Doesn't it always happen on Thanksgiving? You get the dining room table all set for dinner and then that thing called life happens. Someone can't come because they're sick. You can't find your twelfth fork. Your kids can't stop touching your delicate leaf centerpiece. Or (gulp!) someone brings an unexpected guest!
Well, you can't think of everything that might happen, but you can prepare with a spare chair (or two, or four). All of these great-looking extra seating options fold up for easy storage year-round but look good enough to use at your dining room table on the special holiday. Of course, we've picked out a variety of styles because we know everyone's idea of fancy is a little different.
Click over to check out 10 great folding chairs to keep on hand in case of a lack-of-seating emergency this Thanksgiving.
