Using Tablecloths on Cocktail Tables

What’s a reception without cocktails? And obviously, to have a reception with cocktails, you need cocktail tables. But how do you use tablecloths with cocktail tables? We’re going to show you.

Here is a quick guide for a cocktail table that is 30 in. in diameter and 41.5 in. tall:

If you want the tablecloth to pool a bit: 120 in. round tablecloth

If you want a perfect fit: 118 in. round tablecloth

If you want a loose wrap: 132 in. round tablecloth


Check out the pictures below for more information and examples!

  1. Hello,
    I like the look of the photo labeled cocktail 7 (green with burlap tie) . For a 30” round 42” height, what length of tablecloth should I get?

    1. Hi Michelle,

      That is a 120 in. Round Polyester Tablecloth Reseda, which is also the size I’d recommend for your cocktail table. When you’re using a sash we generally recommend increasing your tablecloth size by 1 so that you don’t see the legs of the table.
