Break Away From The Norm and Get Creative

Make your guests take a step back and WOW over your creative reception set-up by adding variety and visual appeal.  Those eight foot banquet tables aren’t just for your head table.  Put two of them together, long-ends touching.  Try using them or a mix of eights and rounds. Create shapes by putting your tables together in different ways.

Being open to different set-up ideas will help you fill the space within your venue whether you are limited in space and need to fit more guests in a small room or have a lot of room to work with and don’t want it to appear empty.

Factors that should influence how you decided to set up your tables are the venue size, centerpiece design you are planning on using, and how you want your guests to be able to interact.


Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and for taking such good care of the team, coaches, and support staff this past weekend. The trip went very smooth and the team had their first victory over Millikin in 40+ years! We really appreciate your hard work and wanted to extend our sincere appreciation to you and your staff that made everything possible. Thank you again for your hospitality.

I just want to say THANK YOU for everything. I thought the meetings went really well, the guests seemed to enjoy their rooms and stay, the food was fabulous, and we were well taken care of if we needed something. We didn’t have to want or wait on anything!! I have to admit I was very impressed!
