7 Best Entry Table Decorating Ideas for Spring

Hey friends, today I’m sharing 7 Key Elements for Entry Table Decor Ideas that are budget friendly ideas to get your entryway ready 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 every thing 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.

Pinterest Challenge

Today’s post is part of a Monthly Pinterest Challenge which is hosted by Cindy at County Road 407. This month’s inspiration photo comes from Leen at Sand Dollar Lane. I love doing these challenges because it allows me to think outside the box and encourages a new perspective for my home decor.

It’s always so fun to see each participants take on the 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 so glad you are here. I loved Lora’s creative Spring vignette.

7 Key Elements

I began today’s design by choosing 7 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 spend any money to pull together.

  • Lamp
  • Basket
  • Greenery
  • Books
  • Vintage Bottles
  • White Ceramic
  • Tray

A few different design elements are to be noted.

First, my table doesn’t have a lower shelf but I have a shelf above my table. So although the elements are all included, the arrangement is completely different.

First, let’s talk about the lamp. I decided to move 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 a completely 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 with 7 Key Elements

Entry Table Decor Ideas – Basket Texture

This vignette is basically neutrals so adding texture is very important.

Although there isn’t room for my basket on the entry table, it works perfectly at the side. Today it is filled with loose airy stems and I added a metal monogram tag to the handle.

This thrifted basket has been a favorite and is another item I move around a lot.

Greenery Adds 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……

Add greenery for Spring Entry Table

Sometimes it’s hard to tell. The boxwood is the only real greenery and 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 I felt it was a little short for this location. Therefore, I added a couple 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.

Vintage Bottles

I love blue vintage medicine bottles and I’m lucky enough to have a small collection.

When saw that Leen used 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.

Vintage Medicine Bottle for Spring Decor

I decided to divide 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 together. For this vignette, I used two on the shelf and one on the tray below.

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 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.

Here I’m using a wooden tray that covers approximately 1/2 of the entry table.

Faux and Real Greenery mix with neutrals for a Spring Entry Table Idea

I love the oversize dimension because it is perfect for holding books, bottles, porcelain, two containers of greenery and a tiny bird as well.

I love that all the elements chosen will be perfect for the entire Spring and Summer as well. I’m always moving things around seasonally but these elements will easily work all the way through August.

Entry Table Decorating Ideas for Spring

In addition to the 7 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.

Textures are key with a neutral entry table

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 from many years ago. She said the girl in the painting reminded her of me so therefore, 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 a couple of year now. You may remember seeing it here when I shared the Real Truth about Deconstructing a Chair! Whew! See what I learned about that here.

I hope you enjoyed these Spring Entry Table Ideas and that you will be inspired to reimagine your own decor when decorating for Spring.

I would have never thought to incorporate the shelf above the table. That is pure genius and I love it! And you know I love your farmhouse treasures. I'm looking forward to getting back down to our farmhouse although it's going to need all kinds of cleaning and fluffing. Wish you could come give me some new decorating ideas. I sometimes get so stuck in my ways. Are you like that with your beach house? Anyway, you hit this challenge out of the park friend! It all looks fantastic and perfectly spring. Thanks for joining in.
