How to Decorate a Coffee Table for Christmas

It’s so fun and easy to decorate a coffee table for Christmas! Just follow these simple steps:

  • Start with a large tray to corral your decor. I used a round thrift store aluminum tray.
  • Pick a color scheme. This year, I chose metallics and bold colors.
  • Search through your stash for Christmas decor in your chosen colors. Make sure to include plenty of vintage items for nostalgia. I spelled out NOEL with vintage children’s blocks and showcased my collection of vintage ornaments.
  • Look for items with varying degrees of height for visual interest. I used a bottle brush tree under a cloche and a sparkly pillar candle on a pedestal.
  • Arrange the items inside the tray. Try not to overcrowd. You don’t want it to look cluttered, and fewer items will stand out. Move them around until you’re happy with the arrangement.

Don’t forget to place a couple of Christmas related books next to the tray. These are two of my favorites. You’ll still have plenty of room to put your feet up or set down a mug of hot cocoa 😉

Mardi was happy with the new look! What’s a couch without a little dog hair, am I right?
