I have a very small table enough for the two of us. So I cannot keep a lot of decorative stuff on it because there is not enough space. If I had a bigger table, I would totally love to have a beautiful vase in the center or some vintage decorative pieces if it goes well with it.
No. We have a large dining setting that seats 8. We got it last year. The one we got after we married was looking a bit worse for wear. I used to have a vase of fresh flowers on it, but the cat jumps up and we have had near misses. I would hate for it to spill on the table, and artificial flowers aren't really my thing. We use our table mainly as a desk. Hubby pays the bills there. I do my writing there and my puzzles.....love my crosswords. Have a pile of them in a folder that I am working through. We take all our paper work off if we need to use it as a dining table !! It is great as you can spread out over it.
