The floor plan for your event will be generated when your guarantee for meals is received. The final number of guest tables depends on your final guarantee. Ciociaro Club requires tables of ten guests. Your final floor plan must be returned to us no later than three business days prior to your event. The floor plan should include the following:
1. Final head count – number of guests including head table. Children must be included in the guarantee and are charged for as follows:
a. Children aged 3 years or less are no charge
b. Small children 4 years to ten years are charged at 50% of the contract meal price.
c. Persons eleven years and older are charged at the full meal price.
Final head count is required no later than 1 full week prior to your event. Breakdown of adults and children must be given prior to the event, at the time the guarantee is given.
2. Specified seating – please number all tables inside the circle and indicate number of guests per table just outside the circle – do all work on the floor plan given to you. Please try to maintain 10 guests per table. This assures guest comfort, ease of service and safe work practices for our staff. Alternate seating arrangements must be pre-approved by the Manager. The Club does provide table stands and numbers but we do NOT provide place cards or table menus.
3. Indicate high chairs or boosters at desired tables.
4. Indicate vegetarian meals at desired tables. (see special meal request section)
5. Specific room requirements or special room lay outs must be discussed and approved by the Manager at the time of contract completion.

7. Ideal table counts are somewhat flexible. We can usually add a few more tables or take a few tables out. However, please be aware that table numbers over the ideal affect the size of the dance floor and spacing between guest tables.
Reminder: The more elements you put into your event (coffee cart, ice cream cart, DJ, band, sweet/fruit table, cake table, gift table, etc), the less room available for the dance floor and guest tables. Also a mixture of round and long tables may have to be used. Specific spacing between guest tables is required to ensure safe food service. Please consult the Manager for further details.
