Choose the right size to suit your design. As with any form of consumer purchase, it is always very important to ensure that you do not end up purchasing table linens that are either too small or too big for your table, leading to potential problems such as the linens either not covering the whole table or being so big that they actually reach the floor leading to everybody potentially tripping up. Ensure you measure the size of your table well in advance of purchasing any table linens.
The French table linens are of many types and they are normally classified by the type of fabric they are made from, the shape, as well as the purpose they are designed for. Based on the shape, the table linens can be categorized as rectangular, round or square to suit the three most common forms of the tables. According to the fabric, the French table linens are, for instance, classified as casual dining table linens made from cotton; they are meant to cover tables for meals or serve as a picnic blanket. Linens made from silk or lace are normally used for special occasions such as weddings or high-end dining establishments. Irrespective of the material from which they are made from, these quality made linens still maintains quality; they are more durable compared to any other table linens. They come in many different colors as well as designs.
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.
