Coffee Table Basics

Coffee tables are the centerpieces of most homes, and what you have on your table says a lot about who you are and what inspires you. Mastering the art of creating a perfectly personalized tablescape may seem intimidating, but here are a few tips I have learned along the way. 

• Ambience is everything; so always have a few of your favorite candles out.
• Keep things organized.
• Add a few of your favorite books
• Let your personality show; add a few decorative pieces.

Here is what is currently on my coffee table.
• French Quarter Candles in ‘Garden District’. After a trip to New Orleans earlier in the year I fell in  love with these candles.
• An antique pineapple candle snuffer my grandma brought me back from the south.
• Bouquet of peonies. I love the addition of fresh flowers to my house.
• Apothecary jar of Holland mints. When I would go visit my great grandmother I always remember her having Holland mints on her coffee table. When I had my own place they easily became one of my favorite accessories to add to my own table.
• Hand painted ceramic angel bought at a craft show.
• Fashion, entertaining and hospitality books can be found on my table. When I am feeling uninspired, I love to flip through the pages.

  2. Great tablescaping! I just love decorating tables like this! Mine is seriously lacking right now. I love peonies as well. It is always so nice to walk into the house with fresh flowers!


  3. I don't have one right now but if I did I couldn't keep much on it as Belle's tail is so long.
