Understanding Seating Options

The first step in creating a well-organized event is understanding the variety of table shapes available. Let's explore some popular seating options for events and weddings:

1. Traditional Round Tables: These are a classic choice for weddings and formal events. They encourage conversation and are perfect for smaller gatherings.

2. Long Banquet Tables: These tables create a more communal atmosphere and are excellent for larger events. They can be decorated beautifully to create a stunning visual impact.

3. Cocktail Tables: Ideal for cocktail parties and receptions, these high-top tables promote mingling and provide a space for guests to rest drinks and appetizers.

4. Specialty Tables: Rising in popularity, these are going to be the nonconventional table shapes. Half Rounds (sweetheart table), Square and Serpentine tables fall under this category.
