I think it depends on whether or not there is something decorative on the end (a monogram or ruffled end?) or if you want them to hang to the floor.

I would confirm first with your tablecloth supplier how long their tablecloths with be.  If theirs will hang to the floor or if they will only hang over a foot or two?  I say this because I did not specify with my supplier…  I only said how big our tables were and assumed they would have them hang at least a couple feet over on the edges.  I had sewn my own runners…  with a monogrammed and ruffled ends to hang just a foot off the ends and BHAM!  when I got to the venue our tablecloths only hung a couple inches over the sides of the table!  I think the tables ended up looking awkward because my runners hung lower than the cloths…  so – learn from my lesson!
