Early Spring Coffee Table Styling Ideas (March Coffee Table Talk!)

Early Spring Coffee Table Easter Coffee Table

Style an early spring coffee table with garden-inspired decorative accessories and gardening books that hint to the promise of spring’s imminent arrival, despite lingering chilly temperatures.

Happy Spring  and almost Easter my friends! There’s just something about the sunshine and all the possibilities of the spring garden that reignites my nesting instincts, how about you? After suffering from the winter doldrums and just being overwhelmed from the stress of moving and renovations, I am finally getting into some kind of groove as far as decorating our new spaces and blogging more. With that in mind, I am starting a new “Coffee Table Talk” monthly series about what’s on my early living room coffee table! *This post contains affiliate links.


One of the first finds for our new home was this amazing large wood coffee table with a glass top. I haven’t had a real coffee table in years (I previously used an old trunk) so it has been fun to decorate it seasonally. 




For spring I switched out my gold florentine styled tray for a new hyacinth basket tray with handles to bring in some organic texture for spring and summer too.



I styled the tray with the following items:  a chinoiserie vase filled with white real touch tulips, a couple of moss spheres, a deer antler shed,  a realistic faux pothos in an aged terra cotta pot, small velvet carrots tucked in a mossy nest and a stack of vintage books topped with a collection of vintage plates under a candle and glass cloche.



This year St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are both in March, so my table styling is a nod to both holidays. Of course March is all about the greening of spring so green things are a must!


This very book about Ireland was one of the books I purchased at the estate sale at THIS HOUSE the day I decided that one day it simply would be be our home!



I also have stacks some of my most favorite gardening books to draw inspiration for early spring planting and to help get my gardening fix during the lingering cold days that prevent me from getting out in the garden, including Containers In the Garden by Claus Dalby,  the brand new book The Cottage Garden by Claus Dalby, The Armchair Book of Gardens (a favorite I have shared before) and a Golf Antiques for the hubs!  I also have The Garden Journal by Linda Vater on display, but I will share more details about that book all about starting the journal with some photos on my April Coffee Table Talk post.) 



On my early spring home tour I explained that I am still loving my rusty orange curtains for March and wanted to continue to use them into April. It was important to style the coffee table with items to tie in with that color.


The little orange velvet carrots were the perfect, inexpensive hobby lobby find to do just that, along with the sweet mossy bunny with an orange carrot! I think the velvet carrots look so elegant in the gold rimmed vintage dish too!


The cover of the Claus Dalby book, Containers in the garden is perfect too, with a stunning collection of pots and containers filled with various shades of orange and coral tulips as well as lots of beautiful green plants. I can’t recommend this book enough if you love beautiful garden imagery and want to explore all the possibilities related to container gardening.

Discovering Claus Dalby and his beautiful use of containers for growing spring bulbs is what inspired me to start growing my own spring container gardens! This past fall we were too busy still moving the last items from the yellow brick home and renovating, so I didn’t get a chance to plant any tulip bulbs. Still I am gleaning inspiration from this book for growing all kinds of plants and flowers in containers on our new deck!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my early spring coffee table and that you have found inspiration for your own spring coffee table look, as well as new books to explore! I plan to keep this coffee table  through April since Easter is early this year, and I want to enjoy my bunnies and carrots a while longer. I will share another “coffee table talk” post when I change the table in April. I hope you will stop back by for this new series each month!
