Should I do assigned seating for a 45 person baby shower?!

Question: Should I do assigned seating for a 45 person baby shower!?
I am throwing a baby shower and 45 people have R!.S!.V!.P!.ed that they will be coming!. I will have 5 tables of 10!. Should I do assigned seating, or let people sit where ever they want!? It will be a sit down dinner!.
Thanks in advance!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I suggest a casual seating arrangement so that your guests feel comfortable to mingle; however, you may want to designate a 'head table' for the new mom and her family members!. This gives them the opportunity to get first glance at the gifts, as well as priority meal service!. It sounds like it will be a lovely affair!Www@FoodAQ@Com

This is actually pretty similiar to the size of my baby shower that was in a restaurant!. We let people seat themselves and that worked out quite nicely!. Friends could move around and visit a little without feeling like they were stealing someone's seat and nobody was unhappy with who they were sitting with!.

Good Luck!Www@FoodAQ@Com

If you want people to interact I would assign seats!. Otherwise you will have the mommy-to-be family sitting together, the daddy-to-be family sitting together and so on!. I like to have assigned seats so people can get to know other people!. And it also helps the people that might not know anyone besides the mommy-to-be to meet new people!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

First of all, how nice! And to have 45 people that are kind enough to RSVP, I would have to say,oh yes!. That's just about enough people that the "scrambling" around for a seat could be !.!.!.well!.!.ugly!.Yes, take a few minutes to make some cute place cards that you can design or find online at so many places!. It will help in so many ways!. No one will feel left out if not "asked" to sit with someone & as I said, it will surely cut down on the confusion of "grabbing seats"!.!.!.LOL!. I bet you're going to have a lovely day Do you have some fun silly games planned!? I know at my Daughter-in-laws Shower,we had a lot of fun playing the "what's in the diaper" candy bar game! Enjoy!Www@FoodAQ@Com

No these people are not in school they're going to a baby shower they probably would like to sit where they want to and talk to who they want to instead of you sticking them at a table where they don't want to talk to anyoneWww@FoodAQ@Com

No I would not assign seats ,Let people sit where they want and get to know each other!.Most people will only be seated while eating other wise they will be up mingling and checking out the gifts you got!.Congrats and Best of luck!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Let them sit where they want!. Conversations go more smooth when people get to choose who they sit by!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Let the people sit where they wish, less work for you to make name plates and they can sit with their friends!. etc!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Let them sit where they want, its a little more casual that way!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
