**an 8 foot**banquet

**table will**comfortably be able

**to**hold 8

**people**( 4

**people**on each side).

**You may**also be able

**to**squeeze

**an**additional 2

**people**by putting a

**seat**at each end of the

**table**.

Keeping this in consideration, how many can you seat at a 8 foot rectangular table?

Chairs are placed on both sides of the **tables**. **If** using **your** standard **8 foot banquet tables**, it is recommended to place 3 chairs on each side due to some guest wanting to turn their chair a little more. Placing 4 chairs on each side is perfectly fine **if** need **be**.

Secondly, how many people can you sit at a table? If rectangular and the table length is 5 feet, sits 4-6 comfortably; if it's 5 feet round, up to **8 people** comfortably; If rectangular and the table length is 6 feet, sits 6-8 comfortably; if it's 6 feet round, up to 10 people comfortably (if you use banquet chairs, you can squeeze 12 people);

Additionally, how long is a table that seats 8 people?

Most rectangular **tables are** between 36" and 40" wide. A **table** that **seats** four **should** be about 48" **long**. To **seat** four to six **people**, look for a **table** that **is** at least 60" **long**. For six to **eight** guests, your **table should** be at least 78" **long**.

How many can you seat at a 6 foot rectangular table?

If rectangular, and the table length is 6 feet: sits 6-**8** comfortably; if it's 6 feet round: up to 10 people comfortably (if you use banquet chairs, you can squeeze 12 people);
