I recently attended a wedding reception that had different types and sizes of centerpieces on the tables. The table my friends and I chose had a beautiful centerpiece on it but as soon as we sat down and started talking to each other we realized we couldn’t see each other’s faces during our conversations. Since there were very few guests in the reception hall at that time, I bravely “swapped” centerpieces with another table. Hopefully no one noticed my little dirty deed. The guests around my table were now able to have a lovely conversation and make eye contact while talking.
