Proper Length of a tablecloths:
At a formal dinner the tablecloth overhang is luxurious and deep, approximately 10 to 15 inches, a drop that rests in the diner’s lap and is tucked under the table before the napkin is lifted.
When a formal dinner is served at a number of tables, usually folding tables with metal legs are rented, covered with tablecloths that extend to the floor.
Because the menu at a formal luncheon is lighter than a formal dinner, the overhang of the tablecloth is shorter.
At a formal tea, most of the guests stand, and the overhang of the tablecloth can be up to 18 inches deep.
In a hotel or private club, when tea is served from a folding table, the tablecloth hangs to the floor to conceal the metal legs.
