Fun Decorations for Your Coffee Table

Have you ever looked at the coffee table in your living room and thought, “What can I put there to not only look pretty but also something people would find interesting or useful?” Well luckily for you, you have come to the right place! We have several ideas that will help add a little extra pizazz to your family room to make it even more unique.

An On This Day Book

There are plenty of places where you can find books that recall events from every single day of the year. Now you might be thinking, why would I want this? It is a fun way to engage guests you have at your house. Tell them to look up their birthdays and tell you what happened in history on that day. Maybe even have them sign the book on their birthdays. Every day you can look at your book, and one day it might just help you remember that it’s your sister’s birthday and save you from the silent treatment in case you forgot. It’s your very own calendar in a book!

Candles, Candles, and more Candles!

Everyone loves a good candle. From the unique scents they harbor to the aesthetic display they create, you can’t go wrong. We personally love a good Nest Candle! Their scents are unmatched and they come in a variety of colors. Two of our favorites are the Blue Cypress & Snow and the Amalfi Lemon & Mint. They even release seasonal scents such as Pumpkin Chai, pictured above. These candles make your house smell delightful and are the perfect coffee table topper!

An Instant Photo Album

Are you constantly entertaining guests at your house? Whether it be your friends, your kid’s friends, or family, memories are always being made. With smartphones these days, it is easy to capture pictures, but it has almost become impersonal. Here is the solution to that! A polaroid camera with a photo album to leave on the coffee table! This way, you can snap a picture, let it develop and immediately put it into the photo album to capture all the memories being made in your home. A lot of us claim we will make photo albums, but never get around to it. This helps to avoid the inevitable procrastination and have a fun, unique photo album that is a continuous work in progress.

Assorted Accessories

We love to mix things up! By incorporating accessories with various heights, you can create different layers of depth on your table. You can even group assorted accessories into trays to create dimensions. Many people think you need to have a theme, but that’s simply not the case! The picture above is from our showroom in Brielle, New Jersey, and features a tray with different books, a large fish sculpture, and some greenery to add a kiss of life.

When decorating your space, the possibilities are endless. With these suggestions, you can take your entertaining space to the next level and leave a lasting, positive impression on guests. It truly is the small things that matter most, especially when it comes to designing! Not only are each of these items helpful for entertaining, but they are all a small part of what makes your house a home. Contact us at to set up a consultation!
