what size runner do i get for a 72inc rectangular table and what size for a table overlay of a 60 inch round table?
I was told to get a 72in overlay for the 60 inch round tables. But im not sure about the runner for the 72inch rectangular table.

A 72″ overlay over a 60″ round will give you 6″ of fabric hanging off each side. That’s fine! I am getting an 85″ round in a contrasting color for my 60″ rounds.
I’m not sure about the 72 rectangular. Google different overlay measurements.

A 72″ rectangular table would require a runner anywhere from 84″ (for a 6″ overhang on each end) to 96″ (for a 12″ overhang on each end) to 108″ (for an 18″ overhang on each end).
If you are seating anyone at the end of the tables, I would limit the overhang to 6 to 12″ so it doesn’t get pulled off the table when that person slides their chair back.
If there is no one seated at the end of the table 12-18″ looks nice.
