How To Measure Correctly For Your Tablecloth.
Oval or Rectangle Tables How To Measure:
1. Measure Top Length of Table. Add 16" to it.
2. Measure Width of Tabletop. Add 16" to it.
3. These 2 measurments are your tablecloth size.
The reason you add 16" to each measurment of your table is to allow for an 8" overhang on all sides of the table. 8" is the average drop, that way when you pull your chair up to the table and sit down, you don't have a tablecloth laying in your lap !
