Decorating Tip – Card Tables
Tis’ the season for lots of guests and tabletop space can be limited especially when having dinner. You’ve got your centerpiece on the table, plates, glasses, silverware, and there’s just no room for all of the food. What to do? Consider placing a card table near the head of the table (hopefully you or your significant other will be sitting there). All the food can then be place on the card table and passed around without the traffic of a buffet. I know what you may be thinking, “But card tables are ugly”. Yes, many of them are. BUT, you can dress it up with a lovely tablecloth and add its own decor. Another option is to keep an eye out for card tables at vintage stores. Back in the day, they were beautifully designed. Here is a photo of one vintage card table that I use…
It folds open nicely and holds quite a bit of food. When I’m done using it, I folded up and put it in the basement.
