Tablecloth Size Calculator

To determine your tablecloth size, you will need to know the following.

  • The dimensions of your table, length and width.
  • The most desired drop:
    • 8″-12″ to lap level
    • 29″-30″ to the floor

Once you have these dimensions, to determine the tablecloth sizes, add the drop twice to each of  your tabletop measurements.

For Example:    

Table size is 36″ by 60″; desired drop is 12″
12″ (drop size) X 2=24″
Add 36″ + 24″= 60″
Add 60″ + 24″= 84″
Tablecloth Size= 60″ X 84″


Square Tables and Rectangles

If you want your square or rectangular tablecloth, to drop to the floor, you will need to choose the round the corners option when adding it to your shopping cart. Otherwise, the corners will drag on the floor.


When ordering an oval, our standard oval is shaped like a racetrack.  If your oval is more “egg-shaped”, you will need to send us a template of the tabletop for us to use as a pattern. There will be an additional $75.00 template fee for custom non-standard ovals in our cloth fabrics, and all vinyl ovals.

Tablecloth sizes

Some people like to put a square tablecloth over a round table. This is a nice look and the square tablecloth size will need to be roughly 8″ to 16″ bigger than the diameter of the table top.
