Tablecloths?

Hello everyone, I have been trying to make a tablecloth. I tried making a cube as the table and then making a plane for a tablecloth, but I don’t know how to make the tablecloth actually fall on the table using the cloth simulator instead of going through it. Any suggestions?

You need to define the cube as a collision object so the cloth sim will recognize it as such. Have a look at this link:
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:Manual/Physics/Clothes
and scroll down to the section about collisions. Actually, the whole page is worth reading…
