Time for a Guessing Game

Our Banquet Manager, Liz Dube, thought you might enjoy a guessing game based on this photo of the wedding that took place in the Grand Ballroom on December 21, 2013.  Can you guess how many of the following items it took to set all the tables in the Grand Ballroom for this event?

Total Spoons (soup spoons and teaspoons)

Total Forks  (salad, entrĂ©e, dessert and serving)

Total Glasses (water and champagne flutes)

Whoever comes the closest without going over will win a package of goodies from the Hawthorne Hotel including a gift certificate.

Some helpful hints:

1.  Our Grand Ballroom is usually used for weddings between 125 and 190 people.
2.  We use tables set for between 7 and 12 people depending on the size of the wedding, the needs of the wedding couple, and other factors.
3.  There are five tables set for this wedding that you cannot see in this photo.

A couple of simple technicalities:
  • We will close this contest on January 31 at 11:55 pm.
  • You need to guess all three things, Spoons, Forks and Glasses.
  • By the way, employees of the Hawthorne Hotel are not eligible to enter this contest.  Sorry folks!
Good luck and start counting!

I hope to see you here.
