Hey friends, I’m sharing 7 Key Elements for Entry Table Decor Ideas that are budget-friendly ideas to prepare your entryway for Spring.
I don’t have an entryway per se, but I do have a console table beside my front entry doors, so I guess that counts.
Y’all know that I love budget-friendly decorating, and today is no exception.
Most everything is something I moved from another spot in the house and is either thrifted, DIY, or vintage. I didn’t add any new items to create this vignette.
I can’t wait to see what you think.

Today’s post is part of a Monthly Pinterest Challenge which Cindy at County Road 407 hosts. This month’s inspiration photo comes from Leen at Sand Dollar Lane. I love doing these challenges because they allow me to think outside the box and encourage a new perspective for my home decor.
It’s always so fun to see each participant take on an inspiration idea, so be sure to check out all the links at the end of today’s post. If you are joining me from Lora Bloomquist, I’m happy you are here. I loved Lora’s creative Spring vignette.
7 Key Elements For Entry Table
I began today’s design by choosing seven key elements of Leen’s entry table that I could include on my table. These were items that I had on hand, and I wouldn’t have to spend any money to pull them together.
- Vintage Bottles
- White Ceramic
A few different design elements are to be noted.
First, my table doesn’t have a lower shelf, but I have a shelf above the table. So although the elements are all included, the arrangement is entirely different.
Entry Table Ideas
First, let’s talk about the lamp. I moved the DIY Thrift Store Lamp from my bedroom for this vignette.
And guess what? I love it here.
I encourage you to move your decor around because the lamp has an entirely different feel in this location.
Now I have to find a new lamp for the bedroom! To the thrift store, I go. LOL
Entry Table Decor Ideas – Basket Texture
This vignette is basically neutrals, so adding texture is very important.
This thrifted basket has been a favorite and is another item I often move around.
Add Greenery For Texture
I’ve used a mix of faux and real greenery for the Entry Table for Spring.
Can you tell which is real and which is faux? Probably not that hard to do but……
How Long Will Natural Boxwood Last Inside?
Sometimes it’s hard to tell. The boxwood is the only natural greenery; I’ve had it in the house since Christmas!
I just shared a Fresh Boxwood Topiary tutorial, and the most asked question was, “How Long Will It Last?”
The answer is several months when cut in the winter months.
I’ve left boxwood in containers for a year with success. It takes several months for the leaves to turn brown.
If you place your container where it’s not disturbed, it will last a long time. You can see more about keeping natural greenery fresh here.
Books are a Great Entry Table Decor Idea
I love vintage books and incorporate them in many of my decor choices. They are great for many reasons, including using them as a riser.
The lamp added from the bedroom has great texture and girth, but it was a little short for this location. Therefore, I added a couple of coffee table books and ta-da; the lamp is the perfect height.
The small urn and porcelain vases on the wall shelf also benefit from vintage books mixed with the decor.
I love blue vintage medicine bottles, and I’m lucky enough to have a small collection.
When I saw Leen use them in her vignette, I immediately ran to my bathroom and gathered my collection.
This is another example of reimagining decor in a new space.
I’ve had them in the bathroom since we moved into the farmhouse, and that’s where they have stayed. Although they were displayed, no one got to enjoy them but us.
I love being inspired to try new things and to look at my collections in a new way.
I divided my collection with a few pieces on the upper shelf and a few on the entry table.
A few porcelain pieces for entry table ideas
I have a trio of small porcelain vases and love to group them. I used two on the shelf and one on the tray below for this vignette.
Did you know it’s best to decorate with an odd number of items? It creates more interest than even numbers.
There are exceptions to this rule, but that’s for another day. Let’s get back to the entry table.

Add a Tray as part of the Entry Table Decor Ideas
Y’all, I love trays so much that I have a small (large) collection. LOL
They are perfect for pulling a vignette together. I use them all around the house and especially for tablescapes.
I’m using a wooden tray covering approximately 1/2 of the entry table.
I love the oversize dimension because it is perfect for holding books, bottles, porcelain, two containers of greenery, and a tiny bird.
I love that all the elements chosen will also be perfect for the entire Spring and Summer. I’m always moving things around seasonally, but these elements will easily work through August.
Entry Table Decorating Ideas for Spring
In addition to the seven elements that the inspiration photo included, I added a few elements of my own.
Below the table, I included a wooden hat box filled with a pillow and some linens, which rests in front of a vintage arched window frame.
In addition, I added a vintage print and mirror above the entry table, and a small neutral felt garland hangs from the shelf.
The vintage art was a gift from my mother-in-law many years ago. She said the girl in the painting reminded her of me, so it’s a treasured reminder of her thoughtfulness.
The deconstructed chair was also pulled from the bedroom. It has been in and out of the entryway for several years. You may remember seeing it here when I shared the Real Truth about Deconstructing a Chair! Whew! Please take a look at what I learned about that here.
I hope you enjoyed these Spring Entry Table Ideas and that you will be inspired to reimagine your decor when decorating for Spring.
