Here is a guide to calculate the tablecloth size for any table.

Round Tables

Take the size table you have and length of a drop you want. The tablecloth size you need can be found by multiplying the drop length by 2, then adding the table diameter. For example, you have a 60 inch table and want a 15 inch drop (halfway to the floor), you multiply 15 by 2 (15x2=30) then add the table diameter (30+60=90) to get 90 inches, which means you need a 90 inch round tablecloth.

To find the tablecloth drop (the length your tablecloth will hang down from the tabletop), you simply subtract the table diameter from the linen diameter and then divide by two. For instance, you have a 60 inch round table and have a 120 inch round tablecloth. Subtract 60 from 120 (120-60=60) then divide by 2 (60/2= 30 inches). This means a 120 inch round tablecloth will cover a 60 inch round table and drop 30 inches off the table, all the way to the floor.

 

Square Tables

Take the size table you have and length of a drop you want. The tablecloth size you need can be found by multiplying the drop length by 2, then adding the table length. For example, you have a 36 inch table and want a 18 inch drop ( just over halfway to the floor), you multiply 18 by 2 (18x2=36) then add the table length (36+36=72) to get 72 inches, which means you need a 72 inch square tablecloth.

To find the tablecloth drop (the length your tablecloth will hang down from the tabletop), you simply subtract the table length from the linen size and then divide by two. For instance, you have a 48 inch square table and have a 70 inch square tablecloth. Subtract 48 from 70 (70-48=22) then divide by 2 (22/2= 11 inches). This means a 70 inch square tablecloth will cover a 48 inch square table and drop 11 inches off the table, just over a third of the way to the floor.
