3 Ways to Decorate a Sofa Table for Spring

I’m sharing 3 Ways to Decorate Sofa Table for Spring. I used thrifted spring décor collected from thrift stores and flea markets. I couldn’t decide which style I liked best and can’t wait to see which decorating sofa table ideas is your favorite.

It’s time for Spring Decorating, and I’ve joined Cindy at County Road 407 for her monthly Pinterest Challenge. This month we are styling a Sofa Table for Spring, and our Inspiration Photo comes from Sincerely Marie Designs.

If you are joining me from Kim at Shiplap and Shells, I’m so glad you made it across the country. Isn’t Kim’s Table Vignette just stunning?

Decorating Sofa Table Ideas

Today I’m styling the hand-built sofa table in our loft space. It’s at the back of our sectional sofa and is a piece my husband made over 35 years ago.

Its sleek, simple style works well with any décor style, and the lower shelf makes it a fun piece to style.

Although I’m stying the table three different ways, almost everything has been pulled from my thrift store stash.

Step one to Decorate Sofa Table

First, to decorate the sofa table, you must clear the area you wish to decorate. You will find you are more creative once all the clutter is gone.

Sofa Table Decorating Ideas For Spring – Greenery Option

The first sofa table decorating idea is to fill the table with greenery.

A couple of DIY topiaries are the focal point. In addition, glass cloches, a mirror, and candles create extra light in the space.

To brighten the darker lower shelf, I add a mirror, a cloche & a candle. The Angel Vine is natural. However, all the other greenery is faux.

Note: When using a candle on a lower shelf, you want to be sure the flame isn’t close to any item that could catch on fire. If in doubt, use a flameless battery-operated candle.

The top of the sofa table holds another glass cloche filled with faux lavender inside a thrifted handmade basket.

What do you do with a Broken Light Fixture? Turn it into a Lantern, of course. You can see the tutorial on how I repurposed this piece last Spring.

Birds & Books

For the second option to Decorate Sofa Table for Spring, I chose this cute bird with stacks of books as the focus.

I used a variety of colored books to fill the bottom shelve because the cheerful colors helped to brighten the dark shelf. In addition, a bird’s nest looks cute, resting on the edge of the book.

I added a shiny brass container filled with lambs ear and white flowers to enhance this stack of coffee table books. You may remember that it was a recent thrift store deal.

The Third Way to Decorate a Sofa Table for Spring

I used a combination of items from the previous two tables for the third decorating sofa table ideas. There is a cute bird, books, and greenery, which all complement the addition of soft Spring Tulips.

To add height, a chicken wire covered cloche houses a cute bird and bird nest.

Tulips are a favorite, and this recent thrift store milk glass vase looks priceless and filled with the beauties. The vase was a great find from a recent Thrifting with the Gals excursion.

In addition, a few books and two DIY topiaries fill the lower shelf.
