Is there such a thing as a table that's too empty or too cluttered?

My table has napkins, salt & pepper on a lazy susan. My mother in laws has so many candles and flowers and stuff that #1 there's no where to put your plate, silverware & glass #2 it's just not fun dining because you cant even see the people you're trying to have dinner with.

How do you do it???

I don't keep anything on my table except a center piece. And when I have people over it comes off so we can see each other

Same here - centerpiece - that's it. Comes off for meals; goes back on when done.

Well...... We don't eat at the table usually, because my husband put the computer on the table instead of the computer desk, and put the TV on the computer desk. He's such a goober. And now he won't let me switch things around so I can't fix it until we move to another house which will be sometime in February or March, maybe earlier.

But I do remember my grandma's table... She had a teapot on a cozy in the center which she moved for dinner or weekend breakfast. She would usually put the food in the middle of the table so we could get seconds if we wanted them.

I dont have anything on my kitchen table except for a tablecloth and a center piece. I also take it off when it time to eat and then I put it back on the table.
