I want to have as many people as possible in our cafe, so we bought enough tables and chairs to make that happen! When I set all the table and chairs up, I was so pleased they all fit and I could walk around them. However, my daughters burst my bubble by telling me they never so so many things in one space! My oldest daughter (who has worked as a trainer in a restaurant) told me I did not leave any room for the serversto move freely, delivering food. Also I was informed most people don't like to sit on top of each other. Being a talkative (I KNOW-really talkative), friendly person, I thought this would be nice. My younger daughter pointed out that my gifts need to be more organized and not all piled together. In other words, instead of "winning!" like Charlie Sheen-I am losing! Back to the drawing board.
