See [link] for a 4.5 x 3 foot tablecloth. I've also seen periodic table placemats and ties, but sadly, no napkins.

An alternative is to forget the tablecloth entirely and just build it into the table. See link. (WTAGIPBAN)

Or you could make an ancient greek table of the elements, with earth, air, fire and water on top.

match up the stains to their element equivalent - this could be educational.

I love that tablecloth. Reminds me of elements.

It could be the centerpiece of an entire line of nerd napery.

UB, set the table, take bets and whip away the tablecloth. Whatever the outcome, it will be a surprise to somebody.

You would have to be very careful how you folded this. It would be so easy to get the Alkali metals rubbing up against the Halogens, or Oxygen ..... that would be a Bad Thing.

Unfortunately, many of the heavier transuranides have fairly short half lives; before you know it the thing will be full of holes .....
