Table rentals for corporate events, weddings, and parties represent a great way to save money while ensuring a successful event. Renting tables means you don’t have to worry about setting them up, taking them down, or buying them for an event you only have occasionally or just one time. The Alleen Company discusses crucial items to remember when it comes to table rentals.
Party size determines how many table rentals you need, whether you have a weekend convention with 500 vendor booths or an outdoor dinner with reservations for 25. Booths at a convention may get one standard banquet table per booth, while the outdoor dinner could work better with farm tables and back chairs.
The layout and size of the site go into table rentals. A small conference room may only need five tables surrounded by chairs, while an outdoor wedding might require 100 banquet tables or stylish umbrella tables. The location also decides how the tables arrive at the destination. A building with a cargo door could need less set-up time versus an outdoor venue where staffers may carry tables some distance.
Food service is a factor in table rentals because you need tables to set the food on regardless of whether you plan a sit-down dinner or a grab-and-go food station. How much food you plan to serve and to how many people at once establishes how many tables to set aside for serving food to the masses. Food service may require special permits from government agencies, something The Alleen Company can take care of for you.

Tablecloths and Utensils
Rather than a grab-and-go food booth, you plan an event where people sit down and eat. That’s when you need tablecloths and utensils to go along with table rentals. If you have a casual event, paper table coverings and disposable flatware are appropriate. More elegant affairs call for cotton table linens and silverware. Table covers reduce your clean-up time.
