Another idea is to use tree stumps or other beautiful pieces of wood. The top surface can be sanded and polished to make a beautiful, natural surface. Alternatively, beautiful pieces of driftwood can have legs added to make a wonderful centrepiece coffee table for your room.
Whilst many pieces of furniture are primarily about function and need to be of at least a reasonably standard size and shape to serve their purpose adequately, coffee tables are one area where individual taste and style can be allowed to run wild.
A folding trestle table is so handy to own. Once you do, you'll wonder how you ever coped without one. So, what exactly can you do with your trestle table? Here are a few ideas.
The classic head table is designed to keep the bridal party together, with the bride and groom in the center of everything. It works very well for this purpose, but there can also be some drawbacks to this arrangement. The biggest complaint is that the bridesmaids and groomsmen want to sit with their dates (and even more to the point, their dates do not want to be marooned at a distant table where they do not know anyone). If you have a lot of people in your bridal party who are married or seriously involved with a partner, it is understandable that they would wish to be seated together. (On the other hand, if your attendants are not in a committed relationship, they should think twice before asking someone to be their "plus one" for the wedding, as that person will definitely be spending a lot of time feeling abandoned, no matter what the seating arrangements are for dinner.)
Whichever way you go, choose the head table set up that works the best for your particular family situation and reception venue. Once you weigh all of your options, one style of seating is going to emerge as the most practical for your wedding. And then you can breathe a sigh of relief, as you cross "head table seating" off of your to-do list!
A flat surface is about the only standard requirement of a coffee table, everything else is negotiable. This means that you can custom design a table using any materials that you please. The only consideration that you should take into account is the issue of safety; glass should be tempered glass and sharp corners should be smoothed slightly to prevent accidents. Other than these considerations you have free rein.
