We’ve seen multiple smaller tables lined up, or some pretty incredible custom-built tables and benches created to the right length. Everyone wants to be outdoors in the warmer months, so long tables are a perfect way to elevate the experience and offer a totally different atmosphere than most of your guests will have seen before.
