Tablecloths should be long enough to drape over the edge of the table. How much the tablecloth should hang over the edge, however, depends on the style you want (more formal tablecloths tend to be longer than casual tablecloths) and the type of table you have. You may want to shorten a tablecloth to make sure your guests don't have too much tablecloth in their laps, or to make it hang evenly around all the sides of the table. Since the thread you use when you shorten the tablecloth will show, make sure to use thread that matches the tablecloth as closely as possible.
One of the most common issues faced by people looking to buy any product in this area and certainly a regular question I am asked a lot of is what material to use. Here's what I personally would suggest you need to go something is personal to you, the look and feel you want to create. Not some generic advice that doesn't work as a one size fits all - not not at all. You need to go for something that is durable, long lasting, machine washable (because the bill for cleaning say a silk tablecloth is way to expensive for the average house hold) and feels good to touch. Therefore, in my mind and my humble and honest opinion you are looking at one or two possible options with one or two variations on this theme, it has to be a cotton or cotton-polyester substitute.
In addition to covering your dining or kitchen table, a homemade tablecloth can cover a small, round side table. Depending upon the width of the fabric and the tabletop, you may need to sew several widths of fabric together to make a round tablecloth. You can learn how to make a round tablecloth out of several fabrics. You can sew a tablecloth out of a mid-weight cotton or linen fabric or use a laminated cotton for a wipe-off tablecloth.
Tablecloths are an essential accessory not only in our homes but even in restaurants, hotels, banquet halls, party rental stores, caterers, churches and even to some other places where dining facilities are available. Dining tables form an essential part of both formal and informal gatherings. Hence, it becomes very important that you known how to take measurement for tablecloth sizes. The sizes are likely to differ with the shape you are opting for. Tables are generally available in shapes like rectangular, round, oval and square.
A complete range of linens can be obtained through the internet or from exclusive linen supply companies. Aside from this, tablecloths and chair covers are also becoming available in discount party stores.
Round tablecloths aren't just for dining tables. In fact, there are many reasons to introduce a tablecloth into your living area as a covering for an accent piece, such as a side table. For one thing, it adds a dose of elegance, and it can cover even the most basic of tables, instantly upping the style factor.
