Aquaria:  Buy or rent some card tables and chairs. We usually host T Day here and have table that folds up that seats 6.  We put a nice table cloth on it and have chairs around it.  Never have had an issue.

Aquaria:  Eating on the couch might be a bit difficult. I would do like the PP said and just get a small table for the extra people. I am hosting Thanksgiving this year for FI’s family and we don’t even have a dining room table or dining room. We are just going to buy a cheap table and chairs off of craigslist or rent one and put it in the living room.

I think it depends on the family!  At my house, some sit at the main table (mostly the grandparents, great-aunts/uncles), the younger ones (me, cousins, aunts, uncles) just kinda stand and talk or sit in the living room, and the football-lovers sit on the couch and watch the game.  It’s fun, and although it seems like everyone’s off doing their own thing, we make it work and all have a great time.

Seems the consensus is a folding table and it totally works! Just get one from a hardware store and buy a longer table cloth if you are extending the dining room table or a smaller one 🙂 it works great and you will have it for years to come 🙂 also makes a great bar table if you ever have a party 🙂
