Trend Alert: Seating Styles

Have you noticed that banquet tables are coming in all shapes and sizes?

Of course there are still round tables at Bar/Bat Mitzvah venues for 8-10 guests. But nowadays tables come in all shapes and sizes and many Mitzvah celebrations are mixing it up.

So what is the new “it” table?  Linzi Etzion of Linzi Events in Boca Raton, Florida is our guest columnist today and she has put it all in perspective for us.

Check out her descriptions below:

Standard Round Table and Banquet Chair

Reception halls normally will offer you a standard round table with  ballroom chairs.

The table can be dressed with a fun linen and the chair covered with a chair cover and sash to work with the table linen

Bamboo chiavari chairs can be used instead of the ballroom chair

Square Tables

For a more modern cutting edge feel Chiavari chairs are best used with square tables.


Chiavari chairs can be rented in gold, silver , white, mahogany as well as fun primary colors



Royal Table

The Royal table is a  8′ by 4′ banquet table which seats up to 12  guests.  Floral decorations are set across the length of the tables creating a beautiful look. Royal tables are often joined together to create long lines of table seating.


In this picture above, white leather Valencia chairs from Classic Party Rental were used


When designing your space you can also combine tables. We have done Royals with Square tables and Squares with Round tables to create a fun eclectic look for the reception.

We want to thank Linzi from Linzi Events for her valuable insights and tips. Be sure to check out more of her fabulous events on her Website.
