So what's an overlay? A fabric overlay is simply a smaller tablecloth or square table topper which usually goes over a longer tablecloth. They can be used on round or rectangular tables, so you can really get creative with your table decorations! If you re-use your tablecloths or rent them out, overlays can be used to hide any previous stains (it happens!) and you can pair them with a table runner in a variety of color combinations.

You can use square overlays for most tables or smaller round tablecloths for round tables. To find the right overlay, make sure you know your table size (width, length and height) so we recommend that you measure your tables before purchasing linens.

Here's the formula for overlays to use with a round table:

(Overlay Length - Your Table Diameter) / 2 = Overlay Drop

If you are measuring for a rectangular table, the formula is similar.

(Overlay Length - Your Table Length) / 2 = Overlay Drop

Your overlay will arrive folded so be sure to leave time to steam away any folds before your event! Here's a quick go-to overlays guide you can save for your reference to use with standard size 30" tall tables.
