However, before we go to far you may want to check out how to pick a coffee table or the best style and shape of a coffee table for your home in this post HERE.

NOW let’s get into the fun part! Your home décor style! Now there are some shapes that are better suited for some styles, but often most shapes can be incorporated into multiple styles.

Coffee Tables are a key piece of furniture that most of us have in our homes! The key is to make these tables be functional yet finding a way to keep them styled in an aesthetically appealing way. Often being able to incorporate a bit of storage as well can be essential as well!

Buckets of Flowers

This has got to be 1 of our favourite coffee table centrepieces! Simple, classic yet beautiful! Any container that fits with your style and filled with blooms is sure to look amazing!

Another option involving flowers is to use multiple vases. Vases grouped in odd numbers or lined up down the table can look so pretty. Place single stems in the vases to get the biggest bang for your dollar.

Using Beautiful Antiques

It’s no secret that we love to fill our homes with French Antiques. One of the reasons is that we feel a lot of these pieces look beautiful even on their own! It’s an easy way to decorate and often looks great year-round. For an extra touch Britt and Deb often love to fill the antique containers with a few linens. Ticking linens or antique linens are the girl’s favourites. Here’s a little trick … you don’t need to fill the entire container with the “pretty linens.” Place a plastic container on the bottom of the antique container or use an old towel to occupy the space at the bottom and then place the nice decorative linens on the top!

Coffee Table for your farmhouse

Seasonal Decor

As you can tell we love to keep the coffee table décor more on the simple side because we have invested in coffee tables that look amazing on their own. Check out our unique coffee table ideas.

If you love to layer your décor a great guide for creating a beautiful coffee table centrepiece is:
1. Start with a tray.
2. Add vases or candles to the tray.
3. Fill the vases with flowers or layer in some beads or twinkle lights.

The easiest way to give you some more coffee table décor ideas is to break this down into the seasons! Britt and Deb live in a 4-season climate and love to base a large part of their décor around this idea.

Spring Coffee Table Décor Ideas

Bring in all the fresh! Fresh flowers or fresh fruit! Use this season to bring in the fresh elements of the outdoors indoors!

Spool coffee table
  • Fresh Flowers are making an appearance and the girls love to embrace that! Whether it be single stems, large bouquets, or branches like pussey willows or magnolia is often what you will catch on their tables this time of year.
  • Potted plants like hydrangeas are often coming our in the spring and placing a big potted hydrangea on the table looks so pretty as coffee table decor.
  •  Mandarin oranges begin to arrive in the grocery store so grab a bag to fill up a fun or basket! Plus they smell amazing!

Summer Coffee Table Décor Ideas:

When we think of summer we often think of florals first. But we are also usually busy and spending more time outdoors so keep the décor on the coffee table simple!

  • Even more flowers! You will find Britt and Deb trimming flowers from around the yard and at local flower farms collecting massive bunches of flowers or groups of simple stems!
  • Flowers are all around us during the summer and you will see that from the way their coffee tables are styled this time of year! When we think of summer we often think of florals first. But we are also usually busy and spending more time outdoors so keep the décor on the coffee table simple!

Fall Coffee Table Décor Ideas:

This season is when we switch to those warm, cozy vibes. It’s always a good ideas to bring in more texture for these cooler seasons!

  • For the Autumn months fill a container with apples or pumpkins for your coffee table decor.
  • Or if you can find pretty pumpkins you can simply place a few on the centre of your table on their own.
  • Bring out the branches. If you saved some pussey willows from the Spring you can bring them back out.
  • Dried flowers. Flowers like larkspur and Globe Thistle dry so well and look great dried and placed in a container!
  • Switching between Fall and Winter Britt loves to fill containers with cranberries or pomegranates because the colours and the fruits transition between seasons so well.

Christmas Coffee Table Décor Ideas:

For this next part we are going to separate Christmas and Winter. Winter lasts for months after Christmas here in Canada and can be one of the hardest times to decorate your home for so
Britt and Deb wanted to make sure to give you some Winter Inspiration as well!

Living room at Christmas
  • During the Christmas months fill a container with Christmas Balls or Ornaments! You can even layer in twinkle lights with the ornaments!
  • Mini Christmas Trees in a little bucket look so cute.
  • Candles are also perfect for this time of season! Either a large candle displayed with a few other items. Or filling a tray with multiple small candles can create that cozy atmosphere on those chilly evenings.
  • Grab a poinsettia and place it in a unique container.

Winter Coffee Table Décor Ideas:

One of the hardest seasons to decorate for may be Winter. Winter is Britt’s favourite season. It is a time to embrace simplicity and enjoy the presence of your family within your home! Rather than thinking your décor looks simple or boring use this time to clean and purge your home and prepare for the abundance that Spring can bring. When it comes to styling a coffee table here are a few minimalist type ideas that we love:

Twinkle Lights
  • A bucket filled with skinny taper candles! These skinny candles are so unique and are so pretty simply piled in a bucket or vase.
  • Place a stack of books on the centre of your table. Grab some books that look pretty but are also a great read on those slow afternoons!
  • Grab a basket or trug and fill it with linen.
  • Twinkle Lights are also great to continue into your winter décor. Twinkle lights seem to cheer us up and especially during the longer winter months that soft glow can be very welcoming in the dark evenings.

Britt and Deb both love to keep their décor simple while incorporating unique and salvaged décor. Let us know what season you love to decorate for the most?
