A folding table comes in handy when you need a table surface in a hurry, but don't want to leave it set up permanently. For card games, picnics, play time for children or a working surface for a hobby, folding tables come in very handy.


Folding tables are lightweight and portable. Many are good for outdoor use as well as indoor. Some folding tables are more permanent, made of high-quality wood with folding sections or leaves for convenience.

About Folding Tables

A folding table comes in handy. Garden birthday parties and large events where food is brought to share may require some extra space to offer each dish to guests. Most fold down flat enough that several tables can be stacked upon each other to reduce space consumption. These tables are easily decorated for themed events with tablecloths, streamers, and balloon centrepiece ensembles. Individual folding tables can be found to enjoy a relaxing meal while lounging on the sofa or in the recliner while taking in a show or film.

From wood to metal, folding tables are made from several materials, including plastic. Wood options can be sanded and re-stained to make them water-resistant or a different hue. You can find folding tables on eBay that can accommodate as few as two people to as many as 12 people. Set up a few folding tables for extra display space at a craft fair or for additional seating at a large family gathering, complete with folding chairs.
