Show Us Your Life: Decorating Tables...

Although you've probably already seen these pictures in separate home tour posts, I thought I'd combine them all here and link up with Kelly to show you guys how we've decorated our dining room table, coffee table, and side tables.  My style is pretty simple, but we're pretty happy, for the most part, with how things look right now (although it'd be fabulous if you could ignore our chandelier... I've been searching for the perfect thing and am having so much trouble!).


This is our dining room table (from Pottery Barn, chairs also from there, as well).  I found these cloches at World Market last Christmas and ended up putting pine cones in the smaller ones with the candles in the larger one for the holidays.  After we took down our Christmas stuff, the smaller ones stayed empty for what seemed like forever until I stumbled across the greenery at Southern Simplicity a few months ago.


I had also picked up the table runner (on Etsy) last Christmas but felt like it was too busy with all other stuff on the table.  I added it back a month or so ago and really like what it adds to the simplicity of the cloches, so it's staying for now. :)


Here's our coffee table (from here).  I scored the lanterns on clearance last year, and the candles are from Target.  The book was a Pottery Barn find.  After coveting it for a few months, I finally broke down and bought it.


Here's the side table in our living room (from here).


More glass, apparently.  The pears are from Target, and I can't remember where I found the greenery.  The @ is also from Southern Simplicity.  The messy stack of books definitely need to find a new resting place.

As a bonus, here's the buffet that sits in our dining room (from here).


I'm actually not in love with what we've got going on here, but there are too many other projects in line before this one for me to even think about changing it right now.

So that's how we've accessorized our home so far.  Do you guys have any tricks/tips you can share?

Very pretty!! I've never been to Pottery Barn but I've heard they have amazing stuff. I just made my first trip to Ikea in Dallas last month and can't WAIT to go back. Pottery Barn will most certainly be on my list of places to visit next!

I especially love the colors and details you're using in your vignettes.
Can you believe it's 7pm and it's 108 degrees in my area?!! (I live in Vegas) I'm so looking forward to the cooler temps!!
Have a terrific week.
