When we officially booked our venue, it came with tables for our use, and I was thrilled at the prospect of not having to worry about table rentals. But … either I’m not getting the table-to-tablecloth size thing right, or we have some odd tables. My tables are rectangular 72" by 30". So if I want the tablecloths to hit the floor, what size tablecloths do I need?

I learned that you calculate table length as follows:
table size (ex: 72" round)
table linen length (ex: I want knee length linens so I would rent 108" linens because 108" – 72" = 36", so there will be an 18" "drop" on all sides; if you want a 3/4 length your tablecloth would be 120", or greater for floor length)
If you need more info or specifics, just google your question like I did. Hope this helps!

You have a typical 6 foot banquet table (rectangular). To calculate the dimensions for it to hit the floor on all sides:
WIDTH: table height x 2 + width……..30×2+30= 90 inches wide
LENGTH: table height x 2 + length…..30×2+72=132 inches wide
You’ll need a 90×132 inch table cloth to hit the floor.
Hope that helps!
