Style Tip: “Every table needs lighting (candles), something sculptural (flowers or plants), and room to breathe. Make sure one of those elements has height, but be careful not to cut off conversation with a massive flower arrangement in the center of the table. If you want to get crazy, scatter pretty leaves, branches, or confetti.”
