Spring Coffee Table Styling
Today I want to tackle one of my favorite spaces to decorate: the coffee table.
One of the easiest ways to redecorate your space with minimal effort is to restyle your coffee table. Usually this is the focal point of your seating area. Making it feel intentional and fresh for spring is a great way to make a big visual impact!
I love our large coffee table from Serena & Lily. We are lucky enough to live close to the outlet and this was one of my favorite finds from last summer. The top is a little worn out, but I plan on replacing it with a piece of marble remnant from our kitchen remodel. The base on this coffee table is my favorite part!
How to Style a Square Coffee Table
Styling this square coffee table can be kind of tricky though. In the past I have used a large round rattan tray to hold a stack of books, a candle and some flowers.
But, this spring I wanted to switch it up. I chose to use a grid-like arrangement to create symmetry but also interest.
I love coffee table books and I used two stacks to anchor the group. Then, I used this brass box (that is great for holding coasters and small remotes) and my DIY bulb arrangement on the other corner of the grid.
Stack 2-3 books together and top with something interesting. A pretty paperweight, brass figurine or like I did here, some of my favorite crystals.
Books are a great way to add interest and height to your coffee table styling.
When in doubt, stick with symmetry, balance and interest.
DIY Spring Bulb Arrangement
This DIY spring bulb arrangement is one of my favorite parts of this spring coffee table styling. And it came together so easily. I will show you how you can make your own arrangement perfect for your spring coffee table!
You could make this arrangement in any kind of vessel. A vintage footed bowl, crock or even a large white kitchen bowl would be lovely. I chose to use this wood bowl because I love the color and warm texture it lends to my spring coffee table styling.
You could also choose to use real spring bulbs. I love fresh flowers! However, I wanted this arrangement to last through till summer. And I found the most realistic looking faux bulbs. The only thing missing is the fragrant smell from the real deal!
Spring Bulb Arrangement Supplies
To make this spring bulb arrangement, you will want to have the following supplies:
- Vessel (I chose this wooden bowl)
- 3 small Paperwhite drop-in bulbs
- 1 large Paperwhite drop-in bulb
- 1-2 sheets tissue paper
- 1 package decorative moss
How To Make A Faux Bulb Arrangement
To make this beautiful spring arrangement, place one sheet of tissue paper in your bowl or pot. Scrunch it up a bit. You will be using this to hold your bulbs in place.
Next, place the large bulb in the center, then place the other 3 smaller bulbs around it, using the tissue paper to hold the bulbs upright. Use more sheets of tissue paper as necessary but don’t use too much.
Lastly, use the moss to cover the tissue paper. I left the tops of the bulbs showing to make it feel more realistic.
I love how fresh this feels! Definitely my favorite part of this spring coffee table styling!
