Great Holiday Uses for Pub Tables in Your Home

Pub tables can be one of the most functional tables to use in your home. With their different height, they can be used for a wide variety of things, and with the holiday season upon us, they’re great for parties, and casual small dinners. While they come in varying heights, and many different shapes and sizes, they provide a wide variety of functionality in your home.


If you’re looking for the perfect table to feature photos on, so that they’ll be at eye line height, a pub table works wonders. While they’re great for showing off family photos, decorations, or even small stacks of books, they can also prove to be a great work space. If your dining room table always seems to be crowded with mail, bills and books, moving them to a smaller pub table might force you to keep them more organized.  A pub table can double as a great small workspace, with enough room for a laptop and some books.

A pub table can also be great to include in the living room, as a smaller alternative to a dining room table. Depending on your space, you might not have room for a formal dining room table. A pub table can seat around four people and is a nice casual way to have a dining area. If you’re looking for a small table for excess people it functions well.

Kitchen Dining

If you’re living in a smaller place and don’t have room for a full table in the kitchen, let alone a formal dining room, a pub table can be a great solution for space. While it’s still a table you can eat at, it’s a much smaller size, and fits well in most spaces.

Try investing in a pub table instead of a dining room table, if you’re scrapped for space, and use it for multiple purposes, like a desk, and an eating space.

Holiday Gatherings

With the holidays here, a pub table can be a great addition for extra dining space, or even a great table to gather food on at a holiday party. Set it up as an additional table for the kids at the holiday feast, or use it as a place to put appetizers or a makeshift bar during a party. Pub tables are so versatile that you can use them one way for the holidays, and then incorporate them into your home in an entirely different way next month.

Dining Room Furniture for the Holidays

Dining Room Tables - Barstools - Bistro TablesIf you’re hosting a holiday dinner or party this year, and you don’t own a traditional dining room table, there’s no need to panic. There are many other ways to use dining room furniture, bar stools, kitchen tables and more, to serve a meal and appetizers. If you’re looking to invest in a new dining room table, we’re here to break down the best styles.

Breakfast Bars and Barstools

Keep in mind that at the holidays, not all meals are sit-down. Some gatherings subsist entirely on appetizers and small plates. If you have a breakfast bar, why not turn it into a buffet table. If you don’t have a large dining room table to place food on, try using your kitchen or breakfast bar.

Pull some barstools up to a breakfast bar for some additional seating options if you need overflow.

Multiple Tables

We’ve all had many a gathering where there weren’t enough seats for everyone. Pulling tables together always works. Finding pub tables, utilizing your breakfast bar or any other tables will work too.

Dining Room Table Options

If you’re looking to invest in a dining room table, perhaps now is the perfect time. If you want to be conscious of the space in your house, you could always find a table with leaves, and add all the leaves during the holidays so that you have a bigger table. These tables are best for flexible spaces. You can take the leaves out and store them, and utilize a smaller table for the rest of the year.

If you’re looking for a traditional dining room table, you can find them in many shapes and sizes so that you can seat a wide variety of people. If you’re looking for an alternative seating option, try using benches instead of chairs at your dining room table. Benches can seat more people if they have to.

If you’re looking to get a table but don’t have the space for a larger dining room table, take a look at bistro tables. Smaller, and typically round, they won’t seat a crowd, but they could seat up to 4 people, and function as a great serving table.

When it comes down to it, at the Holidays, anything goes. People can eat on their laps, have small plates or do a formal sit-down dinner. No matter the occasion, if you’re looking for new dining room furniture, check out what’s available at California Stools, Bars and Dinettes.
