Round Tablecloth Sizing Widget
Need some help figuring out what a certain tablecloth size will look like on a certain table size? Check out our home-made, LinenTablecloth exclusive Tablecloth Drop Length widget.
It’s nifty and easy to use. Simply select the size of your table (or the size closest to yours), and then select the tablecloth that your eyes have been on. The final picture you see on the screen is exactly what it would look like in front of you. We even let you see what will happen if you pick a tablecloth that is too small or too big for your table.
We hope that the table linen sizing charts below will be a useful resource for you to determine the best choice for your table shape and size. For the purposes of the charts below, a standard banquet table height of 30 inches is assumed. Therefore, a drop of 30 inches would indicate a floor-length table linen drop.

To find the tablecloth drop (the length your tablecloth will hang down from the tabletop), you simply subtract the table diameter from the linen diameter and then divide by two. For instance, you have a 60 inch round table and have a 120 inch round tablecloth. Subtract 60 from 120 (120-60=60) then divide by 2 (60/2= 30 inches). This means a 120 inch round tablecloth will cover a 60 inch round table and drop 30 inches off the table, all the way to the floor.
If you know what size table you have and length of a drop you want, you can find out the tablecloth size you need by multiplying the drop length by 2, then adding the table diameter. For example, you have a 60 inch table and want a 15 inch drop (halfway to the floor), you multiply 15 by 2 (15x2=30) then add the table diameter (30+60=90) to get 90 inches, which means you need a 90 inch round tablecloth.
Standard sizes for common round tables:
- 48 inch round table: 70 inch cloth
- 60 inch round table: 90 inch cloth for a drop that goes halfway to the floor, 120 inch for a full drop. For the "square-on-round" look, an 85 inch square tablecloth is used on to of a 120 inch round tablecloth.
- 72 inch round table: 120 inch cloth, or a 132 inch for a full drop
