FAQ: NYC Table Rental 

How much space should I leave between tables?

For rectangle tables(without service isle)- 52’’ generally table to table (including 16’’ inches chair to chair

For rectangle tables (with service isle)- 66’’ table to table (including 30’’ chair to chair for service)

Square tables- if in diamond position, roughly 24’’ corner to the corner of the adjacent table

Round table- about 60’’ table to table (including 24’’ chair to chair)

*for comfort all tables should be at least 30’’ from the wall


How many guests can I fit at a  table?

-The rule of thumb is between 18’’-24’’ inches per guest (depending on the shape of the table)


What size tablecloth do I need?

Depending on if the even it formal or casual there are different standards:

Casual events allow for 6’’-8’’ overhang on the side of the tables

Formal events allow for 15’’  overhand on the sides of the tables (lap length)

For rectangle and square tables:

Table Length + overhang 1st side + overhang 2nd side

Table Width + overhang 1st side + overhang 2nd side

For example, if you have the 74’’x 24’’ at a formal event:

74 + 15 + 15= 104

24 + 15 +15= 54

Roughly 104’’x54’’ tablecloth should suffice

For round tables:

Diameter + overhang + overhang

For example: 48’’ table + 15’’ +15’’ = 72’’ tablecloth
