First, let’s find out what size table linens you need. Using our handy "Table Linen Buying Guide", you’ll be able to instantly calculate the proper size for your table linens. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!


To use the "Table Linen Buying Guide", start by entering in your table shape. Select from one of our four choices - square, round, rectangular, or oval.


Next, enter in your table dimensions. If you have square tables, enter the length/width. If your tables are round, enter the diameter. If they’re rectangular or oval, enter in both the width and the length.


Finally, enter the “drop” that you would like for your table linens. This is the amount of table cover that you would like to drop from each side of the table. Keep in mind that most formal affairs will require a drop between 15” and 30” (somewhere between mid-floor to floor-length).

Once everything is entered, the calculator will automatically calculate your table linen size!
