Ideabook Tuesday: Setting Up that Thanksgiving Table

I have a dream dining room table. It's made of polished, reddish wood and it's round. At its normal size, it seats about eight, but it can expand - staying round - to seat 12.

The table doesn't exist - at least, I've never seen a round table that remains round when it expands. I know it's possible, though, and about a year ago, I suggested to my sister that she design and build one for me. She had some ideas, but oddly enough, she hasn't (yet) taken a break from her schoolwork to build me a fancy table. I'm still waiting.

So in the meantime, I'm stuck like everybody else when it comes to hosting big dinners. Fortunately, there are a lot of ways to make the most of whatever table space you've got available. And, in honor of Thanksgiving, that's what today's ideabook is about:

I had the same dining room table delima and found this table -

The leaves pop up "bic pen fashion" from the middle. It seats nine.
