I think it would look odd because it’d be dragging on the ground.  If you’re outside they’ll also get dirty and people kick them and they drag on the ground.

That would only have 9 inches of overhang–I think it would look too short. I don’t think you need to hit the ground, but thats awfully short. I’m using 90 inch squares on my 60 inch rounds. It obviously doesn’t go to the ground all the way around, but with the points hanging low, I think it gives a nice look. I’m actually making mine, so the square was much easier, and alot of fabric is 45 inches wide, so its easy.

cvlinens.com and linentablecloth.com both have cheap linens to buy (dependig on rental prices in your area, they could be cheaper, plus you can try to resell)

Ignore my post above.  I thought you meant that you wanted to use long linens meant for 72″ rounds on your 60″ rounds.

I think that’s a little short.  You’ll see the table legs.  But if you wanted to go with a 78″ runner, that would look ok.  Runners don’t have to go all the way to the ground, but I think they do look better generally if they at least go over the edge of the table.

If you want to go with the sale linens, is it something you can add a border to the bottom to make the overhang longer? Lace? Contrasting color?
