Classic Black and White Reception Decor

Favorite layout: Mix your tables. As a guest, if you walk into a room with 30 round tables, the party is over in terms of what you absorb. If you walk into a room, look to the left and see a long table, and look to the right and see a round table, and look across and see a square table, then you're going to feel more inclined to hunt and gather in a space where not everything is the same.
