I am not sure if this is a food or reception topic.
I have been looking to hire linen table clothes and was quoted a price of $8.50 each for hire which seemed Ok to me. But now I look at the fine print it seems that they offer 2 sizes of table clothes the ones I am thinking of getting called “Banquet Cloths” these clothes are only going to be 60″ x 120″ and Banquet table cloths” at 90″ x 156″ at $20 each.
As you can imagine this is a bit of a jump and more than doubles the price I budgeted. Are the 60″ x 120″ ones going to be big enough to look nice. I don’t want them to hang all the way down to the ground, but I would like them to hang nicely.
I think a lot of my problem is that I have been bought up thinking it metric so I cannot picture how big the cloths are. (Don’t ask me the problems I am having ordering food in pounds and gallons. . I am either going to be swimming in coleslaw or run out after 2 people)
So what do you guys think? Are the $8.50 cloths going to be long enough for a standard 6 person rectangle banquet table?
