What do you have on your dining room table?

I am tired of my floral centerpiece and am looking for something new yet simple to decorate my dining room table. Would like to see what others are up to?

Thank you! I guess it would have helped if I said I have a traditional dining room, dark wood. Thinking about a bowl filled with pears or artichokes.....not too exciting sounding.....will have to post a picture....

I like silver candlestick holders - timeless. Go to an antique store and get a really nice piece bowl or candlestick holders - antiques usually do not lose their value. Looks more impressive than Pier one etc.

Here is what I have. I love the idea of a solid group of blooms (silk) but the good silk flowers are crazy priced and not sure of the vessel to put them in. My dining room is on the formal side. Maybe the tulips are ok, just might need more of them?

Carolina Photo to go, I like that idea of a bowl. Chinese? What style would you suggest. I have a couple of crystal candlesticks. They need something with them.

We mix it up between a simple, beautiful bowl by Nambe, the Satellite Fruit Bowl by Carlo Contin (filled with lemons). Sometimes will do two beautiful candlesticks (Hartland by Simon Pearce). We prefer modern, quiet style.

I would say if you are going to use crystal candlestick holders, I would choose a bowl made out of something else. Chinese would be fine if you like. I have some oriental accessories in my house. Oriental decorator touches have been used for Centuries. The elaborate Vanderbilt Mansion in Asheville NC has oriental in places, ie THe Biltmore House. Silver would be another option.
