I know that this information is definitely out there on the boards somewhere but I will ask again anyway. What size tablecloths go with what size tables? And how many people can you sit at different tables? Basically I’m trying to decide between 60” and 72” tables…

I think the tablecloth size depends not only on the size of the table, but also on how far down you want the tablecloths to hang over the sides of the tables. For example, we have 60" round tables and floor-length tablecloths are actually 120". If we wanted the tablecloths that only go halfway to the floor, I think those were like 90" or 100". It was something weird. You should be able to ask whomever you are getting your linens from and they will be able to help you find exactly the size you need.
I also found some specifications on what size tables fit how many guests. Hope this helps!

60" tables can seat 8-10 people, 72" tables can seat 10-12 people. For floorlength linens on a 60" table you would need 120" tablecloths – if you want them to fall halfway, it would be 85" or 90". 72" tables require a 130" or above, the 130" will not fall directly to the floor but will hover a little bit above it.
The 60" tables do seat up to 10 but I would suggest 8 at a table, otherwise depending on the setup on each table, it can get quite crowded.
Hope this helps you
