Make a list of all the tables and chairs you will need to prepare, serve, and eat dinner. Don't have enough? Before you start asking to borrow from friends and family or spend money on rentals, look around your house. Can a table in the office currently used for craft projects be repurposed as a kids' dining table? Cleared-out small bookcases can double as appetizer tables. Once you've wrangled everything, take the time to make any minor repairs needed.
