How to Cover a Serpentine Table

Sepentine Table Linen

Serpentine tables are a great addition to a wedding or corporate event. They are fantastic to use for buffets in particular as they provide nice aesthetic appeal while allowing buffet lines to move faster with both sides being used. Ensuring that you can find tablecloths for serpentine tables is an entirely different story though.

The easiest way to cover a serpentine table (and perhaps the most readily available way) is using table skirting and a top cover tablecloth.

How to figure out the size tablecloth and skirting needed for a serpentine table:

In order to calculate the size tableskirting required you need to figure out the inner diameter of the serpentine, the outer diameter of the serpentine and the width. I’m going to be using the 2 different kinds of serpentine tables we sell as our example models.

Our wood serpentine table has an inner diameter of 60”, an outer diameter of 120” and a width of 30” so our formula would be: 60 inches + 120 inches + 30 inches (for right side of the table) + 30 inches (for left side of the table) = 240 inches of table to skirt. Since most table skirting is sold in feet, we would take 240 inches / 12 inches per foot = 20 feet. Therefore our 21 ft table skirt would work well at covering all sides from table height to floor of our wood serpentine table.

Since we need to also ensure our top of the serpentine is properly covered. We again would go to our serpentine dimensions. Since the serpentine table is 30 inches wide and the longest length is 120 inches in diameter we would need a table cloth to cover the serpentine table 30” x 120”. In the case of the polyester tablecloths that we sell that would work for the serpentine table top cover – a 60” x 126” table cloth would cover the table fully.

Our plastic serpentine table has an inner diameter of 55”, an outer diameter of 102” and a width of 30” so our formula would be: 55 inches + 102 inches + 30 inches (for right side of the table) + 30 inches (for left side of the table) = 217 inches of table to skirt. Since most table skirting is sold in feet, we would take 217 inches / 12 inches per foot = 18.1 feet. Our 17ft table skirt would be just a touch too small so we would opt for our 21 ft table skirt to cover all sides from table height to floor of our plastic serpentine table.

Since we need to also ensure our top of the serpentine is properly covered. We again would go to our serpentine dimensions. Since the serpentine table is 30 inches wide and the longest length is 102 inches in diameter we would need a table cloth to cover the serpentine table 30” x 102”. In the case of the polyester tablecloths that we sell that would work for the serpentine table top cover – a 60” x 126” table cloth would cover the table fully. We do have a 60” x 102” tablecloth but that wouldn’t provide enough coverage to ensure the tabletop isn’t showing.

Other ways that serpentine tables can be covered is utilizing spandex table covers and fitted serpentine table cloths in polyester. These will be generally more expensive as they are specialty shapes.

Serving Safe Food Outside in Hot Weather

Serving Food Safely Outside

Well, it’s officially feeling like summer weather in Ontario. We’ve had temperature highs up into the high 20s / low 30s over the past week with this week looking just as nice. This means prime opportunity to eat outdoors – whether that means hosting golfers poolside or on the patio or a large event such as a tournament, corporate picnic or wedding. Because the weather is hot, ensuring the food being served is safe for patrons is of utmost importance – and something that requires more attention and work then cooking inside a temperature-regulated establishment.

Here are some tips and tools to use when serving food outside in hot weather:

Before and During Transport:

1. Place raw meats in a separate cooler from prepared foods such as salads, raw vegetables etc. and make sure everything is well wrapped and kept separate from each other (i.e. meat wrapped together, poultry wrapped together, fish wrapped together)

2. All food that isn’t pre-cooked needs to be kept cold at 40 degrees F or below to prevent bacteria growth – use ice packs or ice, cooler and/or an insulated food pan carrier. Pre-cooked foods need to be kept at or above 140 degrees F – use a heated food pan carrier which allows you to hold the food at a consistent temperature.

3. Clean all fruits and vegetables prior to packing – you may not have an operating sink and proper cleaning supplies at your disposal.

When Serving:

4. Hot food needs to be kept at 140 degrees F or above – utilizing a chafing dishwarming pan or slow cooker.

5. Make sure there are plenty of serving utensils so each dish has a serving spoon or serving fork and no cross-contamination occurs.

6. Cold foods should be kept on ice to ensure they are kept at a temperature of 40 degrees or lower – you can utilize a Fill n Chill Party Table, a Fill n Chill Little Chiller or putting items on ice.

7. If you’re storing cold foods in a cooler, keep separate from beverages as the drinks will be accessed more frequently than the foods – leading to the food temperature rising.

8. All food shouldn’t be left out for more than 2 hours if outside temperature is between room temperature and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep a close eye on the temperature because if the temperature rises above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, food can’t be left out for more than 1 hour.

How many chiavari chairs can you put around a 72 inch round table

Chiavari chairs are one of the best event chairs you can purchase because they have a relatively small footprint. Because each chiavari chair has a small footprint it allows for more chairs to fit around a table and more tables and chairs to fit in the event room = more revenue for the event venue and/or party rental company.

resin chiavari chair measures 16 inches in width by 16 inches in depth while a wood chiavari chair measures 15 ½ inches in width by 15 ½ inches in depth.

To comfortably seat people around a 72 inch round table, 9 chiavari chairs fit around it.

71 Inch table with 9 Chairs

If you’re looking to maximize the space and the venue (and don’t care if guests have to straddle table legs – in the case of a plastic folding table), 10-11 chiavari chairs fit around a 72 inch round table.

71 Inch table with 10 Chairs
