THE PERFECT TABLE SKIRT: HOW TO GET THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOUR TABLES

The Perfect Look for Your Tables

Table skirts are linens that are designed to cover the bottom part of your tables. These linear linens usually come with velcro for wrapping around the edges of a table. They can be made from high-quality plastic or linens such as tulle, polyester, Lamour satin, and more. Table skirts are perfect for dressing up your party tables and for creating a stunning look to your event decorations in an instant. By using table skirts, tablecloths that drop only halfway will not be a problem at all as the skirts will provide a complete appearance. No worries about your guests seeing the legs of your “not so new” furniture for table skirts will have them covered!

Measure it Right

Sizing is indeed important when it comes to decorating with table skirts, therefore, it is a must that you properly measure your tables. Know the length of your tables and the number of sides you are skirting. You might also want to first decide on the tablecloths that you will be using to mix and match colors.

If you are setting up round tables for your party, you can just simply get the circumference of your tables. You can do this by multiplying the diameter or the width of your table by 3.14 ( width x 3.14). The result will be the size of the table skirt you need.

For rectangular tables, getting the right size will be based on how many sides you plan to skirt. You may opt to skirt 3 or 4 sides depending on the setup and the size of the tables you will be using.

These formulas will let you know the right size of skirts for your rectangular tables:

3 sides skirting: 2W + L = Right Table Skirt Size
4 sides skirting: 2W + 2L = Right Table Skirt Size

The most commonly used rectangular size tables for weddings, banquets, and events are 8 feet long folding tables. In inches, the dimension of these tables is 96 inches long x 30 inches wide. You may also be using an extra-wide 8 feet banquet tables that are 36 inches wide or narrow tables which measure 18 and 24 inches. For narrow tables, guests would seat only on one side of the table.

Table Clips

Other things to consider when skirting tables are the size and types of clips you are using. Table clips are usually small plastic or metal that are attached to the edges of your tables. Their main purpose is to secure your table skirts in place. Most of them come with a strip of velcro for easy attachment. Very easy to use! Simply clip over your tablecloths and press the velcro strip of the skirt and the clip against each other and you are all set.

Measure the edge of your tables. The thickness will help you determine the correct clip size you need for the complete setup. Tabletops are usually 1 to 3 inches thick but still, it will be better to measure the ones you will be using as table thickness varies. 

This table skirt sizing guide with a suggested number of clips needed will help you get the right fit for your tables.

14 ft table skirts might be the smallest but they can still serve their purpose on several tables. Due to versatility, 17 ft tables skirts have been very popular. These medium length skirts will fit most tables without being too long or too short. On the other hand, 21ft table skirts might be very preferable. Being the largest, they can also provide coverage to tables that the previously mentioned sizes can cover. Your preference will always be the basis for your decision!
