Hello, my friends! I hope that your week has been going well so far! As I said in a previous post, I’ve been working on getting my home all clean, so that I can get to decorating it a bit more. One new addition to the living room is a coffee table! Yay! My aunt bought us one to be assembled, Bobby put it together, and I’ve been working on decorating it!
It’s such a fun process, and I love that I can decorate it so easily with pieces that I already have at home. I thought I would write a post with recommendations on what one can adorn theirs with.
Reading material. I currently have two magazines, Country Woman and Country Living on the coffee table. I also have a book about medicinal herbs. I think that coffee table reading is great decor, wonderful for any guests you may have, or if you’re wanting to gather in the living room, and take a break from your tv and phone. Magazines work great for this, as do large books. They take up a nice amount of space on the coffee table, and they’re easy to flip through.
Flowers. The flowers that are on my coffee table right now are fake flowers that I used in my wedding. I have them arranged in mason jars that were a wedding gift. Real flowers are, of course, always preferable, but sometimes ya gotta make do!
Coasters. The coasters we have on our coffee table currently are some really lovely ones made by a family friend. They look quite charming on our table, but they also serve a very practical purpose.
A candle or two. Again, charming AND practical. There is nothing more satisfying than sitting down to a clean home and lighting a delicious smelling candle. And they’re just so cute, too!
Framed photographs. I currently have a framed photo of Bobby and myself from our engagement photoshoot. It makes the home feel like it is truly YOURS and it’s a great way to display photos.
Table Runner. Again, I don’t currently have this on my coffee table, but I think that one would look quite nice. A thin one right down the middle would look wonderful, made in a color that calls back to the decor.
Seasonal items. I don’t currently have any fall decor on my table, but I may begin to add some in the future, but odds are, I won’t add anything until Christmas time. We shall see, my dear friends. Seasonal/holiday items are a lovely way to switch up decor.
I hope that I’ve given you some inspiration for decoration, and that you have a lovely rest of your day!
Thank you so much for reading!

Reading material! So old school – love it! 😀
Sometimes you just have to go back to the basics!
