That is my question.In a few weeks, I'll be entertaining about 60 family members in my home as part of a weekend of festivities. This party is intended to be casual—we're wearing jeans and eating a take-out Italian buffet. Here's my dilemma: Do I provide tables and formal seating, or do I allow people gather where they may and be, well, casual?Advice from friends and family so far has been mixed. On the one hand, nobody is comfortable with the mental image of our less-coordinated relatives trying to juggle platefuls of pasta and a glasses of red wine. On the other hand, my home dates back to a no-Great Room era, so there are lots of small rooms and absolutely no space to set up large rented tables.
A forkable menu is a given—I'm already there. But should I consider café tables? Can anybody help?
