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.
For big events like wedding receptions and banquets, linen hire is almost a prerequisite. Not only will it cover plain wooden banqueting tables, but it is possible to rent linen in all kinds of colours to match themes and aesthetics.
We offer a wide range of linen in various sizes, to ensure you can find what you need to match your table. While it can feel difficult to know which linen to match to which table, we’ve done everything we can to make your linen hire experience as good as it can be.
Each piece of linen has its own product page, and on that page you will see details of what size table it will fit to help you ensure you choose the right one. You can also check our tables in our furniture catalogue for suggested linen sizes there.
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.
Before we send out our linen for hire, we have it all professionally laundered and pressed ready for delivery. This process requires industry-specific machinery which means its unfair to expect any of our customers to launder linen before we come to collect.
It's for this reason we include our laundry costs within the linen hire price itself, and do not charge a send it back dirty service. The only thing we ask of our customers is that linen is dry and free from food debris when repacked in shipping bags. Linen which is returned wet or with attached food debris is much more likely to be unable to be cleaned and we have to charge replacement fees for any damaged or destroyed linen.
