I’d go with numbers and not names with quotes— you can still put quotes on them if you want— guests often have a negative reaction when they can’t figure out if the Poe table is next to the Hemmingway table or the Dickens table or what that means if you’re supposed to be at the Tolstoy table. Numbers are nice and logical, and if you’re standing near table 4 and need to go table 9, it’s pretty easy to figure out the directions.

@fishbone:  +1!

Or if you have to go with non-numbers, alphbetize them so at lesat there’s somewhat of a rhyme or reason to where the tables are located.

If you’re setting up a small bar in the dining area, putting your “last” table next to the bar can be seen as a plus by many!!! Our Table 9 actually said “we thought we were at the bad table till we saw how close to the bar we were!!”
