Six Tips For Accessorizing a Tabletop

Six Tips For Accessorizing a Tabletop | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

Can I ask you a personal question?
What's on your entrance hall table?

If it's anything like mine, 
you might find:

 Keys
Mail
Things to return to Home Goods
Cell phone
Purse
Gloves
A bag of groceries
Dog leash
Homework
Half a bagel 
Newspaper
 
I needed to put a stop to this insanity.
 I spiffed it up with some pretty accessories,
so it would make a nice impression when people came in, 
but really, so there would be less surface space to junk up.

It worked.
 Kind of. 

Of course, now all that stuff is somewhere else, but...
the table has stayed pretty much clutter-free.

If you have a table you'd like to accessorize,
I've got six tips for you over at A Little CLAIREificaton today.

Click right here and it will take you there.

As always, I'd love for you to leave me a comment over at Claire's, 

just so I know that you stopped by.

  1. I have a vignette of birds and a nest...in a pic a few posts back. One of my pet peeves is when people visit and set their "stuff" on my entry hall table...even when it is decorated. Have to politely move stuff - and my table is an antique wood one. *sigh*

    Checking out link...

  3. What a lovely post you did over at the other blog today. I love your entry way it's so pretty and elegant. It snowed all day today. No spring in sight. Maybe soon I hope. Have a nice Friday and weekend.

  4. I will head over there now. I don't have a table in our foyer anymore, but I do have a bench. That's where most people's things end up that come over to visit. Our stuff ends up in the kitchen most of the time. I hate all of the clutter too. But, we do have to live here. LOL!

  10. I tried to leave a comment, but I'm not sure it worked. It looks lovely :)

    I don't have an entrance table, but you could use that advice with many things.

  11. I agree, it's hard to have an entrance that doesn't get junked up! I have a chair and coat hooks at my kitchen entrance and they are always piled with stuff.
    I would love for you to stop by my blog and join our Something to Talk About link party each weeK!
    We are Monday-Thursday.
    Have a great day!
