? It is important to always measure the table at your venue. Tables come in all shapes and sizes, but there are some common standard rectangular and round table table sizes found at venues, hire providers and for sale. We have listed these table sizes further down the page, and the length our tablecloths fall to on them.

When picking the right tablecloth for your event, trade-show or wedding, consider what that table will be used for, how formal the occasion is, and how long you want it to be. For seated dining tables and wedding banquets a general rule of thumb is that the more formal the event, the longer the tablecloth. Do keep in mind though that if guests are to be sitting at the table and will be getting up and down a lot you may want to pick a tablecloth that doesn't drop completely to the floor. This will prevent chairs and legs becoming all caught up in the table cloth.

For Bridal Tables, Buffets, Trade Shows and Markets we also sell specialty fitted floor length 3 and 4 sided tablecloths. These come in a variety of styles, colours and fabrics to suit every occasion! 

For standing functions high bar Cocktail Tables are all the rage. We sell full length lycra spandex dry bar covers for these as well as cocktail table cover toppers. It is also popular to use a standard round flat tablecloth on a tall cocktail table and tie the waste with a satin, organza or hessian sash.
