# Sizing Guide

### Have questions about how to determine the right size tablecloth? Maybe we can help...

The tablecloth drop is the length of the tablecloth that hangs off the sides. In general, we advise planning for a drop of anywhere from 8" to 12" but it often comes down to personal taste. Sometimes it depends on the tablecloth itself - some have intricate corners and are designed to look very elegant with a longer drop. Have small children? Then you probably want a shorter drop.

In the end, it comes down to what's right for you.

I Know my table dimensions - what size tablecloth should I look for?

Calculate the tablecloth size you're looking for by taking the dimensions of your table and adding 2x the amount of drop you want on either side.

For example: if your table is 60" long and you want a drop of 10" then you will be looking for tablecloths that are close to 80".

I Know the tablecloth dimensions - what tables will it work with?

Calculate the drop by taking the tablecloth size, subtracting the dimensions of the table, and divide the result by 2.

For example: Our recommended tablecloth for a 6 person table measures 63"x78". If your table is 60" long, the drop will be 9". (78-60=18, divided by 2)
