I wanted to do some overlays as well. And I agree, if anyone has pictures that would be great to see.

 I don’t have pictures, but you can figure it out this way: the typical height of a table is 30″. When you put a 90″ overlay on a 60″ table, the overhang will be 15″ on each side (30″/2) at the shortest part (about halfway to the floor).

For a 36″ table, if you want the cloth to hang lower, you could use a 72″ overlay. That would give you 18″ drops (about 12″ from the floor) at the shortest part, and the corners would likely hit the floor or pool slightly. Or you could use a 90″ square on the 36″ table, and the cloth would almost hit the floor on all sides (maybe 3″ short), and definitely pool in the corners. 

If you’re worried about the pooling in the corners, you can tuck the corners in. Or it might be worth buying actual round tablecloths for a few small tables? That would probably be cheaper than buying two overlays for a single table.

Hope that helps (and that I did my math right! LOL).
