This is a hoot because I'm trying to master the multi-layer extravaganza style I see at DD, and here my first challenge is all about simplicity. Well, here it is.

Growing up, we always had what we jokingly called a vulgar display of crass materialism. When my parents turned 80, they got a little tree in a pot from Whole Foods and we put our presents under that. Now that they are in a nice apartment in a retirement community, we put a poinsettia on the floor and put the cards and presents around it. My father called it a modest display of minimal materialism.
