Coffee Table Talk: Spring Edition

“On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works,
I will meditate”
‭Psalm‬ ‭145‬:‭5‬

With the arrival of a new season, our coffee table follows suit!  Changing out the elements keeps things fresh and interesting.  I no longer feel it necessary to change all of my tabletops regularly (too many other things to do), but our coffee table is one that gets attention each season.  You can see our winter version here: Coffee Table Talk: Winter Edition.  For this particular time of year,  I added some touches of spring and changed out the books, which are always within reach for reading or perusing.  What is a coffee table without coffee table books or perhaps, a place to rest your feet? I love putting together vignettes.  Once again…shop your house, you might be surprised at what you find!  Our French antique coffee table with inlaid wood…still a favorite find! The Wedgwood pitcher holds herbs from my little garden…mint, rosemary, and chive blooms! Sweet box that contained soaps is perfect for this season with its butterflies and flowers!  Can you believe it is also a music box that plays Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake”! A great read by Beth Moore! I wish you could smell the herbs…rosemary is Butch’s favorite! Every coffee table needs a little snack – roasted pecans with sea salt on antique depression glass! Jeweled birds that are actually boxes..birds always herald spring! Vintage tole tray is ideal for grouping items! An orchid is a happy addition to our spring coffee table! Looking through to the sofa you can see a unique needlepoint pillow-Victorian ladies playing tennis!  One of the coffee table books is an all-time favorite designer, Charles Faudree.  He knew how to do country French to perfection!  His often used phrase was, “It’s not about the match, but the mix!” Faux tortoise-handle magnifying glassDo you often make changes on your tabletops, or do you find an arrangement that you like and leave it?  I am more apt to leave my arrangements now, and maybe add a new scented candle or fresh flowers!  What is on your coffee table during spring?

    I can imagine some wonderful conversations that could go on around this lovely and inviting coffee table. Beautiful and elegant, Pam.

  2. Belinda Letchford says:

    I love this idea – as our children grow older I have used the coffee table for different things – but I love the way you bring beauty into your home – and variety – via the coffee table. Something for me to think about!

    • Thanks so much, Belinda! With small children, you have to be mindful of what you place on the coffee table! When grandchildren come along, mine will probably change drastically! Blessings, Pam

  3. Pam, your vignette is just lovely and so is your home! So comfortable and romantic at the same time! I found you via Titus 2 Tuesday and enjoyed my visit very much! Have a lovely week :)

  4. Love the tole tray and the needlepoint pillow, I find myself having a harder time of changing out my things for each season, don’t know how much longer I will be changing everything in the rooms

    Charming, my dear :) Your coffee table invites your guests to sit around it and fellowship and of course a little snack is always a must. I have a beautiful Hope Chest that belonged to my great-great-grandmother and I was blessed to have it passed down to me. I use it was my coffee table since I don’t have anywhere else to put it and I love seeing it out in the open :)

    Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration, sweet friend!

    I don’t have a coffee table big enough to decorate, but I’m working on it. Yours looks very elegant.

    Beautiful! Isn’t creating vignettes so much fun? A stroll through my herb garden is always a delight for the senses.. I’m sure yours smell delicious! My chives are just about to bloom. hanks for sharing with SYC.

  8. Cindy says:

    Beautiful! I’ve been searching and searching for a wicker tray for the trunk in front of my great room couch…no luck yet!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!
