How many of us have ever thought about the principles of setting a table? For the uninitiated, how you prepare a table is about nothing more than putting silverware and utensils on a table before eating, and if you are lucky, sticking a napkin under each fork. We may ask, what is so difficult or interesting about that? Yet if we stop to think about it, whenever we go to a major event, it is the way that the tables have been set that creates the look and tone of the hall.
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.)
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.
What does a metal sculpture artist do when he needs a new challenge? For me, that meant creating a new line of contemporary end tables. I will now take you through my reasoning for this endeavor, the idea process, and then the actual fabrication of a finished end table.
Large wicker picnic hampers can also work in this way too, although they do not provide a very uniform top surface. They do though look stylish, particularly when aged.
A half moon table is a table in the shape of half of a circle or oval. Essentially it is flat on one side (the side that is usually placed against a wall), and curved on the other. They resemble, not surprisingly, a half moon. A table if this type can be made of glass, wood or any other substance. They usually range in length from two to six feet and have a width roughly twenty five to forty percent of their length.
