I have found a solution to entertaining a large crowd in my small house. Below is my dinning room as it is normally. So where do I seat 10-12 for dinner? This beautiful, antique, oak table can only fit 6 with the leaf. Do you see the mahogany table pushed up under the window? See what happens…
I can get 10-12 people around this table because it opens up and has 4 leaves! (not shown to it’s full length here) But then what do I do with my oak table?
I move it into my living room and use it for an hors d’oeuvre table.
Voila! My small house CAN be a comfortable party house…and there is always the kitchen!
*so check your local antiques dealer for interesting tables that can serve more than one purpose
