    @queencharlotte04:  From what I recall, 60″ rounds comfortably fit about 8 people, so I’m thinking it would be okay to squeeze one more in the tables if you needed to.  Personally, I think it’ll be fine.  Not sure what everyone else thinks though! 🙂

    @queencharlotte04:  If I understand correctly, you’ll have 8 people at nearly all the tables and 9 people at one table.  I think it is fine to squeeze 9 on one table.  If you are doing a seating chart, perhaps the 9 people table could be smaller people (teens, kids, petites), but I wouldn’t really worry about it. 

    Personally, it would bug me to have the table cloth off for one table (not to the floor) and most likely you’ll have a few no shows, so you may end up with more elbow room at that table anyway.
