Here’s how you can turn practical to pretty with a little ribbon, lace and fun!
The first step is to get your table chart ready. It is important that you have a clear idea of where everyone is sitting (your nani and dadi -up front and centre; that annoying neighbour who talks to much – right at the back 😉 ). This is will also help give you a clear idea of how many tables you will require.
Second, at the venue, place a seating chart at the entrance to let your guests know where exactly they will be seated.
Finally, ensure each table has a number to help guests locate their seats. There are number of innovative ways to customize your table numbers to blend in or enhance the decor.
