Learn Your Linens
By Mallory Cohen
While the size of your table linens may not be at the top of the list of the things you think about when planning your party or wedding, it is a necessary part of your preparations. The linens add to the entire look of the room, and you want to make sure you choose the right ones.
Most banquet tables at weddings are 72” round. This should sit 12 people. The linens needed for this table are 132” round. As always you can go for a plain white tablecloth which is a classic. You could also go with a plain linen in your color scheme to tie the room together. If you want to add an extra touch you can go for a pretty, simple design. .
You will also need to get linens for your buffet and cocktail tables. A buffet table is normally a six foot or eight foot long rectangular shape. This requires a linen length of 90”x132”.
A cocktail table will be 30” round. The linen required for this is 90” round. Once again with each of these you can either go for white, or another color that fits your theme.
