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.
If you have invested in table linens, you want to be careful how you clean, care for, and store them. Nice table linens can last generations if treated correctly. How you treat your linens will depend on what type of material they are. Some are actual linen made of a natural fiber, while others are blended with polyester for easier care. If your linens have a tag that instructs you on how to care for them, you are in luck. If they do not, then you are better off safe than sorry. Treat them as if they are real linen if you are not sure.
Table linens are mainly meant to provide protection to the table against mars as well as scratches. Therefore, table linens are part of the tables; they should, thus, be given more weight when it comes to selection. When considering purchasing a French table linen, you can justify your desire to purchase quality linen from either the ease of use perspective, economic point of view or from a decorative perspective.
