To begin, you’ll most likely want to add a tablecloth to your table first. This tablecloth is sometimes called a table topper. You can match your tablecloth to the table skirt by matching the fabric or color but you don't have to, you can use a white or neutral color instead.  The great thing about using a table skirt is that your tablecloth does not have to touch the floor. For example, if you have a 6 ft table, you can use a  tablecloth that drops halfway, as the rest of look will be completed with a table skirt. Visit our Tablecloth Sizing Guide for more information.

For table clips, you’ll want to measure the width of your table edge first. Then choose the table clip from the shop based on the width of your table edge. Use one clip per 1 foot (12 inches) of table skirting. The outside of the clip will have a velcro strip that you'll use to attach the table skirt to the table.

If you have a rectangular table: For the table skirt, you'll want to decide if you want to skirt 3 sides or all 4 sides. To find out how many feet of skirting you'll need to know the measurements of your table, the width and the length.

For 3 sides, use this formula : 2W + L = Table Skirting Needed

For 4 sides, use this formula : 2W + 2L = Table Skirting Needed

For example, if we have a 6 ft table, that's 2(30) + 72 = 132 inches so you'll need to cover 132" or 11 feet. In

If you have a round table: You'll want to know the circumference of your table by using this formula C = πd where d is the diameter of the table. 

Width of Table x 3.14 = Table Skirting Needed
