Then go around that half of the tent naming adjacent tables (as you have done already) to end at the other side of the tent. Even though there is entrance on all sides of the tent, for me, I think I would think the gray box and dance floor at the top of the picture would be the front of the tent, and where I would expect the lowest table numbers to start. 

With all that being said, with only 15 tables I don’t think anyone is going to have too much trouble finding their table, as long as you don’t have table 1 randomly next to table 10, for example.

That floor plan looks great! Don’t stress over table numbers. I have been to way bigger weddings with more tables and finding ours turned into a fun little scavenger hunt. Let your bridesmaids/groomsmen have an idea of your plan by showing that to them and they can help point people in the right direction if they ask them about it!

turtle9748:  The only thing I see that could be confusing is that to the right of the dance floor, the tables are numbered in rows (horizontally) and on the left side they’re numbered in columns (vertically).  I would make the sides consistent.  PPs are right in that with 15 tables, it shouldn’t be too difficult for your guests to locate their tables, but some people could see the way tables 1-7 are numbered and assume that table 12 is to the left of 11, when in fact that is table 14.
