The size of the table linen should be chosen while keeping the occasion in mind. For formal occasions, it should hang down 10 inches to 12 inches around the table. If you want to add extra elegance, then you can create a drop of 15 to 30 inches. The key to creating a dramatic look is to choose a longer drop.
Familiesamilies start to take their holiday décor out of storage. Tablecloths in particular are something that we tend to spend a little extra money on, and want to keep looking perfect throughout the holiday season. It is important to properly preserve your tablecloth to keep it looking as though it is brand new each year.
For informal outdoor dining or picnics, vinyl tablecloths offer weather resistance and easy clean up. Vinyl resists damage from stains, light, water or air exposure. Vinyl tablecloths are commonly associated with informal and outdoor dining, so they may not be ideal for formal weddings or events. Vinyl tablecloths are available in several colors and patterns to match any color scheme or theme. Vinyl is also one of the cheapest fabric options for tablecloths.
For semi-formal indoor dining or outdoor parties, polyester table cloths offer similar benefits of cotton as well as some additional perks. Polyester is a synthesized material that is used to make fabric and can be combined with other fabrics like cotton to create a polyester blend. Like cotton, polyester is durable, machine-washable, relatively inexpensive and available in many colors and patterns. Unlike cotton, polyester will not shrink if it is placed on a long cycle in a dryer. Polyester has a slightly silkier and shinier appearance than cotton which makes it better suited for more formal affairs like weddings or birthday parties. Some people have sensitivities to polyester because it is made from chemicals.

Everyone will have guests in their home. Now imagine your tablecloth getting torn up only because your kid was trying to stand up holding it, maybe because it had become weak after 2-3 washes. The reason for tearing in not important here, what is important is how embarrassing the situation can be. So, if you don't want to face such a situation then you better have a durable tablecloth.
