No one knows better than me that spring is not here yet. In fact, it’s not even close…but that isn’t going to stop me from anticipating that first warm day, or when the hostas pop through the soil. Anticipation is one of life’s simple pleasures, so with that thought in mind, I’d like to share some easy ways to add a touch of spring to your coffee table.

The versatility of trays is amazing, and they make the perfect starting point for any spring coffee table vignette. There is no hard and fast rule in regards to what size or shape should be used. It’s fine to use a round tray on a round table…and it’s equally OK to use a square or rectangular tray.

Coffee tables and books go hand-in-hand. There have been a few times in my life when I bought a book simply because I liked the cover. So gather your prettiest books, or ones that have a special meaning, and put them out on your spring coffee table. Gardening books, or books about flowers, are perfect for this!

Think outside the box when it comes to lanterns. A candle isn’t the only thing that looks good in a lantern! Faux eggs, a small nest, faux cherry blossom branches, and small moss balls are just a few suggestions for ways to add interest to a lantern.

Kelly has had a rough go of it the past few months. She had a large cyst removed, and there were complications with the healing process. Shortly after we got that healed, she developed pancreatitis. She was very sick, and had to be hospitalized. Thankfully, she has come through everything, and seems to be back to her normal, sweet self. She’ll soon be 12, which I can hardly believe. Hopefully, we have many more years to hang out together!
