It’s really important that you get the measurements of your table and tablecloth overhang right as all of our fabrics are cut to order.
For rectangles you need 2 measurements; the width and the length.
For circles you need just the diameter of the table, which is from edge to edge making sure you go directly through the center of the table.
Ovals require 2 measurements. Across the widest point of the table will give you the width, and the length can be taken down the longest part of the table.
Measurements don’t have to be millimeter perfect, just rounded to nearest centimeter.
For more in depth details visit our measuring guide page.
We recommend that your tablecloth have an over hang of 20cm all round. This means adding 40cm to the length and width of your table size to get the required tablecloth size.
We found this to be optimal overhang as it is long enough to drape over your table and not so long it touches your legs when sitting at the table. This is only our recommendation but you can choose what ever over hang you like.
No. The sizes shown on our website is the tablecloth size you will receive.
Please make sure you include your own overhang.
The exception to this is when you are ordering a table protector – then we recommend to choose a size that will fit your table top.
Ordering a custom size tablecloth is easy.
Step 1: Order the next size up.
Step 2: At the checkout under the notes field, request the size you need it cut down to.
Note: Do not order a smaller length as we will have to request additional payment.
If colour or feel of the fabric is important to you then we highly recommend you order free samples of your favourite designs.
