HOW DO YOU STYLE YOUR COFFEE TABLE?

I know that maybe a weird question to ask someone, but have you ever wondered how to style yours?

I was looking at an old image of mine the other day and thought my styling could definitely use some help! It no longer looks like the above picture, but even now, it still needs help!

Here is a  picture I snapped on instagram the other day, sigh… Just stacks of magazines

While scouring Pinterest for inspiration images of styled coffee tables, I realized that I’m not too far off with my styling.  I have the books (as you can see above!), so all I need now is some fresh flowers, a candle, and either a tray or a cool little trinket box or object.  That’s easy enough, right?  And for those of us with small children, I think keeping small pieces to a minimum is key here.  No matches and and little coasters, etc. would work for my table.  The larger the piece, the least likely it is for my 4 year old to play with  itSmile

I absolutely love a well styled coffee table.. the more the prettier but I suppose not practical!

Well, since you asked. . .I style mine with diapers, wipes, magazines I'll never get to read and toys. :)

Right now I have a Fuschia orchid that my beau gave me & a tarnished silver platter that holds all my votive holders (I'm obsessed with scented candles) :)

I'm on the hunt for a bigger coffee tale thought because it doubles as my dining table!

When you do get your table styled please please please share how you keep it that way with 3 kids. I cannot even keep a houseplant on my table without my two year old digging out all the soil, I'm at my wits end!:)

this is kind of off topic but, i was looking on pinterest and saw someone pin bracelets like the ones you sell on etsy, calling them cobra bracelets. maybe you should change the name to that so that people who want them can find them by that name. btw, i love your blog and i like your energy and enthusiasm :)
