Two Ways to Style Your Coffee Table

One of my favorite things to do is style and accessorize bookshelves, coffee tables, bar carts, and buffets. There's something about the finishing touch accessories that I love so much! Today I'm showing you how I styled my friend Ashley's coffee table two ways, when I visited her a few weeks ago. The key is balance of your pieces on the coffee table. Here we go!

Recipe for Table 1:
- Tray with flowers & candle
- Stack of books with object on top (I LOVE this camera Ashley had laying around!)
- Stack of books and / or magazines on the bottom shelf 
- Basket or box on the bottom shelf to ground it and bring in some color.

Recipe for Table 2:
- Stack of books on one side with a colored jar of flowers and accent jars
- A tall pillar candle to bring height to the other side of the table
- Clear jar filled with colored fruit (we chose oranges!)
- To complete the right side of the table, add a Fall candle into the mix. I always prefer decor grouped in vignette's of threes.
- Stack your extra pillows on the lower shelf of the coffee table.

If you love these looks, here's how to get them below:
