Create Tables for Your Poetry Cafe

By Beth Newingham on April 30, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

To make guests feel like they are truly in a small coffee shop for our Poetry Cafe, we choose to use TV trays, which are small and can be placed close together to help create the cafe feeling, as opposed to larger tables.

It is important that the audience is close to the readers, so TV trays work best. We buy black plastic tablecloths to cover the TV trays and place two or three chairs around each tray.
