The Clay’s Christmas Dinner Logic Puzzle


The Clay family are preparing for their annual Christmas feast, a grand celebration with friends and family. Taking place in a large, luxurious home often affectionately dubbed a mini-mansion by guests, their Christmas gathering is meticulously planned and highly praised. This year there are to be 5 tables of guests, each with a unique centerpiece with the table number on top for easy identification. Each table happens to have a guest with a special dietary requirement. Can you identify each table's centerpiece, the guest with the dietary requirement, and what that requirement is?

1) Table 1 will be identified by a large glittering reindeer decoration that takes up nearly half the table, but still leaves plenty of room for food.
2) Maryanne, who will not be on Table 1, is an elderly guest who has lost a few teeth over the years and, sadly, can no longer enjoy many of the usual Christmas foods. She will receive a specially-prepared three-course meal full of the flavors of Christmas but made exclusively with soft food!
3) The number of the table with the floral bouquet is consecutively the next number after Martina's table number. Martina will not be seated at Table 3 or Table 4.
4) Of Roderick and the guest with the low sodium dietary requirement, one is on Table 2 and the other is on the table with the Christmas wreath centerpiece.
5) Hugo is not the one with the low sodium diet.
6) Roderick is not the one with the gluten free dietary request.
7) The vegan guest at Table 5 will receive a nut-based vegan roast in place of meat.
8) Kylie's table number is an odd number. Her table will be adorned with a very large set of angel wings surrounded by cotton wool clouds.
