To say that I’m obsessed with long communal tables would be the understatement of the year. In my book, the longer the better. Unfortunately, it’s not like I have a ton of 12-foot tables on hand.

But thanks to style maven Athena Calderone and this fall farm dinner party she hosted with lifestyle blog MyDomaine, I have a new great idea. Can you guess what it is?

It’s simple: Build a table out of sheets of plywood and some sawhorses. Sure, these are actual tables that have been lined up (in the most picturesque field ever). But the setup made me realize that it’d be pretty easy to recreate a similar look with just a few supplies from the hardware store.

And for seating around the table, well, that’s why hay bales exist! Fluffy sheepskin pieces add a level of coziness and comfort (they protect against butt sticks!).

So simple yet so pretty. The best part? No fussy tablecloth required.
