The altar in the Basilica St. Giovanni Laterano. Above the altar is a plaque of the last supper and encased behind this is a piece of the table used for the last supper of Christ. It seems like everywhere you go in Italy someone has a small piece of this or that from back in ancient times. The place is just steeped in ancient history. It's hard to absorb when you come from a country as new as America. I Love Italy!!!
I like this set up for the desks in the classroom because none of the desks are side by side, allowing each student have their own personal space. When desks are side by side, or students share table space, it is much easier for bickering to occur over one's personal space. This way, students cannot put their objects on others desks. -Michael Hecht
A folding table, like this one spotted on Jelanie Shop, is a great solution if you have room for a smaller table but want a bigger one for dinner parties and special occasions. You could even fold the table up completely and tuck it into a corner or behind other furniture when not in use.
whiteboard tables. (can use sherwin williams 'sketch pad' dry erase coating to incorporate color rather than white...@ http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/products/catalog/sketch-pad-dry-erase-coating/)
Instead of numbers to assign guests their tables, use names of seashells. Each type of shell represents a different table. Arrange seating cards and shells on aqua fabric to give the impression of water. On each table, display a card with the shell's name, or fill a bowl with those shells as a centerpiece.
