  • Open. Dh and I are both from families that have always had open seating. FIL always leads a prayer but he's as likely to be seen sitting next to the kids as at the head of the table. :)

  • YES! We are old school. Hubs gets the head and the second oldest man gets the other. Women to the right and we sit boy girl. I do the dinning room dinning formal.

  • Depends...if we are hosting, we sit closest to the kitchen for serving purpose- the rest is open seating, lefties seated in lefty spots....

  • I don't do place cards, I think that's a bit pretentious, but I do tell people where to sit. DH get the head of the table because it's our house, I need to sit at his right, because that's the most convenient to the kitchen, for getting up to serve another course. One son is left handed, so he need to sit on the other end of table, so he doesn't clank elbows with a right handed person next to him. Works out fine.
