Coffee table styling can be one of the easiest ways to change up your décor for the seasons. This month’s Back to Basics Home décor challenge was to share our simple tips for styling a coffee table. While some people might not have a fireplace mantel to decorate most people have a coffee table. Coffee tables are great. They are the best spots to hold our morning cup of coffee, favorite reading material and even our feet after a long day! After reading my coffee table tips be sure to check out my friends tips below. Thanks so much to Vicki and Jenn at 2 Bees in a Pod and CoCo at the Crowned Goat for hosting the Back to Basics Challenge!
Coffee Table Styling for Fall – Back to Basics

Today I am sharing my living room coffee table. Jason and I tend to disagree on the importance of styling a coffee table :). He likes them clear so an impromptu board game or huge smorgasborg of game time appetizers can happen at a moments notice. So our compromise is me styling the living room coffee table and we keep the family room coffee table fairly clear for his “snacks” :).
Books & Magazines
The first items I add to my coffee table are my favorite decorating and gardening coffee table books and current magazines. In this world of Pinterest and Instagram I still love to sit and flip through my favorite magazines and books for decorating ideas and recipes.
Textural & Seasonal Accents
A wood dough bowl filled with acorns, our coaster basket, and a glass cloche filled with homemade velvet pumpkins add seasonal interest to our coffee table and fill in the empty gaps my books left behind.
The seasonal accents can be changed out as quickly as he weather changes.
Acorns can easily be exchanged for pinecones in the winter and pumpkins can be changed out for Easter eggs in the Spring.
Living Plants or Flowers
A fresh plant or flowers instantly bring life into a room. Since it’s the fall I brought in fresh maple leaves from the tree in our front yard and place them in a simple ball canning jar.
Who doesn’t love the smell of pumpkin spice in the fall? Candles placed on a coffee table can immediately give your home a sense of warmth and bonus, they smell good too ;).
I hope this gave you some ideas for styling your coffee tables. Don’t forget to check out my friends ideas below!!!
