There are many aspects of event planning that can be stressful. When looking at a blank table and seating chart, you may initially feel overwhelmed – but don’t fret! Grimes Events & Tents is here to help with all the information you need to properly plan your table and seating arrangement.
At Grimes Events & Party Tents, we offer a variety of tables to rent for your special occasion. When planning table rentals for your event, make sure to consider how much space you will have, how many people will be attending, and the aesthetic you want to achieve.
Round tables are generally able to seat more people meaning you won’t need to rent as many tables. Overall, this can cut down on costs. The most popular table rental is the 60” round table which seats 8-10 people.
Rectangular tables are considered trendier for events these days, giving guests the feeling of a big, family dinner.
When creating a table and seating arrangement for an event, keeping certain things in mind will ensure your guests are comfortable and have a great time!
Are you looking for a way to add the “wow” factor to your event? There are plenty of creative ideas you can try to surprise your guests! Use a mix of round and rectangular tables, a mix of differently sized tables, or use oddly shaped tables, like our serpentine table, to create an eye-catching display. You can also arrange your tables in any number of ways such as a U, a V, a W, a plus, an X, or an O. When arranging your tables, just remember to keep the venue and event’s intention in mind so that the tables do not interfere or cause unnecessary difficulty for your guests. Lastly, if the venue allows for it, try spreading the tables and seating across several areas. For example, you can place some in the courtyard, the gardens, or under a tent.
