The first thing that people notice about your event is the room layout, which is often dominated by tables. With all of the different table types to consider, your head may be left spinning from the variety of choices. Round, square, rectangle, bar height – what will work the best? By mixing and matching your tables, you can get the best out of your event rental space and have a look that is uniquely yours.
Bar-height tables are great for a cocktail hour. Your guests can gather around them and enjoy hors d’oeuvres. Bar-height tables can also be placed perfectly around the dance floor so guests can watch their friends dance the night away or stand by and wait for their favorite song to come on.
Square and Rectangle Tables
Mixing in square and rectangular tables can be great for any event because it helps you define clear walkways. While square tables are probably best suited for seating your guests, rectangle or banquet tables have a couple of uses for whatever type of event you are planning. Rectangle-shaped tables can be best used for banquet-style seating, wedding party seating, self-serve meal serving, gift tables or even as a table for event information.
Using round tables can break up the sharp lines of the square tables when it comes to seating for your guests. They are the best tables for conversation to flow, so they fit in at any type of party and event. They are also the easiest tables to seat the most guests at comfortably and are the best for the least amount of centerpieces and table decor.
Letting your tables define activities throughout the night makes mixing and matching tables work for you. Using bar-height tables for cocktail hour, square, rectangle or round tables for seating, and long banquet or rectangle tables for a self-serve meal time or information table utilizes our tables to their utmost potential. At Event Rentals Unlimited, we have a variety of tabletop sizes and styles for your perfectly planned event.
