When you are decorating, or re-decorating your home, you need to take care of the existing furniture in the various rooms, or even buy new ones in case you feel that something is missing from the general ambient. Sofa tables are great pieces of furniture that can turn a house into a real home in a jiffy.
Because they are curved on the side that extends out into the room, these tables take up less room than square or rectangular tables. They also do not have any sharp points, as square and rectangular tables do. This makes them much safer, especially in a home that has children. The sharp edges of rectangular tables are often at the head level of young children. This makes a table with a half moon shape a good choice for homes with children.
Half-moon tables are perfect for placing against walls, especially in areas people will be moving around in. They take up less room than a rectangular, square or circular table, and are much easier to walk around than those types of table. They also have no protruding sharp points for people to walk into. You usually do not want to put a half moon table in the middle of a room because it will stand out.
A final head table idea is for the bride and groom to sit at a table with their parents, the maid of honor and best man, and the spouses or dates of the honor attendants. This can be an excellent idea for a couple who has a very small wedding party or an unmanageably large one (the rest of the bridal party would sit among the other guests). It is also a very nice way to honor the parents of the bride and groom. This can be a lovely head table, as long as the newlyweds do not have a complicated family situation (ie, hostile parents or step-parents).
Once the overall look has been achieved, work can then begin on a finished version. Measurements must be taken and angles must be figured. There is a lot of math involved. Now each individual piece of steel can be cut and precisely fit to another. All connecting points must be hand welded and each weld must be hand ground. The last step is a chemical oxidation process to turn the steel either brown or black and then a few coats of clear paint are applied to protect the colored finish.
The classic head table is designed to keep the bridal party together, with the bride and groom in the center of everything. It works very well for this purpose, but there can also be some drawbacks to this arrangement. The biggest complaint is that the bridesmaids and groomsmen want to sit with their dates (and even more to the point, their dates do not want to be marooned at a distant table where they do not know anyone). If you have a lot of people in your bridal party who are married or seriously involved with a partner, it is understandable that they would wish to be seated together. (On the other hand, if your attendants are not in a committed relationship, they should think twice before asking someone to be their "plus one" for the wedding, as that person will definitely be spending a lot of time feeling abandoned, no matter what the seating arrangements are for dinner.)
