Is it really Monday already? Where oh where do the weekends go?? I’m always amazed at how fast those two days go by, but at least our days are getting longer now and we had the most beautiful, sunny day on Saturday to boot – such a bonus and it has me so anxious for spring.
Too bad we have snow in the forecast this week… 🙁
So last week, I shared a few simple styling tips for creating little vignettes around your house. I had plans to do a similar post with coffee tables for today, but technical difficulties prevented me from completing my photo shoot on Saturday, and Sunday was too cloudy to try again. Long story short, I only have one look to share with you today. But one look is better than no looks, right? At least that’s what I’m telling myself so I feel better about it. 🙂 #bloggerfail #again #maybeiwilldobetternextweek
Nine times out of ten, I use a tray – it keeps everything contained and makes it easy to slide it all out of the way when needed. This time though, I thought I’d switch it up a little bit, omit the tray, and use lanterns as a focal point.
Lanterns like this are a lot larger than anything I typically use because I don’t want to have to move things every time we sit down to watch a little TV, but these are tucked off to the side and allow plenty of viewing space.
For the other side of the table, I grabbed a little wood bowl from the bookshelves, popped in a couple hydrangea stems I had stored away in the basement, and threw down that strand of wood beads that always manages to make its way into every picture these days. I’m just obsessed with those things – they always provide the perfect finishing touch. 🙂
And there you have it – a simple and pretty little coffee table styled for spring.
Hope you all have a beautiful week! 🙂
