The flickering light of a lantern centerpiece adds something special to any table. And when it's enclosed in sparkling glass or peeking through tissue paper, intricate lace, or a bed of flowers, the effect is something your guests won't soon forget.
Stargazers -- or anyone looking to give her room lighting a dreamier dimension -- will love this easy decorating trick. All you need is a few crafting tools and an inexpensive white lampshade. Flick on the switch come nightfall and enjoy the customized twinkle that gleams through.
