First, your plan does sound good. When we have my family and in-laws over, we sit at kitchen table, card tables in living room, a couple on the sofa eating at the coffee table, we manage! What my family usually does though, is the Hostess makes the main meat, buns, whatever, and everyone else brings a dish or two to pass. Salads, potatoes, stuffing, casserole/veggie dishes, desserts. Could you bring that up? Works out great, everyone feels included and it's not all the stress on you. I'd also mention it soon, if this is different than what you've done in the past, give people time to think about it, and plan around it. Good luck!
