I just cut out little strips of paper and wrote everyone’s name on each one. then i grouped them into family’s and who knows who…. then just started clumping people together until i got groups of 8-10. it was a little time consuming but was easier than i thought…

Oh well, you can either list the tables with names underneathe. ie…

Table 1
name
name
name
name

or list all the names in alphabetical order, and put their table number beside. ie…

name – table 3
name – table 2
name – table 12
name – table 3

if you dont’ have table numbers you could provide a map of the room, and inside the circles (representing each table), write peoples names. then they can either sit anywhere at the table, or you can have place cards at each seat.
normally it would be on a big board outside of the room, maybe see if you have access to an easle (sp?).

We made a spreadsheet using Google Docs. It listed each table and the people we wanted to put at it below. That way, when discussing where people should sit with my mom or my fiance, they could pull the spreadsheet up, too, and see what I was seeing. It was really helpful and easy to cut-and-paste to move folks around.
