All these considerations can be summarized into two major things that you need to do when purchasing a linen for a table; first you are required to protect or cover the table and second you are supposed to be more creative and come up with something very attractive, congenial as well as well as a peaceful place for your meals. The primary and basic goal is covering or protecting your table; this is, in fact, the main purpose of a table linen-protecting the tables finish.
When thinking about buying your first set of table linens and you begin your search, it immediately becomes apparent that there are two approaches. The first is to simply go out and buy whatever is available. This may work in the short run, but beware; you may soon regret your purchase within a few washings. The hem may begin to pull out. The cloth may pull out of shape. The color may fade and change to a hue you can no longer tolerate. Unless you are going to use the linens for a picnic or two this is a waste of time and money.
A properly arranged tablecloth for a formal event should hang at least 10 to 12 inches evenly around the table. It can go to the floor, but cannot touch the floor. Casual arrangements are suitable at a 6 to 8 inch drop around the edge of the table. The shape of the table should match the shape of the cloth so a round table should have a round shaped cloth. The main crease in the cloth should run down the center of the table. Layering is a popular practice accomplished by laying a longer colored cloth on the table with a shorter one of different color on top. Top a dark cloth with a white lace or shear cloth of the same size. Table skirts that gather and attach at the edge of the table falling to the floor, are suitable for formal events like banquets or weddings. Skirts are easily rented from local linen services. Matching or contrasting napkins can be placed folded to the left of each plate, on the plate or folded in interesting shapes and placed on the table setting or in a glass.
