For ROUND tables:

24″ = 2                30″ = 3               36″ = 4

42″ or 48″ = 5         60″ = 8 (10 children)

72″ = 10

For OBLONG tables: (about one person per foot)

4′ = 4            6’= 6          8′ = 8

 

Answer these two questions, “What size is my table?” “Do I want it to hang all the way to the floor?

Table size         Floor Length        Lap Length

30″                     90″                         54″ x 54″

48″                     108″                       90″ or 72″ x 72″

60″                     120″                       90″ or 84″ x 84″

72″                     132″                      108″ or 90″ x 90″

6′ x 30″              90″ x 132″               60″ x 90″

8′ x 30″              90″ x 156″               60″ x 120”

Not necessarily.  If you choose floor length tablecloths then definitely not.  Table skirts are great when you want to leave one side of the table open, like for a DJ, a buffet, or registration tables. One decorating advantage to using table skirts is that you can use simple table clothes and add some flare with ruffled, sequinned, textured, patterned, or contrasting colored skirts.

To determine space requirements, you need to know:

How many people will be attending? And, What activities are planned – seated dinner, cocktails,t games, dancing, ceremony etc.

Let’s do the math…don’t be scared! Generally, to determine the number of people that can fit in a space:

For seated dinner – divide the total square footage by 8 for oblong tables and 10 for round tables. This will give you the maximum occupancy.  (Dividing by 10 and 12 respectively is a more comfortable). To look at it another way, you need about 10 – 12 sqft per table set up.

For classroom style seating (chairs on only one side of the table and no food service (besides snacks) – divide the total square footage  by 8.

For spectator/theater style seating only – divide the total square footage  by 6.

These general guidelines don’t take into consideration things like structural columns, uneven floors, kitchen access points, and other traffic flow situations.  Neither does it consider other activities that may be taking place.

Here are some guidelines for other activities:

Bar = 100 sqft.               Food Station = 100 sqft

Buffet = 400 sqft           DJ = 100 sqft

Wedding Ceremony = 6′ per person

Dance Floor = 4′ per person

Cocktail Reception = 8′ per person

No, sorry.  We do not rent tents, stages, or bounce houses at this time.  However, we will gladly direct you to some folks that do rent those items.
