If you are planning a large event such as a wedding or milestone birthday, choosing the right table arrangements can be a challenge. You need to keep Auntie Betty away from Auntie Maud as they had a falling out 40 years ago, and you need to keep the children entertained and happy. The good news is that there are a number of ways to position your table and your guests so that everybody gets along and has a good time.
Scattered Round Tables
Round tables are extremely versatile and can work very well when you want to create a social atmosphere. Not only do round tables encourage people to talk to each other (sorry Auntie Betty and Auntie Maud), but they also allow easy access to the dance floor.
Two Long Tables
When you need to seat a lot of people in a small venue, rectangular tables can work out very well. You can either use two very long tables, or a number of rectangular banqueting tables pushed together. This configuration also makes it easier when you need to seat certain people away from one another.
One Long Curved Table
If you are looking for a unique look that breaks all the rules without presenting you with a table seating nightmare, curved tables are one of the most popular trends right now. Designed to look like a gently winding pathway, they really can create the wow factor. Given the length of the resulting table, this table configuration is usually best reserved for outdoor venues.
Multiple Rows Of Tables
When you would like your guests to sit closer together, but you don’t want to use round tables, multiple rows of rectangular tables encourage more social interactions. Simply work out your table plan on a piece of paper or why not try our online seating planner here. You will need to take into account the size of your room, where fixed features such as the bar and DJ will be and also exits and entrances of the room.
Japanese Style Seating
If you want to rid yourself of tables completely, why not create an ultra-relaxed atmosphere with Japanese style seating on the floor? Low tables and cushions make for a cosy setting, but may not be the best scenario for elderly aunts, especially if they are already in a bad mood being in the same room as each other!
