The Thing About Banquet Tables

The best conversations always happen around the dining room table. After bellies are full and hearts overflowing, good thing happen. Banquet tables allow the togetherness of a dinner at home, to translate into a dinner for 200. With a neighbor on the left, right, and at least three ahead, the conversation is sure to never lull. Consider banquet tables as an alternative, or an addition to the traditional bridal rounds. Whether you have an outdoor or indoor wedding, banquet tables are a beautiful way to encourage conversation among guests.

Things to think about: Banquet tables can be tricky to navigate around when space is limited. Choose a table length that is appropriate for your reception space and everything is sure to flow perfectly.
