The Truth About Feasting Tables

Before I write anything, you must know, I am a LOVER of feasting tables. However, I do think it’s important, for the bride, mother, whomever, to know that while feasting tables can create interest and personality in a room and offer a different look overall, they can increase the budget.

Here are a couple of things you need to know before finalizing your layout filled with feasting tables:

1. What is their purpose? If you want people to have a full-plated meal with chargers and the whole shebang, you need to make sure that the tables are no less than forty-eight inches wide.  A standard rectangular table is either six or eight feet long and thirty inches wide.   In order to get a larger size you will either need to put multiple tables together or order specialty eight feet  by forty-eight inch wide tables. However, if you decide to use the thirty inch width tables, thefloral or décor in the center of the table should be no wider than five to six inches.

2. Linens – Feasting tables require additional linens. If you use the forty-eight inch wide tables you will either need to have specialty linens made or check with your linen company they might have a limited selection of them.  Either way, they need to be 108”x156”.  If you are unable to locate the oversized linens, then you will need to cover your feasting table with multiple cloths in order to ensure the linen touches the ground on all sides.  A forty-eight inch by sixteen foot table will require (4) 90×156” linens … yes, this can end up sounding like a mathematical equation, but it’s better than table legs showing at your reception – EK!

3. Floral/Décor – Visually, the feasting tables are spectacular!  They can create a stunning focal point at your reception. Whether you create a table scape of flowers or runners, it will always be a crowd pleasure. But, keep in mind, if you have a sixteen foot table you will need at least fourteen feet of table décor; so yes, this will mean a higher floral/décor bill.

4. Seating – Frankly, guests love sitting at feasting tables–on a standard table seating eight the standard distance across the table is sixty inches; at a feasting table the distance is only forty-eight inches, which makes for a much more convenient conversation distance. (another plus) When deciding how many people to sit at each table the rule of thumb is two feet per person.

A couple of helpful hints and things to consider when planning your layout:  Mixing feasting tables with a variety of other table shapes, or even just all feasting tables creates a much more interesting layout and will be well worth every penny spent.

    I had no idea these table should be so much wider than standard tables. What a difference that would make, though.
