We generally recommend placing orders at least 6 months in advance to ensure availability, especially during May-September event dates as these fill up fast. However, we may be able to provide linens next day for the last minute reservations depending on availability. To better serve all our customers, and to ensure you receive the colors and sizes you want, we recommend advance reservations. When this is not possible, we will accept last minute orders based on availability. Every effort will be made to expedite these orders.If booking one of our packages however (we set up and take down and provide all linen and decor customized to your requirements), we advice that you book us as early as you can as we can only perform a limited number of set up/breakdown per week-end, these services tends to fill up pretty fast.
When you schedule a showroom viewing, we go over the numbers based on your selections after viewing our items. We will then provide you with a quote. Quotes do not reserve items or services and due to the number of quotes we provide we do not keep track of quotes. You must confirm a quote by making the required deposit in order for items to be reserved. We also require our Rental Terms and Service Agreement to be read, agreed to and signed along with the required deposit to ensure a confirmed booking.
You may request a quote on our website through the Get Quote page and you will receive an e-mail quote detailing your selections.
Once you receive your quote, please review and make changes as appropriate, contact us for questions that you may have on your selections.
Once clarified, return to the Get Quote page and make your final selection, in the comment box, tell us that it is your final selection, what percentage deposit you will like to pay(minimum for a deposit is 25%, full payment is due if event is 2 weeks or less away from payment date).
You will receive an e-mail with a pay request via PayPal; you can pay with any major credit card, you do not necessarily have to have a PayPal account to do this. You can also mail a check or pay via e-mail money transfer to our email address. E-mail back the signed/initialed service agreement we would have sent you and you are all set!!
All our items have colors, sizes, materials etc well detailed on our site. You should be able to make a selection with this. If you will require a touch and feel to ensure a perfect match with your colors, you can request us to mail fabric swatches in your color family and we will gladly do that. If you desire we can deliver these items to you for a stress free booking process!
Please note that selections or quotes without a deposit or signed rental terms/service agreement are considered “inquiries” and DO NOT confirm booking.
The size of the table linen you need depends on the size of the table you are using and the desired look you are trying to achieve. Please contact us to guide you in the choice of the linen size that works best for your tables.
Ask your event location for the sizes of their tables and types of chairs you will be using. As an added guide, we have included this sizing information below:
First, you need to choose the amount of drop you’d like to have. The standard round banquet table is 30” high, so to drop halfway to the floor you need 15”. If you want to cover a 60 inch (5ft) round table and have the standard 15” drop, you will need 60” to cover the table-top, then an additional 15” on either side of the table: top = 60”, drop from edge of table = 15” (X 2 – two edges.) So you will need a 90” round tablecloth to cover your 60” round table and still have 15” of drop.
Now, if you want the tablecloth to drop all the way to the floor, you will need 30” drop instead of 15”. Formula: top = 60”, drop from edge of table = 30” (X 2 – two edges), for a total length of 120 inches.
* 48” (4ft) round table needs 70” cloth
* 60”(5ft) round table needs 90” cloth or for an old style “square-on- round” look, use a 120” round tablecloth with an 85” square tablecloth on a 60” round table
* 72”(6ft) round table needs 120” cloth.
Square and Rectangular Tables
The standard banquet table is 30” high, so to drop halfway to the floor you need 15”. So, if you want to cover a 55 inch square table and have the standard 15” drop, you will need 55” to cover the table-top, then an additional 15” on either side of the table: top = 55”, drop from edge of table = 15” (X 2 – two edges.) You will need an 85” square tablecloth to cover your 55” table and still have 15” of drop.
Rectangular Tables must take into account both the length and the width.
* 6’ (6ft) rectangular banquet table needs a 60×102 cloth. (15” uniform drop)
* 8’ (8ft) rectangular banquet table needs a 60×126 cloth. (15” uniform drop)
* 90x 132 cloths: when used on a 6’ (6ft) banquet table the cloth will drop all the way to the floor.
Use this formula for any size table: add to the diameter of the table 30” for a standard drop. For a drop that goes all the way to the floor add 60”to the diameter of the table top.
To ensure you receive the correct size chair cover we need the following information: whether the chair you will be using is a metal folding chair, a wooden folding chair, or a stackable banquet chair. Most facilities classify their chair as a standard. We encourage you to get measurements in order to determine the best fit. You will want to measure how wide the back of the chair is at its widest point and how tall the chair is from the very top of the back of the chair to the floor.
Our chair covers are designed for armless chairs only. We however carry the universal chair covers which may work for chairs with arms, we advice you take out a sample to try for fit.
We have over 27 colors available to match your color family in our sashes, napkins and overlays. Tablecloths and skirts also come in a large array of colors to complement your event. Many of our chair covers are also available in a variety of colors for an additional fee. Tell us what you are looking for and we will try to help you find it!
The colors/pattern we carry are:
White | Black | Ivory | Silver | Beige | Chocolate | Dark Brown | Pink |Fuchsia | Dusty Rose | Red | Burgundy | Eggplant | Purple | Lavender | Baby Blue | Turquoise | Royal Blue | Navy Blue | Tea Green | Pine Green | Sage | Hunter Green | Lemon | Marigold | Peach | Pumpkin |Gold| Black on White Damask
We can prepare a sample pack of the items that require fitting/sizing for you to take to the venue and try on different looks to ensure proper fit (a refundable deposit applies when picking these items up).
You will have the opportunity to see these during initial consultation. All of our items are available to view on line, but we also know the importance of touching and feeling the fabrics. Let us know the colors of your event and we can put together some samples for you. For convenience we can mail you a swatch to ensure an exact match. Please view our online catalog for the colors we carry.
You can pay cash if paying in person.
Payment by check can be mailed or paid in person. Please make all checks payable to Beautiful Linen Rentals. Credit Card payment is equally accepted via PayPal (paypal fees applies). Once indicated we will send you a payable invoice you can pay with major credit cards or with your PayPal account. E-mail money transfer is a popular payment option as well.

If you wish to pay by check or money order, your final payment must be received in our office three weeks prior to your event.
Our linens are steamed prior to rentals. However, some wrinkles and fold lines are inevitable due to the packing procedure for transportation. Our spandex lines are wrinkle free. For non spandex items, for a completely wrinkle and fold line free look, then steaming it at the venue during set up is the best, STEAMERS ARE AVAILABLE FOR RENT!
Pick up is 2 days before the event and return is the next business day. For a Saturday event, pick up is Thursday evening and return Monday evening, if a business day. If your event is outside of the province we allow earlier pick up, let us know and we will try and work out an agreeable date. If you have a special requirement for pick up and delivery let us know at time of booking, we will try our best to accommodate your request.
In the event that you need to reschedule your event, please notify us immediately of the date change. You have up to ONE year to reschedule without losing your deposit.
