We are having a "family style" dinner where there are serving dishes on each table. We're really excited about the food but the trouble is that it doesn't leave much room (like any) on the table with the plates and everything. So what can we do for centerpieces? I don't want to have nothing, it seems like that would be really empty and non-festive when people are first coming in before the food is served. Can the servers take centerpieces away? Is this a waste of money if they're not going to stay on the tables during dinner? Any suggestions about how to approach this would be appreciated!
