This post was updated on 3-28-2015 to reflect the changes we made on our website to make it even easier to order custom sized tablecloths online.
To figure out what size tablecloth will best fit your table, first you’ll need to measure your table. Our easy tablecloth calculator shows you what to measure and allows you to enter your table measurements and desired drop to calculate your tablecloth size.
Here are some of the most common drop measurements:
- 8″-10″ for a kitchen or casual setting
- 10″-12″ (to lap level) for a more formal setting
- 15″ for standard banquet table (any size)
- 29″-30″ to the floor (depending on table height)
To order a tablecloth, select select “Buy Table Linen” from under the “SHOP” menu. Next, choose the shape of your tablecloth.
After you select the shape you want (Round Tablecloths were selected for this demonstration), you select a fabric. In this example, there are 197 fabrics to choose from. You can narrow the selction of fabrics by selecting specific Fabrics and Colors from the drop down menus. You can also sort the fabrics by Popularity, Price, Fabric Name, and Fabric Width.
After you select a fabric, you’ll come to the fabric page that has a row of tabs below the fabric images and description. Under the “Pricing” tab you’ll see “Order Any Size Tablecloth.” There are instructions for “How to Measure” your table and a “Calculate Tablecloth Size” link that brings up a popup window where you can enter your table measurements and calulate the size of your tablecloth. Make sure you add the drop to your table measurements or your tablecloth will have no drop! Select the tablecloth size from the drop down menu (if you used the calculator the size will be entered automatically). The price of your tablecloth is displayed after the size is selected. Now select a Fabric Color and Quantity, and then click the red “ADD TO CART” button. That’s all there is to it.
If you’re ordering a large square or rectangular tablecloth, an option to select a corner style may appear after you’ve selected your tablecloth measurements. Round corners will keep your tablecloth from puddling if you plan for the cloth to drape to the floor. Selecting a corner style will not change the price of your tablecloth.
