Red, green and white are the colors of the Italian flag. Many pizzerias seek to give their customers a taste of Italy, not only with the cuisine, but with the decor, as well. One element of Italian-themed decor is green and white checkered tablecloths. When selecting green and white checkered tablecloths, make sure that they are the right shape and size for your tables. Round, square and rectangular linens are available to suit your table’s specific shape. Other than the shape, the most important thing to remember when selecting a green and white checkered tablecloth is to give eight inches of overhang on each side.
Eight inches of overhang is standard in the industry and makes the table setting more attractive. Just remember that is eight inches of overhang on each side, so you will need to measure the table’s length and width (or diameter for round tables) and add 16” to those measurements.
