This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This update was long due. I updated the fixed version of these files. Still, there remains the problem that the deco will spring back to the mesh colors when removed and put up again. I´m sorry.

I always wanted to create something like this: variable table decoration.



You can use this decoration on any table. Your Sims will still be able to eat on it. Chose beetween flowers, table cloth, salt and pepper and butter and milk for decoration. You can also combine some of them.

An English pie menu is included, though not shown on the pics. If anyone happens to make some screenshots of the English version, I´d gladly attach them here.

Has two recolorable subsets (flowers and table cloth) and comes with four recolors.

Category: Appliances/Misc; Price: 30; Faces/Vertices: 654/630

Base game compliant.

Enjoy! Sabine

Thank you SO much for this! I need settings like this for my movies. Would you be up for including a blank place setting adding empty plates, a napkin and silverware?

Anyway, great work and thanks!

Thanks for this. I get frustrated sometimes when my sims sit at a table with deco and don't get to really eat! The food just disappears and you don't see the animations. I can't wait to try this in my sims restaurants.

@decorgal: I´m really sorry, but I´m not able to take requests at the moment. This will be my last update for long, as I´ll be doing my exams soon.

@all: Thank you very much for the wonderful comments!

Oh geez, I've had troubles before too in my restaurants with food disappearing and having to reorder food and...gah! Very annoying! I got really excited when I read sims could eat around it.

Thanks for sharing! It's versatile as well as beautiful!

Perhaps this is what you've already noticed this, but for some odd reason I'm unable to click on this at all in game? I just have the base game and FFS.

No, this is not the problem I noticed. I don´t have FFS, it could be that this is not compliant with it.

Forever: You can change the appearence of this deco item by clicking on it in game. The salt and pepper shakers appear when you choose the set for lunch (or dinner? I'm not quite sure what the pie menu is in English, it's so long since I´ve done this) option.
