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.
Tablecloth hire can be a bit daunting if you’ve never had to hire it before, but we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right colour and size for your needs.
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.
How does delivery of tablecloth hire work?
All of our tablecloths are professionally cleaned before being folded and put into bags ready for delivery. While every attempt is made to get our linen to you in perfect condition, we do recommend ordering a piece extra just to cover any unexpected eventualities.
Please note used linen needs to be returned in a plastic bag such as black bag or similar, dry and without food debris. It should not be placed into any box with any crockery, cutlery or glassware without already being in a bag. Linen returned in a condition which cannot be cleaned will be charged at replacement cost.
We deliver from Capital Event Hire to the whole of North and West London including to Docklands, Edgware, Ealing, Enfield, Harrow, Wembley, Hillingdon, Watford, Westminster and Middlesex. Check the carriage calculator on the home page to find out how much a standard delivery costs.
