Thursday Tabletop: The Anywhere Table

This edition of Thursday Tabletop is brought to you from House Beautiful all the way back in Jan 2008. This table reminds me of the grown up version of setting up a table in the living room for an impromptu takeout dinner party. One of my favorite activities as a kid was when we got to eat our pizza in the living room at the card table while watching movies on Friday night. And I still love the idea of breaking out of your dining room and taking the table with you.

Here's what you need to make it work well:
  • Any kind of folding or lightweight portable table--does not need to be pretty or nice
  • A big table cloth or piece of fabric to brighten up your party and cover your table
  • Chairs for all--no need to match in my opinion, that's what's fun about the rouge dinner party
  • As always--real stemware, silverware and dishware.
  • Candles--Depending on your setting and the stability of your portable table consider electric
  • And of course, good friends or family and lots-o-wine!
Happy Thursday Everyone!
