With the holidays quickly approaching, I've been thinking about all our guests who are bound to be balancing their tiny hors d'oeuvres plates on their knees if we don't come up with a better plan quickly. While researching my options, I've become quite smitten with a few of these lovely nesting tables. Check them out after the jump.

• 1. Crate and Barrel's Jules accent table. I first fell in love with this delicate sculptural table when I spotted in Lauren of Pure Style Home's gorgeous living room redo.
• 2. Admittedly, there are few things from VivaTerra's that don't send me swooning, but I have a special love for these Salvaged Wood Nesting Tables made from reclaimed hardwood from old houses. Substantial with a very small footprint.
• 3. These Stacked Plywood Nesting Tables from etsy seller Michael Flynn have a pleasing warm modern shape and a range of functions. Stacked they can act as a bookcase and shelf, unstacked they work as coffee tables and benches.
• 4. cb2's Peekaboo Clear Nesting Tables are hard workers with a low key visual impact.
• 5. The Wright tables from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams look equally suited to a updated traditional room as to a more modern setting. I especially love their smooth white marble tops.
