Want to give a little excitement to an otherwise mundane reception table layout? Try mixing rectangle and circle or square tables together. This mix increases the visual design and interest of a space. Keep your selection to two kinds though; you don’t want it to look like a hodgepodge of random tables. Print out a floor plan of your venue and cut post it notes to the scale of the tables to work with the arrangement. You can place rectangle tables end to end if you are running out of space at a circle table or want a grand banquet like feel. As for the table décor, keep it the same. Centerpieces can be mixed high and low as long as they are similar arrangements.
