Table Selection and Seating Capacity Guide
There are a few things to consider when choosing what type of table to use for your next party. The first consideration is whether to use round, square or rectangular tables. Let’s discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each.
● Round tables- are the most popular choice for seating because they allow all of our guests to view each other creating a warm environment for conversation. They also allow for both simple and complex centerpiece designs. The primary negative of using a round table is if space is of the utmost concern as these tables take up more space than their rectangular counterparts. We offer round tables in the following sizes; 24′′, 30′′,36′′, 48′′,60′′, 72′′.
● Square tables- are increasingly becoming popular as an alternative to round tables. They offer all of the same benefits of a round table but in a look un-common to most events. We offer square tables in the following sizes 48′′ and 60′′.
● Rectangular tables- are the most space efficient table you can use at a party. However, except for the guests sitting directly across for you it can be difficult to have a discussion with anyone else at the table. When using rectangular table you also have to consider not using the head of the table unless you are using a 40′′ or wider table. Most rectangular banquet tables are 30′′ wide. This does not allow for a centerpiece much wider than 5′′ or using the heads of the table unless you lose a seat to the right and the left of the person at the head. These tables are very popular for rustic weddings where a long row is created by join gin multiple tables together. We offer rectangular tables in the following sizes 24′′x48′′, 30′′x72′′. 30′′x96′′ and 42′′x96′′.
