The More the Merrier: Furniture for Entertaining a CrowdAuthor:Abigail Stone
The beauty of outdoor entertaining is that there’s always a spot for an extra guest, whether it’s made by scooting down the picnic table bench or simply plopping onto the ground.

Folding tables and chairs work in a pinch, but for a better look opt for a few quick-change pieces to provide some extra space in short order.
