In the dining room I kept things simple…K.I.S.S. “keep is simple sister.” We have a stock builder light fixture which I hate. To add some flair to it I took the fabric off the lampshades wrapped them in twin and added the starfish. Much better. For Christmas I just added bows to each light. I keep a basket with salt and pepper and napkins on the table and added some Christmas balls to bring in the color. Unlike most we use our table for everything, craft table, office for hubbie when he works from home, school and sometimes even eating. For this reason I don’t keep it set up and decorated it has to function for our day to day living.
