How Much Seating Do You Need for a Party?

One of the questions I get asked most is, "How much seating do I need for my party?" Depending on the size of your guest list, and the atmosphere you want to maintain during the evening determines the seating.

Dinner Party: I know this is self-explanatory, but for a dinner party you need to have enough chairs for everyone to be able to sit around the table.

House Full of People: For a birthday party or a more casual party where you want your guests to mingle, allow enough seating for half of your guests. This will encourage your guests to walk around and talk to others, and keep a sense of movement to the party.

Come and Go Party: If you are having a large party at your business that is come and go, then you will only need a couple of couches or benches. Don't worry about providing seating if you do not have the space. Most business owners want their guests looking through the merchandise and talking with staff.

Do you prefer people to mingle at your parties? Let me know what you think.
