Round Tables for Entertaining

How many of you sat at a round table yesterday? Chances are, most of us were at rectangular ones. But round can be perfect for hosting a crowd, too. There's plenty of space in the center for food and the circumference provides lots of real estate for seating.

In a casual setting, a "lazy Suzan" can handle passing the food in the center of the table. Also, everyone's facing into a center point, creating a warm, friendly atmosphere. How do you feel about round tables? Let us know below.
