How to style your coffee table for spring

Today I’m sharing how to style your coffee table for spring.  My aesthetic is minimal, neutral, and inspired by nature so with each style you will notice a theme that I repeat.  For my coffee table I’ve added something organic, potted plants, cut flowers, and olive branches along with a few decorative items.

 Style one: Go big and make a statement

Here I’ve chosen a glass vase and filled it with long, leafy olive tree branches.  This style reflects my preference for things not to look too perfect.  The branches are oversized and slightly irregular.  Along side the vase I’ve stacked a couple books and on the other side of the table I added a single book along with a couple note cards and  pen.  There is also a candle and ceramic bowl filled with matches.

  Style Two: Stone with foraged branches

Group similar items together like these stone vases.  Add moss, fresh herbs, or dried branches and set on a tray. I stayed with the stone theme by adding a stone bowl.

 Style three: Basket with potted plants

Pottery filled with herbs or ferns look so pretty on the counter or coffee table.  So simple and fresh.

  Style Four: Add a conversation piece

Add a conversation piece like this Wabi Sabi vase.  Fill with dried flowers or leave as is and enjoy as a sculptural piece for display.  I added a small vase to the inside of my vase, filled it with water and added a fresh florals.  The books and candle stays.

Choose your favorite vase and fill it with foraged branches, flowers, or fresh greenery.  Create a smaller arrangement featuring a single flower, stem,  or go big with oversized branches.  I  like the look of two or three small potted plants in a rectangular basket. Try different sizes when displaying vases by themselves or in a group.  This European glass vase filled with olive branches really makes a statement.  I love the Wabi Sabi vase.  Each vase is crafted from matte white porcelain and have their own personality including a unique fold that occurs when fired in the kiln. These are sculptural pieces and don’t hold water so they are best used as a display item for to hold dried flowers.  I placed a small vase filled with water inside my vase so I could add live flowers.

  • Trays are helpful to coral items.

Try different shapes and sizes filling and layer or fill with your favorite items.  This shallow white stone tray  is the perfect size for a candle, matches or a small potted plant.  Think about layering items.  For example you could place a tray inside of a tray for a pretty look.

  • Stacking books.

I like to change up my coffee table books at least seasonally. Sometimes I might have a single book on the table, other times I will stack three.  Change it up for fun!

  • Candles and decorative objects.

I always have a clean burning candle on the table.  In today’s blog post I am burning  hand poured soy wax candle called African Basil. It carries notes of orange, lemon, silver thyme, clove and rosewood.  It’s subtle and won’t overpower the room, love it so much.  Each candle is hand poured in a glass vessel and topped with a white oak lid that‚Äôs hand-milled in Maine.
