How Do I Measure My Table?

To get the correct measurement for your table measure the length of the table and the width of the table.  

For the drop around the table, I normally recommend anywhere from a 7" -  10" around the table so you would need to double that to get the actual size of the table cloth you would need.

For example:

Length:  72" length of table plus 18" (9" for each side) = 90"

Width: 42" plus 18" (9" for each side)  = 60"

60" X 90" table cloth would be the finished size for a 42" X 72" table that includes a 9" drop around all four sides of the table.
