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.
If you choose to rent your round tablecloths, it is very important that you appoint someone to be in charge of collecting and returning the linens. You probably won't want to handle this yourself, so you need to choose someone who is very reliable. The tablecloths will usually need to be either picked up or dropped off the day after the wedding. If they are late, you will have to pay for an extra day's rental. Whether you choose to rent or buy the round tablecloths for your wedding be sure to check the prices at a few places to be sure that you are getting a good deal.
When you first mention to some round tablecloths, what do they think of? I'm not sure, I would be guessing to tell the honest truth. What I can quite often tell you is what they are not thinking about which is how much a pain it is to purchase. It is a big problem for a lot of our clients (I do a lot of interior design work out in the field) why because so many people are conditioned into buying for a normal oblong or rectangular table and don't have any experience otherwise to know what to do but that's the nature of the round tablecloths.
Looking for a specific style of round tablecloth that's a bit hard to track down? Don't forget the power of a custom solution. In fact, a little fabric paint can help you transform a light-colored round tablecloth into a true focal point for your dining room. Not feeling crafty? Another option: having a piece custom-made from the fabric of your choice, like this custom dotted tablecloth below.
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.
