Tablecloth Sizing Guide:


At Gracious Style, we specialize in table linens, dinnerware, and entertaining accessories. We know how important the right tablecloth is for setting your table, so here are some suggestions on choosing the right size for your tablecloth:

  • For formal dining, we suggest a tablecloth which drapes 8 to 12 inches on all sides:
  • For a more dramatic look, lengthen the drop to 30 or more on each side. This will create a puddle effect on the floor and is ideal for lavish celebrations:
  • To determine the size you need, measure the length and width (or diameter, if you have a round table) of your table and add twice the desired drop to each figure. When measuring, don't forget any leaves or extensions you may have, as it is common for tables to be extended when entertaining.
  • Following is a basic chart of standard tablecloth sizes and the table sizes they would fit:
