Table And Chair Rental Tips In Miami And Fort Lauderdale; Timeless Charm Vintage Rentals
No event is complete without the right tables and chairs for your occasion. Perhaps the venue is selected, the date is set, invitations are ready, now it’s time to select the best tables and chairs. The venue may already have tables and chairs, but maybe not enough. Or you may be looking for some that make a statement. This happens all the time. Here are some tips to help you along your journey for selecting the best tables and chairs for your event.
One of the reasons the venue may not have the tables and chairs you are looking for, is storage. This is why it often makes sense to find a trusted rental company that can quickly deliver and collect once the event is over. Also, consider that there will be costs associated with the pickup and delivery. Additional charges can apply for early deliveries or overtime pickups.
Some venues may have storage space that will allow rental companies to leave the tables and chairs the day before your event and pick them up the next day. If your venue has strict guidelines, this may cost more. For example, if you need to have all of your rental items off-site before midnight, this will be an added expense.
Does the event venue provide a team to install and dismantle the tables and chairs for you? Make sure you keep this in mind and if necessary, select a company that will assist with you with setting up the tables and chairs or coordinate with the venue staff so they can assist.
There should be a designated person (your event planner, food service provider, friend or co-worker) that should be responsible for your rentals. This person should count the number of tables and chairs when they arrive and count again when they are going to be picked up. Sometimes, when a chair moves to a different area during the event, it can be left behind. Having someone who can be on top of this will help prevent you from incurring replacement costs.

Which Table Rental Do I Choose For My Event?
Today we want to talk to you about the most popular ones and tell you about their advantages so that you can take them into account if you are organizing a special event. Not all table types lend themselves to all styles of celebration so consider the following options:
1. Round Table
Advantages: encourage interaction between guests. And they are very favorable in events where people who have to interact.
Disadvantages: their main disadvantage is that they take up a lot of space. Therefore they are not recommended in events with many attendees.
2. Square Table
This type of table stands out for its aesthetics and originality, and the main reason is that it forces an even number of diners to sit down and it is not very versatile, contrary the round table. The most welcoming square table size can integrate four, six or eight diners, no more.
One of its main features is that it is suitable for more intimate or family gatherings.
3. Rectangular Table
In case you need only one table, this is the most common type used. It occupies less than the round and square, so it is recommended for large weddings and, above all, venues with space constraints. Depending on the size, it can fit up to 30 people.
The disadvantage is that if its size is very large, it isolates guests limiting interaction between each other and the ability to see each other’s faces.
This table type is widely used in formal meals.
4. Oval Table
It works the same as the rectangular one, but has the distinct characteristic of having both ends in a rounded shape. It is not very common for big events because it does not allow to add other tables.
If its size is wide, the same thing happens as in the rectangular one: you can’t have a uniform conversation. If it’s small in size, it has the advantage that all the guests can see each other and have a common conversation, the same as in round tables.
5. Imperial Table
This furniture is designed for a minimum of 50 people and is usually used in large wedding events, for its elegance and decoration. Another advantage is that this type of table can be served on very quickly, which guarantees an excellent dining experience.
Nowadays, this is the name given to any table with rounded ends and straight sides, that is to say, its shape is rectangular but closed in a round shape in order to occupy its ends and take advantage of all the space and dimension of the table. This offers an additional advantage: all guests are accompanied on the right and left, as there are no corners.
It is one of the most widely used table types for business and institutional events and for meals where only one table is set, especially for 30 guests or more.
6. U-Shaped Or Horseshoe Table
This type of table is used on rare occasions: large banquets (without occupying the inside) or when you want to seat everyone at the same table as the hosts (you can occupy the inside).
