Table Coverings – Linens and Paper

Mobile Version

Paper table coverings are an inexpensive way to decorate your tables with having to rent table linens. Paper coverings come in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and themes.

If you don’t want paper coverings, companies that rent table and chairs also generally rent a variety of linens. You can find anything from traditional damask to contemporary patterns, stripes, plaids, themed, and checkered patterns. They are also helpful in recommending your linen options.

If your event is casual, you can cover the table with a cloth that is long enough to drape over the table edge. It doesn’t have to reach the floor. However, here is what you’ll need for round and banquet tables so your linen drapes to the ground for a formal setting:

Table Size: Linen Size:
30” & 36” 90” round
42” 102” round
48” & 54” 108” round
60” & 66” 120” round
72” 132” round

6’ x 18” or 24” 10 ft banquet
8’ x 18” or 30” 10 or 12 ft banquet
4’ x 24” or 30” 10 ft banquet
5’ x 30” 10 ft banquet
6’ x 30” or 40” 10 ft banquet
8’ x 40” 12 ft banquet
30” square 90 inches
48” square 102 or 108 inches

Most of us just grab a fork and start devouring what’s on the plate (or least I do), but there is actually a method to setting a table.
