Party Tips


Rule of Thumb for Seating:
When setting up your banquet room, leave a minimum of 60” between each table this allows for a 24” aisle with an 18” chair depth.
Table Seating Space Requirements

Facility Space Requirements

Event type Square Feet per Person
Cocktail Parties (stand up) 5-6
Cocktail Parties (some seated) 8
Dinner (using round tables) 10
Dinner (using banquet tables) 8
Cathedral Seating (in rows) 6
Dance Area 2-4

These formulas can be used when calculating space requirements for seating under tents. We would be happy to prepare a Party CAD (Computer Aided Drafting) drawing for your special event. This assists with layouts, spacing tables, buffets, dance floors, ect. Feel free to call any of Taylor Rental Allentown’s experienced rental staff with any question at (610) 398-7368.
