What you want is to start with a 4 Table Howell Movement (thanks, Sid!)
Unfortunately, with only 8 pairs, there are only 7 different sets of opponents, so unless you have a "revenge round" or "final month playoff", your 8th month won't be used. However, with this movement (tweaked appropriately, see below) in 7 months, every pair will have played every other once.
To make it work for homes: first, ignore the "boards" column - you'd be able to have everyone play the same hands, if you could keep 7 evenings' worth safe and undiscussed for 7 months. Not going to happen! Similarly, you can ignore the "table" name - just pretend it's just "game #1, game #2, ... #4".
Next, each month is a "round". So the first month is "round 1", the next is "round 2", and so on. On the game night, the couple at each table labelled "North/South" hosts the couple labelled "East/West" (to be fair to pair 8, you probably wish to alternate who hosts "Table 1" every month).
Don't bother telling the players "which table", or "what table you're going to next" - it's irrelevant to them. Just give them who each month's opponents are, and who's hosting this month. You're the only one who has to know the mechanics!
