Tablecloths are a necessary item for many catering and restaurant services. Adding tablecloths to the room protects the wood or plastic beneath from liquid damage, stains and dents and can also cover up unsightly tabletops, allowing you to spend less on the tables themselves. Tablecloths are a great way to tie the room together into a uniform whole; a similar color scheme across the tables, buffets, podiums and any bars makes an official statement and looks much nicer. These rectangular tablecloths are available in many sizes to fit most rectangular tabletops. Widths are features ranging from 52 inches to 100 inches, depending on the size of your food service table. The cloth should fall about 6 inches on each side of the table, thereby effectively covering the tabletop while still providing ample leg room for your guests. When deciding upon the length of your tablecloth, it is a good idea to measure the table and then choose a cloth option that is 12 – 24 inches longer than the table.
