When choosing a banquet table, consider its use. Sixty inch and seventy inch round banquet tables are popular choices for seating guests throughout the banquet hall or event room. The round shape allows guests to easily communicate with each other across the table. However, rectangular tables are popular choices for seating guests at more casual events, and can be fitted with festive plastic tablecloths to help liven the party and quicken the clean-up. The best thing about rectangular banquet tables is that they can help to save space, since they can be lined up end-to-end for cafeteria-style seating. However, keep in mind that this does tend to crowd the room and also creates a more informal dining atmosphere.
