Keep in mind that if you push two tables together into a square you lose half the seating-i.e no one is seated along the sides that are together. 60 inch tables pushed together will seat 6 people only- 10 if you put people on the ends. Therefore you do use more tables.

Table linens can also be a problem unless you want to overlap table cloths, or have each table covered separtely.

If you want to be brave, and visble to your guests you could consider putting your table up on the stage.

You could do two or three long tables depending on the width of the room



you could do a combination of table arrangements (ignore the numbers-this was for 50 guests)


The easiest way to decide is to get the measurements of your room and your tables. Draw out the room to scale on a poster board. Cut post- it notes to scale to represent the size of your tables and play with the arrangement till you come up with something you like that seats your number of guests.

That’s a great idea to have the runner cover the joint!

Just make sure the service people know so they don’t place anything on the runner.

I think it would be FAB to have the party tables on the stage! I imagine sitting up there like royalty. 

You could hang lights back there to make it really romantic.

I second the idea of long tables.  I think it looks very intimate and guest have alot of interaction.

Not sure how the lighting is there but I love the beams, I can see some very pretty tulle hanging all over from there lol with lights in it too 🙂
