5 Ways To Style Your Coffee Table For Fall

Decorating for fall is one of my favorite things to do, except maybe decorate for Christmas!  Hi I am Sara from Twelve On Main and am excited to be sharing here today!  Sometimes decorating for the holidays can seem daunting.  And there is always one space in my house that can be difficult to decide what to do.  So, I have 5 different ways to style a coffee table for fall.

I love styling my coffee tables and change them quite often.  So, I thought I would spend a little time at home showing you how easy it is to switch them out. All you need are a few staple items that can be used throughout the year (no matter the season) and some season- specific items.

I like to have a collection of items in my home that make decorating a coffee table easy:

  • Books
  • Vases
  • Antlers
  • Blanket
  • Trays/bowls

These are some staple items that I always have in my home and use in different places throughout the year. They make it much easier to decorate a coffee table anytime.

I definitely lean towards a more rustic/farmhouse feel in my home, and am going to use my round DIY wire spool coffee table as the base.

This first way I decorate my coffee table for fall is with some books, white pitchers, and DIY white velvet pumpkins.  Using books on a coffee table just make sense.  I love using books in my décor and if you flip them with the spines of the books on the inside, the edges of the book create a very interesting look. I added one of my found deer antlers as well.

My second fall coffee table is all about sunflowers, white pumpkins, and an easy DIY reversible sign.  Once again I used some books to add height to the pumpkins. And again threw in that deer antler, because let’s get real.  They just look cool!

My third coffee table is all about pumpkins.  I used my antique dough bowl as a landing place for all those pumpkins.  Using real or fake pumpkins is totally up to you.  I have found that I really like using faux pumpkins, especially if real ones aren’t available yet.

I also added a plaid blanket draped to the side and that trusty old deer antler.  I tell you, they work with almost any arrangement!

My last two fall coffee table ideas are simple- which is what I love.  What about a pile of books, topped with a few simple apples?  Apples are so very fall since this is when the harvest happens.

My last way to decorate a coffee table for fall is super simple.  I love this faux farmhouse scale, and by simply adding some velvet pumpkins to the top, I have created a simple fall coffee table.  Do you spy my little (big) pup hanging out?  I can’t get away from him very much.  He likes to be right where we always are.

So, did you find some new inspiration when it comes to decorating your coffee table for fall?  My biggest advice when styling a coffee table or anything else is to keep it simple.  Don’t overwhelm yourself and shop your house to find some really great options.

I hope you enjoy the rest of fall!
