Tablecloths

Getting the right linen is important to set the tone of your event. Choose your tablecloth hire by size, shape or colour with ease with our helpful guide.

Sometimes linen hire can be an afterthought for people planning events but often it’s the finishing detail that makes everything work. Linen for hire is especially important for events like weddings and banquets, but in reality any event where tables need covering will require some kind of linen.

It’s possible to rent linen in a whole range of colours and sizes, and a quick look in our catalogue will show just how much there is to offer. It can be a little bit daunting to know what size linen to get, especially if you’ve never hired it before but it doesn’t have to be that way.

On each product description we advise what type of table the linen will fit so you know if it is right for you. You can also go to our table hire pages to check the recommended linen for your size of table.

What do I need to know about tablecloth hire?

Most linen hire is measured in inches, so it’s important to measure your tables in that format before choosing what you need. Remember to include a bit for the “drape” between the table-top and the floor – the standard banqueting table is 30 inches tall.

Table linen is either square, rectangular or circular. With most tables it should be intuitive what to choose, but for oval tables we recommend the larger rectangular pieces of linen while smaller circular tables normally have a square tablecloth.

Runners and sashes will add an accent of colour to your table and chairs if you don’t want to go overboard, while napkins make a classy accompaniment.

What do I need to know about cleaning tablecloth hire?

When getting our linen hire ready for dispatch, we have it professionally laundered and pressed. To do this requires industry-specific machinery which means we cannot ask our customers to launder the linen they have hired before we come to collect it.

For this reason, we include the cost of laundry in our linen hire price. All we ask of our customers is that when they repack linen in the bags that it was shipped in, they make sure that it is dry and free of food debris. Linen which is returned wet or with food debris attached is much more likely to be unable to be cleaned and we have to charge replacement fees for any damaged or destroyed linen.
