Overhang of Table Cloths

How many inches is a tablecloth supposed to hang from the table? 6-8"?

It's personal choice, but either length is good. Sometimes you're handicapped and limited by the size of the talecloth you particularly want to use. Depends also on height of chairs compared to height of table too. Should come down and close the gap between top of legs when seated but not so long as to bellow over on top of one's lap.

Extremely large tables will probably look better with 8" overlap.
