An approach that worked for me:

1) Create your table

2) Resize your table so that it includes an empty row at the bottom

3) Add this code to the sheet module for the worksheet with the table, to force the table to resize with the extra blank row

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
    Dim lo As ListObject
    Dim loRng As Range
    Dim loLastRow As Range
    
    Set lo = Me.ListObjects(1)
    Set loRng = lo.Range
    Set loLastRow = loRng.Rows(loRng.Rows.Count)
    
    If Not Intersect(loLastRow, Target) Is Nothing Then
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        lo.Resize loRng.Cells(1).Resize(loRng.Rows.Count + 1, loRng.Columns.Count)
        Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If
    
End Sub
