Then consider the design and color. For the most part that is a very personal choice. However, the more intricate the design, the more colors used in the design, the more carefully you need to consider the colors in the room and the design of the place settings and the flatware in order insure they blend well. Be certain to ask about the dyes used in the design to insure the color will last.
In terms of producing the linen, most histories agree that men were given the responsibility of the heavier work carrying and lifting and transport of materials. Women were taught from a young age about the craft of linen. Many of the children and older women were in charge of less delicate jobs, while those with manual dexterity and stamina were given the task of making the higher quality fine Swedish table linens on one of the many looms.
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.
