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!
