If you think that you can't do much with a tablecloth, think again. Getting creative with your tablecloth placement and usage can have a dramatic visual effect on any dinner, event or banquet. Tablecloths, when used cleverly, make just as big a statement as flowers, centerpieces and the rest of your decor-you just have to be willing to arrange them in ways you haven't necessarily tried before. When you do that, your table settings will get as much acclaim as whatever you put on them.
Tablecloths are manufactured from different kinds of materials, including cotton, vinyl, linen and silk. The type of material used will mostly be determined by the occasion the tablecloth will be used for. Some tablecloths work best for certain events and in certain locations. However, each type of tablecloth has its advantages and disadvantages.
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.
