Tabletop Tuesday - Coffee Table

I'm joining in the Tabletop Tuesday meme this week with a coffee table vignette.  This fun event is hosted each Tuesday by Barb at Grits and Glamour.  Please visit Barb and spend some time browsing all the beautiful tabletop ideas that have been presented this week.

Real coffee tables don't eat quiche, but they must have magazines.  I have my latest mags displayed here within easy reach so that I can peruse them at my leisure (usually more than once before I store them away).

The coffee table has a rather large surface area, so I have paired two Southern Living At Home hurricanes, loaded with pear and cherry goodness.  I'm a SLAH maniac and have several pieces that I use all over my house.  Love their beautiful items.  The Hemminway hurricane is filled with pears and the large Madeline hurricane is filled with cherries.  If you need a great SLAH Consultant, check out my post here.

A Vintage cut glass compote holds a couple extra pears.

Various family photos.

All The Best,
Pin It!

So pretty! I have magazines on my coffee tables, too, but not organized nearly as prettily as yours. You have inspired me.

Very pretty, Anita! Love the hurricanes! And, you just reminded me that I put some older issues of my magazines on my coffee table to go through and either save or recycle.

This is so pretty! Coffee tables for SOME reason are hard for me to accessorize, I don't know why!

Yours is beautiful!

This looks really pretty, I love the use of the cherries and pears, but I would probably be eating them! HA! Great JOB! Cindy

Hi Anita! Oh, I love how your coffee table looks. They're hard for me to decorate. I never feel like mine looks right! I love those hurricanes and the big bowl for your mags! I just may need to borrow that idea!
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I wish my coffeetable looked like that. Dr.Gollum has destroyed it. LOL The metal bowl is a great idea for magazines, and I love the hurricanes, too. What's not to love?
