The end table runners that were helping to avoid scratches are a good start. You should also have coasters very noticeable on both end tables so no one can claim they didn't see them.
Coffee and end table sets come in all shapes and sizes as well as styles. This can make shopping for them a bit of an adventure, since there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, to choose from.
Next, there are end tables that can serve other functions.
Here's a little tip in that regard. If you have wood accents on your upholstered pieces, you want to pick the same type of wood, stain or color for your coffee and end table sets. This will ensure that they look like a family of pieces, rather than having something stick out like a sore thumb because it's the wrong color.
Some people would say they could just pull out a folding table and use that as a space to put the drinks. Think back to the last time you really saw at a folding table. It may have been as a child at the 'kiddie table' during a holiday meal, or at some poker game with your college buddies. Do you really want that flimsy table to be holding up everyone's drinks. Consider a bump of the table during the game. How many colors will your carpet turn when the drinks start splashing over? You don't really want to think of what it will take to get red wine out, do you?
That's not to say that these tables aren't still trendy. It's just that traditional brick and mortar retailers have only so much room for furniture and these other round tables have captured all the press this year.
