Assigned dinner seating

aussiewonder | Aug 9, 2007 03:15 PM

I'm hosting a 30th birthday celebration @ a local restaurant for 20+ people. About 1/3 of the group are friends, 1/3 are their significant others/spouses most of whom are 'new' to the group, and the remainder are long lost friends coming in from all over the place. I would like for everyone to mingle, although understandably a seated dinner makes it a bit tricky, and was wondering what people thought of assigned seating? To achieve the objective of mixing it up, i would not be sitting couples next to couples.
Any thoughts?
