As you plan your summer entertaining schedule, keep in mind that a folding table can ensure all your guests are seated comfortably or can provide adequate space for your buffet meal. While they're a must-have accessory for special occasions or holiday entertaining, folding tables have many other practical applications the rest of the year. I have two four-footers with plastic tops that are sturdy, yet easy to store and carry. We use them year-round for various chores such as doing crafts, DIY projects, hosting a buffet or yard sale or having a picnic meal.

They're easy to find and come in a variety of sizes and finishes. This 5 foot Office Depot Folding Table has a wood-look finish that would be easy-care. Since prices vary, look for a sturdy and durable one that fits your budget. My tables were in the $40 range from a local hardware retailer outlet, so you can find budget tables too. But, before you start shopping for a table, you may want to look at my Folding Table Buying Tips to make sure your purchase is suitable for your needs.

If your table will be used for entertaining, you may want to get some folding chairs too. Compare prices of folding chairs
