Standard size, solid colored plastic tablecovers measure 54" wide x 108" long and are designed to fit a rectangular banquet table (8 feet) with draping on all sides. Plastic tablecovers are great for most any event and come in a wide array of prints. Most printed table covering will match or compliment the plates, napkins, and cups.
Like ply's are used to describe the thickness of a napkin, tablecovers are measured with something called mill thickness. Mill thickness is the weight or thickness of the tablcover. Most tablecover mill thickness will be 1-1.2 mill thickness. Lengths will vary with prints and designs but will more than likely measure 54" wide by 89", 96", 102" or 108" in length. Some plastic tablecovers can be found with elastic on the edges. This feature is great for outdoor events where the wind might be a factor.
One of the advantages of using this party accessory is the fact that it comes in so many colors and can be coordinated with just about any party theme or pattern. Using a tablecover also makes clean up a breeze since you can just pick up the entire cover and toss it in the garbage after the party.
