Tables that go the full Length

I just love the dramatic effect of a long reception table. The are simply stunning! Long tables allow interaction and over the table conversations. This seating arrangement will work well for indoor venues, and can have the same impact outdoors.
Depending on the size of your guest list, it would be a great idea for your family and friends to dine together, family style! Take a look...

Am I wrong to think that long tables seem impersonal? How do people chat? Catch up? Mingle?

I would think that they can mix and mingle the same way they would if the tables were round, square, or oblong. If there are 8-10 guests at a round table, they would more than likely talk to the 4 closest to them. Besides that, they would have to get up and move around to mingle. I think the same goes for long tables.

I absolutely love long tables! I have had the carnation cone picture saved in a binder for a while. =) That table is gorgeous!
