New York [October 7, 2021] Table Wars, HGTV's colorful new extreme tabletop and special event design competition series will premiere on Friday, November 12, at 10 p.m. ET/PT as a celebration of the unrestrained imagination and breathtaking creativity displayed by eight top event designers.

During each episode of Table Wars, the competitors must design and install the ultimate themed dining environment that features stunning tablescapes, centerpieces, lighting and displays to wow the judges and avoid elimination.
