My venue is doing all the set up for no fee (I guess it’s just included in the package?) but they won’t do anything “complicated” as they put it, like arranging flowers.  I figure our flowers will arrive from the florist in vases and all they have to do is put them on the tables…not quite arranging so that should work!

This is what our venue is doing as well.  We hope that in addition to the general room set up they will also accept our deliveries (cake etc).

I have heard of the idea to make 1 box per table.  In that box include EVERYTHING that needs to go on that 1 table.  So the 8 napkins and their rings, the chargers, the centerpiece, the 5 votives, the table number, and the salt and pepper shakers! 

Then just have boxes numbered for each table.  That way you don’t have to worry they will forget to put a number on a table or something like that.
