Fall Tablecloths, Everything You Need To Know
Ready for a fall tablecloth to go with your cool autumn decor? Your fall tablecloth doesn’t have to be printed with pumpkins or leaves. Choosing the right fall color and fabric can provide functionality while also celebrating the fall season.
Top selling fall colors
The top selling fall colors every year are burnt orange, orange, tan, toast, natural, ivory, copper, espresso, chocolate, olive, goldenrod and cornsilk.
Our Poly Premier fabric offers all of these colors as does the Majestic tablecloth.
How to measure and how to determine tablecloth size?
1st You will need to decide how much of a drop you would like.
It can be anywhere from 6" to 12". A drop less than 6" will look too short. I find 8" to 10" to be an ideal tablecloth length, long enough to look beautiful, not so long that the fabric is on your lap.
TIP - Sit at the table and measure from the top of the table to just above your lap for the perfect drop.
Once decided, measure the width and length of the table. Add the drop twice to the width and twice to the length of the table. For example:
Table length: 60”
Desired drop: 8”
CALCULATIONS: 2 X drop: 2 X 8” = 16”
Tablecloth width: 42” + 16” = 58”
Tablecloth length: 60” + 16” = 76”
Tablecloth size to order: 58” X 76”
For a 10" drop on a 42" x 60" table, the tablecloth size is 62" x 80".
