These idea's are for 1. the adventuresome and 2. dinner guests who don't mind dining in the dark (additional lighting will be needed since your chandelier has been replaced)
I love the fun and organic feeling that the branch chandelier gives to an otherwise very formal room.
This does not have to be a permanent installation but give it a try and you may just want it to be.
I would love to hang miniature votive candles from the branches. Talk about instant mood lighting!
