Measure your table
Before you buy your tablecloth, be sure tomeasure your tableto determine the appropriate size At l 'Atelier d 'Eve we recommend a fallout of between 15 and 30cm.
For example, if you choose a fallout of 20 cm, measure the width and length of your table and add 40 cm to each measurement. Don't forget the extension cords if you have many guests.
