Ask Colin: Planning
The biggest reception blunder to avoid?
Spacing between tables is important and often overlooked. When faced with a large ballroom that holds five hundred and a guest list that numbers three hundred, your instinct may be to spread tables around to fill the space. That leaves a lot of desolate empty space between tables. I think guests should be kept closer together. No matter how large the space may be, I cluster tables close together, illuminate them, and leave any empty area around the perimeter in the darkness. The empty area disappears, and you are left with a party setting that is full of life, noise, and energy. Don’t worry about the waiters; leave one to two feet between the chair backs and they will be able to get through.
