Regarding Linda’s list: it’s unlikely that you’ll find tables that suit every 
item. I was on a working group that was looking for such tables. Stackable 
light weight tables aren’t as well made as heavier ones. Folding leg parts 
often are placed close to the ends, thus making it awkward to sit at the ends. 
My best advice is for several people to plan field trips to churches, hotels, 
schools, student unions, etc., and see what’s available. I found only one 
stackable table that was fairly good looking but it was so narrow it barely 
accommodated diners sitting across from each other (but was useful in the 
banquet room where we saw it).
Good luck. Please share your findings.

We have landed on lightweight folding rectangular tables, that seat between
6 and 8 people.  They are ugly, but we put table cloths on them.
